“Great Hotel & Location”
Reviewed 5 September 2012

I stayed here with a group for a hens party and it is definitely the place to stay the hotel organise everything and are so nice and friendly. The hotel is attached to the nightclub Karma which is apparently the best nightclub in Athlone as someone who wouldn't be nightclub person I actually liked this place.
I have small children and would not personally advise to go as the weekend we were there , their was also another 3 hens. It seems to really cater for this so I could only imagine noise etc.....
But its clean, nice rooms and comfy beds!!

A real gem of a hotel. While in town on business, I spent 2 nights at The Prince of Wales, and it was certainly an excellent choice. Centrally located, in the heart of the town, it cut down on travel. Despite its close proximity to nightlife, my room was well insulated, and I slept though the night undisturbed. One of the nicer features the hotel has to offer is a call from reception about two hours after I had checked in, to see if everything was alright - in fact, the lady on the line apologised for the delay in contacting! Due to time constraints I only ate in the hotel restaurant once, but the food was top notch, the service efficient and pleasant, despite a late reservation. For business travellers, the free wi-fi is invaluble. All in all, a marvellous, modern hotel, competitively priced and excellently located.

Charming, delightful, good service and friendly staff. We had walked past the hotel a few times and decided that evening to give it a-go. Lovely experience. I will recommend it to our traveling friends.

As we were staying elsewhere my Family and I were out to have a spot of food in the evening and came across the Princes bar attached to this Hotel. We ordered 2 starters and 2 main courses & fish goujons for my 3&4 year old children. Now our dishes were nice but I have to say that the young man who intially took our order was pleasant and helpful, as for the ignorant female who looked like she wanted to be elsewhere, threw the food on the table and grunted at us with what we made out was STEAK and SALAD then walked away. I had to get my own steak knife. Never asked if we needed anything else drinks etc. The KIDS battered fish goujons were full of bones completely unexceptable for kids of 3 &4. Overall I paid the €70 and got out as quick as I could. Smile it wont kill you.
