Was a bit anxious about this booking because of all the negative reviews but we were happy enough with the quality and cleanliness of the apartment. We had a 2 bedroomed one so there was plenty of space. It is very tired around the edges and could do with a proper deep clean but, given the price per night, we... More

We spent almost an hour trying to figure out where this place was. Called a number and they told us we were down the hill from them. Signed into our rooms that had very basic amenities. No wifi, kitchen cooker was very old. It was obvious it was used for student housing as well. If your planning on going to... More

My husband and I stayed here at the begging if Sept as we were going to a party in Sligo town. We searched a few hotels and they were very over priced! But when we found this place it was great value and it was the same as a hotel suite. It had a spacious bedroom and walk in wardrobe,... More

Damp rooms, dirty apartments, no wifi access, leather couches ripped, corridors with massive patches where there is no paint, pieces taken out of walls. Nobody manning the desk. Albanne Properties who run the place do not answer their phones often. I had International Salsa instructors arriving for an event in the Clarion Hotel which was booked for 2 nights, hence... More

Our special weekend treat for family ruined by very filthy accommodation. We were disappointed at absolutely low standard of hygiene Carpets filthy Hair in bath Filthy kettle that was never replaced Even after changing apartments still not happy! High price for disappointment and deceived into idea that leisure facilities included in price!

We stayed here for a hen party, was grand rooms were spacious and clean but premises are really far out of town.. so we spent a fortune on taxis etc. The heating system is mad, either too hot or too cold.. no near by shop for snacks etc or no vending machines. I personally wouldn't stay again but a few... More

We stayed mid week, from Sunday night to Thursday night. We had read many reviews and we were expecting the worst. What I can say is it wasn't the worst. When we arrived we found the lift out of order and it was a Sunday so it wouldn't be looked at until the Monday. I had requested a top floor... More

No wifi and we were told that we could go to the Clarion hotel to access wifi. We had originally booked a suite but upon arriving we were split into different rooms. This accommodation only takes cash - which is ridiculous. The whole experience was not satisfactory considering the amount of money that we paid. The whole place could do... More

Used the Apartments as an overnight stop en-route to Galway. The suites are a bit of a surprise, resembling what they presumably used to be, which is a staff accommodation block. However its all very efficient, the rooms are large (ours included a lounge and kitchen area) and very clean.Would make a very good base for exploring Sligo and it's... More

We had the misfortune if staying here in March. We searched for hotels for 4 nights in Sligo and as this came up we assumed that it would be a nice clean place to stay. However this is NOT a hotel, but a place that is used for short term let's to students and migrant workers. The room was fithy... More
