Exhausting!
I chose this hotel because of the reviews, so I am aware that my review is swimming against the tide. The 4:30 check in time is ridiculous, the day is gone and there is no time for sightseeing. We booked a Superior Lake View Room. What we got was a view of a roof, next a view of twenty smokers, and finally a wall of trees. When I asked (politely) why the superior lake view rooms didn't have a lake view the manager icily informed me that a lake view was guaranteed only with a deluxe room. The manager's offer to relocate us to a fourth "inferior room,” was an outright slap. Complain and get downgraded? We got hardly any sleep that night - room was boiling hot, air con not working, we opened the window only to be serenaded by the pool equipment. All. Night. Long. Note to the hotel: Don't use the words superior, lake, and view in the description of a room that you know shows only roof, trees, and equipment. Your wording sets an expectation of a standard that is incongruent with what you actually offer. Maybe the other reviewers lucked out because nothing went wrong, but the staff's inability to deal correctly with problems when they arose really let the hotel down. My husband, the most easy-going sweet man on the planet, has asked that we never return there. Never. Ever. Again.

A Perfect 24-hour Vacation
I had an afternoon meeting scheduled in this hotel so I thought I might as well stay overnight. I am so glad I did! This establishment gets all the big things right, and all the little things as well. I particularly appreciated that they not only got a room ready for me shortly after my early arrival but they rang my mobile to let me know it was ready, although I was perfectly comfortable in one of their many attractive lounges. I had a large, comfortable room with a lake view and a bathroom that was larger than my last NYC apartment. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and a very nice touch is that there is an urn of ice water to which you can help yourself throughout the day. I had lunch and dinner in the bar, where the food was very pleasant, but I'm sorry I missed out on their elegant-looking restaurant, L'Escale. As they have a very favourable rate on midweek breaks for the Over 55 set, I may very well be back. All in all, a 24-hour visit left me refreshed and relaxed -- the perfect 24-hour vacation.

Hotel needs renovation of older section
rooms are very tired looking and worn. Furniture looks old and is not contemporary. Room colors drab. Bathroom looks dated and the old marble tiles (if that is what it is) needs to be replaced with something brighter and more contemporary in our opinion. Look at the Sneem Hotel as a model of what some fresh and contemporary lighting, ceramic tiles, rugs, bright wall colors and furniture can do to make the room attractive. The noise (we were a few floors above the entrance) made sleeping almost impossible. small bugs on bathroom floor were unappealing . Bar food was good as was the service generally.

Beautiful location away from it all
Spent a very relaxing night here. Room was fantastic, but had no wi-fi service (we were in one of the most remote rooms). We were able to use our devices in the other parts of the hotel. Also, seems to be a family-oriented hotel, so lots of kids running about. But beautiful location on a lake next to a golf course. The food was terrific in the bar, and we had a very good night's sleep.

Wish I had a boat
We stayed one night on way to Connemara, very easy to find location off highway but felt rural with the huge lake. Very comfortable and would definitely stay again if I am passing through Athlone area.
