Having had a bit of a negative experience on my last stay when a stag party kept me awake all night , the staff had promised to make it up to me on the next visit . This they certainly did! I was offered a reduced room rate and when I arrived I found I had been upgraded to a beautiful suite! I loved it so much that is wehre I will be staying on my next visit - lovley views of the river and fabulous accommodation - full makrs to the Radisson Blu , Athlone!

Dear Guest,

Firstly I would like to thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback from your recent visit to the Radisson BLU Hotel Athlone.

Secondly I would like to thank you for giving us the chance to prove to you that your experience on your first visit to the hotel was not a typical experience we provide to all of our guests. I’m sure you’ll see that your second trip is much more typical of what you can read from other visitors to the hotel here on Tripadvisor.

I’m glad that we are now your hotel of choice in Athlone, and I look forward to welcoming you back in the not so distant future.

Kind Regards

So this was my second time to stay here and yet again I could not sleep due to the noise! This time it was road works during the night....if you stay at this hotel, make sure you are on the river side, as it appears they are the quietest. It is a pity as the staff are very helpful and friendly, but if you can't sleep, what is the point of staying there...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your review here on Tripadvisor. I am disappointed to hear that you did not enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep. Unfortunately the road works going on outside of the hotel were completely out of our control, had you made us aware that they were disturbing you, we could have certainly done all in our power to eliminate the noise.

I will pass on your positive notes regarding the staff at our next staff meeting.

I do hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back to the Radisson BLU Hotel Athlone in the near future.

Kind Regards

nice hotel in centre of athlone. convenient to shopping. lovely views of river shannon. nice helpful staff.
ate in the restaurant and on the terrace and would recommend highly. the food is fantastic - couldn't fault.
paid for an upgrade to business class. not worth the extra money. no air conditioning so very uncomfortable at night. We asked for a fan which didn't make a huge difference to the "stuffiness" of the room. window didn't open very far. pay tv didn't work.
lovely hotel, enjoyed the food and the location but don't feel its worthy of it's four stars.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time out to provide us with your feedback from your recent stay. It is great to hear so many positive comments about your stay.

The heat in the rooms is something we are aware of, and once a guest notifies us that they are uncomfortable we organise a fan for them immediately.

I do hope you have the opportunity to visit Athlone in the near future, if you do please book through myself and I will ensure that there is no doubt at all in your mind as to our worthiness of our four stars.

I look forward to welcoming you to the Radisson BLU Hotel Athlone in the not so distant future.

Kind Regards

Just back from a two night stay in Radisson Blu, Athlone. Can't wait to go back!! Fab hotel, great staff, esp Nicola on reception. A great help. We hadnt got a room with a view, but the terrace out back overlooking the river shannon is to die for. There was a swing group on the sunday, and with the sun shining, the terrace was the place to be. We ate in the restaurant our first night, and found the food and service excellent. The bar food is also great and service second to none. The rooms are spotless and well maintained, the only gripe is rooms are too warm!! the windows don't open much and no air conditioning. Otherwise it's a well placed hotel, with great service and excellent food.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback from your recent stay.

It is great to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and also brilliant to receive such positive comments about staff, I’ll be sure to pass these on.

I would like to apologise for any discomfort you felt with the rooms being warm, this is the one negative side affect of having the sun shining outside that it does warm up the rooms a bit, for some people.

I do hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back to the Radisson BLU Hotel Athlone in the near future.

Kind Regards

Myself, hubby and 2 year old little girl stayed for 2 nights in the Radisson Athlone in April. We have a small speed boat that we were hoping to spend time on over this particular weekend. Outside the hotel there are berts that can be rented out over night. starting from €15.
We booked our room with the hotel directly, the lady in reservations was so nice and helpful. We wanted a room with a view of the river and spacious for a little toddler to run around,
We were recommended and booked into room 111 , this is an amazing room. With a big hall as you walk in ( loads of room for the big buggy), big room with a king bed, huge bathroom with 2 sinks, sep shower and bath.
The high point of the room was the floor to celing window that overlooked the river. The sun filled the room, we spent alot more time in the room as it was so spacious and bright.
We didnt try out the hotel restraunt for dinner as we have a favourite Italian in Athlone that we like to go to " Di Bella". We highly recommend it.
Breakfast each morning had so much choice and food was great. The leisure centre pool was lovely too.
The next time we come to Athlone we will be staying in room 111 in the RAS.
Regards,
A very happy Portlaoise family.
