I recently stayed here with some friends, as there were 5 of us we booked 1 x twin and 1 x triple room. The regular triple rooms were not available at time of booking but reservations said they would put an extra bed into the room. I was a little dubious about this as we had a bad experience the previous year in Galway when 3 of us were squashed into a tiny room with a small camp bed masquerading as the "extra bed". However, the lady assured me the room was quite large and the bed would be the same size as a normal single bed in the hotel albeit a fold-out. On arrival I decided to ask again if there had been any cancellations of triple rooms, the lady at reception couldn't have been more helpful and although she couldn't accommodate us with the triple room, she went one better and put us all in two family rooms, both had two large double beds, a small living area and large bathroom. When I booked the offer available was for 2 nights B&B + 1 evening meal + €30 voucher per room for any spa treatment over €80. We had our evening meal on the first night and the food was extremely good, we each chose a different dish and no-one was disappointed when the food was presented. The location of the hotel is fantastic especially for a girly weekend, the shopping centre below was a treat. Athlone itself is a really lovely town and I highly recommend the boat trip on the Shannon but a little advice if you go in winter bring your winter woolleys!! If I had anything negative to say it would be that the power in the shower in our bathroom wasn't great and although the spa area was lovely, the facial I had certainly wasn't a good one. However, these are very small problems that can be rectified simply enough, all in all we had a great time both in the Sheraton and in Athlone...we will definitely be back.
