Strandhill Lodge & Suites was a random recommendation from a friend who lives in the area. Before going, I checked the reviews on TA and saw that they were all excellent. Our experience of this hotel completely lived up to expectations. I, and two friends, arrived from London for New Years Eve. We had a lovely greeting on arrival at reception from the two young ladies working that day - they were so friendly, but in a natural, not-over-the-top way. Check in was quick.
Our triple room was spotless, enormous and really well equipped with a TV / DVD, iPod dock, fridge and hairdryer. Wifi was free and generally reliable Really everything you could possibly need when away from home. Within minutes of getting to our room, one of the ladies on reception had rung around and found out our local nightlife options for NYE!
Continental breakfast was provided up to 11am (bonus!) and was really very nice. The hotel staff were very helpful when we were deciding what to see in the surrounding area. David was really knowledgeable about Sligo and gave clear directions.
We only had one complaint, and this was that the room was quite hot even with the heating switched off. For this reason, I've rated sleep quality as average. However, overall, staying there was a lovely experience, especially given the time of year when the staff might have been busy and stressed. They really could not do enough for us.
It goes without saying that the surrounding area is beautiful and the locals friendly, but this hotel is outstanding, especially when you consider the very reasonable rates. I recommend this hotel highly and I hope to stay there again in the future.
