I have stayed at this hotel before for a business conference but it is a very different but good experience on a bank holiday weekend.
We stayed in this hotel for St Patricks Weekend 2012 so a very busy period for the hotel. Despite that we had a fabulous time with our 2 year old. The staff are very warm and friendly and no request is a problem to them. We got a good deal for 3 nights B&B with dinner on one of the nights in the hotel.
Our room was a good size with a double and single bed (perfect for our toddler) and very well maintained. There was a large flat screen tv and a DVD player which is handy when you have children. We had brought DVD's with us but I know reception also had a selection on loan.
We used the pool everyday and it has a jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. The pool was very busy with Children but that is to be expected on a bank holiday weekend... There was an hour of childrens activities in the pool with a large float for them to clamber on and this was well monitored by pool staff both in and out of the water. But it was removed after the hour so that others could also enjoy full use of the pool and the times for this were well advertised. The pool was nice, the baby area cordoned off from the rest of the pool looked a little dirty, but think this was actually rust from some of the pool fittings. There is also a gym and tennis courts but we never used these facilities. The changing rooms were clean and well equipped with plenty of hair dryers and towels and swimming caps were available from the pool staff on entry.
We had dinner two nights in the hotel, the first night in the Hazelwood restaurant and the second night in the bar. The menu in the restaurant was nto bad although as a vegetarian I didn't find anything to my taste, but this was no problem as the waiter gave me alternative options. The meal was really nice and the staff helped to make the evening very relaxed. There was a childrens menu available and we did purchase off this, however, it was a little pricey considering we were purchasing for a 2 year old who eats very little - it would have been good if a baby bowl had been available like offered in many other restaurants. She received a huge portion and dessert but definitely geared towards an older child.
The food from the bar on the second night was also pretty good, in saying that my husband didn't really like his sirloin steak as it was quite tough, but he ate it anyway!!
Breakfast each morning was buffet style both hot and cold with something to suit everyone and the food was really good. There were additional options on the menu including vegetarian options which was great for me when I had a hot breakfast.
Overall we had a very good experience here and would definitely return. Sligo is a lovely location and is also only a short day trip to Donegal.
