“for golf only”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2011

This hotel is for golfing only.
The rooms are just ok.
The bar staff and managment seemed indifferent & service poor
wont be returning.

We stayed one night here in August. I didn't expect to be so impressed by it. Our room was on the 3rd floor, had a little balcony and an amazing view. Bathroom had separate shower and bath and was very spacious. The bed was the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The mattress was just perfect. Would have loved to ask them what type they were but was afraid staff would think I was mad! dinner was amazing. Breakfast was buffet, very nice with gorgeous brown bread. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. Can't think if any negatives. There was a golf group in the bar area which might annoy some people but the area is spacious enough not to affect you.

We had a beautifully appointed twin room overlooking the Shannon. The beds were absolutely 5 star and one of the most comfortable I've ever stayed in. The staff at reception were extremely welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. I mentioned at check out that I had regrettably missed breakfast and the lady offered to have a sandwich made up for me for my journey - very impressive. I would highly recommend a stay at this hotel - so peaceful and relaxing.

This hotel is unique...located on the inner lakes of Lough Ree and as you drive into it, the setting is breathtaking!!!

Having worked in the hotel industry in Ireland and abroad, we were quite fussy when it came to choosing our wedding venue. We are delighted we chose this premier venue. We would pick up on small details and this hotel covers it all. The attention to detail from the time of booking to our wedding day was excellent. Nothing was any trouble and the wedding team provided great suggestions in the planning of the big day. Our Guests were overwhelmed by the friendly and welcoming atmosphere, some who work in the hotel industry were also very impressed.

The food was amazing and each of our guests could not stop commenting on how delicious it was. All staff were professional and provided a high quality of service from the time of check in, to the bar, banqueting suite and bedrooms. In our opinion each department provided a five star service. There is no other banqueting suite that we have seen that is designed in order to display a spectacular view while you dine!

The bedrooms are so spacious, airy and again with beautiful views. Stepping out on to the balcony at the end of our wedding night we would see the lights of Athlone glistening in the distance and we felt we are in a different country.

We cannot express our huge gratitude to all the Staff who truly made our day so magical and memorable. We would without doubt recommend Glasson Country House Hotel to anyone and especially any wedding couples who are looking for that "extra special" day!

lovely bedrooms, beautiful setting in a golf course on Lough Ree. Nice staff. Resaonable breakfast buffet. Evening menu in the bar is poor. Stay but don't eat dinner.

Just returned from a two night stay and am very disappointed with this hotel for a four star hotel that states that it has a fine dining restaurant they served dinner in the bar each night and the standard of the food was poor the service was very slow and the staff serving on the second night very rude. The " dining room" which was only used for breakfast was far from a fine dining room they did'nt even have a table cloth on the table and some of the chairs were stained. The hallway that leads into the dining room had a "musty smell". The room was clean and good size with with a nice view of the lake and golf course. I will not be returning to this hotel and could not recommend it to anyone

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your comments. We are delighted you liked your room and our beautiful setting. We are dissappointed you did not enjoy the rest of your experience. Our ethos at Glasson is very much "customer centered", we really try to care of and look after our guests. We usually give people the choice to have dinner in either our bar or restaurant. Some poeple love to stay in the bar becuase of the panaromic views. It is so disappointing when customers are not happy.

Your comments have been passed to the entire team. If you wish to talk to me personally about your experience please email me on ----------.

Kindest Regards,
Louise
