“A very good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

This hotel is in a lovely spot in a central location in Sligo.
The hotel is decorated in fun funky colours.
The room was large with a good view of the river.
The room was very clean (apart from a few marks on the carpet) with all the normal accessories.
The wi-fi (accessed through the television) was excellent.
Breakfast is help yourself buffet affair.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
We enjoyed ourselves in this hotel.

Traveling through Ireland, we needed to stop for the day, and found ourselves in Sligo. We stopped at the Glasshouse. We were given a room on the 6th floor, with private balcony. It was a great view. As the name implies, the rooms are almost all windows...great lighting and view. The accommodations are modern and luxurious. The design in the lobby is quirky, ultra modern. Food for breakfast was good for buffet. Had nice seating beside the quay. A nice stop for the night!

Right in the centre of Sligo town, near restaurants, shops and pubs. Clean, modern decor, comfortable bed, average size room and en suite; but nothing special. The main hotel entrance is off a side street, with a tiny reception area and lobby. Not really a place where you'll want to hang about and read the paper. But it doesn't matter as there are lots of lovely places nearby. Lovely views over the river, especially at night.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the river

Stayed here for christmas party and was charged over double the price for room than was agreed. Got money back after a lot of questioning. Key cards had to be reset three times in one day. Contacted hotel afterwards and got an apology. Have stayed here before with no problems but on this occasion A disappointing stay overall in this hotel.

It is an absolute pleasure to be staying at this hotel. . In fact I'm writing this review from the comfort of room 103! The staff are simply fantastic, nothing is too much trouble. Rooms are beautifully decorated; food is excellent. All in all this is what all hotels should aspire to. I will definitely be back at the earliest opportunity.

Having stayed in the majority of hotels in Sligo (in laws live there!) we had yet to stay in the visually striking Glasshouse - arrived there in the afternoon to be greeted by a lovely receptionist - we had booked a standard double
room - nothing standard about it - room was very modern and colourful but actually worked really well & the bed was super king size and so comfy!!lovely big bathroom with fluffy bathrobes!had breakfast in the hotel - dining room overlooks the garavogue and buffet was top notch - staff very friendly and attentive
without being in your face!!had dinner on one night which was very tasty and the hotel bar very relaxing!such a central location and parking included - couldn't recommend highly enough - will definitely stay here again!

Stayed in the Glasshouse from Sunday to Tuesday on a short stay in Sligo. Checking in was swift and pleasant with friendly staff on the reception. We booked through a booking agency so got a good deal on the room compared with going with booking it direct with the hotel.
The hotel is bright and styled on a funky modern theme with vivid colours and trendy décor. Our room was a river side view with a small balcony which was well laid out with good facilities including bath robes and slippers which was a nice touch.
The TV had a internet facility which was handy if you didn't have a laptop with you as in our case but also wifi connection for those who did. We didn't have breakfast but did eat in the bar on one evening and the food was good and plentiful. The bar man was very attentive and friendly and advised us on some of the local bars which would be worth a visit.

Location is perfect for the town so you can park your car in the free underground car park and explore Sligo town at your leisure.

We would certainly stay here if in Sligo Town again.
