Reviewed August 16, 2010

Just back from a most fantastic few days in lovely hotel. The setting is amazing, golf course in great condition, staff so nice, helpful and friendly. Food divine and again we are coeliacs and they went to huge trouble for us - thank you Chef!! Most appreciated.
New extension is just gorgeous. Read a bad review before I went and I was a bit apprehensive. Now - go and judge for yourself. Smashing. 10/10. Thanks a million.

This is my sixth stay at Glasson Golf Hotel and each visit has been a wonderful experience.
What makes it all work is the staff getting that balance of professionalism and friendliness down to a fine art.
The golf course is a well manicured test of golf with a great variation of holes with trees and of course the dreaded water.
The restaurant is a must experience with a well varied menu and very well presented food.
The rooms are very comfortable and clean and have all the facilities you would expect from a top hotel.
A beautiful Hotel with magnificent views already looking forward to my next visit.

We stayed for three nights in a suite with both golf course and lake views. The staff were very friendly from the time we walked in the door through to checkout. They responded quickly to all queries and were very helpful.

The suite was extremely spacious and we really enjoyed sitting on the balcony admiring the views. The ensuite had a seperate bath and shower and we loved the cosy underfloor heating. Upgrading to a suite is thoroughly recommended.

The new bar and function room have breathtaking views and we were only sorry that we didn't have a wedding to plan. Although being outside of Athlone town centre, it was within a short drive of numerous amenities which kept our child occupied. We even went swimming each morning.

We enjoyed our stay immensely and it must be utopia for golfers.

We got married last month in Glasson and it was the best day ever. The venue was stunning with breathtaking scenery, service was perfect and the newly opened function room was simply the best around. Our party involved 130 in all and everyone felt well looked after. The staff were always helpful and it was service with a smile. Our guests had travelled from all over the world and they all had a great time.

The celebrations went on for 2 whole days. The wedding was held on a friday and saturday was spent recuperating which was followed by a boat trip on the lake and an evening barbecue. The food was superb throughout, regardless of the large numbers.

We visited the hotel soon after our honeymoon, just for dinner and were greeted with the same welcome. It is our humble opinion that if you are looking for a spectacular venue for a wedding and want to leave the stress and strain behind, choose this hotel and you will not be disappointed.

The golf course is incredible and the local village has good pub/restaurants too.

Although we enjoyed a lovely stay at this hotel we were quite suprised at the level of cleanliness in common areas such as the stairwells,window sills etc.The wooden trim along the stairs was covered in a thick layer of dust on both sides and the inside of the window sills were covered with dead flies along with layers of dust.None of the brass rails appear to be polished and looked very grubby.Our bedroom was a fantastic size...very spacious with a beautiful view but the hook for the curtain tie back was broken of the wall.One light did not work,another had a bulb missing and the shaving mirror in the bathroom had no mirror... The unit in which the TV sat was grey with dust particularly on the under part,as was the bed headboard, picture frames...Not something you expect with a Four Star Hotel. As we had our baby with us, we used the restaurant and bar highchairs on several occasions.We had to clean them down each time as the dirt & grime seemed to be ground into them...not very hygenic for a baby/small child. Another disappointing aspect was that there did not seem to be any wheelchair access or ramp into the main door for the reception area...the only ramp into the hotel lead to a locked door on the opposite end of the hotel. The staff in all areas were VERY helpful & friendly & the food was excellent.

We stayed midweek on a voucher deal and had a choice of 57 hotels in Ireland to choose from for our break and all at the great rate for 3BB&1D of 200 euro! We choose Glasson solely on the recommendation of friends and the reviews of this web site.

Check-in was friendly and efficient and we were made feel very welcome indeed. The view from our lake front room is every bit magnificent and beautiful as the photos on tripadvisor. But the room itself was different from the pictures on this site - no where near as nice sadly. Another guest we met showed me their standard room and it was of a much higher standard. We had low flying swallows which had built there nest just above the window & resulted in bird poop blowing in on the inside sill when we opened the windows too wide. No bottled water was provided and the tea/coffee was only replenished once during our stay. By modern hotel standards the room was dated and the TV was tiny. Beds were ok, pillows hard and the towels and toiletries were refreshed daily.
The food steadily improved as our stay progressed and i know we weren't alone in complaining about it but at least we felt our feedback was being listened too. There was a set dinner for around 38 Euro ,no a la carte. If you like undressed green leaves you'll be delighted cause you get loads with everything cold or hot!! The potatoes are served with round scoops a la school dinners and the food layered above this. Woeful presentation. The recent addition of the new restaurant/banqueting area is very beautiful but i didn't enjoy eating my dinner from a tiny table and sitting through two large golfing groups do their prize giving! This open plan area serves as breakfast room, dining room, snack bar, lounge bar, etc

This is a golf club with accommodation and attracts golfing societies and corporate golf outings. Golfers will love this place and indeed they seem to! My husband enjoyed the hilly golf course(40euro). Others though will need to factor in the cost of buggy hire

In summary the hotel can do better. The quality of food and standard of housekeeping really needs to keep improving, allocating rooms depending on the rate paid made me feel like a second class guest. Front of house staff are trying really hard and compensate for many of the hotels shortcomings.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is planning a wedding or even a weekend stay. The rooms were lovely. The views were amazing. We found it very relaxing and the staff were very professional and friendly. The function room was recently done up and it is an ideal room for a wedding because it's so big and it overlooks the lake. I would definitely recommend to anyone a trip to this hotel.
