The location of this bar and hotel is central to everything you could want in Athlone. The best part my experience there was the evening meal in the bar. Our waiter Gary was everything you could want, brought us everything we needed in a timely manor, very pleasant and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed out meal there and would definitely go back.

This hotel is a little gem tucked away in the centre of Athlone close to all attractions and amenities. It offers excellent value for those looking for a base to explore the Shannon River and Lough Ree. Rooms are a good size, and tastefully furnished. Tea/coffee, Ironing board, hairdryer, flat screen tv and dvd player. The bathroom was a reasonable...

When we arrived, we were greeted by an empty, unmanned service desk, and only when I called out into an adjoining office did I get waited on. Our room was...
