Decided to stay in Sligo Town following a night out and picked the Glasshouse as a treat as I live outside Sligo and always wanted to see what the rooms were like and was convenient for me for work the next day (as didn't want to drive morning after night before).
As I am from Sligo I never stay in town, but if I was to be a critical tourist from outside town, I wouldn't be impressed with the car park entrance to the hotel. From the car park you walk into a bleak, grey building until you enter another room with a pop up banner and a bit of a tree.
Anyways check in was quick and efficient. We checked in at approx 6.30pm. Very impressed by the rooms! Lovely, bright, clean, airy...mod cons like irons, kettle, tv and all the bits that are expected. We were attending a concert in town at 8pm so before we left the room we filled out our room service leaflet (again a treat as never get room service anywhere and it would mean longer in bed before work!).
After the concert and night out, we returned to our room at approx 3am. Our room service sign was still on the door but it said to leave out before 4am so passed no heed as didn't think night porter was on duty yet. Went to bed and fell asleep...woke for work and no sign of breakfast. Had it ordered to arrive between 8.30am and 9am and by 9.10am couldn't wait any longer and was rushing off to work.
I know it wasn't the hotel's fault I didn't have time to go down for breakfast - but the one time I went with room service I presumed it was coming to the room and didn't allow for any contingency's. The sign was still on the door when I left for work at 9.20am - no one collected it. As I had to pay for the room at check in, it meant my breakfast was paid for even though I didn't eat it (if I had time would have gone down to breakfast buffet but didn't). My boyfriend did stay and eat as he wasn't in a hurry. He said breakfast buffet was just okay anyways and that I didn't miss much. He also complained on check out about the room service but all they said was 'sorry.' Their loss I guess as we were willing to pay the €10 extra for the luxury over Christmas.
Apart from the breakfast saga, hotel was lovely. Would use it again if opportunity arose.
