The space in the family suite. Lack of choice for food after 6, esp for older children. No bar food, only expensive restaurant open
Pool seemed nice. Staff pleasant and helpful. Food was dreadful - breakfast and dinner. Rooms had missing lightbulbs. A lot of paint and superficial damage to walls and doors in bedroom. Choice of tv stations poor, reception poor.
Staff very friendly, Hotel and facilites very good Atmosphere in hotel excellent.
service and leisure centre room a bit warm.only 4 irish channels on telly even though it advertised more and internet was not working
Nice Spa area, clean room. extremely large house, weddings with loud drunken people
The kudos restaurant was a fantastic change from the usual "a la carte" options Our room was situated as far away as possible from any life form! and the room was a tad small and claustrophobic. Took 10 minutes to reach it from the lift. but when i told staff they did advise next time to ask for a closer room - so credit where credit is due!
Having to wait two hours for our room to be ready
the quality of the bed linen and towels
wonderful large room in a beautiful old building
The staff were willing to facilitate in any way they could and the food was excellent. Very impressive hotel.
I loved the design, the glass front of the hotel offered lovely views across Sligo. The hotel bar could be extremely if there was a function in the upper bar area, as the music could be heard throughout the bottom bar and in some of the bedrooms.
Location brilliant. Staff very friendly. Definately will stay there again
Location. The toilets in the hotel have to be the worst i have ever come across. The pressure in the flush needs to be increased
The location of the hotel. The comfort. The parking. It was perfect for the business i had to do
Comfortable bed The room was too warm, and I couldn't turn down the heat.The shower had terrible water pressure. The car park was not easy to find (poorly signposted).
Efficient friendly staff even though were busy. Interesting decor , good bar food and breakfast buffet. Damp and slightly dark car park needs painting to reflect some light ad some spaces need remarking. Lifts seem to be very slow to respond.
location very central you need to provide a better lift service for people trying to get from car park to reception 12 mins waiting for lift and eventually had to drag cases up the stairwell not a good first impression . Picture on bedroom wall in room too much but i will accept that only my personal opinion
The room was clean and tasteful The noise from guests banging doors at 3am became monotonous, no good for a full night sleep, door springs would help.
Very comfortable bed, good location and friendly staff. Lighting in the bathroom could be improved as poor for applying makeup.
Location and some staff. Early check-in. I asked for two things at the front desk. Despite promises to deal with the problems, nothing happened.
Staff are professional and friendly not as near to Rosses Point as we had hoped
great location, friendly staff, lovely rooms, clean and large
rooms and facilities bar prices
The staff were very friendly, room was very comfortable, everyhing very clean. Really enjoyed our stay. Woul definetly go back!
The health centre and restaurant bar. After a lot of travelling it was great to be able to use these facilities.
The hotel was clean with a friendly atmosphere. Breakfast was nice though a bit disorganised. There was in particular that I did not like about the hotel.
Lovely hotel very comfortable,spectacular views, very helpful staff,great breakfast buffet. Nice location close to fabulous beach at Rosses point.
Good location and friendly staff.
Hotel staff were excellent and couldn't have been more helpful. The leisure facilities are excellent, and general standards of cleanliness are very good overall. Breakfast was also first class. Overheard other guests complaining (on more than one occasion) that food in the restaurant was very poor, but can't confirm or otherwise as we didn't actually eat in the hotel.
The Spa Facilities are superb and the rooms are bright and spacious. It's just a little too far away from the town centre and unless you drive it entails taking taxis which adds additional cost.
I couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough. Great value for money and lovely services.
The rooms were beautiful with great bathrooms. The bed and linens were high quality, I slept exceedingly well. The breakfast was also first class, with many options whether sit-down or on the go. I was impressed with the number of vegetarian and vegan offerings on the menu in addition to the traditional Irish breakfast offerings. The hotel has a renovated and contemporary feel, whereas I would have preferred something more quaint, that wasn't clear in the photos. But all other factors more than made up for it!
Great location, Very clean apartments, top of the range appliances, all brand new, Spacious, Quiet None
its locationis excellent on the river nice for walking but convenient for shopping as well lack of parking
The commitment of staff to make your stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible Kitchen utensils were cheap and basic
The suite was very good value for money, being very big with all mod cons etc. It is very close to Sligo town centre with many pubs and restaurants nearby. The accommodation was quiet at night which enabled us to sleep okay which we liked. There seemed to be no hot water in the hot taps but when I let one of them run for over five minutes, the water gradually became hot enough to enable me to shave.
central location with good restaurant. reception staff on arrival was brilliant on second night just the opposite we would have had a totally different impression of the hotel had we been checking in then! The dirty carpet(stained) and rusty bath detracted from an otherwise 1st class experience.
Well located close to centre of town, comfortable and spacious. Car parking is limited.
The Location of the hotel was very central with easy access to the town centre. The apartment was well equipped especially the kitchen having appliances such as dishwasher etc. The spartment was well laid out and very spacious The apartment while was very clean in general and well presented there were a few minor cosmetic things that could have been solved with a small bit of maintenance. These included stain on carpet, marks on wardrobe door, rusting on lamp.
It was a nice and friendly place. Very clean and warm. Would recommend it to all my friends.
The organization, the cleansing of the room, the restaurant and the use of the wonderful swimming pool included in the fee.
Nice hotel. We stayed in a triple room which had a good size.
comfortable spacious room and excellent service.
The staff and facilities were excellent. As we had young children and infants the staff were only too willing to help. The food was excellent and the bar staff very friendly and the breakfast buffet excellent.
The hotel has a great swimming pool and tennis courts, which were usually easy free. Our family room was great as it was close to leisure center and overlooked tennis courts. No.
The staff were extremely polite and helpful, we really couldnt fault them
it was clean friendly well located and affordable the entire stay was very nice
Relaxation. Good Breakfast.Efficient Service.
The booking was handled so quickly and efficiently, and check in and out was very well handled.
It was a short overnight stay and I did not have the opportunity to avail of all the services. The room was comfortable although it could have been a little warmer. It would be unfair of me to recommend on such a short visit and for the same reason I would not be over critical. Tea/coffe making facility was in an awkward position...at head height within the wardrobe!!! Potentially dangerous. Apart from that and the heat, the room was perfectly adequate
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.
I did like the morning brakfast, but could not understand why no one was able to sit at the window tables, for those of us reading, working ect the light would be better, and it is silly to dress the tables and then gard them from the people, what are they show and tell, as far as the people looking in, when no one is at the table it looks empty, not just pretty, people at the tables look busy, silly policy, We (the hote did l andI) did not know the phone was not working in my room , when it could not be fixed they ds, id move me, but this did go on my first few day
Bar food at 6.00pm suited as we were going to a show at 8. Food was excellent. Desk staff helped make theatre reservation which was appreciated. Steps both inside and outside hotel were a problem as my husband is visually impaired. Also walk in shower in bedroom would make life a little easier!
well it waslovely and warm and very relaxing and the room was great very comfortably
The Southern Hotel Group when it was built was one of the best groups for travellers. However now that it is a McEniff Hotel its standards are much lower. The rooms were ok, but the mattresses and pillows were the cheapest foam products. The worst was the restaurant - dinner at a set price of €38 per person. No a la carte menu. The menu (full of misspellings) was like a menu from the 1970's ie turkey & ham covered in gravy, vegetable soup, semolina pudding (school food). Seven of us sat down at a table, (despite having advised the dining room in advance that we wished to have a table for 7) it had not even a tablecloth. The table was dressed with us all sitting there. Service appalling
Leaving it. This hotel is very tired and needs a major overhaul. 1st room offered was dingy with hardly any light and dark wallpaper - very depressing. Second room was lighter but bathroom fittings were loos. Bed had nylon sheets. Breakfast was adequate. We left after one night.
We found this a very pleasant hotel. We expected a generic N American style Best Western and were happy to find it an old and atmospheric place. We always love a visit to Sligo and enjoyed its proximity to the town so that we could walk around. Breakfast was good and the decor of the hotel was very nice. Would certainly stay again when visiting Sligo. None
Very friendly and welcoming staff Room was nice and bed very comfy apart from the smell of mould and limescale everywhere in bathroom.
Staff friendly Sometimes 2 single beds are put together to make a double with 2 single quilts, not very comfortable
It was convient to the centre of town. Felt the hotel is out dated, dark and the rooms need to be upgraded, TV on table, bathrooms were outdated and the bath itself was yellow due to not being replaced in years.
We stayed in Castle Dargan for just one night for a wedding. The rooms are really luxurious and had everything you need. The food was lovely and the bar has a nice view overlooking the golf course.
Lovely and new and nice and quite If that is what you are looking for Yes, I was going to book a 4 ball for golf for 3 clients of mine and stay over,the rate for staying over with green fees was excellent, but having eaten in the restaurant it was over priced,not very good and put me off as you would then have to travel for food
The location is great piece and quiet yet near the city if needed.
Staff were lovely, very helpful. Beautiful grounds and just a lovely place. Would definitely recommend. For those of us from overseas who are unaware, please be advised that there are 2 Ballygawleys in Ireland. (one northern and one southern) make sure you have the correct one, as they are 2 hours away from each other. You guessed it we went to the wrong one!!! But Castle Dargan was well worth the 2 hour trip.
We had a very enjoyable stay. We enjoyed the quiteness and the hotel was very clean. The food was very good. The staff were very friendly. Just one minor gripe. We only has 4-5 stations on the TV - we had RTE2 but not RTE1. We said nothing - maybe someone had simply tuned them out before.
lovely size rooms,bright and comfortable duvet too heavy,and level of noise in bar too much.The sound is not absorbed
the whole experience
Friendly and clean Bar area, no atmosphere and cold
Sole reason for visit was golf/relaxation Lack of receipt issue in bar.
The hotel location was good. Hotel was a bit 'aged' but still fine
the surrounding countryside I have written a letter of complaint to the hotel
i liked everything a wonderful experience. No
Good size room, great views, clean, good bathroom facilities Nothing
Swimming pool Rooms very cold and not worth €150 would not stay there again
Not much hotel to old and ran down , staff where unpleasant and one with glasses was annoying . Way over priced 150 for one night a real joke .
The standard of food and the welcoming staff. Nothing
Location is great but hotel is very old and needs bit of repair and it's not worth that much money
We had booked to attend an Elvis weekend that was on in the hotel so staying in the hotel was brilliant
The room and breakfast was very good, the staff were very helpful (in particular the receptionist on the day of my check out -she was really under pressure but remained cheerful and patient).
Location Parking a little limited & hard to find.
Liked its closeness to town centre
location and staff beds were lumpy-must not be flipped regurarly. no room service during night
room clean very central to shops staff friendly no room in car park no heating in room
Location in heart of town. Bar was not busy therefore lacked athmosphere
Friendly staff - good central location. I have stayed at this hotel on business several times over the last 2 to 3 years and have never had a problem.
The staff were friendly and polite. The beds in the room were small and tilted i.e. foot of bed was higher than the head of the bed.
The location in the centre of Sligo. Free parking. Breakfast. The bath drained slowly. There was a stray sock beside my bed. Wireless internet was available but the cost prevented me from using it.
Excellent cuisine & location. Very friendly & helpful staff Tea & Coffee facilities within the room would have given our stay the final gold star
having a meal in the resturant the hair dryer in the bathroom was not very powerfull, bring your own.
The restaurant was very good and an excellent breakfast in the morning.Clean and airy room.
friendlyness of staff cleaniness of all parts of hotel and excellent food and nothing was too much trouble no tea or coffee facility in rooms
We loved the reception rooms which had lots of interesting and imaginative paintings, prints and ceramics.The bistro was exceptional and the service, style, surroundings and food was of a very good standard. We had a picture window in the bedroom overlooking Donegal bay and could sit watching the sun go down and people surfing at low tide. The bedroom was very spacious with pleasant decor. I was not convinced that we were warmly welcomed and there was a slight lack of professionalism in attitude and behaviour of staff but it did not significantly affect our overall very pleasant experience.
Very good location. Car Parking facilities help.
Excellent staff, excellent location and a lovely room in very nice surroundings No
Great service, great value.
The welcome was excellent. The room was very comfortable. Breakfast was good.
We really enjoyed our stay, Staff were very Friendly & efficent...Can not say anything bad about it.... No We loved it.......
The hotel was very comfortable and friendly. I really enjoyed my stay Unfortunately the dining room during evening meal was a wee bit hectic
Food was nice, hotel clean, good entertainment When we arrived, the Hotel was doublebooked so we were told that we had to stay in The Great Northern Hotel for one of the nights then pack up and come down to the Holyrood for our last nite of out stay Generally most of the staff were helpfull with the excption of one of the girls on Reception, who was very rude...
I was very happy with my room this time, it was clean, quiet and great valu for money, and the holyrood is a great location as it's only 1min away from the slots!!! lol
Spacious rooms and bathrooms, comfortable and good bed Bad tv reception, very few tv channels and wireless internet was on in function.
It was nice to stay mid week for a good price, good to get to use the swimming pool, Breakfast good, Was very quiet not many staying at that time of year, no Dinner available at bar, Dinner not as good as hoped.
The room was decorated very modern and had a hairdryer and television which was good. The spa was excellent, best part of the trip. Food in bar nice also.
Location of hotel No iron or fridge in the room and when requested it was not provided.
I did not like the food and I did not like the smell in the bar as it was of cooked cabbage.
The room was spacious, with a couch as well. The staff were helpful with recommendations for places to eat. The bed linen needs changing - the sheets were very coarse and the blankets very scratchy. There was no remote for the TV in the room, and no WiFi available within the hotel. Overall, not a bad hotel but just ordinary with no added extras, I wouldn't rush back.
Very little The room we stayed in wasn't clean, the bathroom had mould growing on the grouting, and it was noisy. Breakfast in the hotel was adequate, however queueing for up to 20 mins outside the dining room just to get breakfast was unacceptable. The evening meal (which was part of our package) was poor. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
