“Excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

An excellent location at the river in Athlone with access to the town and walks along the river, over to the castle and to the shopping centre in the historic quarter. Food is reasonable in the restaurant, fairly standard, but a few nice restaurants nearby. Be sure to visit the castle. Rooms spacious and clean. Well kept and staff generally helpful and pleasant.

Hi Mccloughlin,
Thank you for taking the time to post your review of our hotel. I am delighted you found your stay to be a pleasant one and that our rooms were to your liking.
I am disappointed to hear you found the food in our Element’s Bistro not up to standard. Perhaps upon your return you may have a different experience. Athlone proudly boasts many top class restaurants and we are very proud of Athlone Castle on the banks of the Shannon, directly across from our hotel – it is a fantastic visitor attraction.
We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Kind Regards,
Sinead Marron
General Manager

No wonder this hotel gets so many great reviews as it well deserves them, great location, super staff, spotlessly clean room and bathroom.

Car parking can be a problem when the hotel is busy, would definitely recommend here to anyone looking for accommodation in Athlone.

My husband I I stayed at the Raddison Blu in Athlone this week, the Staff at this Hotel are second to none, in particular the reception and restaurant staff. Avril in the restaurant deserves particular mention with her wonderful greeting and warm smile - what a positive start to any day. Well done to all at the Raddison Blu Athlone and we look forward to visiting you in the future.

The Radisson Blu is located adjacent to the River Shannon. It's probably more a three star than a four star hotel. Bedrooms are adaquate, it's reasonably priced and it's fine for a short stay. I would stay here again.

Hi GerfromIreland,
Thank you for taking the time to post your review of our hotel on Trip Advisor. With regards to the feedback you provided on your room we are currently in the middle of our ongoing refurbishment plan which is constantly updating our rooms in series of different blocks at a time. However this is mainly done in our off-peak season as all our rooms are needed during our busy summer period.
We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

We stayed July-2014.
We stayed on our way from the west towards Dublin. It was an excellent experience.
Rooms - spacious, spotless, well maintained, everything you need including WiFi.
Beds were good and room was quiet for a good night sleep.
Staff was friendly.
Breakfast was delicious.
Free parking.
Location - within city center, nearby you can find restaurants and pubs or just stroll.
Tip: Ask for a room facing the river for a nice view.
Summing up: We were sorry we had to leave...
