“Short break”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

The staff were very friendly and efficent. The bedroom was clean and well furnished and comfortably warm. The food was excellent comming on pre-heated plates. There was a good choice of staters and the seafood cheweder was lovely. The only draw back is that the hotel is some way out of the town.

The staff in the hotel were excellent, they could not do enough to help with anything. The room was lovely, the bed was really comfortable. The only problem, as with most hotels these days was the lighting, especially in the bathroom was very poor, both for my husband to shave and for me to do my make up. I would most certainly recommend the hotel to others to stay in.

Meant to write this review before now. Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights at new years. Room was lovely had great space as we had our two boys with us. found all the Staff very friendly, the receptionist ( Tara i think) very friendly and helpful. The spa was great. got to use it while our boys were at the kids club, which they loved, the Girl in the club was very pleasant and our boys loved her.(Ciara i think). Food was great also and waiters very pleasent.
The only problems I had was that I found the pool cold especially at this time of year. also there was a smell of stale water or something in the public toilets.
Plan to return soon.

While the hotel is on the outskirts of Athlone and near an industrial estate, there is a bus stop nearby and taxis are on call. The hotel is lovely, the food was great and the bed was fantastic. We had room 239 and while it is away from the noise it was lovely and quiet and even though an event was taking place we heard nothing of it. The room was a good size and the bathroom with separate shower was fantastic. It was clean and comfortable with staff who were very helpful from the minute you arrived until you left, they were great. The manager is a lovely man who could not have done more for us. Overall I really enjoyed my stay. Recommended!

Room Tip: Second floor is a lot quieter

stayed in the hotel for one night, and being from Athlone myself I was after a relaxing weekend, and to feel like I have been away!! I booked in for treatments in the spa and I must say it was an absolutely amazing experience!!! The girl (Maria) couldnt of done enough for me!! i would highly recommend her for treatments esp the facial, i was so relaxed I fell asleep!! the presentatiion in the rooms of the spa were fab, candles lit, fab music and they put a rose outside your door to show that you are in the middle of a treatment!! The food was amazing couldnt fault it, waitresses were lovely really couldt do enough for you!!! live music in the bar was fantastic aswell. It was nice to see the manager of the hotel interacting with guests and making sure everyone was ok and comfortable, you dont see that alot!!! The rooms are very comfortable and very clean! will be recommending to my friends, and will be going back for another fabulous facial!!! :)

The biggest plus point for the hotel is it's staff who were friendly and helpful from the minute we walked in the door. The biggest minus is it's location in an industrial estate off the motorway on the outskirts of Athlone - you definitely need a car if you're staying here! The room was large and well presented, the bed was very comfortable. The heating was turned up quite high and resulted in a stuffy room despite the fact that I turned the rad off when we got the room. The bathroom was very plush and looked really good but the open shower cubicle splashed water all over the floor and the towel rail came apart in my hands!

The breakfast was a major disappointment, limited choice for a continental option - juice, coffee, cereal and toast basically which is a bit minimal for €9.95 pp. If you go for a hot breakfast that was better in terms of choice @ €12.95pp

We got a deal so the stay was fantastic value but unless you want a motorway stopover for a night I couldn't recommend it if you were paying full price it's just too far out of town.

We bought a break via treatticket for this hotel and overall we enjoyed our stay. The girl who checked us in on the afternoon of 6th Jan was excellent - perfect person to have on reception as she created a fantastic first impression. We checked in with no issues, however when we went up to our room the keycards didnt work - it turned out there was an issue with the lock so we were moved to the room next door. Decor was gorgeous - very modern with superkingsize bed. Bathroom was really gorgous with massive walk in shower. However the shower pressure was so strong the floor was soaked in the bathroom so we had to be moved to another room. It was one of the family rooms - not as nice as the room we had been moved from but grand (apart from fact wifi was intermittent as we were furthest away from reception area). This was disappointing as I had to come down to reception area to check work emails/ messages.

We used the leisure facilities. The pool was a bit cold but the girl on reception had pre-warned us that they had a problem with boiler over xmas and pool was still getting up to temperature. Staff in leisure end were great too.

Breakfast was really good quality - plenty of choice.

We had a lovely wee break away despite the hiccups

Room Tip: we were in rm 209 & 213 - they had the big walk in showers and superkingsize beds. Rm 125 was...
