      • Older travelers
        7.4

        Hotel was comfortable with spacious rooms. Staff were friendly and leisure facilities were good. Would recomend it for convience to town and beaches.

        When checking out asked about golf trip as I organise golf trips for a group of friends. No one available to discuss same.

      • Family with children
        9.2

        we booked a double room with a cot and were very happy with the good sized room (room 304). unfortunately didnt get a chance to use the jaccuzi bath that was in our room. great value for money and great selection for buffet breakfast.

      • Single
        7.8

        The staff is very helpful and the room was spacious and very clean. There are also lots of car spaces.

        Many steps up to the main entrance. The bar was a little antiquated and the lunch menu was very limited. No information was given when I arrived on their leisure facilities.

      • Group of friends
        10.0

        Friendly, helpful staff, good service, excellent disabled facilities in the room which was ideal for someone with mobility difficulties. Good parking, very convenient location for driving out to sight-see and for walking into town for shopping.

        Staff were very friendly and helpful.

        Found the room too hot and could not open the window beyoun a limited setting. Could not make the room any cooler and because of this found sleeping diffucult.

        Room was excellent but location terrible. Next door to lift and noise was horrendous. All day and early hours of morning. Asked staff did they give these rooms to Booked.net

        Pure comfort, friendly and helpful staff, superb food, value for money, great facilities, central location to explore Sligo and the surounding country side, overall a very relaxed enviroment. Home from home.

        The best thing was getting moved to a slightly better room only stayed in it one night then left.

        The wedding that I attended "Sean & Michelle's"

        one of the rooms that I had booked smelled very musty.

      • Group of friends
        5.8

        The room was small and there was a musty smell in it . The hairdryer did not work .

      • Group of friends
        10.0

        The staff, they were fantastic from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. Beautiful hotel...we will certainly be recommending it and if we are in this part of the country again we will have absolutley no hesitations in booking here. Thank you all for a brilliant stay!!

        Leaving!!

      • Group of friends
        4.0

        Located in the city center and transportation.

        The hotel staff is very rude and treated us as a bother and nuisance. It totally lacked the Irish hospitality we experienced in Ireland. I will tell other family not to spoil a good trip and stay at Worst Western in Sligo. Very disappointed in Hotel staff! Dennis Thompson

      • Single

        The noise near the room was annoying in the morning. I could not ascertain where it was coming from but it seemed to be some near by extractor fan or air con unit.
