I have stayed here twice with my girlfriend, once in December 2013 and again in July 2014 and I can say this hotel was lovely both times
The room was very well maintained and clean. The bed was very big and comfortable and the bathroom was perfect with a great shower. The only fault we really had with the room was that the temperature control both times we stayed was completely useless, the most recent time we stayed it was very warm out and the heat in the room was almost unbearable. We even had to go as far as to buy a small fan from a nearby Euro Giant.
The location is perfect, it is right in the center of Athlone town about 3 minutes from the pubs and restaurants and 5 minutes from the main shopping area. It is also 2 minutes from the Bus/Train Station so if you don't have a car you are in luck.
The restaurant and bar are both lovely, the breakfast is great and the food in the bar was pretty good too. I didn't use the gym but the pool was nice, it is only 1.2m deep and is unattended so you will find children diving into the pool but if it is quiet it will be perfect for a swim, there are also Steam and Sauna rooms.
Overall the Radisson Blu, Athlone was a great place to stay and I will defiantly be staying here again when I am in Athllone.
