This hotel is very professionally run. The facility as was the room that we stayed were very clean and well presented.
It's location is fine if you have a car as it is a bit of a walk into town centre.
Facilites are very good. Breakfast was included in the price we paid and was very good in terms of both variety and quality. Staff were very helpful.
I personally feel the price was a bit on the expensive side (and we didnt pay full price, but to be honest that was Ireland expensive everywhere).
We stayed here to use the facilities and thought the price reflected the facilities provided. (pool, gym spa bar facilitiess restaurant etc) if you just want a bed yuo can find cheaper elsewhere, if you want a little bit more with nice grounds and facilities and dont mind paying the extra then this is the place for you.

The Abbey (once you have found it through Roscommon's maze of roundabouts) is an attractive hotel built from the ruins of an Augustinian abbey, the remains of which stand in the grounds. The hotel offers a range of facilities and functions so don't be surprised if there is a boisterous hen or stag night on a Friday followed by an equally boisterous wedding reception on the Saturday. Singing and partying is part of the fun of staying in many Irish hotels. Staff are friendly and welcoming; the food is excellent, particularly the dinner menu which I can highly recommend but breakfast was somewhat disorganised. There is ample parking and a leisure centre attached to the hotel which is well used by locals. Rooms are decorated in period style. The public areas are attractive with open fireplaces and a welcoming feel to them. Only problem I had was internet connection which is advertised as free in room. I was not able to connect at all, either in my room or in the public areas. That was disappointing and caused me some problems as it was one of the reasons I had selected this hotel.

Had stayed at the Abbey for the previous 4 years and had always found it impossible to access my Hong Kong internet account via the extremely expensive PC in the "Business Centre" (a tiny room with one computer that costs around 8 Euros per hour to use). This time around the problem with my HK ISP had still not been resolved and the manager informed me that instead of forwarding my mail from the office PC to the business centre as per in previous years, I would have to walk the mile or so into Roscommon town centre. Not a very helpful attitude from the manager given that I had been out of touch with clients in Hong Kong since early that morning when I left the UK. Will never stay here again as a result of the manager's extremely unprofessional attitude.

Walked in to The Abbey Hotel and found a room available. Stayed 4 nights, large twin room, nicely furnished. Breakfast was average but nicely served, Carvery Lunch was excellent with large portion, many choices and very reasonably priced. Dinner service was quite pricey. It was a cold week and was unhappy to find that Management turned the heat off at night from midnight to 5:00 a.m., then again from Noon to 5:00 p.m. As Floridians we were "freezing" and had Management bring us 2 portable electrical heaters which worked out fine. Good location, close to shops and restaurants and also has a new Leisure Center which appeared to be very popular with the local residents.

I travelled to the Abbey Hotel last weekend with my partner and my 4 year old for a much deserved weekend away. I read previous reviews about this hotel so was a bit apprehensive initally - no need to be! It was excellent. The Hotel is situated on its own private grounds surrounded by beautiful gardens and is just a short walk into the town itself. The hotel is tastfully decorated in keeping with the old Manor style and has even an open lit fire in the lounge off the bar. Our room was spacious, clean and very comforatable. My 4 year old loved the the pool and my partner found the lesiure facilities second to none . The food in the restaurant was exceptional, the staff were both friendly and very helpful.

Over all we really enjoyed our stay. and we are planning to return in the new year.

We stayed here with our children on a super valu midweek break here in August last. We were very happy with the hotel as it was clean and well managed. The food was excellent and each night the menu was different. The restaurant staff were very courteous to us each night and they made sure that we got the same table each time we ate!! On the third night our youngest child grazed her knee outside and the restaurant manager gave her some treats. Our room was large and spacious and the receptionist organised an inter- joining room for us on check in even though we had not reservd one!!

The leisure centre is excellent and it suited us great to have the kids left there where they were supervised at all times.

Overall we thought the hotel was good value and perfect for the children as it is not too big. The staff were very helpful at all times and we would have no hesitation in recommending the Abbey to anyone.
