My wife and I have just returned from a rather wonderful break here. The staff were friendly and helpful,our room was luxurious and the breakfast great.It is also pleasant to see the owner take such an active role in running the hotel. Can't wait to return,especially if there is more first class entrainment in the evening.

I tend to travel on business a fair bit and on those occasions the budget is basically unlimited - 5 star and Swiss 5 star aren't unusual. The downside of this is that I can become a bit used to this level of luxury - which in reality isn't necessary. However if I am travelling personally within Ireland and won't... More

I don't enjoy writing a bad hotel review because it ends up reflecting badly on a great many hard-working people who were definitely NOT responsible for their hotel's failure. A classic example of this came last Friday night at the Best Western in Sligo. This was our last stop before heading home from a really wonderful break in Connemara. Our... More

Avoid the rooms beside the lift , ideally it should be a broom cupboard, no running hot water in the shower in morning, is the reason I will not be back. Over priced for the quality. Food was excellent in the bar.
