Reviewed 7 December 2017

This is a very nice hotel and good value for money. Reception was curtious and friendly. Room / Suite was huge and very comfortable overlooking the river. We had bar food which was quite enjoyable and good value. Only downside was the night barman who, with his shirt hanging out looking totally unprofessional, was more interested in talking to the locals than serving people who paid to stay in the hotel.

The staff were very courteous. The hotel is on a quiet enough street and overlooks the river at the rear. Parking is very limited on the property but there is street side parking and also a car-park close by. We only stayed one night but were very happy with the service, the cleanliness and the situation. Breakfast was excellent.

As we go to this hotel for a number of meals ,it was disappointing when we had a bad experience which started with a waitress been smart with her answer, when one of the women just ask would her meal be much longer the waitress answer said it takes time to cook food. then two of us order desert when another staff said they had none left we asked for her recommendation so the cheesecake was suggest but this was uneatable it was tasteless . when we went to pay we were still charged we were not satisfy with this so we both spoke to the manger which she said if we come again she would do something for us.

What a wonderful hotel! Set beside the river, it's at the end of town but only a 5 min walk into the city centre. The staff were extremely helpful and they all had a great sense of humour too! Breakfast was included in my stay and it was perfect. (And it also overlooks the river so not a bad view to relax to!)

My room was large! The window opened to the river below, on the first night and the second night (I wasn't expecting to stay two nights but a storm came in) overlooked the parking lot, but Sligo is so beautiful you don't even notice! It was very comfortable and the bathroom was also a good size.

There's a pub that plays live music attached to the restaurant, and I was worried it would be loud but I didn't hear a thing and I had my doors open as I'm a cheesy storm lover! I would stay here again in a heartbeat, and in saying that I can't wait to go back!

There isn't alot of parking, but 3 min down the road there is a large free parking lot, so wasn't an issue at all. Thank you for a fantastic stay!!

Room Tip: I preferred the river view, as it was so beautiful!
