    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.

    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

    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

    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.

    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

    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.
