Five of us stayed here for two nights over St Patrick's weekend. The hotel is centrally situated with great views over the river and just a short walk to the shops and bars. Relatively newly built with some modern architecture and funky reception furniture.

The service from everyone in the hotel was friendly and efficient - from the breakfast staff that offered to cook our eggs fresh however we wanted them to the excellent barman who gave us hints and tips on where to go hiking on the Saturday. He even popped over to reception and printed off suggested walks from the internet around King's Mountain and Benbillbun - and that at 1.30am in the morning!

One word of warning - beware the weird, spiral-patterned, colourful carpets in the corridors leading to the bedrooms - probably best to keep your eyes shut if you've had a few pints of Guinness!

Great location, great staff, great hotel.

Stay here regularly on business. Location is second to none with free undergound parking. Have stayed in each type of room at one point or another, each is well appointed. Absolutely spotless place and the staff are the friendliest and most helpful that I've even encountered. Breakfast buffet is incredible and bar food is second to none. Haven't yet eaten in 'the kitchen' restaurant but it's won awards. Flat screen internet equipped tv's in all rooms as well as laptop broadband ethernet cable. Back again next week and can't wait!

Had a two night stay here in Feb. What a joy it was to be greeted and looked after by Irish
Front of House staff! . When checking in I asked if by any chance they had a room overlooking the river, and the receptionist checked and said Yes, there was one left! Fine room & comfortable bed. Tea, Coffee & bottled water supplied + usual toiletries. Really blown away with the breakfast. From the freshly cooked Full Irish, to Continental, the choice was great. Spoke to a waiter & barman about Sligo town and what we might see. They were extremely helpful. Enjoyed Soup in the Bar at lunchtime, and were looked after pleasantly and efficiently.
Look forward to return visit.

Room Tip: Try and get room overlooking river.

Stayed on Friday night and i have to say my stay was perfect. The staff were excellent and very helpful. The room was huge with a large comfortable bed. It was also very clean and beautifully decorated. The breakfast was excellent with loads of variety. The hotel is central to everything and i would definitely recommend this fabulous hotel to anyone.

Wasn't too sure what to expect, but upon investigation the whole hotel had a really fun and fresh atmosphere. Everything seems very 'new', with a modern, urban art feel to the rooms and decor, which might not be to everyone's taste, but gives it a nice, light feel.

Staff were great, breakfast was perfectly fine, and the only real complaint I can think of is that the bedroom seemed perpetually roasting. Which, given that it's March and the hotel is in Ireland, isn't as big a problem as you might imagine.
