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.

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

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.

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

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 .

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 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 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 ..

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..

I had a very pleasant stay in this hotel. Food was fantastic, and the hotel staff were very friendly. It was great to have a kids pool too. The only thing I thought the prices charged in the bar were top end dublin hotel prices. The reception staff were great. That would be my only criticism.

I'm very happy to write a review on the Maldron Hotel. We arrived early and I just needed to confirm my booking but the receptionist (Sinead) searched till she found a room that was ready and so we had access immediately. We asked about places to walk and she advised us on possibilities which was exactly what we needed - Emo. We came back to a lovely relaxing time in the Leisure Centre followed by a delicious meal served by friendly staff. On check-out we again asked about directions to Slieve Bloom and again Sinead took time to give us directions - (I think she phoned her mother to get the perfect route). I'm so pleased with the Maldron that I have booked my next break in the Maldron in Wexford. The great park of all of this was the affordable price. If using my review for the website please do not use my surname.

Upon entry to our hotel room, we were hit with an awful smell of smoke. We are non-smokers so found this horrible. We had checked in at 5 and even if the last people had checked out at 12 the smell was so strong in the room with the windows closed. I rang down to reception and asked if we could be moved. After 15 minutes we were moved to a room on the ground floor beside the pool. Thankfully the room didnt smell of smoke but there was a vent outside our window that buzzed on and off all night. I had mentioned it when I was checking out but the person behind the desk was not interested as the hotel lobby with busy with runners. The Breakfast was ok, although it was self service we had to wait on more bread, butter & glasses for juice. I think this was because there only seemed to be two ladies doing the breakfast shift. The hotel is nice and clean just these few things put a damper on our night there.

Not bad for a 3 star. Good size family room - could be cleaner and tvs definitely need to be upgraded. The FOH staff should be highly commended on their customer service skills. Arrived to an empty reception desk (he was in a room assisting with one of the dodgy tvs which we were about to discover for ourselves) however within a minute a barman had appeared, explained the situation and offered us a drink by which time the receptionist had reappeared. Breakfast and dinner both of a good standard and again service fast and efficient. Well done.

Located about five minutes drive but 15-20 mins walk from town. Nice quiet location with plenty of food outlets in the same estate. However as our package included dinner we went to hotel restaurant. Lovely food and good servings, however the a la carte menu was a bit limited. Breakfast was very nice with plenty of cereals etc. All self service except the hot food. The room was clean and nice and airy. The bed was very comfortable and we had a good nights sleep. The TV was very limited in the number of working channels. Thankfully the hotel wifi was very good so we used our laptop for entertainment. the pool, jacuzzi, sauna & steam room were grand and it was nice to relax there. it's a hotel to sleep in but has very little character to it otherwise. Good value.

I wish to thank the staff for there wonderful welcome in Portlaois .They feed use both and looked after use very well.The rooms were well equipped and also comfortable.It was both are first time in Portlaois and in the Moldron Hotel.The only problem we found was there was no ATM and there was no way of getting phone credit in the hotel.The gym was wonderful and the were very nice.Had we brought swimwear we know the swim in the pool would be enjoyable.Our stay was short and the town friendly we would never leave.Thank you again for the wonderful stay from the both of use.I would give a star rating of three stars Thomas Carpenter.

Hotel has a budget feeling about it. It is clean and has a good spa area, but reception, rooms and bar/restaurant lack atmosphere. The location with a food court next door and a massive car park is not very appealing.
