“Modern hotel bang in the middle of Sligo”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

Stayed with family for two nights in a nice room overlooking the Garavogue river. Decor is bright, clean and modern. It is the most central location in the town (not that Sligo is very big) and very convenient for all bars and restaurants. The breakfast was first rate and the bar is inviting for lunch or an evening drink. There's an attached underground garage (included in the room rate) which is a bit tight to navigate, but it works. I can't remember exactly what we paid but I felt we got good value for money. It is definitely an asset to the town.

May wife and I have nothing but praise for this lovely central Sligo Town hotel, in terms of our recent trip. Great room with a wonderful view - see the silver swans - excellent breakfast, efficient service, everything we could possibly want so - highly recommended. But is it churlish to mention an earlier incident? By mistake I left a computer lead in the room after checking out. This was about 18 months ago. I telephone the hotel about an hour after we'd set off but they refused to do anything about it. "Please just check if it's still in the room", I beggfed, "and if it's there please post it to me and I'll pay the costs". Stubborn - even rude - refusal. Vewry inconvenient as I couldn't buy a replacement until we reached Limerick three days later (we were staying in the Burren. But that was then - and all is forgotten if not quite forgiven. We unreservedly recommend The Glasshouse in Sligo.

Room Tip: Don't leave anything behind after checking out.

We were headed to Sligo for a concert and needed a place to stay. We were unsure of the location of the venue's location with respect to The Glasshouse Hotel...it turned out perfect. The Glasshouse is ultra modern in decoration and colors. There is on-site parking too. Our room was right on the river with a very comfy king sized bed and super pillows. It was almost like our own bed. The windows opened and so we had plenty of fresh air. The room was very, very clean and comfortable.
Slight snag in using the wi-fi in the bar as our iPad wasn't able to get service. The manager said that was a problem for them.
One suggestion for the hotel though is with the name Glasshouse. I would take it to mean the windows should be clean from the rooms too!

Stayed in this hotel for a family gathering. It was PERFECT! The rooms are so spacious, clean, very bright and airy. Everything was as advertised. The shower and huge tub were a treat with a jet shower feature installed. There was a great selection for breakfast and was presented in a very appealing fashion. The town of Sligo is right on the doorstep and there are lovely views from the room. We did not get a chance to eat in the hotel but the rest of the group had a very bad experience in the restaurant (hence eating out on the 2nd night), by the sounds of the other reviews they may have just had a bad night? Free car parking in a secure underground carpark. Check-in and out was very efficient. Overall I really enjoyed my stay.

Stayed here over Easter for two nights great location in centre of Sligo. I booked a twin by mistake but the front desk were more than happy to sort out my mistake n gave me a double. Food in main bar was great and very reasonable price wise would defiantly head back. The rooms were fantastic massive really well equipped wifi in the rooms would been a nice touch as using data whilst roaming is very dear and we had to go down to the bar to get emails. Would have been a 5 star only my girlfriend slipped on the step going out onto the balcony and I've emailed the hotel twice now but they never bothered to get back to me.

A nice hotel with friendly, helpful staff in a convenient location (a walk to the city centre took about 1/2 minutes). The room was clean and had been recently decorated. The bridge and road at the front of the hotel can be busy at night so if you're the kind of person who would be bothered by the noise of cars and people passing by then you might want to request a room away from the road. Much better than I was expecting considering how cheap it is to stay.

A great spot right in town. Lovely bar overlooking the river with swans swimming. Rooms very modern - they call them funky and chic! Very clean. Very helpful front desk. Wifi in bar area only. Complimentary parking at the lot below the hotel. Good value for the money.
