A modern hotel in an impressive building right in the centre of Sligo town. We really enjoyed our stay here but our overall impression was of slight oddness. Firstly, the design of the building sticks out in what is essentially quite a traditional Irish market town. The strange colour scheme and the frankly naff art prints of 'hip' young people in heels and shades give you the impression that it was designed by someone who had read about the concept of the 'designer hotel' but had never actually stayed in one and had therefore decided to base the look of the place on a provincial nightclub circa 1994. The strangeness of the place was only compounded by the fact that they were obviously trying to drum up business through some kind of cheap deal so the place was 70% full of pensioners.
The rooms themselves were clean and comfortable and I grew to quite like the garish lime green by the end of the stay. The staff were also all very pleasant and helpful . We had booked three nights over the phone at roomrate only but on arriving we were told by the check-in staff that there was a three for two deal so we ended up paying less than we had anticipated with breakfast included which was a nice touch. The free parking is also good and all-in-all this is an ideal base for exploring Sligo and if you go with it, the slightly surreal atmosphere is rather charming after a couple of pints of Guinness.
