The Prince of Wales Hotel
Ranked #4 of 9 Hotels in Athlone
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 April 2014

With the exception of the first woman at reception, we had a nice stay here. She seemed befuddled about finding a copy of a map of the city, and making recommendations for dining, outside the hotel. Our room was clean and modern.
Athlone is a perfect location for taking a day trip to the monastic site of Clonmacnoise.

Stayed in this hotel for one night with friends, the location was great and the hotel was lovely but what made the stay were the staff. Especially ashling on reception. She went out of her way to make our stay fantastic and ensured that we had everything we needed. I can't find anything wrong with this hotel and will look forward to staying again.

I have been a few times for lunch and while the food is nice, I feel they scrimp on it somewhat, I have left still hungry more than once. even a sandwich is quite short on ingredients, I would recommend it for a night out though.

We stayed in the prince of wales athlone - saturday last 22nd march 2014 for my hen party. Everything from booking the hen to the night itself was effortless- Michelle in reservations took care of everything ensuring we had the best night ever!! She organised the boat trip with River Run on the shannon ( absolutely brilliant craic- a must do) dinner in the hotel and loads of other bits and pieces. From the minute we arrived until the minute we left Ashling looked after everything- she honestly could not have done anymore for us ( she even obliged when asked to take some group shots of us ) I would definetley recommend the prince of wales - it has everything you need under the one roof and is also in the centre of the town .. we cannot wait to return.

The Prince of Wales is a very pleasant hotel with modern and spacious bedrooms. Very comfortable room. We had booked a dinner/B&B package and just to say that the dinner was very good. Also the breakfast was in its "full Irish" version very tasty. There was limited selection as for "continental style" breakfast if that is your thing. There were certainly no cold meats or cheeses on offer the morning we had breakfast. The hotel function rooms are very well equipped as we recall from a previous stay. Once query I would have though - I was wondering what the hotel tries to achieve in the spacious bar area/restaurant.It's not really classy and after 10 o'clock the disco lights came on, but no music. Well not until 11.00 pm after which time we left.
All in all - it can surely be recommended in particular because of its central location - everything in walking distance (which beats driving in Athlone anytime)!
