My husband and I and two friends had booked 2 nights B&B plus one evening meal, through a website. We actually got a deal which was half the correct price, but the hotel honoured this booking at the website price. Not only this but they upgraded both our rooms!
Our rooms were spotless, huge with the biggest bed I have ever seen, and so comfortable. The bathroom had a multijet power shower, double pedestal basins and deep bath. All just perfect.
The hotel staff were so friendly, cheery and helpful, making the atmosphere very accommodating.
The food in the bar/restaurant was faultless. It is noted in the room that the bar becomes very busy at lunchtimes, no wonder - it seemed like all the locals came there for lunch - for either a bar meal, or full cooked meal. This is a true sign that the food is good enough to bring in the locals every day. We were happy to wait until about 2pm - just having a drink - until the bar area cleared.
We had stayed in the Prince of Wales many years ago before it was demolished and rebuilt - it was awful then - now it is great! Athlone is a lovely friendly town - with the old and the new side by side, including a totally new shopping centre with up-market shops.
Will definitely be back to both the hotel and Athlone.
