I switched from my usual hotel (it’s gone out of business) to this place, and it has worked out very well for me. It's centrally located within Shannon Town, close to the business centre and industrial estates and only 5 mins drive to the airport, yet there is surprisingly little noise. My laptop (my constant companionJ) worked fine in my room and there was wifi access throughout the hotel. My room was spacious and clean, with all the mod-cons and the halls are full of interesting aircraft memorabilia. There's a quiet business lounge and good workout facilities. You have to phone in advance to get the sauna / steam room operational which I thought a bit annoying at first but reception advised me that it was hotel policy to be as energy efficient as possible when I queried it. Can't argue with that I suppose! Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice including the healthy option. The bar was comfortable and used by locals, which is always a sign of a good pint. The pub grub was very good and the staff were helpful and efficient. Reception was a delight, very quick and hassle free. I will certainly use this hotel as my base for my frequent business trips to the mid-west of Ireland.
