“Fantastic room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for one night and were delighted to get upgraded to the honeymoon suite 'the Captains suite'. It was a stunning room with fabulous views,a gas fire, a lovely sitting area,music system.... all spread out over 2 floors. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was very good also.

Stayed November 2013, travelled as a couple

Stayed here recently. Superb location - right on the lake. Rooms are superb. Welcome was top notch and service was great throughout. Dinner was average and not up to expectations. Everything was a little too well done and first bottle of wine was well off. However it was replaced without question. Breakfast on the other hand was fresh and piping hot. Would recommend for couples or small groups.

This location is full of character. I attended as a groomsman for a wedding. I could go on forever about this hotel but I'll simply say this - a stunning location, with fabulous views, friendly staff, beautiful bedrooms and excellent staff. Everything was made so simple and the food was delicious. I get excited even thinking about going back. A great setting for any event from a business meeting in the bar, a weekend away to a wedding.

Room Tip: Any room facing the lake.

We recently stayed at Wineport Lodge and immediately regretted having to leave. The warm welcome, the atmosphere, the 180 degree view over Lough Ree, the food, service etc etc are all you could wish for. We dined in the restaurant the first night 10/10. The second night we went for a bar snack which was also served in a beautiful section of the restaurant.
Homely, real fires were in abundance but if there was one tiny downside, we found it odd having to take luggage through the bar/lounge area. The receptionist immediately gave us an informal alternative route.
We will be back.

Room Tip: All rooms face the Lough so have a great view. If you can stretch to a junior suite do so. The setti...

Had a lovely stay in the Wineport lodge - the staff could not do enough for you. The room I was in was lovely with a fabulous view across the lake. Dinner in the Restaurant was delicious and great value. Spa treatments were great value and very relaxing. I especially liked that breakfast in your room was included. I'm already looking into my next visit.

We popped in here for some lunch in the bollinger bar in september. Service was very slow and, it felt like the place was deserted. Disappointing as I was really looking forward to being blown away after having heard all good things. Average seafood chowder. The cheeseplate was nice, as are the views onto the lake.

Dear kilkennykitten,

Many thanks for taking the time to post your review on trip adviser. I am very sorry to hear you found the service slow in our bar on the day you joined us for lunch. We genuinely try to provide excellent standards of service at all times but obviously failed you on this occasion. Should you wish to return please do not hesitate to contact me directly & I will endeavour to make you experience memorable for all of the right reasons.

Best regards,

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.
