We stayed for a week in an un-refurbished room at the end of an annexe wing. Despite being told there wasn't a view, we could see mountains over the rooftops of the houses beyond the gardens outside our window where rabbits hopped about. It was about as far from reception as you can get, very quiet, where the only noise was from the crows in the morning outside.
We booked a room-only deal through Olotels which was considerably cheaper than the hotel's website but we didn't feel as if we were treated any differently because of this. Check-in on a busy Saturday night was professional and courteous, a very good first impression. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a large comfy bed and bright bathroom. Kettle and trouser press but no fridge. There are communal areas on each floor with sofas and shelves of books and magazines.
The leisure centre was really very good and the staff there are to be commended for their friendly and professional approach. Bring a swim hat or buy one there for €2. The 16-metre swimming pool was rarely busy, the sauna and steam-room well maintained and hot enough with a great ice-cold plunge pool to cool off in.
The hotel is a good mile or 20-minute walk uphill from the city centre (less than a 5-minute walk to Markievicz Park). There are buses approximately once every 50 minutes from the petrol station opposite the hotel between 8.46 and 18.11 but mostly we walked into town. Sligo is a fantastic place and we had a lot of great evenings out but do be aware that things often don't get going until after 10pm. If we'd realised this before we booked we might have given more priority to a hotel with a central location. The hotel's bar does stay open til 3am though when there's demand. Good experience, I expect we'll stay here again.
