Staff friendly and atmosphere was good. Room a little dated & no complimentary water which I would consider a basic requirement in a hotel room.

Excellant hotel next to the lake

Pros: There is a section for adults only and a section for families .
Cons: The food in the bar was excellent but there was only one option for a vegetarian and none for a vegan.
Location: The location is great , a short trip into Athlone and plenty of tourist attractions within a short driving distance.
Very clean and comfortable , lots of activities nearby .
