Rooms clean, had a view of the river which was nice. Hotel overall quirky but not overally garish. Location cannot be more central. Parking very reasonablely priced Staff friendly. Did not eat here so cannot comment on the food Overall, no problems and found it good value for money.

Booked a room - guaranteed by card - all well as in every hotel I've ever stayed in. Arrived at 10.30 and was told they gave my room away at 8.00pm! All other hotels booked up - they could find a double bed 8 mile away (we needed a twin) so just drove 3 hours back home in the middle...

Stayed for 2 nights at the weekend and was very impressed with this hotel. The only thing that let the hotel down was the children attending a communion party thought it was ok to climb all over the furniture whilst parents got drunk in the bar Location is excellent and we had a nice bar meal at a reasonable price

Have stayed in the glasshouse before but was really disappointed on this occasion and will not be staying again. Arrived at 2pm and there was a sign saying 'car park full' I phoned the hotel (and after being on hold for 9 minutes) the girl on reception was extremely unhelpful and advised me to 'come back later' I asked if...

Defintitely not your run of the mill city centre hotel! I loved the quirky decoration and furnishing, my partner not so much. But it is well located in the centre of Sligo and has underground parking for 3Euro a night. The entrance to the hotel and parkade is off a side street and not obvious to find. We had an...

This is a lovely hotel, right in the centre of town so location is perfect. The staff were helpful and the hotel was clean and well kept. The food was ok, but I'd recommend going for a walk around the river walk area in front of the hotel. There are some nice little cafés and restaurants there.

Wanted to try somewhere central and this hotel looked great. As we were only staying one night the fact it had no gym, pool, sauna or steam room didn't matter. The bar was busy and comfortable, with very friendly bar staff. Breakfast was great with plenty of choice. Our bed was comfortable and the room a little too modern for...

My family and I booked a suite in the 6th floor, stayed there for four nights. The curtains was poor, the window untidy. In the bathroom the water didn't flow out of the washbasin. We said it at the reception, somebody came, looked, said hmmm and went away, without doing anything. The chairs at the balcon are broken. We asked...

I'm not sure what I expected, but the fact that I drove past this hotel twice whilst looking for it, says a lot. The pictures lead you to believe it is an impressive structure, but really, its just a building added onto other buildings on a bridge. I was checked in briskly, by a receptionist who walked past me twice...
