“Pure luxury”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2013

We stayed here for a wedding in early January. The room was spacious and luxurious, decor modern, enormous bathroom and a walk in closet. The food and service were excellent, both the wedding meal and breakfast the following morning were superb.

We hope to return again so we can truly enjoy the room and hotel. One minor gripe: the motion sensor light for the walk in closet - very annoying when going to the bathroom in the middle of the night!

Just back from 2 days in wineport lodge courtesy of a blue book voucher.
We highly recommend it as a venue
It's quiet getaway with gorgeous view of lough ree. We had a lovely room and food and service was excellent.
There are lovely fires lighting throughout the reception and bar/lounge which was really nice.
Cocktails in bar are really good too!!!

If you are looking for somewhere to escape to only a few hours from Dublin that will make you feel like you are in paradise then this is the place. Somehow the design of the rooms makes you feel as if you are looking out onto tropical water even on a cold miserable winters day. The quality and comfort of the room and the room service is all you need to know about if you are looking for a romantic break and it's first class

Being that I visited in late December it could only make me with to come back in the summer. This is a well placed lodge on a lake setting. the scenery is incredible. Everyone from the front desk, bartenders, and wait staff went above and beyond to make sure our stay went right. The food for all meals was delicious. This place does make a perfect quiet getaway.

Room Tip: I believe all face the lake so no help needed

Beautiful hotel right on the waters edge. Suite was amazing with a lovely balcony and spacious bathroom. The staff were kind and friendly and happy to help with any query. Spa and hot tub were amazing!

The facilities themselves are of high quality and the initial "meet and greet" was most welcoming. The bar staff were friendly and efficient. However, the quality of food and particularly the service in the restaurant was disappointing. There was no obvious restaurant manager or quality structured customer service. We feel that if a high quality product is offered it should be delivered on.

Room Tip: All rooms face the lake which is fantastic

Dear TeddybearMayo,

Many thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts on trip advisor. While I am delighted to hear you found your initial greeting and dealings with our bar staff friendly, I am very disappointed to hear you felt the service you received & meal in the restaurant were below standard.

We genuinely try to offer excellent standards of food & service at all times & should you wish to return I would be delighted to have the opportunity to make amends.

Best Regards,

Norma Wilson

I recently stayed 2 nights at Wineport Lodge. The setting is beautiful overlooking Lough Ree right n the waters edge.
I had been given a complimentary upgrade to a beautiful spacious suite with a wrap around balcony and beautiful views. The room had every amenity and a spacious bathroom added to the luxurious feel.
The staff and service were exemplary. The public areas/food/spa and roof top hot tub were also faultless.
I look forward to returning.

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.
