My husband and I stayed for just one night and my first impression was "OH it is drab" However we went to our room and it was newly refurbished and immaculately clean. Yes it was old fashioned but I realised this gave it great character. It would be lovely to know you were going to a Hotel that is not modernised and relax and enjoy it.
We had Bar lunch with my sister in law and WOW the staff looked after us just like I remember staff that were in the Gresham Hotel when I was a child. They treated us like guests in their home and couldn't do enough for us
We had dinner in the Bar and the fish was so fresh and lovely.
I will go again and I will ask for room 304
Next morning I went to the pool as I am post hip replacement and need to do exercises and the lady in charge asked me if it would help to have a belt like support to help me!
We had stayed in the Glasshouse the last time we were in Sligo and I gave it a good review but I will go back to this unusual gem.
It is right beside the train station/bus station so very well located
