    by

    Had visited in Feb 2005 with 3 friends. Room not prepared at 4.00pm. Given another room. Had to carry own bags up and down stairs. Dirty pair of pants in drawer. No towels. Curtain hanging off rail. Offered free drink at bar. Did not avail of this so given 30 euro off bill. Booked again for 50th birthday with husband and two friends in May (booked here because everywhere else full). No porters, towels removed and not replaced until room made up at 6.00pm approx. Fabric on base of bed torn. Ask for but didn't get fan for one of rooms which was very stuffy. Lot of guests dissatisfied at same time. Swimming pool ok, fitness suite excellent but Yeats suite (jacuzzi etc) horrible. Not enough staff on Reception (which is grotty looking) Housekeeping staff very pleasant but overworked. E mailed hotel and Bord Failte 16 May to express dissatisfaction. Only getting closure now. Apology and Gift Voucher for Skylon Hotel, Dublin. NOT PLEASED.

    Even if they do iron out the problems it is too expensive for what you get.

    Never again and will not recommend to anyone - DON'T GO THERE!!
    last visit on May, 2005.

lodging near sligo train station

by seyahat

Can anyone recommend a hotel or B&B in Sligo that is not too far from the train station? (Unless the train station is in a dreadful part of town that you'd discourage staying in.) Main concerns are something accessible to my 93-year-old mom who uses a push walker and can't do a lot of stairs at one time. Did you have occasion to use either taxi or bus from the station to the hotel or B&B? Do you recall the approximate cost?

I haven't stayed there myself but the Sligo Southern Hotel is close to the railway station and has a lift. Check the website www.thesligosouthernhotel.com

The Sligo City Hotel is located close to station.
I can recommend, I have stayed there.

Not a lot of B&Bs close to station and none that I could recommend.

Thank you, folks, for your response about lodging near the Sligo train station. I have a couple more questions: 1) How's the public transit going north--I'm thinking of a bus to Ballyshannon. Do you remember seeing whether either the municipal buses or the inter-city buses have a front step that lowers? I'm not talking about getting a wheelchair on, but Mom definitely can't do the 18-inch step that the tour companies have on their buses.
Thanks a lot!

I don't have personal experience of the access to buses in the Sligo/Donegal area but having checked the website for the National Bus Company (Bus Eireann) the signs are quite positive regarding 'KNEELING' buses. Have a look at www.buseireann.ie then go to 'your journey' and then 'accessibility' for more info.
Also it might be worth posting this as a new, separate question as someone local or who has travelled on the bus may have knowledge of the situation but may not follow the thread on your original question. AM
