“Brilliant experience”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

Had a fantastic stay in the grand hotel.rooms were beautiful, very comfortable, clean and warm, everything reasonably priced, food was lovely, unfortunately I couldn't enjoy the breakfast which looked lovely, as the reasonably priced drink got the better of me, close to amenities, was perfect for what we were staying for and the staff were extremely pleasant and very helpful and you even managed to really impress a member of our group which sometimes may be difficult. I think it was Cathal, I presume the manager, was very friendly and treated our group impeccably, highly recommend this hotel and look forward to returning in the near future.

Just back from a fantastic experience at my niece's wedding in The Grand Hotel. From the minute we entered we were greeted by such friendly and courteous staff. Everyone goes the extra mile to ensure that all needs are met. The attention to detail is second to none. A special thank you to Kieran for looking after us so well...nothing was too much trouble for him ! So a big thank you to all the staff and well done..... you all made it a very special day for everyone. We will return !!

We spent one night in Moate and found the hotel to be very clean, comfortable and with all the comforts we desired. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We ate at the attached restaurant for dinner and breakfast and really enjoyed our meals.

Breezing through Moate as part of a coach tour we stopped for lunch at the Carvery at the Grand Hotel. Nothing fancy here, just great food. Generous portions, daily specials and the absolute best lamb stew I have ever eaten. Worth a stop here for lunch!

The B+B which we had booked into in Athlone had lost our booking so we were on the streets at 23.00hrs on a bank holiday weekend. The Grand Hotel Moate were very welcoming to somebody making a late booking. They looked after us very well..
There is no lift in the hotel.
The corridors upstairs are not attractive - but whhat do you expect in an old building converted to a hotel.
Ground floor rooms were attractive in an 1990's sort of way.
The bedrooms upstairs are somewhat dated in style.

Room Tip: The main street is a quiet street nowdays do any room should be good.

Thanks you for your recent review Seeburg3Leixfort,

I’m glad to hear you had a warm welcome to the Hotel. The Grand Hotel does have a lot of history in its walls, it has been operating as the Grand Hotel for over 30 years and previously operated as the Sun Hotel for over 25 years.

It’s seen a fire in the building over 50 years ago, extensions, renovations and heard a few stories. The main building itself dates back to the 1800’s. Our rooms and hotel have a unique character and charm about them with tall windows and thick walls and big chimney breasts. We also have free WIFI in all our rooms as well as digital television.

While all our rooms are fully equipped with everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable night’s sleep, we unfortunately do not have an elevator in the building, but we are always more than happy to help each and every one of our guests to their bedroom.

We are actually in the middle or renovating the remainder of our bedrooms and we would love to welcome you back when they are all finished.

Many Thanks,
