This hotel was very nice. Had a great vibe about it. The Christmas decorations and the cozy fireplace all add to our first winter Christmas experience. As Sligo was very quite this time of year we spent a lot of time around the fireplace. Was great to slow down during our amazing European holiday. Thank you for the nice stay.

Dear fmenterprises, We are delighted you enjoyed our open fires and the festive atmosphere in our large lobbies with their large armchairs and relaxing sofas and hoped you got a chance to taste some of our gourmet coffees beside the fireside. We look forward to welcoming you back when you are next in the North West of Ireland. Kindest regards... More

This hotel needs some work. Old is fine, but updates should occur. Small beds compared to other European hotels I have stayed in. Toilet continued to run and the bathroom was dirty. Probably would not stay here again.

Dear Tim H, Thank you for your feedback, and are disappointed that you found our beds to be small, we get a large number of excellent reviews on our beds which are sourced nationally.

I would say this was the one hotel that would have been at the bottom of our list to stay at again. I was really surprised to still see a room key with an actual key and chain. The hotel is not known as a best western it's rather known as Sligo.

Dear WB1984, As our hotel was originally built in 1928, we have kept the old world charm including door keys, yet with the best of modern comforts. I am unsure as to what you mean with regard to the hotel known as Sligo We welcome all feedback and thank you for taking the time to share your comments Kindest regards... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night back in late June 2004. Sligo was our first stop in our 2 week vacation in Ireland. The hotel is right in town and we very much enjoyed the quick walk into the heart of the city. The room was a bit small but still just fine for our needs. Because... More

We stayed here last weekend for the Sligo live festival for two nights. I think this is probably a case of a well-run hotel with good staff that just doesn't have the money required to give it the facelift it badly needs. The staff were excellent, we asked about restaurants and bars and were given a map and a thorough... More

Staff very friendly, rooms comfortable, perfect location for all of Sligo. Handy to get to as just off main Donegal to Dublin road. Town very close, only 5 minute walk to heart of Sligo which is a great town with a very friendly and lively buzz.

Stayed here with some members of my family. We stayed on floor 3 and our rooms were nicely decorated and the beds were very comfortable. The lobby is very comfortable and relaxing.

Dear Woza68, Thank you for taking the time to offer your feedback, if you notified a member of staff about the radiators we would have rectified it immediately, as you can understand there can be times when an air lock occurs.

Clearly an old hotel that looks as though it was decorated as a bordello - red and pink carpeting, pink and purple wallpaper, etc. Ugh. Good points: it couldn't be closer to the train station, and the front desk staff were friendly. However, plumbing was noisy, wifi did not work reliably, room did not have a chest of drawers -...
