Attended a wedding in this hotel back in October. We ended up staying for the weekend and i must say i was delighted that we did.
It was a little confusing to find hotel car park but once we did the car was parked up for the weekend. Checking in to hotel was a breeze and we checked into a room on the 3rd floor, the room had everything that you would expect in a modern hotel. Great to have the seperate bath and shower which isnt very commen place in Irish hotels.
The first night we stayed we were attending a wedding. I must say we had a fantastic experience. As me and my partner are newly weds we are fairly in tune with what is going on. The main banquet room is beautiful with really impressive lighting and it created a really warm atmopshere. The meal was tasty and the roast beef was the best i have had at a wedding, ever!. Service was effficent and staff were very friendly and attentitive.
The next morning we went down for breakfast a little less worse for wear. We were met by a vey friendly man who showed us to our seats. The breakfast had a good selection and the food was hot from the buffet.
That night we met up with wedding party and stayed in the hotel for the evening. The music in the bar was great. There was a one man band who was great craic and we ate their also and found the food again to be of good quality and resonably priced.
We really had a great weekend and i think this hotel is a fabolous location for a wedding. I know from speaking to my mates that they thought the same. Also i have to mention how friendly the staff were and they all seemed to enjoy their jobs.
We are planning to go back in the new year as we didnt really get to avail of the shopping centre which is in the same development and to visit the spa in the hotel. Athlone seems to be a busy town with plenty to do in it and around the area. This hotel seems to be very busy and i can see why!
The added bonus is its location as we only had to drive 1hr up the road and we were back in Lucan. Well done to the Sheraton Athlone and keep doing what you are doing.
