“Sure, t'was grand”
Reviewed 4 October 2011

Hi, I stayed here with a group for a stag party and I found this hotel to be just about what you would expect from a three star hotel. The rooms were comfortable. The showers were clean. The hotel is a bit dated. The bar leaves a lot to be desired. Its extremely quiet, no atmosphere. Nice food though. Its centrally located which was a big plus. Overall, I would recommend this hotel for a stag, but not necessarily for a delux weekend away for a couple.

We were satisfied with the size and cleanliness of the room, also a very good location. Ate in the bar, but the food was only fair, and service was a bit slow.

Stayed at this great hotel mid week. Lovely to be greeted by welcoming Irish staff. Pleasantly surprised by the comfortable spacious room. Enjoyed a freshly prepared evening meal in the restaurant. No problem getting hotel parking. Excellent value for money. Definitely will be back again.

Stayed here recently with my family. Delighted with the friendly and helpful staff and clean rooms. Bar food was lovely. Great location in the centre of the town opposite the Quayside Shopping Centre. Will return again.

Stayed in this hotel for a hen weekend. Arrive in the room and I opened the window- the curtain fell down and the radiator fell off the wall! Beds were comfy and room was also quite clean.
The night porter Michael was so friendly and helpful on the Friday night however on the Saturday night there was a different night porter( foreign man with a moustache) who would not allow us a residents bar or even a drink for that matter and was very rude.

Breakfast was fine nothing extra ordinary! On a whole would have to say hotel is fine for a hen/ stag do but would defo not return for anything else.

The hotel is easily accessed from the M4 via Custom House quay, and is within 200 metres/yards of the centre of town. We found the staff friendly and the room was nice (the Oyster Suite), very spacious, and even had a view of Ben Bulben mountain.
The evening meal was adequate but not much to write home about. Breakfast was good. Apart from one night when some youngsters made a noise outside the hotel, we found it very quiet. Hotel car park always full, but there is one beside the river (100 metres away) which was not very expensive and you can feed the meter the night before.

I stayed one night in the Sligo City Hotel on business. I had booked this hotel on the basis that it had "secure free parking" as quoted on their website. However, on reaching the hotel I was told their small carpark was full and there was nothing they could do for me. When I had tried to access the carpark the receptionist would not open the gate and only did so after asking her three times could I see if there was an available space for my car.

The receptionist was extremely rude to me when I said I was not happy that I had nowhere to park my car even though it said the hotel had free parking when I booked it on their website. She spoke to me in a very rude and patronising way and was completely uninterested and unsympathetic.

She was also very rude to other customers who were waiting to speak to her about the carpark. One older lady was unable to get her car out of the tight carpark space and the receptionist said she was a fire hazard and she would have to leave her keys with her and get someone to move it. The receptionist then turned to her colleague and asked could she help deal with some of these "difficult customers".

I went to find a parking space for my car later on and the manager of the Glasshouse Hotel which is located across the road from the Sligo City Hotel said I could park in their carpark for free. Perhaps the staff of the Sligo City Hotel could learn something about customer service from the staff of the Glasshouse Hotel!

I would not recommend this hotel on the basis that I was treated so badly by its staff.
