My husband and I booked this hotel only because we couldnt get a last-minute reservation in the Glasshouse Hotel nextdoor. Parking is to the rear of the building and is very limited. We just got the last space. Check-in was friendly and efficient. Our room was nearby, but on entering same, we were blown away by the smell of stale ciggerette smoke in our non-smoking room. I complained for the first time in all the hotels we've ever been in and left the key with the receptionist. When I returned four hours later, the room window had been opened! We both have a sense of humour, so needless to say, we just laughed. The room still smelled strongly of smoke and if it had been a longer stay, we would certainly have asked for another room. The lighting in the room was less than adequate to the say the least. My husband couldnt see to shave the following morning. It didnt help that the light over the bathroom mirror didnt work. I dont open my own front door without my make-up, so you can imagine the fun I had the following morning, trying to remember where all the features on my face were! The tv was old-style with a hand-full of stations only. The stadard lamp in the room did not work either. This was a bummer, because I couldnt see clearly enough to read. The hotel was quiet, but we could hear the guy in the next room snoring like a tractor! Breakfast was adequate but not very exciting and included a hot selection. Overall, the only thing going for this hotel is its location bang in the city centre. It is an old hotel that requires serious updating and refurbishment. My advice to anyone wanting to stay in Sligo - stay in the Glasshouse.
