Pleasant human contact v luxury surrounds

Posted Nov 18, 2014 on Hotels.com
It was a family wedding... Room was clean and served our needs... We had an initial problem with door lock and reception had maintained it immediately... Were going to move us to apartment if it couldn't be fixed but it was fixed... Little dissapointed at not being upgraded to apartment but it really would have been a waste for the few hours we spent in the room... Had second problem turning on hot tap... Sent someone right away... Turns out it was my mistake as taps turned on in opposite directions... We were room only and were asked if we had breakfast vouchers in dining room.. We hadn't and were told no problem... Lovely breakfast served by friendly staff... Went to reception afterwards to settle up for breakfast to be told by the lovely reception lady.. No it's fine ye had enough trouble with yer room.. While this may not be a five star luxury hotel the personal service more than made up for any fancy decor. It was a pleasant experience and I would recommend it.

November Visit

Posted Nov 16, 2014
Pros: Great value for the money for our off season visit. Bar food was nice. We would enjoy returning.
Cons: They had a REALLY friendly stray cat hanging around. They should adapt it or find it a home. This sounds trivial, but from our view, it's not.
Location: Athlone Castle, Clonmacnoise Monastery site, a very attractive town area within walking distance from the hotel. We'd like to return.
We stopped in November to visit the area. Unfortunately we hit some very wet weather. but that's how it goes. Athlone Castle is a great place to visit. Can't say much else because of the rain although what we did see from the car window looked like a great place to walk through. Town center is within walking distance of the hotel. Overall, it looks like a nice place to stay for 2 days where you want a leisurely break. Maybe next time....

The Shamrock Lodge

Posted Nov 4, 2014
Pros: Everything. great rooms, nice food, friendly staff
Cons: Nothing
Location: The hotel is just outside the town of Athlone, it is just a short walk or drive to the shops and other local attractions including a castle and fabulo
The hotel was lovely. The rooms were really big and the beds were so comfortable. There were all the facilities you could wish for at the hotel and the staff were really friendly and helpful. The whole stay was so relaxing and there was so much choice for breakfast that I don't think anyone could moan!

Needs update and freshly cooked food

Posted Nov 2, 2014 on Hotels.com
Hotel stay was okay. On the negative side - room was quite dusty, and bathroom tiles cracked. Food in hotel did not appear to be freshly cooked - scrambled eggs in breakfast tasted like powdered ones, bulk-buy deserts.
