Upper Class Canteen Food
Our 2nd trip to Radisson Sligo but disappointed this time. Arrived late Friday evening and had bar food. The menu has changed but little choice. Frozen chips smelling of oil.
Breakfast: Cold meats, cheese all processed. Hot food - the worst we ever had, rashers nearly looked green and scramble egg was a funny yellow colour! Dinner was below average, best were the vegetables.
Our room and the staff were excellent. Head Waiter George wasted in this Hotel.
Will not return again.
Not impressed at all
Expecting to be treated the the lovely pampering "valentine weekend" package we had booked, we were sorely dissappointed. Reception staff were inefficient, unhelpful and arrogant. The promised champagne on arrival took about ten requests, and I had to fight for the "free spa treatment" that was supposedly included in the package. Dinner was abyssmal. Service was incredibly slow and the tiny portion of food we got was appalling. Room was cold, sterile and unwelcoming. Bar staff were the only highlight of this hotel that we certainly will not be visiting again. This hotel lets down the Radisson's good name
We just felt that this hotel was a let down, the room service took over 1 hour to arrive and when it did half of what we ordered did not arrive. Generally I felt for a 4 star hotel the food was not great at all. Portions are small and expensive and not the best tasting either. Room was clean though, beds very comfortable and SPA area was great. I would go back only to use the spa area but wouldnt be rushing back to stay there.
We expected batter of this hotel on a weekend break. The room was as expected for a Radisson and the spa was nice but the most disappointing thing was the restaurant. The menu was pretty basic as was the food. Also the restaurant over looks the car park rather than taking advantage of great views of benbulbin at the back of the hotel. Would definitely recommend a taxi into Sligo for dinner if you are staying here. The staff were friendly and helpful though so cant fault them there.
Very comfortable beds pity to have to queue for breakfast!
My husband and I stayed here over the Easter break.
On the plus side, the bed was very comfortable but expected a bathrobe and slippers as with other radisson hotels...
The restaurant reminded me of an old folks home - overlooking the car park and generally quite old fashioned for a brand new hotel.
There were queues for breakfast both mornings and lots of people complaining about having to wait. There were plenty of tables but not enough staff to clear them. Maybe this was due to the large number of people staying for Easter but they should have anticapted this as lots of people will not return as a result.
On the plus side - the spa is definitely worth a visit as it's the nicest area of the hotel!
Great hotel, couldn't fault it
We had a wonderful stay here, even in a family room - always a good test of a hotel. The standards of service were very impressive and the accommodation is very comfortable and attractive. We would freely recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to visit beautiful Sligo and hope to visit ourselves again one day.
Hotel good but Taxis were a ripoff
We stayed in the Radisson for two nights and the hotel is really nice. What put a damper on the weekend which i would like to warn other people about is the price which we were charged for taxis. We went for a really nice meal on the saturday night in Rosses Point which is about 3km form the hotel and we were charged 15 euro each way. We were told that the taxi charges you from town. We did complain to the hotel and they informed us it is a common complaint.
To get a taix into Sligo you are charged 10 euro and to rosses point 15 euro.
not up to radisson standards
Stayed here for 2 nights and as a regular radisson hotel customer I was disapointed.
The room was pretty standard but the restaurant was very bad. The service was slow, lots of 'avoiding eye contact' with the guests (had to go to desk to request the bill). side orders not delivered until 10 mins after the main course (with no apology). Quality of food was poor and our bill included 3 extra bottles of wine. As there were only two of us that was a careless mistake (no apology). Coffee was awful too. Two other tables complained about the food that night as well.
some of the tables overlook the reception, so you can watch people checking in as you eat, not ideal! It was very overpriced, bland, awful - indeed a 'rip off'.
Breakfast meant queues and a bit of a 'free for all'. Not enough staff to service the amount of guests. Again, food poor here.
The bar smelled of fried chips and was a bit grotty so we had our drinks in the lounge which was quite pleasant. The spa was wonderful - the highlight of the trip. The gym staff were friendly and those facilities were good.
If you are staying here - avoid the restaurant, get a taxi into town as we did the following night.
Nice Weekend stay
Just spent a very nice weekend in the Radisson in Sligo, I have previously stayed in the Radisson in Dublin which is a five star hotel and one would notice the difference. Upon entering the room I noticed some stains in the carpet which gave me a negative first impression. However after that though things improved, the Bathroom was spotless as was the bed linen and all facilities were laid on, Had ice machine on every floor which was also a nice bonus and a nicely stocked mini bar. The Spa was very nice and i had a number of lovely treatments. What I would say however is that the staff in the spa are very young. The moistuiser in the changing rooms in the spa is really lovely and unfortunately is it not for sale, or I would have purchased it. The Breakfast was v good and the hotel also provides a grap and go breadfast service in the foyer which is really good. I did not eat in the restaurant but had an absolutely amazing meal in the nearby Waterfront Restaurant in Rosses Point (will definately be going back for their fish dish for two) Overall a positive experience. Tip: there are weddings on in the hotel most weekends so ask for a room away from noise if this is what you wish, otherwise you may hear the music from the Band in your room.
Pleasant hotel in a good position
We stayed over the weekend for three nights and, having read some of the previous reviews, we were wondering what to expect. Let's start with the food. The breakfast offering was good - all the usual Radisson fare. The dinner menu too was good although not extensive and the 3 meals we enjoyed were well cooked and presented. The early bird menu is a particular bargain. We found the mixture of Irish and international staff to be warm and friendly and very helpul - they certainly liked chatting. If you look at the photograph of the restaurant you can see the screens dividing it from the reception foyer - not exactly a major problem !
We stayed in a business class room and this was clean, roomy and comfortable with a pleasant bathroom and seperate sitting area with TV. A little Saturday night [or more accurately Sunday morning!] wedding music did drift up but not intolerably so. The swimming pool and sports and fitness facilities are second to none - but don't forget your swimming cap.
Sligo town is a W B Yeats shrine. It's not too big but is certainly worth spending a few hours there. Donegal with its interesting castle is within easy reach and Ceide Fields (a well presented neolithic site) is worth the drive on winding roads.
The hotel is only about 2 years old and has yet to establish the reputation of some of the older venues. However, it is comfortable and well placed and will in time no doubt become a well liked favourite with what it has to offer.
