I stayed in September for my birthday as a surprise organised by my partner. We had booked spa treatments which we were then called and asked to change the time of them. We were then 2 minutes away from the hotel when we got a call to be told our treatments had to be cancelled. I was a bit upset as it was all booked as a present for my birthday, however, the manager on shift offered us a suite and a cocktail each to make up for it. He was lovely. The reception lady however, had a face on her the whole time and I found her very uncomfortable to speak to. I work at reception myself and I can understand how it can be difficult if a guest is complaining, but you're not supposed to make them feel more uncomfortable. I decided to go ahead and stay the night anyway and had no regrets. The room was gorgeous. The bar area is a bit small but the staff were very friendly. The location is okay, it's a bit out of Athlone town, but if it's a quiet night away you're looking for its the perfect location! Overall, I would stay again if I could get over my embarrassment of crying in front of the staff!
Stayed here on an overnight package with a spa treatment and afternoon tea included. The room was big and comfortable however the handle to the bathroom was completely broken. The beds were very comfortable. We opted from breakfast in bed (€5 per tray) and that very generous. The beauty treatment was an absolute joke. Save yourself the money, run a bath and put on your own face mask. For sure, the worst facial I have ever received. We did complain and the staff at reception said they would ask the manager to contact us. Not a word was heard. Afternoon tea was bizarre... we got three plates of desserts and one plate of sandwiches. Very unusual but was ok. We had a cocktail included in the price (€8/cocktail). Neither of us drink and so asked for a non alcoholic beer in stead (€4 each). This caused a huge difficulty but eventually we were given one each. I said in reality we should receive two beers each.... nope. However they did give us room service for free. Would I return? To the beauty rooms - absolutely not. The hotel? Only if I happened to be in the area i.e. I wouldn't choose to return.
Stayed here last night. The rooms are really nice and the bed was very comfy. The staff on check in were very polite and friendly. The breakfast was a different story, we arrived into the dining room and waited to be seated but no one came to seat us so we just picked our own table as there was plenty free. The staff were really nice with the exception of one guy who didn’t seem like he wanted to be there, I went up to get some hot food and there was little left so I asked this guy was there more on the way. I just got a grunt off him. Apart from this I liked the place and would go back again
I stayed in the hotel last week and really enjoyed myself. Lovely Hotel and Facilities The staff and food were excellent but I have to give one mention though to the barmaid Shauna she was lovely. Chatted with her throughout and made my stay.
Attended a business function here recently, would highly recommend. Great facilities, friendly staff, comfortable modern surroundings. Projector was good, tea/coffee was fresh . Will definitely be visiting again.
The level of customer service at this hotel is exceptional. From booking until we checked out they could not do enough to make sure we enjoyed out stay. Wonderful spa, nice facilities, lovely food and comfortable rooms. Perfect place for a couple of days away. Only disadvantage is you have to take a taxi to go any where. But it's worth it to stay here.
Stayed with my wife Ann last evening. She has a bad back and requires a good bed. One would expect a hotel to have comfortable supportive beds, not here. The Staff tried their best and we were shown three rooms, eventually finding one bed out of ten that Ann could sleep in. We were told by Donal that there were no complaints about the beds, a quick look through the hotels poor reviews here belies that assertion. The room we eventually stayed in had very loud extractor fans outside, probably over pool or kitchen, why these had to run at 23:00hrs is beyond me. Don't stay here is you want a good nights sleep. The staff did their very best in very difficult circumstances.
Not many complaints, comfortable hotel, lots of space, decent food, residents bar stayed open plenty late. Bar staff need training. They can't pull a decent pint of Guinness, any of them. And I don't like the fact that drink it 10-15c more expensive in the ballroom than the bar. A single note should cover a drink as it does in the bar. There is no need to add on a few cent making things awkward and having to break larger notes.
Was here for a wedding and the stay was very nice, the food and staff were very good but the miniature tvs in the rooms is a let down for me and the hotel location. Is away from the main town but taking all into account it is a very nice hotel
I got a bowl of potato and leek soup with a toasted ham, cheese and red onion sandwich there. You can pretty much have as many fillings as you like in your sandwich. Tasty grub and quick service from barmen/waiters who were polite, sharp and efficient. Definitely recommended.
