Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed into this hotel for 2 nights mid week… on check in met lovely person in and advised us of local attractions and amenities…we went into town but on return into bar ordered A pint of Coors and Glass of White Wine from Aaron… beer €6.50 and wine €8 extortionate prices less in sister hotels…which was served in a roasting hot glass… when I complained and asked for it to be changed I was met with nothing but disrespect..we went for a swim the following morning….locker room not cleaned from day before(apparent from signings on door)…. Tiles falling off wall and stinking around pool …. It should be condemned….Room and bed very comfortable but bank of condensing units that clicked in and out all night destroyed experience….lastly I didn’t post since leaving last Friday week morning waiting for my points to be added to my iNua account( which has to be sorted by manager apparently )which still hasn’t happened… wishful thinking !!very very disappointing

Where to start …no point being a member as it means nothing - went to check in where phones kept ringing very annoying when trying to talk - asked was it a double & single bed as I had requested told only 2 single beds ..asked what cost was for upgraded room which had double & single bed couldn’t give an answer - then told could push beds together to make a double- why when I’m travelling with a pre-teen boy! was using a voucher for partial payment and staff member didn’t know what to do - greeting poor considering first time travelling here! Leisure centre was actually disgusting-changing area filthy and obvious signs children had gone to toilet on ground-was talking with a lady there & she had informed staff of the mess of the place & no one went in to clean it - we were there over an hour and when returned still in same mess as when left it!! Doors missing off lockers …ones with a lock didn’t even work..has huge potential but they don’t seem to care. Room was small - bathroom had bits of tile missing, mould in bath area - toilet hadn’t been cleaned properly before us. Mattress was quite poor - could even feel the springs. Bar food while nice - staff not at all trained in customer service- took ages to order and it wasn’t even that busy - no coordination, had to ask for cutlery & order our drinks from bar ourselves. Breakfast was grand nothing to write home about for a 4 star hotel- my son had to ask 2 staff members to help with pancake machine and neither acknowledged him. In room - my son was sitting at desk playing chess when back part came down on his legs - it wasn’t even screwed in or secured- resulting in a bruise on each leg. Tv has about 4 channels - very poor for families. At 9am first morning staff knocked on door and asked if we needed towels - why wake patrons at this time - we left room after 11 came back at 6.30pm and beds hadn’t been made up or room cleaned. I was so looking forward to this stay and based it off reviews of the hotel but in my opinion It’s a shambles of a place and couldn’t justify spending money there again - we have stayed in Radisson hotels elsewhere and definitely of better quality and service than Athlone.

We had a lovely room overlooking the river where you could watch the boats go past from your bed. The room was clean and had everything you needed. I would have wished there were more gluten free options at breakfast, other than that it was great.

I arrived at the hotel to head to see Nathan Carter, first of all I didn’t even get into the hotel as the car park was full, I paid €7.70 for parking and it was all full. The staff member said that the car park was full and if we seen a parking space we were lucky. That is absolutely disgusting that they are taking money off people for parking when they know the capacity of the car park. I then drove around athlone for 2 hours looking for a parking space and I didn’t make the show. The parking situation needs to change it is a bloody joke 😡

Our concierges (Joy and Giovanni) were amazingly helpful and friendly (and even suggested dishes to try, and they were absolutely right). The food was wonderful, and the view of the River Shannon was beautiful and the room was huge. When we arrived we had been upgraded without us knowing (thank you Joy) and we went from a Standard Room to a Junior Suite (my first time being upgraded, and was made even more special as we never asked for it, so was a very nice surprise). The room as clean and tidy, it was also warm and well laid out. The Breakfast staff were also very helpful and very friendly. We ordered Room service, and it arrived fairly quickly (especially since they were really busy at the time), and the food was absolutely incredible. The only bad part of the whole experience was the next morning we had asked if we could get some directions to a local shop to buy some milk, and one of the morning Concierges convinced us that she would send someone up with some milk to save us going for a walk (I was happy to go out and buy some, but she was insistent). The milk never arrived, and we ended up having to leave and buy some anyway. They were incredibly busy, so I think some wires may have been crossed. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking to stay in Athlone... just avoid the R Roads in Ireland, they are tiny, so use the Main Roads into and out of Athlone. But, if you can, try and get a room with a view over the River, it is beautiful.

Definitely not like the photos on their website. The whole hotel is in need of serious refurbishment, inside and out. The decor looks like tattered 1980s. My room had a lovely view of the car park and a telecommunications tower. My colleague, who paid the same as me, was given a business class room with a view of the river, Nespresso machine, etc. Location is great as it's right in the centre. Traffic noise was an issue, but it calmed down after 11pm so I slept fine. Breakfast was adequate, but I've had better in 3* hotels. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean, just the usual mouldy grout in the bathroom. The facilities for our training course were terrible, with a lot of noise from the service area and really awful sandwiches for lunch. In general, I expected better from the Radisson brand.

We arrived on the 4th of March and left on the 6th . I have to say the staff where so kind and helpful. The food was second to none we dined in the bar and it was lovely. Our room was clean and bright. There was a small problem in the bathroom the door stopper was right infront of the toilet I felt it was a bit of a hazard as I kicked it by accident. Other then that our experience was absolutely fab and I would definitely use yer hotel again

Very expensive for what it is. When you pay €200 a night for a small town hotel in February, the expectations are high. However, this Radisson Blu does not deliver. Most shocking was the lack of air conditioning in the rooms, they were very warm and stuffy, with windows that barely open and no ventilation of any kind. Very uncomfortable and unsanitary, making you wonder if that is even legal? Also no breakfast, and limited parking in an exceedingly dirty car park. Overall the hotel is disappointing and hugely overpriced.

I had a lovely stay in the Radisson. The Hotel is in a great location and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The gym and the pool was great and the staff in the gym were lovely to deal. The gym looks out onto the river and at dusk or dawn it is a lovely view. Breakfast is really nice. Tulay & the staff there were very very friendly each morning I met them.

Stayed here for 1 night, we were at a wedding near by so we did not have dinner in the hotel. Room was decent and hotel is a good base for visiting the town of Athlone as it is within walking distance of the town. Waited a long time at reception to get checked in as it was exceptionally busy. Breakfast was below average, burnt toast and strange looking sausages. Had to ask for tea 3 times from the server.
