Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great hotel for families. We stayed in an interconnecting family room and it was great. Both rooms were really spacious. They were warm and comfortable and have everything we needed. Parking was easy and there was plenty available. The food in the hotel was lovely and all of the staff we met in the bar and restaurant were super friendly, especially the guys who worked breakfast in the morning. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Only a few minutes drive into Sligo town and a good location overall.

Stunning looking hotel, in a grand setting. Warm welcome at reception, room was lovely, clean and well equipped. Bar was ok but the person who made it great was Ardee, charming, funny and cheeky and welcomed after a long day sight seeing. Food in the bar was great, nicely presented and the chef was only too happy to accommodate my dietary needs. Breakfast was enough to feed an army and are morning was made by the chatty, cheeky Irish fella Dario! He certainly put a smile on our faces. It’s clear you have a shortage of staff hence the 4 star, but enjoyed our stay and although short staffed everyone meet us with a warm welcome and a smile! Well done!

OK for families, not for couples, it was ok. No atmosphere in bar at all. We wanted a quite room and a bit of craic in the bar, but we didn't get either. Had to change rooms as we were put in a jointed room with children next door making noise. We went away to have a break from kids, not to spend another night awake with screaming kids. Room we moved to was fine. There is no atmosphere at all in bar, it's lacking a bit of craic, it's clinical. We had spa treatments and it was really lacking. Mine was too light, and cut short. On the positive side, food was really good. Its a practical hotel. Grand for families as it seemed to be mostly families.

I have no idea where this hotel got its 4 star status, must of been handing them out free at the time! The resturant is nice but the hotel and rooms is giving faulty towers! The rooms are dirty, we paid for a family suite and it was terrible, stains on the floor and stains on sofa, generally have stayed in better bnbs.

Lukasz - Server made our visit one to remember. We called hear and was met by a lovely receptionist who booked us in and met Chloe who booked us in for our dinner. I had a look at the room and was lovely and clean but too far for some of my party who are disabled. But I checked with the head receptionist and she moved me to a room closer to reception. We went for our meal and lukasz was such a lovely gentleman who looked after us. He had such a friendly attitude and very helpful And made our night. Chloe was also a lovely lady who was very friendly and the restaurant manager we met for breakfast. Your members of staff are amazing. Lukasz is definitely one person should be looked for promotion.

Stayed in The Clayton for 2 nights and won’t be going back. Stayed in a twin room but it had an interconnecting door to a neighbouring room. Could hear every voice and noise from next door and got very little sleep. I reported to reception but they said they know they have soundproofing issues and plan to solve them in 2024!! I ordered a pint of Guinness - a dirty glass leading to poor presentation- see picture attached.

Background My fiancee was having her Hen party dinner in the Clayton. So I taught it would be nice to surprise have some wine delivered to the table. Exprience Drove down in person to the hotel, went to reception & explained what I wanted, to order & pay for the wine for the meal that evening. Was brought over to the bar & ordered the 4 bottles, paid for them , explained the note to mention me & was assured all would be sorted. (Thankfully I took the receipt) Roll on the evening, dinner started, mains started, no sign of the wine, only for I told the maid of honour to expect the wine, I dont think they would ever have delivered the wine, they had no record of my request or purchase, so I sent her a copy of the reciept so they then had proof & could get the wine asap. It was brought to the table after the meal (to acknowledge, with some processco as an apology) I tried ringing the number on the receipt & it just rings out (multiple times). Livid was an understatement, very very angry with this hotel, would never ever recommend & hope they never ever get 1 more cent from me or you again. I'm local to Sligo but this was very poor. Mistakes happen but this was a one off special request & they got it very very wrong. Avoid, you have been warned! (They do get 2 stars as the dinner itself was very nice)

I stayed at this Hotel for one night while travelling for business. It is located in a quiet area just a few minutes from the town. The lady on reception was very welcoming and gave me all of the details on dining options and leisure centre times etc. My room was excellent! Very spacious, spotlessly clean and the bed was one of the most comfortable beds that I have had in any hotel before. I had dinner in the bar which was also excellent and breakfast did not disappoint either. I have stayed in other Hotels in Sligo and the surrounding areas in the past but will definitely make this hotel my base when I am working in the area or in need of a few relaxing days away. Keep up the great work!

Great stay, staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Food was great for dinner in the restaurant and morning buffet. Best pint of Guinness to be found in Sligo! Room was good size with a comfy bed and decent shower - score 9.5/10 Only reason wouldn't give the full 10/10 was the room was chilly with no way to turn on heating.

Lovely stay at this hotel. Rooms good size, all requirements catered for. Beds and pillows very comfortable. All very clean.Found it difficult to access the shower due to door stopper at edge of bath. Pool, jacuzzi all spotless , was really impressed - staff really really helpful. Breakfast exceptional. Scrambled eggs only on counter but staff very willing and helpful when asked for poached / fried eggs. Evening meal not really for us. Starters and desserts were lovely but main meal was very disappointing.
