Spent 2 nights in this hotel and had the one bedroom suite (will try and upload pics). The good points for me included the ample parking, bar & restaurant and the onsite spa. The hotel was fairly busy with a conference of sorts (these places always attract those) but service throughout was good and friendly.
The hotel is about 3-5 minutes drive outside of sligo centre (depending on traffic lights) - it's probably a good 30 minute walk but others can confirm! On the road to Rosses point it's easy to find.
The room was large and inlcuded a walk through hallway into a large bedroom, bathroom and large lounge area. I thought it was odd that the bedroom doesn't have an internal door but the lounge does - thought it would be the other way around. Also odd that the TV in the bedroom is massive and the one in the lounge is half the size..? The room was fairly clean and I've included pics of the amenities which included a Nespresso machine - the reason I wouldn't call it 100% clean is that the furniture isn't wearing well - whoever procures furniture for Raddison Blu chains should look at the life-cycle of these things - it may have cost less to initially furnish but it's looking weary and will need replacing soon.
The bed was disappointing - at first sight it looked massive but had a very obvious crease of two beds wedged together down the middle. It was also hard although the pillows were comfortable.
Business travellers are well catered for; wi-fi is free and excellent - one of the fasted and best I've experienced; there are also small touches in the room which show thought - I've never seen so many electrical points and having both 2 and 3-pin sockets is a great idea.
The bathroom is large but strangely towel rails aren't where you need them and the overall design seems odd - massive shower without a fixed head, etc.
Entertainment is a bit poor; about 14 channels mainly terrestrial in nature and a rotating movie each night - although there is a 12 screen cineplex in Sligo town.
Breakfast was well presented and there's loads of choice (although crispy bacon should be that - seemed a bit wet in the server..lol) - I also ate in the bar which has a standard bar menu and was lovely.
The room had 2 main air con units which were welcome as the first night was very stuffy, but I'd echo the frustration of other reviews that the ground floor window openings are too small - it's clearly for security and necessary but does make the air con more needed than it probably should be.
There's an ice machine at the end of the corridor and the overwhelming smell of chlorine from the swimming pool reminds you that the spa is down there too...lol
Overall this is a great place to stay - just maybe needs a bit of a refresh to be considered brilliant.
