“Lovely Stay”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

Stayed in the Prince of Wales with friends for one night as we were in Athlone watching our Son play rugby for Scotland against Ireland u20s.
Lovely hotel, recently refurbished. Very clean with super friendly staff. Room was big and very clean with excellent facilities and powerful shower!
Would definitely visit again if in Ireland. Would recommend also.

Stayed here recently for two nights as part of a group of girls. The location of the hotel is great, minutes walk from the train station, seconds of a walk from the shopping mall.

From the minute we arrived we were greeted by friendly, helpful staff at reception. And it just got better as our stay continued. The rooms are very spacious, clean and easily accessible. The accommodation staff were friendly along corridors and we werent disturbed on either morning by knocking by staff looking to clean rooms.

Breakfast on our first morning was a real treat, there was a full menu of al a carte options to order from the kitchen, of which i ordered buttermilk pancakes served with fresh fruit, they were delicious. There was also a continental buffet. We were served copious amounts of tea/coffee and toast. However, due to a full house staying on the second night, the menu was greatly reduced and that would be my only disappointment of the whole weekend, but i totally understand its purpose.

The food in the bar is excellent. So much choice, and very reasonably priced. As there was such a large group of us, there were many different dishes ordered and every one of them were well presented and more importantly, very tasty. The bar staff were also very friendly and helpful and had that most valuable nack of remembering rounds of drinks, not having to be reminded on each order. The particular staff that were there during our stay were Adrian, TJ and Ian. Ian was also the guy who hosted our cocktail class - which we thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend to any group staying there. Great fun....

We dined in the restaurant on our second evening, and again although the choice was quite limited (as it was a package dinner), the quality of the food and service from staff was very good.

There was music in the bar both nights which really entertained both our group and everyone else in the venue, and we finished off our night, by being given complimentary access or Karma nightclub, which is adjoining the hotel.

Each and every one of our group had a marvelous stay and I, for one, will definitely be returning.

We attended Karma niteclub for a hen party on 25/1/14. Louise looked after us so well I could'nt praise her enough. We had a reserved area in the club with 2 bottles of bubbles to aid the party. Shamie took over then and was able to fufill our every desire. The music was really good with a good mix of dance and chart. Great nite all round!!

I organised a hen party for here last weekend! It was just perfect from the location, the staff, the food, the band playing in the bar that night to karma nightclub attached! The girls went over and beyond to make the night special! Everyone who came completely enjoyed their night and had nothing but good words to say about here! I would recommend and will be back. ;)

A lovely hotel, clean and convenient. Friendly staff and great food. As previous reviewers have mentioned, the shower was AMAZING!! Only downside - From 9.30am the housekeepers made such a racket in the hall that a lie in was impossible. Check out not till 12 but was up and gone by 10.30 because of this. Disappointing.
