I have to say, though we had been to many hotels, this definitely tops all. We got a quiet room with all mod com, the breakfast was superb. I am on a special diet and it was no problem to receive gluten free and milk free. The staff was corteous, the swimming pool clean. All in all we were very impressed.

Myself, my husband and my 2 children had a wonderful stay at the Abbey Hotel. The staff were all extremely friendly and polite. We ate each night at the hotel and the food was delicious. We all enjoyed the leisure facility. The staff here were lovely too. I have recommended this hotel to my sister and she has booked 2 nights stay. Her daughter thinks she is staying in a princess castle.... She is so excited.

Excellent Hotel. Leisure facilities very good. Staff very friendly. Would stay again.

by Valerie on Feb 27 2017 11:49

Very nice hotel, lovely, helpful staff and food was excellent. We ate in the bar on the first night and the restaurant the second night. Rooms were very warm and beds could have been more comfortable. However, kids had a great time and enjoyed their time in the lovely pool. Took a trip to Zipit at Lough Key and to the Arigna Mine on the way home.

+ Within walking distance of Roscommon town, gorgeous abbey and nice staff. We were away for my boyfriend's birthday and they left chocolates and a bottle of prosecco in our room. - There is no heating!! Our room was very cold. -Our shower was hot the first day but on the second day it was barely warm. -The restaurant food was not very nice and is extremely overpriced. Poor service from the waitresses also. In fairness to the staff they did take the soup off our bill when we complained! -The plugs in our room were quite inaccessible. -There is no mini-fridge which would be a welcome addition to keep water chilled. -The decor is also a bit outdated. Overall, it did not seem like a 4 star standard hotel.

Very nice stay at the abbey. It is a nice and relaxed hotel and the staff are very good. There is lovely lawn to sit out on as well if the sun is shining and it backs on to the well preserved ruins of an old Abbey. The hotel is a short walk from Roscommon town and a short drive from Lough Ree. Great pint of Guinness as well!

I would like to write this review because both my Husband Micheal and myself were so superbly impressed with this hotel. Our first impression was how spotlessly clean every inch of this hotel was from the reception to the toilets, to the eating areas and the bedrooms were immaculate. We found the hospitality and the welcome second to none. I am a vegan and the chef and waiting staff catered for my every need in an effortless and efficient way. My husband who is particular about the quality of the food said the meat, the vegetables and the desserts were of an outstanding quality. We had our almost 3 year old daughter with us and we spent tons of time in the leisure center which was immaculately clean, warm and so much fun for her. we would recommend this hotel to anyone who loves a quality stay away be it for a night or two away will be more than impressed with this family friendly hotel.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Reception area, lounge & bar all very nice. Rooms could do with modernisation although they were very clean. Spacious room and bathroom. Leisure centre very good and also very clean. Lovely staff, in particular the young barman (I can't remember his name but I believe he was Polish). Less than 10 minute stroll to the town. Nice pub across the road if you want a change of scenery - Bear an Raille/The Railway Bar. Food in restaurant and bar very good. I didn't eat in the carvery but it was very busy for a Monday & Tuesday so the food must be good.

Stayed for two nights and totally enjoyed our stay. We just wanted to get away sit and chill . This hotel an 18th century hotel has kept as hard as it is its oldness, despite the younger generation wanting the modern box look. Sorry but if you want time out , top class food good selection of beverages this is the spot. Staff were excellent in every way. We got the delux suite and man talk about going back in time. Wooden sash windows coving original and four poster bed with carved poles. Tv didnt have many stations as i watch the news channels and discovery , but i wasnt there for tv. Were definately going back as these hotels are hard to find. Check out the stained glass throughout the hotel as it tells a story. I figured it out but it took a while. History. clue J Rochfort

Nice hotel lovely staff no complaints at all about stay

by Patricia Hayes on Jul 18 2016 10:08

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Abbey. Room was clean and staff very friendly. There was a quiet and calm atmosphere which suited us for a relaxing break. Food was also nice, but we felt the breakfast could have been hotter. Overall though, we had a lovely break and would definitely visit again.

by Anna on Jun 20 2016 12:43

Very pleasant stay. Friendly and efficient staff. Old fashioned decor but charming.

by JEngo on Mar 23 2016 10:51

Stayed here with the kids for one night. Room was ok, could do with being redecorated. The food was really excellent, the pool was too. Would recommend this hotel and will definitely be back.

by EQ on Feb 22 2016 06:51

Lovely stay. Great food and friendly staff. Pool clean and big.

Had a lovely break at the abbey hotel. the decor was beautiful and the atmosphere was relaxing the perfect place to relax and unwind my two kids loved it also.

by Anne Doyle on Jun 10 2014 13:28

Lovely Hotel had a lovely break, staff were excellent will definelty go back to The Abbey Hotel

by Lorna on Jun 3 2014 21:54

I love the Abbey Hotel. It's got old world charm. The staff are friendly. The atmosphere is relaxed. The food is good. The rooms are nice. The pool is lovely. We had a great stay... again. Very reasonable rate too for 2 adults and three children. Perfect for a relaxing, quiet break yet only a short walk from Roscommon town centre.

by Brenda on Mar 4 2014 15:41

Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in The Abbey Hotel. Lovely friendly staff but as stated before probably not 4 star. Lovely old fashioned room but bed was small and too hot so not a great nights sleep. Pool area was lovely and everywhere was spotlessly clean. Would definitely return and to visit Artisan Bakery across the road.

by Drummer68 on Feb 24 2014 14:21

Our family of 4 had a good sized family room. The breakfast was very good with good choice. We used the pool and gym. We also had an excellent evening meal. We found the staff very friendly and helpful.

by Maurice - Dublin on Feb 4 2014 15:23

Lovely hotel for a weekend break - great value for money - lovely staff - very nice and comfortable rooms - they certainly don't compromise on the heat - the hotel was extremely warm during a very cold January. Facilities are excellent - we didn't get to test the Leisure Centre - maybe next time.

by V. F. on Jan 9 2014 20:11

Old style hotel. Room clean and food good quality. Nice pool area. Staff very plesant. Will return again. V F Dublin.

by Clare Elodie on Dec 4 2013 14:08

Lovely hotel, food is excellent, very central spot. Found the hotel at bit noisy at night but apart from that it was lovely.

by Shiela M on Nov 5 2013 10:50

We stayed in the Abbey Hotel in Roscommon for a two-night break with our daughter. From the start the staff were exceptionally nice, helpful and friendly. The hotel is set in a lovely quiet area of the town, even though it is just a short walk from the town itself. While it says 4 Star, it really was more a shabby chic 4 star as it was a bit worn and dishevelled! However, the bar and lounge was just so comfortable, we spent most of our time just eating, drinking and talking in the lounge. The bar food was so good we didn't get a chance to try the restaurant. The staff were very accommodating and really very helpful without being intrusive. It really is a lovely hotel and we will definitely be back soon!

by Eoghan Young on Nov 1 2013 10:40

Great find for the family, will be going back

by Yorkie on Sep 11 2013 15:02

The hotel was lovely just a bit disappointed that the double room did not have double bed. Also lots of noise through the pipes at night. Other wise very pleasant and breakfast was lovely.

by yog on Aug 26 2013 13:05

Excellent swimming pool which my son and myself used twice. The staff were friendly and the hotel is a good base to explore the surrounding areas. But we had two issues, when we went to get our fry at breakfast the sausages looked like they spent the weekend in the Arigna mines......they were black and burnt to a crisp (also no beans on shouldn't have to ask). Also the beds were too hard unless you needed extreme support for your spine.....not a great nights sleep. This hotel should be a 3 Star not a 4 star.

by avril on Aug 23 2013 15:23

Stayed in the Abbey last week , not what I expected , rooms were very small very basic hotel , I will not be returning.

by Mary Dunne on Aug 16 2013 14:35

We found the Abbey Hotel a great Hotel. It has excellent facilities and is set in beautiful surroundings. We found the staff very helpful and friendly, and the breakfast we received on both mornings of our stay was excellent. We hope to return to the Abbey Hotel. Star rating 4 Thank you

by Nathalie on Feb 14 2013 10:05

I spent 1 night with my husband and my son and we had a great time. All the staff was very friendly, the swimming pool was great and we enjoyed the food too. Lovely hotel with a lot of character.

by A on Dec 13 2012 09:20

friendly helpful comfortable. one thing that I feel sends the quality tumbling downwards is the tannoi announcements of evening events. disrupts the peace of a nice meal, conversation etc.awful!

by marcella donaghy on Aug 12 2012 20:21

by paul on Dec 2 2011 16:53

Had a pleasant stay,staff were very friendly and leisure centre facilities were excellent.

by therese on Oct 14 2011 10:04

the picture they have of the front of the hotel looks like a castle which is lovely and i thought the rest of the building would look like this to but it doesnt it is very deceiving as there is an extenion on the side that are the rooms and it looks out of place as we were driving up to it. its a lovely hotel ,rooms are lovely and clean, pool area is a bit plain and it is not for children

by Kevin O Brien on May 1 2011 12:40

The hotel is lovely, the room was grand and the pool,sauna etc were excellent. There was no information in the hotel itself as regards things to do and see in Roscommon.

by Mairin on Apr 29 2011 22:03

Myself, my husband and 2 boys booked in to this hotel over the Easter ( 2011) and we had a really lovely stay. The hotel is very family friendly and our family room was good and spacious and clean. The food in the restaurant was very good - however, I do think that the hotel need to look at their food pricing as it would be good to see a good value Table De Hote menu. I dropped a star from the rating as the leisure centre needs an injection of cash and also, I think the hotel is really a good 3 star hotel as opposed to a 4 star hotel. All in all - a calm relaxing break and we would return.,

by Loulou on Apr 27 2011 10:48

Great Value for money, pool area and facilities were great, the rooms were nice and spacious, food was okay and the service was okay.

by David John on Mar 29 2011 18:28

The Abbey Hotel is one of the best hotels that We have recently stayed in. The hotel rooms are spacious and immaculate. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant was excellent. The leisure centre was well equiped and clean. We will definately be returning for a longer stay in the near future.

by Michael on Oct 19 2010 09:35

<p>+Very quiet location close to town centre. +Very majestic Castle style building. +Breakfast very good. +Bar area ane resturaunt were nice -Rooms need refurbishing - very dark and old. -Room was cold - heating was not on and there was a plug in heater in the room. I have not seen this in a 4 Star hotel before. -Overall based on our experience I would say this is more a 3 Star than a 4 Star </p>
