“Good value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013

I stayed here on a week night while working in Sligo. It was perfect for my needs.
Check in was fast and very friendly. The room was a good size with two single beds and the en suite was a good size too.
Bed was comfortable and I had a good nights sleep but at breakfast the next morning I was talking to another guest who stayed in room number 116 and said he was awake every hour with the noise of a bell in the local church or town hall going off.
In saying that I stayed in the room across from him and did'nt hear anything.
Breakfast was very good and was served very quickly with friendly service.
Hotel is centrally located and good value for money. I would certainly stay there again.

We reserved two rooms, one double and one twin. Both were a good size, beds were nice. Staff was very helpful, changed 2nd room upon request to be beside of each other without problems. Hot shower and plenty of towels, shower gel, shampoo, soap, coffee, tea...

Only stayed for a night but it was perfect for us as it was in the city center, great pubs around. Parking was full so we had to leave the cars in front of the hotel. Good experience all together.

Room Tip: Room 215 has a great view.

Stayed in Sligo City hotel for 1 night as I was meeting friends, as a regular visitor to Sligo I picked this hotel because of its central location. It was not what I expected on walking in the door I was meet with a foul smell of alcohol, I then checked in which was quick but when I headed up to room it was quiet small and had only double single and sofa bed, I had booked a family room which I confirmed on booking was a room with double and 2 singles as it was for 4 adults, I also ran the day before check in to confirm room. This room was tiny with extremely poor lighting really old fashioned in decor etc. We got ready and to head out and when leaving hotel we were meet with a crowd of quiet drunk lads standing outside the door. After a long night out we returned and seen the residents bar was full of loud noise people and the bar didn’t even have any snack peanuts, crisps chocolate or anything. We went up to our room for what we hope would be a good night’s sleep but unfortately a bell from the town hall rung every hour which kept us awake so if staying in this hotel forget about sleep. Check out was quick and fast but won’t be staying here again,

Hay All!

I drove my backside from my beloved CORK up to the Westport Festival at the end of July for live music & camping followed by a tour of the Mayo & Sligo coast for a few days of solo surfing.
I treated myself on my mini-break to a 2 night stay in the Sligo City Hotel (2nd & 3rd of July). It was blissful & well deserved after roughing it for a few days. The staff were so nice & down to earth. Very warming reception & found every one of them chatty, accommodating & helpful.

I used the hotel as a handy base so i could walk the city & have a few jars at night & head off exploring & surfing during the day. Gr8 location.

The room was perfect for me & i enjoyed two really good nights sleep which was needed. Walloped the breakie in the mornings & went off on my adventures for the day. I even treated myself to some fine dining on my last night in their Quays Restaurant. Yum.

Tapping into the wi-fi was very handy for me too so i could catch up on the rest of the world. I had my van with me wit all my gear & was relieved to know that parking was not an issue so i felt secure.

Sligo is a gr8 wee city. Have been up there plenty of times over the years. Stunning scenery & mega surf. Lots to do & see.

I would recommend a kip at the Sligo City Hotel if your planning to spend any time in Sligo.

Im fairly relaxed & it ticked all my boxes for what i expect from a hotel for the money i paid i consider it very good value.

Hope you have a similar experience. Just wish i had someone with me but the staff were good company & tuned into the fact that i was solo. Very impressed.

Found myself in need of a little break away and so went to Sligo for the Yeats connection. Found this hotel online and it looked like a very good position in the town - I wasn't disappointed (it's right on the heart). And with parking (Sligo is pretty bad for parking I found).
It is a modern hotel with a comfy/classic feel and the rooms were of a very good standard. What makes it are the staff. The manager/assistant manager (never did figure it out) called Ann made us feel so welcome. I think she knew every guest! If you were waiting just a minute at the bar for someone else to be served, a staff member would jump on. And I don't think I had put the phone down by the time the ironing board I wanted arrived!
Sligo itself was busier than I expected and not as laid back as I imagined but a few minutes walk and you are away from the hustle and bustle. A short drive and you are in lovely countryside or at a majestic beach. So lovely. And you can immerse yourself in Yeats everywhere. For a fan like me that was a real treat.
I'd recommend Sligo and the City Hotel made it a lovely experience. I'll definitely be back.

Ok to stay in for a quick city break but our room was too small & cramped. The bathroom was fair but the grout around the bath and toilet was dirty and the bath bar to help you in & out of bath/shower was loose on the wall. The bar & eating area was nice and the food ok but wouldn't stay in it again.
