Fabulous 8.6 From 205 reviews

Hodson Bay Hotel, Athlone
We were on our honeymoon. The bathrooms weren’t as clean as we were hoping. Our shower curtain had stains on it. The room didn’t match the rest of the public areas of the hotel. It didn’t appear as nice as the rest of the hotel. It seemed worn and outdated. It was pretty hyped up from family so we had high expectations of it. The service was great otherwise.

Stay was brilliant and the view fantastic. Staff just super and nothing was a problem for them. Will be back again.

Ireland Retreat
It is excellent for business to have a conference/meeting. It is excellent for family with children because the hotel has a lot of activities for children with the supervise from hotel experts, therefore parents can have time for just themselves only. All sport activities for all ages groups men as well as women. There is a section for couple like us to stay quietly facing the bay to see all activities without any noise, or walking along the bay, or along a beautiful golf course. The price is reasonable, the food for breakfast is plentiful, dinner can be as formal as a fancy restaurant and as informal as a pub. Transportation from the train/bus station is very efficient. Taxis was awaiting to take us to the hotel the minutes we got out of the train station. About 15 minutes to the hotel and 15 Euro including tip.

4 Stars just about right.
Lovely hotel. Excellent check in experience. Arrived late around 9:30pm and hoping for room service. After 9 only sandwiches so had to go out for food. Otherwise I cannot fault the place. Really good quality breakfast. Lovely modern leisure centre.
