We booked a dinner and breakfast package here and overall it was a good experience. The deal on the food was a great one but unfortunately it was amazingly loud overnight and we didn't have a good sleep. I think athlone might be a military town and that we some soldiers shipping out and they stayed here overnight for a big night out. Can't blame them but it was so loud we didn't get to sleep until around 3am.
Aside from that the room was large and the bathroom was nice. The free parking was a plus with us. However I booked a family room which I understood from the website to have a couch and a baloney. But I didn't recieve any even after asking the front desk. The room we did get was quite nice with many amenities.
The package we got included dinner and breakfast, both of which we really did enjoy. The dinner included a two course meal in bar. The steak would normally have been a supplement but the waiter didn't charge us. That was a great price. Dinner wouldn't have cost us 40 euro but for 99 euro we got dinner breakfast and the room! Great!
The breakfast was off menu and had a Buffett to choose from. Great presentation and great meal. Aside from the noise it was a good stay between the west coast and Dublin. The free wifi was great but could only be accessed near lobby on first floor.
