Stayed at the Sheraton Hotel in Athlone last weekend. Was extremely impressed with everything about this hotel. Ideal location if one wants to stay in the centre of town. Food in hotel excellent and all staff were so nice and hospitable.

Dear Guest,
My sincere thanks for your positive review of the hotel and I am delighted to read that you found our leisure centre so enjoyable.
My apologies about the lack of a view from your room, the majority of our rooms have great views over the local countryside (Comprising 4 counties and 2 provinces!) and the Shannon as it flows by. I would be delighted to ensure that you are allocated a room in our Tower to thank you for your custom should you choose to return, so please don’t hesitate to contact me.
The pool hall is designed spanning two floors and benefits from a 15 metre high ceiling with mezzanine walkway. It is complimented by the spa treatment rooms clad in bronzed paint which project into the void. We receive regular positive feedback from guests who have enjoyed this space while using the pool, water features and deck level bubble pool.
Once again many thanks for your kind words about our staff and facilities. I look forwarded to sharing your review with the team here in the hotel.
Yours Sincerely,
Johnny O’Sullivan,
General Manager

I stayed here for a weekend with a group of my girlfriends. We had spa treatments in the morning which were very good & relaxed in the thermal suite afterwards, where they had a platter of fruit waiting for us & chilled water. The rooms are very nice; clean, modern and decorated tastefully. I especially loved the bathroom because it had a seperate shower and bath & lots of marble, very luxurious! We also had 1 evening meal in the main restaurant which was delicious! I will definately return to this hotel again! A++++

Dear Guest,
Many thanks for your wonderful review, and to your group of friends for choosing to spend your leisure time with us at The Sheraton Athlone Hotel.
Sirana Spa is building a regular repeat clientele, for which we have a great team of Spa Therapists to thank along with the truly unique design of the Spa facilities. Designed in conjunction with the potter Stephen Pearce, it takes it’s inspiration from the Japanese tea rooms and features many unique facilities such as a heated Razul in the Serenity waiting area and wonderful feature showers in the changing room.
I look forward to sharing your feedback with the Spa, kitchen and La Provence Restaurant teams, and to welcoming you back when you return.
Yours Sincerely,
Johnny O’Sullivan,
General Manager

Room: Spacious room, huge bed, pillows very uncomfortable, bath and shower were very clean and the decor is very classy. Cleaners were friendly and requests for extra towels etc were met immediately.

Bar: Staff were very helpful and could not do enough for you. There was a wedding on the 2nd day so it was quiet busy and difficult to get a seat or served.

Restaurant: Staff were once again outstanding. Excellent service provided and extremely professional. We ate an evening meal and it was delicious. I am not keen on hotel food, however, this was a very high standard.

Reception: Not the friendliest of staff here, perhaps they could take some tips on board from the waiting staff. Seems to be a lack of communication between reception staff as we settled our bill on check in yet we were asked to pay again on check out!!!???. We were given incorrect direction to the viking boat and almost missed the trip.

(Viking boat trip takes 1.5 hours and not 40 mins as advised by reception, it leaves from the pier across from olive grove)

The hotel has direct access to the shopping centre from the lift behind reception which was a bonus.

All in all we had a very relaxing trip.

Dear Guest,
It was great to read such a comprehensive review of our property and I am glad to read that overall you had a delightful time with us. There are one or two areas which you have highlighted to us where there is room for improvement. I can reassure you that a full review of your points in relation to our pillows and a lack of clear communication at our front desk will be carried out. We will then programme appropriate training/procurement to ensure an improvement in our standards.
If you would like to contact me in the hotel to discuss your feedback further I would be delighted with the opportunity.
We have made some adjustments to the space in the lobby and bar to increase our seating capacity, and I do apologise that it was difficult to find seating at the time.
It is great for our Associates and Management to have their efforts acknowledged by our guests and I will pass on your kind words to our Accommodation, Bar, Restaurant and Kitchen Teams.
My thanks again for taking the time to review our hotel and I look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel should you choose to return.
Yours Sincerely,
Johnny O’Sullivan,
General Manager.

The Sheraton athlone is a grand new modern hotel that just lacks that extra sparkle that a new modern hotel should have . It's a four star but it's an Irish four star which to anyone who has stayed anywhere else in the world means a 3 star. Good points are location, staff, breakfast. Bad points are split level hotel and like alot of Irish hotels they run a money making scheme where don't say in website that u need a swimming cap for the pool but expect u yo buy one of them if u dont bring ur own

Last weekend myself & around 25 ladies headed to the Sheraton for Hen party! From the very moment we entered the hotel,the staff - including the general Manager Johnny himself, were there to greet us, have the craic & make us feel really welcome! The rooms are lovely, warm, spacious but yet cosy. We were heading up on the lift, and a staff member overheard up saying that we had seen guest with apple martini's and we should get one - he stopped the lift, told us to hold the door for mo, and popped back in with two for us!! Such a unexpected and nice thing to do! On to dinner, seriously good food, got the pasta, very tasty, girls got steak, and exclaimed it was one of the best they ever had! We were on a package that included our accommodation, but not all of us ordered desert, so when my expresso came, i took out my wallet to pay the waitress, and she told me she would just put that down as my desert as i didnt have one! The pool is gorgeous & and heard great reports from the spa! We all headed back there after a nite out, had a great sing song in resident bar with no complaints! Overall, stayed in a lot of hotels in Ireland, and is def in top three for me! Lovely staff & Lovely place!

Stayed at the sheraton recently for the second time and am delighted to say that it was as good as my first visit a year ago. As someone who travels a bit for work i have to say that i loved staying at this hotel, the team working there are experienced and so friendly, Mark in the restaurant looks after the guests confidently and seems to be such a good guy!
The location is a massive plus as it is close to everywhere with the new motorway, and as the hotel shares the site with a shopping centre it really has all you need to ensure both work and leisure time are well catered for.
This hotel is a must for those staying in Athlone!
