This hotel is very comfortable and has many very good facilities. The location is great too with many nice attractions and good places to eat nearby. Moreover, the staff were very friendly and they knew the local area very well too - I would certainly recommend staying here.
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....
Traveling with a 2 year old across Ireland requires a more spacious room with at least a double and a twin bed, access to small things like milk, and activities (pool). This hotel was very accommodating and its location next to a beach was fun for rock tossing and access to town. I'm also very susceptible to waking from noise and the staff went out of their way to find the perfect room for the 3 of us. I'd book there again in a minute!!
Beautiful house with great vibe, located close to everything you might need, delicious breakfast. A lot of thanks to Anthony, the owner. Very helpful, friendly and nice person.
If I ever happen to be in Athlone again, I will definitely stay in The Bastion. Highly recommended!
