really nice hotel, kid friendly, food 10/10, pool lovely and warm, bed very comfortable, we will be back :-)
I have to say, though we had been to many hotels, this definitely tops all. We got a quiet room with all mod com, the breakfast was superb. I am on a special diet and it was no problem to receive gluten free and milk free. The staff was corteous, the swimming pool clean. All in all we were very impressed.
Myself, my husband and my 2 children had a wonderful stay at the Abbey Hotel. The staff were all extremely friendly and polite. We ate each night at the hotel and the food was delicious. We all enjoyed the leisure facility. The staff here were lovely too. I have recommended this hotel to my sister and she has booked 2 nights stay. Her daughter thinks she is staying in a princess castle.... She is so excited.
Excellent Hotel. Leisure facilities very good. Staff very friendly. Would stay again.
Very nice hotel, lovely, helpful staff and food was excellent. We ate in the bar on the first night and the restaurant the second night. Rooms were very warm and beds could have been more comfortable. However, kids had a great time and enjoyed their time in the lovely pool. Took a trip to Zipit at Lough Key and to the Arigna Mine on the way home.
+ Within walking distance of Roscommon town, gorgeous abbey and nice staff. We were away for my boyfriend's birthday and they left chocolates and a bottle of prosecco in our room. - There is no heating!! Our room was very cold. -Our shower was hot the first day but on the second day it was barely warm. -The restaurant food was not very nice and is extremely overpriced. Poor service from the waitresses also. In fairness to the staff they did take the soup off our bill when we complained! -The plugs in our room were quite inaccessible. -There is no mini-fridge which would be a welcome addition to keep water chilled. -The decor is also a bit outdated. Overall, it did not seem like a 4 star standard hotel.
Very nice stay at the abbey. It is a nice and relaxed hotel and the staff are very good. There is lovely lawn to sit out on as well if the sun is shining and it backs on to the well preserved ruins of an old Abbey. The hotel is a short walk from Roscommon town and a short drive from Lough Ree. Great pint of Guinness as well!
I would like to write this review because both my Husband Micheal and myself were so superbly impressed with this hotel. Our first impression was how spotlessly clean every inch of this hotel was from the reception to the toilets, to the eating areas and the bedrooms were immaculate. We found the hospitality and the welcome second to none. I am a vegan and the chef and waiting staff catered for my every need in an effortless and efficient way. My husband who is particular about the quality of the food said the meat, the vegetables and the desserts were of an outstanding quality. We had our almost 3 year old daughter with us and we spent tons of time in the leisure center which was immaculately clean, warm and so much fun for her. we would recommend this hotel to anyone who loves a quality stay away be it for a night or two away will be more than impressed with this family friendly hotel.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Reception area, lounge & bar all very nice. Rooms could do with modernisation although they were very clean. Spacious room and bathroom. Leisure centre very good and also very clean. Lovely staff, in particular the young barman (I can't remember his name but I believe he was Polish). Less than 10 minute stroll to the town. Nice pub across the road if you want a change of scenery - Bear an Raille/The Railway Bar. Food in restaurant and bar very good. I didn't eat in the carvery but it was very busy for a Monday & Tuesday so the food must be good.
Stayed for two nights and totally enjoyed our stay. We just wanted to get away sit and chill . This hotel an 18th century hotel has kept as hard as it is its oldness, despite the younger generation wanting the modern box look. Sorry but if you want time out , top class food good selection of beverages this is the spot. Staff were excellent in every way. We got the delux suite and man talk about going back in time. Wooden sash windows coving original and four poster bed with carved poles. Tv didnt have many stations as i watch the news channels and discovery , but i wasnt there for tv. Were definately going back as these hotels are hard to find. Check out the stained glass throughout the hotel as it tells a story. I figured it out but it took a while. History. clue J Rochfort
Nice hotel lovely staff no complaints at all about stay
We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Abbey. Room was clean and staff very friendly. There was a quiet and calm atmosphere which suited us for a relaxing break. Food was also nice, but we felt the breakfast could have been hotter. Overall though, we had a lovely break and would definitely visit again.
Very pleasant stay. Friendly and efficient staff. Old fashioned decor but charming.
Stayed here with the kids for one night. Room was ok, could do with being redecorated. The food was really excellent, the pool was too. Would recommend this hotel and will definitely be back.
Lovely stay. Great food and friendly staff. Pool clean and big.
This was my second stay at the Abbey Hotel and it wont be my last. The reception staff are very welcoming and the hotel rooms are comfortable and relaxing. The food is great everyone is so nice and friendly. Great facilities and It is a walking distance to the town. Well done, keep up the standard. I'll be back! Tina from Limerick
I spent a fantastic 3 day mid-term break at the Abbey Hotel. I booked a large family room which was spacious enough for Mum, two boys and Granny. The food was very good, great selection at the buffet breakfast, carvery available at lunchtime and bar food or restaurant menus at night. Kids' club was run each evening with a dinner option available, huge thanks to Emer who the kds loved. The only let down is the very dim lighting in the bedrooms and the lack of family changing facilities for the lovely pool, it doesn't feel quite right bringing boys into the ladies' changing room. But overall, a lovely hotel with friendly staff in a nice quiet spot.
fantastic hotel. front of house staff were always very very nice and pleasant. beautiful pictures on every wall. fantastic food. fantastic leisure center with very helpful staff. great location and beautiful trees all over the grounds couldnt fault the hotel at all.
Lovely old fashioned hotel with superb staff and great food.
Let me start by saying that the staff were absolutely amazing in this hotel. They were so helpful, courteous and accomodating. The hotel although lovely was quite dated. The duvet covers on the bed were grubby and dirty with pen on them. The walls had several black marks and scrapes. The beds weren't the most comfortable either. I feel the fantastic staff make it a 4 star hotel however if it wasn't for the staff I would only give the hotel a 3 star.
Had a lovely break at the abbey hotel. the decor was beautiful and the atmosphere was relaxing the perfect place to relax and unwind my two kids loved it also.
Lovely Hotel had a lovely break, staff were excellent will definelty go back to The Abbey Hotel
I love the Abbey Hotel. It's got old world charm. The staff are friendly. The atmosphere is relaxed. The food is good. The rooms are nice. The pool is lovely. We had a great stay... again. Very reasonable rate too for 2 adults and three children. Perfect for a relaxing, quiet break yet only a short walk from Roscommon town centre.
Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in The Abbey Hotel. Lovely friendly staff but as stated before probably not 4 star. Lovely old fashioned room but bed was small and too hot so not a great nights sleep. Pool area was lovely and everywhere was spotlessly clean. Would definitely return and to visit Artisan Bakery across the road.
Our family of 4 had a good sized family room. The breakfast was very good with good choice. We used the pool and gym. We also had an excellent evening meal. We found the staff very friendly and helpful.
Lovely hotel for a weekend break - great value for money - lovely staff - very nice and comfortable rooms - they certainly don't compromise on the heat - the hotel was extremely warm during a very cold January. Facilities are excellent - we didn't get to test the Leisure Centre - maybe next time.
Old style hotel. Room clean and food good quality. Nice pool area. Staff very plesant. Will return again. V F Dublin.
Lovely hotel, food is excellent, very central spot. Found the hotel at bit noisy at night but apart from that it was lovely.
We stayed in the Abbey Hotel in Roscommon for a two-night break with our daughter. From the start the staff were exceptionally nice, helpful and friendly. The hotel is set in a lovely quiet area of the town, even though it is just a short walk from the town itself. While it says 4 Star, it really was more a shabby chic 4 star as it was a bit worn and dishevelled! However, the bar and lounge was just so comfortable, we spent most of our time just eating, drinking and talking in the lounge. The bar food was so good we didn't get a chance to try the restaurant. The staff were very accommodating and really very helpful without being intrusive. It really is a lovely hotel and we will definitely be back soon!
Great find for the family, will be going back
The hotel was lovely just a bit disappointed that the double room did not have double bed. Also lots of noise through the pipes at night. Other wise very pleasant and breakfast was lovely.
I booked this for my Mum and Dad. When we arrived they were upgraded to the executive suite which was a lovely surprise. The room was very spacious and Dad said 'you could have fitted 4 in the bed'!!! It was comfortable and clean. The breakfast in the morning was lovely too. Staff were friendly and approachable I'm sure they would definitely stay here again. The deal with Lidl was great as I believe booking through the hotel is a little dearer. All in all a great stay and highly recommended.
Excellent swimming pool which my son and myself used twice. The staff were friendly and the hotel is a good base to explore the surrounding areas. But we had two issues, when we went to get our fry at breakfast the sausages looked like they spent the weekend in the Arigna mines......they were black and burnt to a crisp (also no beans on display...you shouldn't have to ask). Also the beds were too hard unless you needed extreme support for your spine.....not a great nights sleep. This hotel should be a 3 Star not a 4 star.
Stayed in the Abbey last week , not what I expected , rooms were very small very basic hotel , I will not be returning.
We found the Abbey Hotel a great Hotel. It has excellent facilities and is set in beautiful surroundings. We found the staff very helpful and friendly, and the breakfast we received on both mornings of our stay was excellent. We hope to return to the Abbey Hotel. Star rating 4 Thank you
I spent 1 night with my husband and my son and we had a great time. All the staff was very friendly, the swimming pool was great and we enjoyed the food too. Lovely hotel with a lot of character.
friendly helpful comfortable. one thing that I feel sends the quality tumbling downwards is the tannoi announcements of evening events. disrupts the peace of a nice meal, conversation etc.awful!
lovely hotel great ,staff,will go again
best hotel i have ever stayed in while being on holidays in ireland. Would recommend 100% !!!!!!!!!!!!
Lovely Hotel. well recommended. Staff very friendly.would stay here again.
Family of four had a wonderful stay in this beautiful hotel. The staff were exremely friendly and we will definitely return!
This Hotel was excellent, the rooms were fabulous, the leisure centre ideal and the bar menu and food both for dinner and for breakfast was superb. The staff were helpful and very friendly and our stay was one that we will definitely repeat. I would definitely highly recommend this hotel. Ian
My friend and I recently booked this hotel last minute as we needed a break away from the city and things could not have worked out better! For people that need a stress free no fuss weekend then the abbey hotel is ideal! We got the train from Dublin and were plesently surprised when we got off at the train station to find the hotel was a mere stones throw away. Ideal if your not driving! When we arrived we were greeted warmly by the friendly and efficent staff. Our room was lovely all though I found the telly to be rather out dated.. our remote didn't work properly but we were able to access more stations by using the controls on the actualy telly! The room had all the necessities one would need although I would highly recomend bringing your own hair dryer as the one in the bathroom would take any one hours to dry their hair( the one's in the leisure center are marginaly better). The leisure center has what you'd expect, pool sauna,steam room, plunge pool gym etc and was very quite when we went down each day which we loved! Make sure you have a swiming hat with you as they are strict on not letting people in without them, although they sell them at the reception if you forget your's. We got the deal via lidl breaks.ie(140e for the two of us for 2 nights) which included breakfast..which no one could fault!Tthey had everything any one could need to start off the day..no shortage of food and you could eat at ease which was a great way to start the day! On the 2nd night we had our meal in the actual hotel and I'm only sorry that we didn't try it out there on the first night! The meal was amazing and well priced! we both had steak which came with everything you can think of and had us practically bursting at the seams..we didn't dare try desert for fear of totally over doing it but admired the creations that others around us were receiving! The staff were very helpful and helped us map out the day around us giving us suggestions about where to go and making sure to get us a well priced taxi as we did not have a car with us. I also liked the fact that you could have a DVD player (free of charge) upon request just in case the night time telly bored you.. we were well prepared and brought a selection of DVDs with us something I recommend you do as they only have a small selection of children's one's available. We were both very happy with this weekend away in this hotel and would highly recommend it whether you need a break on your own or just a peaceful get away with a friend or your partner.
We had a fantastic 2 night break in the Abbey hotel. rooms warm, well furnished, beautiful food and all staff were amazing. Very helpful, professional & welcoming. Would definately go back. 4 star
Had a pleasant stay,staff were very friendly and leisure centre facilities were excellent.
the picture they have of the front of the hotel looks like a castle which is lovely and i thought the rest of the building would look like this to but it doesnt it is very deceiving as there is an extenion on the side that are the rooms and it looks out of place as we were driving up to it. its a lovely hotel ,rooms are lovely and clean, pool area is a bit plain and it is not for children
The hotel is lovely, the room was grand and the pool,sauna etc were excellent. There was no information in the hotel itself as regards things to do and see in Roscommon.
We really enjoyed our stay in the Abbey Hotel. The room was very comfortable and very spacious with lovely facilities. The dining area was bright and welcoming. The selection offered and quality of the breakfast was excellent. The staff across all areas were friendly and very helpful. The Hotel surroundings were very picturesque we couldn't believe this beauty could exist and still be located close to the town. Roscommon town itself was a pleasant surprise with lots of lovely shops and places to eat. Excellent value for money Thank You Lidl, long may it last!!
Myself, my husband and 2 boys booked in to this hotel over the Easter ( 2011) and we had a really lovely stay. The hotel is very family friendly and our family room was good and spacious and clean. The food in the restaurant was very good - however, I do think that the hotel need to look at their food pricing as it would be good to see a good value Table De Hote menu. I dropped a star from the rating as the leisure centre needs an injection of cash and also, I think the hotel is really a good 3 star hotel as opposed to a 4 star hotel. All in all - a calm relaxing break and we would return.,
Great Value for money, pool area and facilities were great, the rooms were nice and spacious, food was okay and the service was okay.
The Abbey Hotel is one of the best hotels that We have recently stayed in. The hotel rooms are spacious and immaculate. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant was excellent. The leisure centre was well equiped and clean. We will definately be returning for a longer stay in the near future.
Really enjoyed our stay,very relaxed atmosphere , staff friendly,food good. Only complaint never slept a wink all night in room 50 at end of corridor owing to yellow generator running all night outside making a very loud noise. Came across Lidl breaks quite by chance.Am very glad I did, great value etc.
+Very quiet location close to town centre. +Very majestic Castle style building. +Breakfast very good. +Bar area ane resturaunt were nice -Rooms need refurbishing - very dark and old. -Room was cold - heating was not on and there was a plug in heater in the room. I have not seen this in a 4 Star hotel before. -Overall based on our experience I would say this is more a 3 Star than a 4 Star
