“Great Apartments and Hen Night”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

We went to Arch House in Athlone 15th and 16th Nov for a hen party weekend. The apartments were great, clean and modern and good security. The organisation of the hen weekend and activities was so easy thanks to Maureen and Chris. They arranged our meal, our accommodation, we had a cocktail making class and also VIP entry to a nightclub. The price was really reasonable and the weekend was great, everyone enjoyed it. The apartments and the B&B are so central that you can walk or take a 5min taxi to anywhere you could want to go for drinks or food. Having the apartments was great for space as there were 11 of us and Maureen even made up a little surprise for our hen!

Room Tip: In the apartments, there are double beds as opposed to twin beds.

18 of us stayed here over the October bank holiday weekend and from the minute i got a response back from Maureen i knew we had picked the perfect place for a Hen party. The hassle and stress was taken out of organising our Athlone trip as Maureen had it all covered even down to sending a bedroom rooming list so there was no fights when we got there. The apsrtments are AMAZING! everything a group of ladies could ask for, they where immaculate, warms, great decor and the beds where the most comfortable beds you could want - everyone enjoyed a good nights sleep. You are right in the heart of Athlone and everything is only 10 minutes away, you dont even hear the noise outside as the windows are well protected.
I would recommend these apartments (they are a few minutes from the B&B itself) as the package we got was perfect, an appetizing BBQ in Sean's bar that evening, a river run the following day which i can guarantee any hen party, you will have a ball , an hour and a half of laughs, tears and mayhem! we then had an area reserved in the prince bar followed by the nightclub. A BIG THANKS to Maureen who was attending a wedding but still managed to arrange a change of venue last minute... one word "Dedication". I write this review with pure sincerity as when you look online your expectations can sometimes drop a little and you can left with an establishment that didnt meet your stanards. With the Archhouse apartments this was a complete 180, as they where more than expected, the kitchen in the larger apartments is exceptional with little extras of washing liquid etc, even when we though we needed ice for our drinks, low and behold there was a bag in the freezer. in 27 years i have truly experienced first hand of someone going the extra mile and for this i can only say Thank you Maureen, you are a credit and an assest to your team. Thank you once again and we surely will be back

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet even though some face the road side.

Stayed at the Arch House after a night flight into Dublin and a drive to Athlone, so a good bed was definitely needed. A very good bed was found at the Arch House. The room was upstairs, facing the back roof and yard. Nicely decorated, clean and bright, the room was welcoming. The next morning's breakfast offered variety running from fruit, cereal, yoghurt to a full Irish breakfast. The Arch House was nicely centred in Athlone. The value for the money was excellent and I would recommend the Arch House.

Comfortable room, was a bit noisy as we where on the street side. Room was clean enough and breakfast was tasty but everything felt a little bit sticky. We had a triple room which was small but adequate for the purposes of our stay. This is a clean B&B though and good for a one to two night stay. Good location though and pleasant staff.

Easy walk into town ....

Nice clean room - didn't have a desk (I am working !), but manager obligingly gave me an extra chair and high stool .... so I could use laptop !

I was leaving early - so no time to experience breakfast ...... but a quick bowl of porridge and fruit was great !!
