Stayed in the athlone springs on saturday night with a friend. We got an excellent deal with a voucher for B+B and evening meal. The hotel is situated on the tuam road out of athlone. The hotel is overlooking a car dealership and a housing estate so not exactly picturessque. The hotel is about 5 minutes drive from the town centre for shopping etc. There is plenty of free parking at the hotel.
We had facials in the spa. The staff there were excelent- friendly and pleasent and the whole experience was very relaxing. I could not fault it.
We had lunch in the bar and three course dinner with wine in the restuarant that night (part of our deal). On both occasions the quality of the food and the options available were excellent. There were some issued with service however- we were waiting half an hour for soup and bread at lunch time and at dinner we were not informed of the need to order side orders seperately- we could not get the attention of any waiting staff to recifiy it for quiet some time (the restualrant was very busy) and when our side (chips) eventually arrived we had finshed our main.
The rooms are clean bright and spacious. The bathrooms are clean and the shower was Huge!
Breakfast was served from 7;30 to 10;30 and was a buffet of hot and cold foods. Good selection and again quality was good.
We went for a swim in the leisure centre- swimming pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi, My only complaint is that the pool was cold. The facilitites are good and the pool bigger than i would expect in a hotel.
Overall our experience was good. Some minor issues with service at meal times but overall I enjoyed my stay and would visit again.
