    The shower was fantastic. Bed really cozy. The room adequately big enough, best of all, the room was quiet, the only nose that I heard was a guest the following morning in the hall right out side me room on his phone. Breakfast was supurb, good selection of hot food and the portion was huge!

    Room clean and practical, good shower. Breakfast in room very good, hot and on time. Did not use other facilities of hotel.

    Basin did not drain properly and was not fixed after it was reported. Loud techno music from bar area made it impossible to have quiet night cap in residents lounge.

    Location of hotel was excelent as also was the value for money.

    Room no. 219 was a bit small, was fine for one person and maybe the room I was put into was intended for single occupancy.

    That there was room service available & a good snack bar & restauarnt to choose from. The hotel was located right in the hub of the shops etc. The staff were very helpful and friendly, got everything we needed straight away with a smile except for one who in room service who did nto smile once). The iron and board and toiletries & Hairdryer save you a lot of trouble as you dont have to bring them itmes. Beds were enormous & comfy, lots of wardrobe space.

    Could use a fridge of some sort. Just a few areas like outside of the lifts need paint chips doing (gives a bad impression before you reach your lovely room). Room service not available at dinner time until 9pm, we were tired but had to go down to the bar as we were hungry about 6pm. We would have liked to have had some entertainment on during our stay maybe.dont want to be fussy but receptionists wearing a uniform would look more professional as when we first checked in I thought they were too casual, and thought maybe he hotel was..but was suprised as it was not.

    The location of this hotel is excellent, it is in the centre of Athlone town, so shops, restaurants and pubs are only a short stroll away. The hotel is opposite the fantastic Athlone Town Centre (shopping centre). Despite it's location in the middle of town, there is a welcome relaxed athmosphere is this hotel

    I am sorry to have to report that there was an unpleasant smell in the corridors of this hotel. Signage could be a little better, I kept getting lost when trying to reach Reception.

    The food was very good,although the breakfasts were not well served,many items were missing at the tables

    Not really. the final bill was rather confusing,another room number seemed to appear on it

    The hotel is very well situated for shopping, sightseeing and restaurants and bars.

    As I suffer with back trouble I would prefer a room with a walk in shower rather than a shower over the bath.

    I have ejoyed my stay at this fine hotel whith my sister for a few days break, it was a wonderful stay and good value for money. The staff were also nice and friendly, which I look forward to staying agsin sometime and I would recommend the hotel, thank Bernadette

    Have no complaints, apart from the print on the comments card in the room, was a little hard to read with slight visual problem..

  • Single

    It was clean, the design of the single room I was in is good, the shower was excellent. The safe worked. I had no problems. Neither did my brother who was also in a single room.The staff are grand.

    Our stay (my brother was also in a single room) was let down by the breakfast the quality of which was fine but which was badly timed. We got our tea, then eventually we got our breakfast, then eventually we got our toast. No breakfast is any good if the 3 essential ingredients do not arrive at the same time. This is an absolute. Hoteliers who don't get this right should be sent to the Infinite Kitchen where they should be made to hand cut chips and gut fish for ever.

  • Older travelers

    Room and staff were acceptable. The room was clean but the decor is a little tired. The view of the rubbish area was unpleasant and could be more organised. Bar staff were very pleasant and the food was excellent.

    First impressions of the outside were very negative. We wouldn't have stayed if we hadn't already booked. A power wash on the outside and renewal of the reception area would make the place a lot more appealing. The reception staff were very nice and the overall experience was fine.
