OK, there a mix reviews for this hotel, but I will do my best to give you another perspective of the Glass House. It is rated a 4 Star but if you have done any travelling it lacks the polish and attention to detail of a true 4 star. It is a busy hotel as many conferences and meetings are...

Dear Reviewer Thank you for your very detailed review of The Glasshouse, overall it seems that you enjoyed your stay with us. I am surprised to hear you describe our bedrooms as small as none of the rooms in the hotel would be classified as this, of course the riverview rooms are more in demand as the views are spectacular....

Only stayed for one night in May 2015 but would certainly choose to stay at this hotel again. Room was well sized and spotlessly clean, the interior of the hotel was brightly decorated. Didnt have any meals during my stay but the menu looked good and reasonably priced, the restaurant looked busy when walking past. Hotel is in an excellent...

Just spent the weekend at the Glasshouse. Loved it! Brilliant location right in the centre of Sligo. Had a meal on Saturday night which was delicious. All the staff were very helpful. If your staying pay the little bit extra for a river view room. It's well worth it.

I wouldn't usually write a bad review about a hotel, but I'm making an exception about The Glasshouse. The meal was awful, there was more fat on the meat than there was meat. You'll wait an age for the elevator to arrive. The heating in the room was noisy enough to wake me up on several occasions during the night....

Paid extra to have a river view, but there were a high ledge outside the window obstructing the view. So it was not possible to see the river at all... The only thing that was possible to see was the rooftops from the houses on the other side.
