Sligo Southern Hotel
Ranked #8 of 8 Hotels in Sligo
Reviewed 2 July 2014

The location of this hotel is perfect for a short stroll to the bars and restaurants of Sligo town. It's also only 5-10 mins drive to the beautiful beaches at Strandhill and Rosse Point. The hotel itself seems to have had some modernisation downstairs in reception and the bar but the bedrooms are somewhat drab and dated. They were however clean and the beds we're comfy. The showers were old but worked perfectly well. I guess if you want a boutique style, the this is not for you. If you want comfort, quiet and a good location, it is perfect. Unfortunately we were locked out of our original room twice and a staff member had to climb through the window to release the door! The staff however we're helpful, dealt with the issue immediately and we're always very polite and accommodating.

Older style hotel but the rooms need updating - badly.
Location of the hotel was good, a short walk into the centre of town, but nothing to complain about.
Despite the rooms being old, they were tidy and comfortable, but having said that, the room I was allocated had a neon sign near the window, so the light that came into the room was somewhat annoying. Didn't complain due to it being only a 1 night stay.
The restaurant location and décor was unusual, but the food was fine.
Overall, was adequate for a 1 night stay.

Dear RedDevil1978,

Thank you for taking the time to offer your feedback on the BEST WESTERN Sligo Southern Hotel & Leisure Centre. Our rooms are constantly being revamped and we try and keep them in line with the old world feel of the hotel, the neon sign is turned off at night, and if you had let us know we would have turned it off on request.

We look forward to welcoming you back when your next in this part of the world

Kindest regards

A nice big hotel - not very personal - ok service. The food served in the bar was ok, and no more. The room was very nice and clean. Acces to the town-center a little long. Next time I would choose an accomodation closer to citycenter.

Room Tip: Be sure to get a room not facing the street. (they an be a bit noisy)

Dear Ole H,

We appreciate your feedback and are disappointed that you felt we are a distance from the town centre, as its only a 5 minute walk to Sligo's main street.

We thank you for taking the time to share your comments and have discussed same with our team

We look forward to meeting you again when you are next in the North West of Ireland

Kindest regards

We stayed for two days and in terms of location, it was great. Everything wasin walking distance, especially an excellent pub, Donaghy's. The rooms are nicely sized with a large bathroom. Our toilet drained slowly and was difficult to flush. I think if I had pushed it, we would have been offered a different room which would have been fine. The elevator had strange pink lighting which was kind of sickening. It was the only hotel we stayed in that had its own parking so it was nice to avoid parking garage charges.

We stayed for 3 days and were met by a very helpful member of staff who gave us some good info on places to see while we were in Sligo. All of this info proved to be very helpful with some brilliant views in all the places we went to. We had booked B&B and evening meal which was delicious. The breakfast had all the usual to suit all tastes and there was plenty of everything on offer. The meal was also good with about five choices to choose from. The staff all round are friendly and very helpful. The bar is huge with some good seating & well placed to give that private feeling. The lounge area could seat about 100 and all in good comfortable seats. Bar food is also very good, service if fast & clean. We used the pool & though it is small it was impeccably clean. Lots of hot water for showers & the bedrooms were tidy, maybe a little basic & if I were to find a fault anywhere during out stay it would be that there could have been some more drawer space in the rooms. A small complaint I know but that is all I could say about it. Would I go back again ? most definitely.

went here for a solo relaxing break
staff were very friendly and helpful
had booked a room at front as asthmatic and fresh air very important..
when i arrived i had been given a room looking onto a courtyard with poor air quality
this was handled very well and i was immediately given a room facing onto the front with a lovely fresh feeling.
from that moment on i relaxed.
a lovely hotel to relax and the pool was lovely/
great location to walk into the town.
bringing my husband back in July and as a treat have booked a luxury room. .
