“A Magical Day to Remember.............”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2011

This hotel is unique...located on the inner lakes of Lough Ree and as you drive into it, the setting is breathtaking!!!

Having worked in the hotel industry in Ireland and abroad, we were quite fussy when it came to choosing our wedding venue. We are delighted we chose this premier venue. We would pick up on small details and this hotel covers it all. The attention to detail from the time of booking to our wedding day was excellent. Nothing was any trouble and the wedding team provided great suggestions in the planning of the big day. Our Guests were overwhelmed by the friendly and welcoming atmosphere, some who work in the hotel industry were also very impressed.

The food was amazing and each of our guests could not stop commenting on how delicious it was. All staff were professional and provided a high quality of service from the time of check in, to the bar, banqueting suite and bedrooms. In our opinion each department provided a five star service. There is no other banqueting suite that we have seen that is designed in order to display a spectacular view while you dine!

The bedrooms are so spacious, airy and again with beautiful views. Stepping out on to the balcony at the end of our wedding night we would see the lights of Athlone glistening in the distance and we felt we are in a different country.

We cannot express our huge gratitude to all the Staff who truly made our day so magical and memorable. We would without doubt recommend Glasson Country House Hotel to anyone and especially any wedding couples who are looking for that "extra special" day!

lovely bedrooms, beautiful setting in a golf course on Lough Ree. Nice staff. Resaonable breakfast buffet. Evening menu in the bar is poor. Stay but don't eat dinner.

Just returned from a two night stay and am very disappointed with this hotel for a four star hotel that states that it has a fine dining restaurant they served dinner in the bar each night and the standard of the food was poor the service was very slow and the staff serving on the second night very rude. The " dining room" which was only used for breakfast was far from a fine dining room they did'nt even have a table cloth on the table and some of the chairs were stained. The hallway that leads into the dining room had a "musty smell". The room was clean and good size with with a nice view of the lake and golf course. I will not be returning to this hotel and could not recommend it to anyone

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your comments. We are delighted you liked your room and our beautiful setting. We are dissappointed you did not enjoy the rest of your experience. Our ethos at Glasson is very much "customer centered", we really try to care of and look after our guests. We usually give people the choice to have dinner in either our bar or restaurant. Some poeple love to stay in the bar becuase of the panaromic views. It is so disappointing when customers are not happy.

Your comments have been passed to the entire team. If you wish to talk to me personally about your experience please email me on ----------.

Kindest Regards,
Louise

Hi all, I attended a wedding on Friday 5th in the Glasson Hotel, It was amazing!!
The best hotel we have stayed in! We stayed in room 119 - What a view it was stunning! The room was huge, airy, clean and the bed was so comfortable! Bathroom had a walk in shower and twin sinks - Sheer luxury!
Breakfast had great variety and was delicious good quality food!
Staff were friendly with no rush been put on us to check out and accomadated those who
were a little late for breakfast - Thats proper service!
We did'nt get to use any of the leisure centre facilities so I cannot comment on them!
We cannot wait to go away to this hotel in the future! Highly recommend it!

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view room - its worth it!

Stayed here with 15 golfers and played a golf open over the 2 days. We were looked after superbly by all the staff on both days. The course itself is in great condition and offers challenges and rewards to golfers of any level. Our group is very varied handicap wise and everyone loved it. The food and rooms were both excellent and I didn't hear one complaint from anyone. Personally I will try my best to come back with my family and I would certainly recommend it as a golfing venue but it also stands up as a relaxing hotel breakaway too. Top marks for everything.

I stayed in this hotel for one night only back in February. On arrival our room had been upgraded at no extra costs. The room was very comfortable. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly with them going so far to loan me a pair of cuff links, as I had forgotten some. Unfortunately we missed breakfast as we availed of the hospitality in the residents bar a little too late.
I don't play golf but if those facilities are on par (sic) with the rest of the hotel then I'm sure you will have a great time staying here.
