Stopped off staying at the Prince of Wales on our way further West. We were met by a very friendly and helpful receptionist Aisling. Hotel ideally situated in the middle of Athlone, close to all shopping and pubs. Food in the bar area was very good, no need to look elsewhere, as it was great value. Room was very comfortable and clean with I double bed and a single. Pressure on the water in the shower not so good. Unfortunately we were kept awake till 2.30 with loud music coming from bar. When we were checking out we mentioned this to an equally friendly receptionist Aidrion (not sure of name). She gave us 10% discount on our next visit and a promise of a quieter room. Will we be back??? Most defiantly. Great spot for a weekend with the girlfriends.

Myself and 7 friends went to this hotel for a night away. The Hotel is in a brilliant location, right in the middle of Athlone, beside shops, pubs and restaurants. The staff are excellent, and went out of their way to help one of my friends who was experiencing some difficulty. The hotel is clean and bright, and was excellent value. Overall an excellent experience, thanks to all staff. We will be back again!

Nice hotel great location centre of everything. Cleanliness and service very good. Good selection of hot and cold food for breakfast. Hot food freshly cooked. Our deal included evening meal. Although it was nice the veg was luke warm. Maybe that was just me as I like my food piping hot. My husband had the fish and chips and they were ok. The other meals we had were fine. I would recommend this hotel to other travellers.

had a pleasant stay here......staff are very helpful and welcoming. food was good especially the baileys tiramisu.... Room was clean and beds comfortable. Only downside was room was newly painted and had a very strong odour of paint....this will sort itself in time. dogs barking and barrels/crates been shifted caused quite a bit of noise ....this may be a cause of concern for light sleepers. I have stayed before and will certainly stay again...

My Wife and I spent Friday night ( January 20th) in the Prince of Wales Hotel. We were traveling onwards to Dublin the next morning and used it as a stop over. We were extremely satisfied with the service we received. On Friday evening after booking in we had a nice dinner and some drinks. ( The food was excellent). We had breakfast the next morning before departure and again the food and service were excellent. The bedroom was very pleasant and comfortable . All in all we had a wonderful experience on this occasion and indeed when we stayed there a number of weeks ago.

Excellent hotel, ideally located in centre of town and beside the shopping centre, less than 5 mins walk from the train station. Hotel is excellent with very friendly and helpful staff. Bar food is top class and very reasonable

Good location in the town. Checkin staff were excellent very friendly and helpful. Room was lovely clean and newly decorated. We ate in the bar and the food was very poor. mentioned it to the bar manager and he didn't charge us for our drink which was nice. breakfast was cooked to order and very nice Overall the hotel is a little tired and run down in places definitely not 4star but a very pleasant stay all the same thanks to the wonderful staff.

We enjoyed our short stay very much and very likely to book this hotel in the future. The hotel had plenty of character and all the staff were extremely friendly (ranging from reception, cleaning and bar staff). Food was excellent.

Excellent location within walking distance of Train/Bus Station. Spotlessly clean, staff very helpful and friendly. This was my 2nd time staying here, took my mum for mothers day and a bottle of champagne was sent to our room which I thought was a lovely touch. food in the bar is excellent. I will definitely be staying here again

We spent one night here and were quite satisfied overall. The room was smallish but adequate and the double bed was huge and comfortable. It was our wedding anniversary and staff had left a bottle of bubbly and a congratulating card in our room which was a lovely touch. Staff were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Food was very good also. Overall it was a nice place to spend a night or two without being exceptional.

We stayed for one night - last Wednesday - could not fault anything. From check in to check out everything was perfect. We had a delicious meal in the bar followed by lovey cocktails. All in all I will certainly return to The Prince of Wales. Thank you for everything. Anna Fennell

The prince of wales hotel is a lovely hotel. Its just beside the shopping cent re in the middle of Athlone with easy access to all the shops. There was a friendly and helpful blond haired girl on reception who was extremely welcoming and even gave us an umbrella to use whilst out shopping to stop us getting wet.Nice touch. Free parking also which is great. The bar food was very good and the staff were very helpful. Would definitely recommend the fish cakes and the beef stir-fry. Jack and Davy in the bar on Friday night were a great ole band and livened up the place no end....The breakfast Saturday morning was delicious and great to have it served to you. No buffets or queuing. All in all we had a lovely stay at the prince of wales hotel and i will definitely go back.

The hotel is clean, comfortable and centrally located. The staff were friendly & helpful, the rooms are spacious and well laid out. Breakfast has plenty of choices whether you are a out & out carnivore or a Veggi, or just on a diet? If your stay is going to be over Thurs/Fri/Sat nights and you aren't one of the "clubbing" set ask for a room away from the front of the hotel, as even with triple glazing and a few drinks inside you, the street noise will wake you. Its a great hotel to stay at, location is good, food in the Prince's Bar was OK not as it should be at a 4* Hotel, (mebbe's the head chef was on holiday) but I would still recommend it

The hotel room and bathroom were fine - Quite comfortable and well heated. Great location - centre of town. There was a terrible smell of chlorine in the lift. Most of the staff were reasonably friendly although they could have been better. We had a bad encounter with a staff member of the nightclub (Karma) which is connected to the hotel, she was extremely rude and more or less told us that we needn't stay at the hotel again.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed on a Thursday night, hotel was very quiet which is why the resteraunt was closed and we had to have our evening meal in the bar, food was delicious but we were eating our desert in the dark as the bar was setting up for an 80's disco ! Breakfast was disappointing................room service was not available, We arrived at 10.10am for breakfast (Breakfast ran until 10.30am)..staff were clearing away the buffet so not much of a selection, the breakfast we ordered was hilarious........i asked for the veggie breakfast which consisted of patato cakes, beans, tomato and mushrooms.........I got half a patato cake, my husband had the full Irish Breakfast whic didn't consist of a patato cake, just wondering where the other half went! No cups on the table for the tea,missing cutlery, no butter for the toast etc.... Room was fine, clean and had everyting we needed.

Stayed here for one night at the end of October, room nice and big with a queen size bed. Had our meal in the bar and food was good. Breakfast cooked to order the following morning so was hot and very fresh which you don't get in many hotels anymore. Close to shopping centre and centrally located. It's a fairly lively hotel, could hear the music from the bar in our room up until 2am so just be wary, other than that no complaints.

Likewise, we stayed here on a Sunday night the food was fine in the Bar. Breakfast in the morning was fresh and cooked to order. The room was spacious and comfy. No fault with the bed, it was the size of three singles combined! DF

We stayed in the Prince of Wales hotel for two nights 2nd and 3rd Feb 2012. We had a brilliant experience and would certainly recommend it to others. Our room was very spacious with lots of storage space. We had dinner both nights and the food was excellent. Staff were very friendly in reception, restaurant and bar. Breakfast was very good with food cooked to order. It was very busy on the Saturday morning yet everything was served quickly and without fuss. The porridge with honey was lovely. An excellent location - shopping centre literally across the road, free parking and right in the centre of Athlone. We will certainly be returning. Thanks to all. Marie
