"Great hotel to relax and take in the countryside"
Glasson Hotel is a scenic and beautiful area surrounded by a golf course and Lough (lake). It is a family owned and operated hotel. We met Mom, Dad and daughter, who actually helped carry my bag. The staff is warm and friendly and that comes from the owners.
The general manager stopped by to chat one day at lunch and upon hearing of where we were headed pulled out his cell and called ahead to have an acquaintance meet up with us. It turned out to be the highlight of our entire Irish holiday.
Glasson & Athlone are in the center of Ireland and are less 'touristy' than Dublin, Galway or Cork so if you are interested in seeing part of the Irish countryside and meet with the locals we highly recommend staying here. We were thrilled with our stay and sorry to leave.

The hotel is so lovely, modern and very clean. I would definitely recommend it and will stay there again in the future. There is a swimming pool and its in a great location if you want to do a spot of shopping.
"Staff especially obliging, helpful and friendly."
Enjoyed the Monday night music and atmosphere. Felt as if I was abroad looking out on the Shannon while drinking a cappuccino. But have to say that it was the staff that made the real difference. Made costumer feel valued. From the guy who was prepared to lug a table and chairs from afar so that we could see the band while eating, to the smiling waitress who got me my green tea every morning at breakfast. Your willingness to please and help made a big difference. Thank you.
We stayed here at this hotel for 12 days, we were made welcome, staff were helpful and friendly. Cannot fault anything about it, food was wonderful they cater for all. Breakfast was great too, so much to choose from. We did attend a function here too, our family reunion and a three course meal was enjoyed by everyone. Our room was kept wonderfully clean. A pleasant stay and it has a wonderful family country feel about it. Of course we enjoyed the bar in the evenings friendly staff once again especially Finton. Will definitely stay here next time we visit Athlone.
Beautiful house with great vibe, located close to everything you might need, delicious breakfast. A lot of thanks to Anthony, the owner. Very helpful, friendly and nice person.
If I ever happen to be in Athlone again, I will definitely stay in The Bastion. Highly recommended!
