On a recent trip to Athlone we decided to stop here for some lunch. All I can say is that the food was like something you would throw out.

A lovely hotel on the banks of Lough Ree with views out over. Friendly & helpful staff. Excellent food especially breakfast. Large & comfy room with big bathroom with separate shower & bath. Swimming pool excellent. A thoroughly enjoyable 2 nights. Beware though the hotel is very busy with weddings etc.

This will be our last stop at the hodson on our route from castlebar to dublin, food and chefs have gone seriously downhill, Beef this time was gross, way over done. Chef serving self and wife literally throwing food on our plates like it was slop for a pig-farm, Doubtful we'll stop again, disappointing.
