Excellent hotel.! Very friendly staff and very accommodating. Beautiful rooms and a lovely breakfast is provided in a very tranquil quaint atmosphere within the dining room. i will certainly be back again.!

by Tom on May 2 2017 17:08

All in all a very pleasant trip for us. Small issue, breakfast slightly overcooked, parking at a premium. I would have no issues in recommending you Hotel to friends and relations, and hope to visit this area and hotel in the near future. Kind Regards Tom

We really enjoyed the stay. Very central and would come back. Staff were very friendly especially in the breakfast room. The bar could do some with background music.

by estvanio on Nov 11 2016 12:00

Convenient location. We managed to get use of the car park which was a bonus. Straightforward hotel. Clean, without unnecessary frills. Good value on the day

by macscallywag on Oct 24 2016 10:54

What a nice hotel, bright, spacious, so clean, spacious rooms with high ceilings & loads of light from the big windows, very comfortable beds, a stroll & you're right in the heart of the city, would benefit from a little more parking, but that aside, I would highly recommend this hotel & will definitely being staying again.

by John G Hanna on Oct 9 2016 20:28

I enjoyed my stay here, the location is excellent, breakfast is superb. But I didn't spend much time in the room as Cork City is just a walk away. Would recommend this hotel to anyone and look forward to coming back again, hopefully soon!

by Seamus on May 13 2016 11:15

Great location, high quality rooms, nice decor, friendly service. Only negative is parking, it's very limited and very tight spaces.

by Patricia McCreanor on May 12 2016 09:27

We had a fantastic overnight stay in the Maldron in Cork. Such a super location, just as advertised. Staff so friendly and facilities were great. Will definitely stay again and have already recommended it to friends.

by Claire on May 10 2016 09:15

The highlight of the bar food was the chips , slow with drink orders , food was average even. Room nice and clean , shower kept changing tempature . Central location which was a plus.breakfast was cold not overly impressed, the best part of the stay was the barman on Friday night residents bar, we were the only ones there and he was very friendly. That's it really I wouldn't be returning or recommending

Great location, lovely staff and very good breakfast!

by Antonia Esmonde on Mar 21 2016 15:20

We enjoyed our stay here, the location is excellent, breakfast is superb! Our only niggle was that our hotel room looked out onto the corridor across and therefore we had to keep the curtains closed at all times for privacy, but we didn't spend much time in the room as Cork city is bustling. Would recommend this hotel to anyone and look forward to coming back again, hopefully soon!

by loyola on Mar 20 2016 12:10

We stayed in the Maldron for two nights, it was a very enjoyable experience. The Staff were very friendly and helpful, the room had a fantastic view of Shandon and was very clean and bright.

by Cecelia on Feb 26 2016 11:01

Lovely stay. Hotel is modern, clean and comfortable. Very good facilities, friendly & accommodating staff and good food. Location is walking distance to everything in Cork City. Note that there is limited parking onsite. Would definitely stay there again.

by Deborah on Feb 24 2016 10:49

Had a really pleasant stay at the maldron. We had an evening meal and it was gorgeous ! Wasn't even expecting if to be so nice. The breakfast was also really good. Our room was clean and the staff were really more then helpful. An over all lovely stay ... No complaints

by liam on Dec 22 2015 12:28

Excellent location the staff were very friendly and efficient.There was a problem with our original room but we were given an alternative room immediately . I would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay here again.

by Maura C on Dec 9 2015 16:26

Stayed at the Maldron with my husband and 2 children on the 6th December, the hotel was excellent and in a great location within walking distance to the City. The hotel bedroom was spacious and in excellent condition and the hotel staff most friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend the Maldron Hotel!

by anne on Dec 1 2015 14:34

We had a great stay here on a Saturday night at the end of November. The music in the bar was great, with a great atmosphere. Lovely room very clean and great breakfast. Lovely staff. I loved getting my own tea, as it was hot when I wanted it. The only negative was the parking, We parked up the road as car park was full and got held in for approx. two hours on the Sunday morning by another car. Anne

by AMQ on Nov 29 2015 13:15

Every member of staff was so welcoming and friendly. The room was a very big double room with a really comfy bed. Breakfast was lovely too. All in all very good value. The hotel is so convenient for shopping & the opera house- I would not stay anywhere else in Cork city. The little pub, Buckleys, at the end of the road was a little gem too. We'll be back....

by YC on Nov 24 2015 14:26

The location of this hotel was excellent, very close to everything, however parking was an slight issue with very little parking at the hotel. I found the service very good and overall it was great value. I would only say that the hotel room was a little cold when we arrived but it warmed up.

by reviewer28904206 on Nov 9 2015 19:40

We had a very enjoyable stay on November 6 2015. The bedroom was very spacious, clean and warm. Breakfast was very good. All the staff we met were cheerful and helpful. We will definitely be back. Mary, Dublin

by Catherine on Oct 30 2015 14:14

Stayed here with my husband and teenage sons. Booked two rooms a twin room and a double room, have to say both rooms were lovely. We had a meal that evening and breakfast the following morning the food was really nice and great value. All the staff we met were very friendly. Will definitely go going back in the future. Hotel is in a great position for shopping in town or a visit to the Cork Opera House .

Stayed there 2 nights September 1 and 2. We enjoyed our stay. The new manager was on the ball keeping an eye on everything. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Room spotless. Food was good. The atmosphere was delightful all the staff working together to make sure you enjoyed your stay there. Annie and Brenda, Clonmel annie and Brenda

by Pat on Aug 19 2015 10:51

We had a really good time, We have been there before will in all probability go again. The staff are friendly & helpful & the service is very good. The only thing that would be helpful is if the number of parking spaces could be increased at the hotel itself.

by Albert Hansa on Jun 12 2015 20:23

We loved everything, million dollar view from our room, location and best you can get fish&chips at the restaurant! Wonderful experience! Would stay again! Albert and Alex

This is a 3 star Hotel it was my second stay here with my wife on a two night break to Cork City location good only 5/10 mins to city center ,Staff were very helpful and friendly,We were in room 408 no view but room large and clean great showers ,Dining area re done looked nice and clean very good breakfast nice selection of Cereals,Fruit Breads and lovely cooked breakfast good service from staff will stay here again.

by Gery Atric on Mar 8 2015 09:50

Had two stays in the Maldron recently, the hotel is only 5 mins from the city, yet its a quite location. The staff are very help full and friendly. We had a large clean room. The food lets the Maldron down big time, the breakfast tastes like it was cooked two days previous, we had dinner two nights and the food was awful. I will stay there again but will dine out next time .

Hi My daughter and I stayed there in Sept. The hotel was difficult to find, parking was also limited. I had to park on the street. The hotel is shabby and needs upgrade. Food in bar was good but breakfast was very poor and limited choices. The hotel staff were very helpful, friendly and professional.

by angela on Aug 10 2014 21:01

The location of the hotel is really great, it is only a ten minutes walk into the city centre. The hotel itself is very old fashioned and could do with a make over. Carpets are dirty, pool area has seen better days. Well, if there would be any hot water in the morning it wouldn't be too bad... The breakfast selection is extremely poor.

by Helen Of Troy on Jun 21 2014 20:20

location was perfect, staff very pleasant and helpful, had use of leisure club, free wifi,,i thought the furniture was out dated, we would certainly stay there again, very good value price wise.

by paddy on Jun 1 2014 22:50

stayed one night 29/5/2014 the price was very reasonable. the meal included in the price was delicious. the girl that took the order was very helpful with our requests. the staff were very friendly. on the minus side, the room was overlooking a roof on one side. the other side was the city with not a very pleasant view. the room was very small for two people. very noisy during the day due to the traffic. would not stay there again.

by Hils on May 25 2014 11:37

We stayed in the maldron on 22/05/2014, hotel staff were very nice and friendly. We were in a small attic style room the bed was not very comfortable the furniture very old and badly marked and in dire need of a change to update the room the carpet was very stained even though it was non smoking room there we're burn marks on the carpet. We ate in the restaurant and the food was great. The hotel overall needs a complete makeover as there is a lot of unnecessary cosmetic damage like broken tiles etc. thing that would be easy to fix. I don't think I would stay there again.

by Anne on Mar 11 2014 16:58

We enjoyed our stay in the Maldron Hotel.The rooms are lovely and very clean.The menu is very good and the food is excellent.The staff are very efficient and friendly.The hotel is very central to the city centre and shopping. We would stay there again.

by Caroline McMahon Roche on Mar 10 2014 13:32

by Jimco. on Dec 14 2013 19:57

We stayed one night and were very satisfied with our room and the breakfast. The hotel is very convenient for the city centre and the shops. Great to have free parking as well. Will come again.

by Kay Hatton on Dec 12 2013 08:29

Was really pleased with our stay. Rooms clean and comfortable. Dinner excellent. Breakfast very good. Staff lovely and helpful. Central location. Excellent value. Will definately stay there again. Thank you.

by Joy on Oct 24 2013 16:53

Staff really friendly and very helpful, food was delicious, and room cosy. The only downside was that I thought that the changing rooms in the leisure centre were a little grubby, but the pool was great! We travelled by bus and the hotel was only a short distance away and very convenient for the town.

by Tntmallon on Oct 11 2013 23:23

Unfortunately when we arrived the hotel hadn't our booking. Denis on reception found alternative accommodation in the Montenotte for 1 night. He also organised one of the staff to guide us directly to this hotel as it is quite confusing to navigate Cork city. Our deal was for b&b & dinner for 2 adults and as an apology the Maldron gave us the same for our child for both nights and of course covered the costs in the Montenotte where we had an Excellent evening meal and enjoyed the leisure centre. Our preference would have been to remain in this hotel but we had to return to the Maldron for our last night. We were not disappointed with our stay there where we had a lovely room with a view of the Shandon church and enjoyed the leisure centre and meals. The friendliness and professionalism of the staff in both hotels was top notch but particularly the Maldron which I felt was more child friendly. The Maldron is also within a comfortable walking distance of Cork city and I would recommend it.

by Peter Rudge on Oct 8 2013 18:07

Staff: Friendly and helpful Room: Bed very comfortable, plenty of towels but room was a little on the small side, very little room for maneuver, although our friends room was huge so I suppose it's pot-luck. The room was clean, everything worked. Amenities: Good Dining room lacked atmosphere, more of a feeling of a canteen Food: Both starters and desserts were very good and the main course was good

by Annie on Sep 13 2013 18:24

My friend and I both enjoyed our stay in the Maldron. The food was excellent value for the early bird dinner,4 courses for less than 20 euro and a good choice. the staff were very helpful and courteous. The room was spotless and spaceous. Exactly where I requested it to be IIt is difficult to mention one staff member in particular but Darren remembered me from my last stay there, it is nice to be remembered. Annie / Brenda, Clonmel. 3 stars

by Helena on Sep 6 2013 09:32

Our arrival was greeted with very friendly staff at the reception desk this followed through the hotel from the restaurant to the leisure centre. The bedroom was comfortable but could do with an updating. The food was beautiful and great value in both the restaurant and the Bells Bar. It is a pity the car park is not bigger. The proximity to the city centre is super just a 10 min walk away. We definitely will stay again.

by Kari on Jun 9 2013 12:40

Very good hotel,not ur usual generic stuff,very Friendly staff,parking in the hotel in pretty poor Doh,not enough car park spaces !!

by Limerick on May 8 2013 11:05

Average 3 star hotel. The restaurant staff were distracted by a large tour group and a little dismissive at dinner. The waitress supervising breakfast was rude. The hotel itself was clean. The leisure receptionist was very friendly and helpful. The swimming pool was nice. Smell of mold from steam room was concerning, I do not believe mold spores are a health benefit!

by T & C Wexford on Apr 11 2013 12:46

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend break and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The city centre is only a few minutes walk away for shopping, restaurants and great nightlife. We had a double room which we found large and spacious with a comfy bed, Breakfast was lovely with a wide choice We would definitely stay again.
