“Lovely hotel with the nicest staff and great location”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

Stayed for just one night but we will be back again. Great location overlooking the river but literally 2mins from all the shops, pubs and restaurants. Parking was a little difficult but there was alot going on in the hotel when we landed. Great buzz about the place. Check in was quick and efficient with the friendliest receptionist I have ever met. Room was fine. Bar staff were lovely and were quick to clear our tables and keep them tidy (there was a gang of about 20 of us so plenty of glasses/bottles and I HATE when the table is overflowing). Big comfy bed had a great night’s sleep. Had breakfast in bed..it was lovely. (One thing though and it’s not just this hotel...how do they cook their scrambled egg..it’s just weird in all hotels...). Check out was quick. Will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room over looking the river..

Dear Guest

I was delighted to see your fantastic review of the Radisson Blu Hotel, It was always great to receive positive feedback from our Guests especially regarding the staff.
I will be sending on your comments to all the team here at the hotel including the Reception and Bar Manager.
The emphasis of welcoming our guests on arrival to the hotel and making sure they feel instantly at home is very important and is something I would like to think instilled in the entire team . Looking forward to welcoming you back to Athlone again in the very near future

Many Thanks
Martina Donoghue

My husband and I spent a weekend in this hotel two weeks ago. They staff were really friendly, the accommodation was clean and comfortable but the food left a lot to be desired. If you are a vegetarian, don't go here as they are not prepared to provide anything much to eat.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to review the Radisson Blu Hotel on TripAdvisor and in turn providing us with valuable feedback.
I am sorry you found our menu offering so limited and I have already circulated and discussed your feedback with the Head Chef Philip O Reilly who will make sure going forward this does not arise again by offering more options to our Vegatarian customers.
I am delighted to hear you otherwise enjoyed your stay here with us and that you found the staff friendly and helpful and the accommodation comfortable.
Please contact me here at the hotel if you are ever travelling to the Athlone area again and I would be delighted to look after you
Many Thanks
Martina Donoghue

A nice hotel but probably a bit too busy on our stay. We could not find any parking in hotel grounds until very late in the evening, took ages to check in due to staff shortage, alot of food listed on menu was not available.
On a good note staff very helpful and friendly , rooms adequate and clean good atmosphere in hotel. May have been a better stay if hotel was not so busy.

Dear Guest
Thank you for reviewing the Radisson Blu Hotel online. I most appreciate you providing us with the feedback in your review. Sometimes during peak times throughout the day and with different events going on it can get very busy the car park, our priority as always is our overnight guests. I am sorry to hear you also had a delay on checking in and this is something I hope will not arise again as it is certainly below standard for the Radisson Blu.
I have also spoke to the Head Chef about the menu offering and he has looked into why this occured so as to eliminate this occuring again.
I am glad to hear that otherwise you enjoyed your stay with us and the hotel staff welcoming and friendly. Please do not hesitate to contact me here at the hotel if you are ever in the area as I would be delighted to look after you.
Many Thanks

I stayed here in January for a saturday night. It's an average 3 star. We ate in the restaurant and it was ok, nothing great. I think this would be a grand hotel to stay in if you were in Athlone for something or you were a business traveller and you just needed a bed for the night. There is nothing redeeming really and it's very tired looking.
