“Excellent Hotel”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

Just back from a break at this hotel.We were late checking in after a long drive up from Westport.Tony at reception checked us in and he is definetly an asset to this hotel.He is so friendly,helpful,efficent and has a great manor about him.We just made it in time to have food in the bar and what tasty food it was-compliments to the chef.Our room was so clean and we had a accessible bathroom with a great shower.The lighting in the room was not great but we were not in the room much so it did not effect us. The decor was so luxurious and tastefully done with a deep purple.The leisure centre has such a large pool and it is great for families especially on a wet day.Breakfast was a buffet and it tasted great. You would definetly need a car staying at this hotel but that was fine for us.Their is a supervalu around the corner from the hotel if you forget your toothbrush which is handy.We really enjoyed our time at this hotel.

Sorcha170,
Thank you for the lovely comments- We like to think of the hotel as a hidden gem. We are so easily accessible by motor way.
I'm delighted that you had an opportuinity to use the hotel facilities and I have passed your compliments onto the chef- I think he was getting a little jealous that Tony was getting all the glowing reviews.
We are ideal for that relaxing break away. Make sure you keep an eye on our web site for special offers.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel soon.

Kind Regards

After a two hour drive, was so nice to recieve such a nice warm welcome from Tony who greeted us at reception. Tony is an excellent addition to the team, and and deserves to be complimented on his attention to detail, He is a hard worker and always has a smile for everyone. He is definately management material!!.

The hotel, The entrance was warm, inviting, spacious and exceptionally clean. the bedroom was fresh, and quiet and the beds very large and comfortable. The food in the bar was delicious, tastefuly presentented, large portions and reasonably priced. The bar staff were excellent, they had the bar area so clean, very prompt with taking orders and serving food. At breakfast there was a large buffet which contained, fruit,yogurts,cheeses, croissants and a wide selection of Irish breakfasts available.

Excellent location, large supervalu and roma take away only a couple of metres from the hotel. Great for a mid night snack !! Two great shopping centres in the area. golden island shopping centre and Athlone town centre. All day parking €3 in the underground in golden island and both shopping centres can be accessed within walking distance. We ate in the hotel one night and the olive grove the second night. Both were beautiful, but the Athlone springs hotel bar food was agreed by all our party as best.

Look no further, ths is the best hotel, for young couples, extendend families and families with young children alike.

Room Tip: All rooms are equally of excellent standard. Some The 100's have disability showers, and some 20...

Clara 2020,
Thank you so much for your lovely comments- I'm having to pull Tony back down to earth after that glowing review.
All jokes aside, that you for the comments- it means a lot to the team when their hard work is noticed and appreciated. We do pride ourselves on having a team that place customer care in the highest regard and I think that shows in how they carry out their day to day duties
We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future- let us know when your on your way and we'll roll Tony out for the welcoming committee.

Stayed 2 nights in this hotel found the staff very friendly and helpful. Dinnner was very good although restaurant was very cold on Friday night. leisure centre and swimming pool great. Rooms very spacious loved the walk-in shower. My only 2 suggestions would be to ask the chef not to use so much salt in the food and put more lighting in rooms or change dark shades on lamps as rooms are very dark.

Ger D Thank you for the comments.
I'll have a word with the chef regarding the salt content of the dishes. It's not a complaint I have had before but it may be something we can develop as a menu option- your giving me some inspiration for menu development.
We do have a problem with the lighting levels in the rooms and it is something we are looking for a solution to. I may try your idea of changing the shades and see does it make a difference.
Overall I'm delighted to hear that your stay was enjoyable and we look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel again in the near future.


Ps. I'm taking credit for your ideas !!

Myself and my wife stayed here for the first time on Sat 22 Oct `11 for one night. We usually stay at Seafield Hotel for our getaway breaks but decided that we would try somewhere new. Under 2hours from Dublin we choose this venue through a recommendation from friends and it did not let us down. Wonderful friendly staff from Nora on the front desk to Paddy the barman and all other staff we encountered. Great food on the set menu in Cedar Rest and at 22euro for a 3 course its unbelievable value. Lovely atmosphere in both rest and bar. Our room was spacious and maintained to a very high standard. The comp bottle of wine was a nice touch due to an unforseen error with the checking in system.The room was spotlessly clean. We will most definitely be back.

Two children, hubby and I stayed here on a hotel deal. We were greeted by a very smiley and friendly gentleman on reception who checked us in and directed us to our room. The room was spotlessly clean and ample for our short stay. We then drove into Athlone to wander around. The town is lovely with lots of shops and eateries to suit everybody. We made our way back to the hotel and made use of the hotels pool. The kids loved it and again the staff were friendly and helpful. We had a delicious meal in the hotel restaurant. I am vegetarian and didn't like the option on the menu. It was no problem to cater for me, the manageress suggested a couple of dishes, which all sounded delicious. Overall, we had a wonderful time and we would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

I stayed here whilst on business and the hotel is great value and lovely staff, from the guy that checked me in on reception to all bar staff etc it was first class. Fresh fruit and complimentary water in rooms and a good breakfast. Just one improvement would be to add a little more lighting in the rooms as it was difficult for make up application, but other than that fantastic- thank you.
