Was in town for business, booked into the Prince of Wales Hotel. Did not know much about it but was very pleasantly surprised. Don't be put off by the slightly run-down car park. The hotel when you get in is warmly (and stylishly) decorated, comfortable, and well maintained. Very nice bar area serving good food too. Reception and other staff...

Kind staff, went over and above their duty on our unplanned extended stay. Nice, modern and well kept rooms. Bar was comfortable and charming, food smelled great although we didn't eat there. Reasonable prices midweek, and quiet. Could be a different story at weekends though as there is a nightclub attached/very close by. Centrally located and convenient parking. Thank you...

Clean rooms, good value and beautiful breakfast. Fabulous service and receptionists (especially Aisling, who we met on our visit in August) and close proximity to shopping. Karma nightclub underneath and couldnt hear a thing. Wouldnt think of staying anywhere else in Athlone and we will certainly return. Visited twice in August and March '16

We stayed for one night (the night before Paddy's Day), and we loved it! Everyone in Dublin balked at us for going to Athlone until we told them we planned to stay here, and their tones changed dramatically. Quite the local impression! Check in was easy and they have dedicated parking. The staff was courteous throughout the stay. We pre-paid...
