Spent one night here and wished we were staying longer! We arrived an hour later than we meant to but were given a very warm welcome just the same and immediately felt enveloped in the relaxed atmosphere. We were shown to our room – we had been upgraded to a lovely, spacious room with a large bathroom and a sitting area with additional seating on the decking outside which would have fabulous in warmer weather as the lake view was wonderful. We headed for the restaurant for a superb meal and the next morning had a lovely breakfast with plenty of fresh fruit and delicious bread. The staff were all really friendly and just the right level of attentive and the hotel itself is modern without being overly trendy and very comfortable. Any gripes? Well, maybe some cushions in the rooms to soften up the sofa, perhaps some instant coffee and decaff for an early morning or late night cuppa, not just ‘real’ coffee and the bedside lights were a little tricky to switch on and off, but those are very minor things. I would thoroughly recommend Wineport Lodge and would love to go back for a longer stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- You'll feel the difference the moment you arrive. More than a hotel, this is a luxury lodge with a unique sense of warmth and comfort at every turn. Nestled on the banks of Lough Ree, in an idyllic setting surrounded by native woodland, Wineport Lodge is exceptional in both style and service. With hosts who instinctively ensure your every need is met, here luxury and comfort comes wrapped in easy humour and effortless hospitality. Blissfully located in the beautiful countryside of Athlone, Wineport Lodge enjoys an incomparable setting on the edge of Ireland's peaceful inland waterways. Its cedar clad, log-cabin-style exterior is matched with a tasteful, modern interior that reflects the warm and relaxed atmosphere across the lodge and its lakeside grounds. Famously delicious food is matched by genuinely friendly and expert service. An always interesting Menu changes seasonally with the most flavoursome local produce regularly appearing as a daily special. Rustic in style, unpretentious and always generous on the plate... At Wineport Lodge you're in for a dining treat. Each menu is accompanied by an electric, carefully selected wine list. Glasson Golf Club is just a short boat trip away, and a stroll around the lake begins outside our front door. Wineport Lodge was designed to be in tune with our stunning natural surroundings. It's all about having the maximum comfort with the minimum environmental impact. That's why you won't find a sprawling spa with pool here. What you will find though is nothing short of perfect. Two intimate treatment suites are just waiting for you with a range of VOYA treatments and therapies guaranteed to help you relax, rejuvenate and renew.
