Nice enough hotel in a beautiful location. The stuff and service was great in all areas except the restaurant which was a bit odd and slow. A little annoying that you still had to book time slots for breakfast and the pool.

Didn't like the welcome message, made me feel most unwelcome. Apparently you MUST book meals and facilities 2 days before you arrive - a bit difficult when you are working and staying for a whole week. Consequently I didn't eat at the hotel or use it's facilities. Athlone was a short drive and had plenty of good restaurants. The hotel room was nice and comfortable. I felt safe in the hotel and the surrounding area. Parking was ok but you are fighting for a decent space with the spa/gym users who obviously cant walk more than 10 yards to the jogging machine, lol. Parking was not really a problem. Safe & comfortable is all I really need and will stay again in the future.

Another very comfortable stay
Stayed with friends for 1 night, while touring with motorcycles. I have stayed here a few times previously and have always enjoyed it. The swimming pool facilities are excellent. The parking is very cramped (a wedding was (At the same time) The location is beautiful Breakfast was a let down - quantity was fine as it was a buffet, however the quality of the cooked breakfast was well belowaverage. Other than that the stay was very nice.
