“Brilliant hotel”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Stayed 2 nights in this hotel, really enjoyed it, very central location in the middle of town and yet very quiet at night. Was able to explore Athlone on foot. Car park very safe, Staff very helpful particularly Aishling in reception, she really knows her job. Made me feel like a family member. Food very good in the Prince Bar and the breakfast was lovely and plenty of it. Rooms very clean and spacious, housekeeping excellent. Great value for money. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

This was one of the best I had stayed in in Ireland. Rooms were large and the beds were great. Fantastic double shower and the spec was 1st class. Staff friendly and the food was great. There is a disco attached but it's in the basement and never heard a sound. Beautiful place for a base and Shannon cruise. Would defo return to this hotel.

Arrived at dublin airport, hopped on the direct bus(1hr 20 mins) to athlone. Hotel was great for a quick business trip. Breakfast was great. I can imagine that nightclub nights must be pretty grim if you like sleeping.

We only had an overnight stay at the Prince of Wales, more's the pity, because the hotel was very clean and comfortable and the bar food was great and breakfast excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel has a good central location in town so we were able to leave the car in the free car park and explore Athlone on foot. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Stayed here last year and was hoping on my return trip last weekend it would be as good. I'm glad to say it was! Really well run hotel, very considerate and friendly staff. Its location right in the center of Athlone is perfect. The bar food is still superb, I had the rib eye steak after a long cycle from Dublin and it sorted me right out. Cant say enough good things about this place. Would definitely stay here again.
