“Very Disappointing”
Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

We Stayed here for 2 nights in mid September. We were very disappointed in the bedrooms in this hotel. They were so basic. The food in the restaurant was only o.k. Having been in the Radisson, St Helen's, Booterstown there was no comparison and as dark as I know they are both rated as 4 star hotels.

There was a wedding the day we arrived but it should not take from the guests who are staying there.

Don't think I would stay here a again.

4 of us wandering through Ireland.. Stopped at a B & B across the street and no one home - so went across street to the Radisson Blu. Was a very good choice. Upscale Ireland hotel.
Part of a chain we had seen in other places however had not tried. Walkin rate for 2 rooms with king beds, dinner in the pub, and full breakfast was 105 per room - actually quite good
Nice bath, great shower good bed -
pleasant staff though a bit sparse for service at breakfasta

A little ways out of town and not really near anything, the hotel was very nice with the exception of a few things. The rooms and beds were nice with in-room safe, refrigerator and air-con. Shower over the bath which is quite standard in the U.K. However the T.V was old and the remote control
was faulty. The room was also quite warm.
A thing we found in the U.K. is check the panel heaters to see if they are on as they tend to stay on all the time and not turned off when rooms are cleaned during the day.
The hotel also has a leisure centre which is open to the public. We used the jacuzzi but if you want to swim in the pool, you have to purchase a swimming cap for 3 Euros to swim in - no cap, no swim.

The hotel is in a great location with amazing views of Sligo Bay, Knocknarea and Benbulben towards Yeats Country. It is ideally located near Sligo on one of the peninsulas. Car transport is best for getting around.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. The upgraded room was spacious but the electronic content ie the TV was out dated and the remote did not work. The batteries were replaced quickly. The wifi connection was very weak. The breakfast area was popular and some parents clearly forgot about their location when their children ran free and wild.

Great location and fit for purpose.

The hotel is situated among nice surroundings. On a Bank holiday weekend we arrived in the evening (on Saturday) and unfortunately as the hotel was fully booked , despite our reservation as Business Club members, we were given presumably the staff room which was everything but a nice room, overlooking the smoking area of the bar. After talking to the receptionist and the manager they resolved our problem and we have been moved to a very nice room the next day. I understand that bank holiday weekends are extremely busy but we expected a standard room as in every Radisson we have visited before . Plus point is that the staff and the manager tried to do everything to get us a new room .
Their swimming pool is nice and there is a small jacuzzi as well.
Otherwise, Sligo is beautiful and well worth a visit.

I would agree with title of previous corporate hotel. We were organising a conference and Radisson Sligo submitted the most competitive quote. Lunch was ok on both days. Soup was quite salty and there could have been more sandwiches. Wifi was unreliable on the first day of conference. This is an essential item in the booking of any conference. Can't say that there was anything particularly "wrong" but there is definitely room for improvement.
