We had a wonderful break. It was an overnight get away to catch up with friends. The dinner, B&B deal for €120 for the two of us was wonderful. We didn't get to use the leisure facilities but the staff were polite, kind, professional; food was amazing and service was very good also. There were no frills but it was perfect for what we booked. Our only 'complaint' would be that the carpet in the room was quite dirty. Not something that can be vacuumed; would require a steam clean; but this did not affect our stay at all.
lovely hotel, staff where very nice, enjoyed the swimming pool
Room was grand.
Had dinner on the evening of arrival and didn't really enjoy it. My wife and I were of the opinion that our choice of menu was what had been available at lunch time and that what we ordered was only reheated.
Lovely family hotel. Third time staying here. Keep returning for the value, the food, the staff and the pool. 3 beds in the room is so handy. Excellent location also.
Good value hotel. Clean, quiet and spacious family room - great to have a third bed instead of the usual camp bed. Dinner and breakfast both good. Leisure centre pool a little cool but no complaints other than that.
Excellent. Great value. Impressed with Leisure Centre. Only negative: Asked to pay for drinks when checking out even though I had already paid in restaurant/bar – fortunately I had retained receipt; no apology offered.
Hotel was grubby, really understaffed in the restaurant, basic accomodation!
B & B excellent. Will use again.
I could not fault the hotel itself. It was clean, welcoming and the room was of a really high standard and very spacious. All staff were friendly and more than accommodating at all times and we really enjoyed our stay. The only blemish was that the restaurant for our evening meal was understaffed for the amount of diners and also one of the staff seemed new and unsure. While both staff members were friendly it took 2 hours from start to finish for our dinner. That is fine if it's just a couple but trying to keep 3 small children amused and content for that length of time is a minor miracle!!!! And we only had 2 course! We did enjoy our stay and would go back again.
Excellent family place yo stay in summer especially! Great facilities great location. The website pix don't do it justice x
Nice stay, rooms lovely and clean, staff friendly, pool area a little cold. Would stay again.
lovely staff ,lovely room,only down side was the restaurant. we had booked in for dinner ,we waited 45 mins beyond our booking time until I approached a member of staff........they had forgotten us we ate at 10pm food was dry and re-heated. we ate it but only as we were starving.actual hotel was nice ...pity about the restaurant .very poor service.bar and restaurant being managed by the same person...running all over the place.
I visited Maldron Hotels in Portlaoise number of times with my family and each time I see the standards being optimized. Its a Hotel where family can have a perfect vacation. Friendly staff ,nice restaurant and also a food court next. Only thing I noticed this time was a bit of more bleach in jacuzzi. Will keep visiting them again :-).
Staff were friendly and helpful. The meal included in the package was delicious and above expectations for the price point. Room was clean, roomy and quiet. Lovely stay, Pity there is no Atmosphere or Music in the Bar, We were a party of 7 & Donna had our rooms beside each other with door between us .

Ideally located just off the M7 and only a short distance from the town. The room was spot-on and the breakfast was good also. I liked the fact that they had take away coffee cups with lids. Nice touch.
Would stay there again.
i had a good say rooms were nice, all staff were really nice apart form a bald guy who worked in the swimming pool/gym he was quite aggressive at one point, that is why i didn't give it 5 stars. the price was great as well.. i would go again..

I stayed in this hotel for one night as part of a party of 17 women, we had a great time, the staff were friendly & helpful, the food was excellent, & the rooms were warm, clean & comfortable, i will go back again soon
Great hotel friendly staff. Easy to get in and out of Dublin from here. Would recommend
We found the hotel leisure centre of a very high standard. The staff were friendly and very helpful particularly the reception staff
We had a great break in the hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. We will come back.
Dissapointing stay - bar had no atmoshphere and breakfast was not nice at all - eggs left lying until thy had a skin on them/ orange juice watered down etc.
Also guests rrunning around in Pyjamas all day - looked liek the hotel was housing guests. Would not return
great value for money.. good location. friendly helpful staff. great facilities. would go back
Lovely escape. Hotel rooms are very big and comfortable. Staff vey friendly. Restaurant food was nice and the bar staff very accommodating. Leisure facilities a bonus. Overall a great mini break
The Hotel staff were extremely friendly..Hotel was basic, modern and clean
Hotel staff very friendly, good value rooms - size -clean; gym facility excellent;
Breakfast was of very poor quality - sorry not up to standard
Spa treatment was great and the girls were lovely. All staff at the hotel reception bar staff were lovely. Food was absolutely terrible!
Room was perfect and the beds were comfy no problems with the room. Only issue we had was the noise made by other guests up until 3am in the morning. Also the bar is not a residence bar you would usually get in a hotel, it closed far to early.
Great hotel with pool gym and steam room. Breakfast was great! Full irish breakfast, cereals, breads and pastries. We got a twin room which was pretty large with a double bed and a single bed. Theres a food complex beside the hotel with a nice range of fast foods, pizzas, Subway, O'briens etc. Only downside was that there was no fridge in the room, which was irritating . But great hotel, would visit again
Was lovely relaxing Hotel no air conditioning which was really needed on the two nights we were there. The food was ok, more variety needed was same menu both nights. And the waiting staff were not very friendly. But loved the Hotel couldn't fault it great pool & gym.
We had a pleasant stay, The only thing that we were not happy with was we had to wait 45 minutes for our room, every thing else was fine and the staff were friendly many thanks Kayleigh,.
Excellent service and a very enjoyable hotel. Stir Restaurant felt as if it was separate than the hotel itself and had a very casual feel to it for a hotel restaurant dining room. The hotel itself was lovely however I feel the restaurant lowers the tone of the hotel. Overall a very enjoyable stay and no complaints.
lovely hotel great breakfast staff friendly and helpful easy acess to motorway and portlaoise
Worst hotel in Ireland,not even 3 stars,bar and resturant absolutely terrible,staff abrupt with customers,this is a maneger less hotel ,ther is no way a competent manager would run a hotel like this place,if this is last hotel available on your chosen dates ,pay more and stay some where else,not for couples looking romantic weekend please give this place a miss,don't book here,thank god for review s ,it will send a message to hotels to treat your customer right, sh-t hole
Perfect way to book everything was 100%thank you
Nice experience overall, staff were friendly but seemed a bit stretched. Rooms are a little bit dated / shabby for a Maldron. Location isn't great but we knew that in advance. Nice pool and leisure facilities and got a good few nights sleep so a good choice if you've got kids
the maldron in portlaois was lovely . the staff very friendly . the food very tasty , two negatives first was the water went for a good while so we wherent able to have showers or even flush the toilets . the receptionist did bring us up a jug of water when it was requested , and on the sunday morning there was a sickening smell at the jaccuzi we couldnt use it . also i felt like the lesure centrr could do with a good scrub .
found the hotel to be very good value for money, would recommend the hotel to a friend, the breakfast was good
I enjoyed having the pool almost to myself on a Friday evening. The facilities are ok, what you'd expect from a 3* hotel. The leisure center is a bonus.
We thouroghly enjoyed our stay. It was superb value for money. The staff and facilities at the hotel were excellent. We would defintley stay again.
we as a family love this hotel, and come back often, it's comfortable and homely and people are very friendly. The bar is the most expensive part! for us from the midlands anyway. Leisure centre is an added bonus which the kids love! right beside a food court which is very handy for the kids
Good quality hotel ,brilliant staff and a great leisure centre ,food is not bad and the breakfast is very good.Family room was comfortable and clean but very warm and noise from motorway prevented the window being opened but not a huge problem
very nice hotel lovely staff and spotless well done all
stayed at the maldron on the may bank holiday for 3 nights.staff were very pleasent.rooms and breakfast were grand.on the down side the restaurant was in the bar just 3 steps from floor level and was very bare and not very cosy.also there is no residence lounge .anna from dublin.
Enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The room was very comfortable and our meals were excellent. We will stay at this hotel again.
Myself and my 3 sisters brought our man here for a spa break for mothers day we found it to be a lovely and friendly hotel and only a short drive to the town.We are planning on making this a regular family trip
Very easy to get to this hotel off Motorway..I went to the hotel for 1 night with my husband..Our room was big but our bed was just 2 singles pushed together,it was not one bit comfortable,room was cold and with no extra blankets,pillows in the room it was not a very comfortable nights sleep at all..Service in the restaurant at dinner time was terrible..It was a Saturday night,busy and 2 waiting staff with some additional help from a manage from what i could see..Table was not cleared of starter plates when main courses arrived!Reception staff were welcoming and friendly..I would stay again tho as it is very accesible and close to portaloise..Although i would look for a better quality of room when booking!!
The hotel was nice. It stated in the information sheet in our room that an a la carte menu was available in the bar untill 10pm, however when we went to eat there it was only a carvery menu that was available, with very limited options ..
STAYED IN HOTEL LAST WEEKEND WITH MY 2 FRIENDS. BOOKED HOTEL BY ACCIDENT AS I THOUGHT IT WAS NEARER TOWN CENTRE. hOWEVER A SHORT TAXI RIDE TOOK US TO CITY CENTRE FOR EVENING ENTERTAINMENT AT LOW COST. i HAVE ONLY GOOD THINGS TO SAY ABOUT THIS HOTEL. tHE STAFF ARE REALLY VERY WELCOMING AND ATTENTIVE. FOOD WAS OF HIGH QUALITY AND THERE IS NO SCRIMPING WITH PORTIONS. LATE CHECK OUT WAS AVAILABLE TO US AT NO EXTRA COST. WEATHER OUTSIDE WAS REALLY COLD BUT ROOMS VERY VERY WARM AND COSY.
The room was nice and had everything you needed. The pool area was clean and we enjoyed a swim and the sauna. We found the lobby of the hotel to be drab and uninviting. We were not tempted to dine in the stir restaurant as the menu was limited and the room lacked atmosphere The breakfast was adequate. For bed and breakfast it was good value for money..
