Nice breakfast

by Leanne on Oct 31 2019 08:38

We stayed for 2 nights, from the minute we arrived everything was super from the staff to the room and the facilities. We had breakfast and an evening meal included in our package and I can't fault a thing the evening meal was fabulous as was the breakfast on both mornings. My partner went for a massage in the onsite salon and thought it was amazing. We also used the pool area and just really enjoyed our weekend here would really recommend for a chill out weekend

by mary on Aug 20 2019 09:53

We had a wonderful weekend break at the Maldron hotel. It is in a very central location and ideal for visiting Ireland. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable and the food was wonderful.

There is not enough I can say about thus Hotel. Will definitely be returning. Staff excellent. Front desk staff were so friendly and helpful. Rooms spotless clean. I especially liked the complimentary bottle of water. Food was of an excellent standard. Plenty of choice for Breakfast. Great value for money Looking forward to returning soon.

by Karen Byrne on Jul 2 2018 10:47

Great time girl on reception was a credit to the maldron my husband booked the maldron again for fathers weekend

by Paul O'Reilly on Nov 30 2017 16:28

Simply brilliant. Hotel very comfortable (recently done up) Rooms clean and comfortable. Food great. But it is the staff who really make the difference. Whether it is Tom in the restaurant, Caroline on reception or Anna & Renata at breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble which leads to a very relaxing stay. Thanks for everything guys!

by David on Nov 20 2017 10:43

Loved our short stay here, but the pool was freezing, not the water but the air, you could see kids shivering around the sides, a strong cold breeze comes in probably from the air conditioning. That said, I see us staying again.

by reviewer17233887 on Nov 7 2017 18:19

Stayed for one night b&b with dinner. Clean and comfortable room with all required accessories. Very friendly, helpful and courteous staff. Fabulous food. Prices very reasonable. Unfortunately time didn't allow a visit to leisure centre this trip but will definitely visit again.

by Tracey Shanks on Nov 6 2017 15:34

We spent two days there over the midterm. I have to say it was a fantastic hotel, spotless clean, really friendly staff on check in, nice barman who was friendly and talkative, lovely leisure facilities, what can I say? I would definitely go back there again. My kids had a fantastic time, they went to the kids club both nights and had great fun. Thank you Maldron Hotel :)

by Mary on Sep 22 2017 23:03

I stayed in the Maldron Hotel in Portlaoise with my sister last weekend. We were greeted by a very friendly Receptionist who was highly professional and helpful. The room was comfortable, clean and well maintained. Plenty selections at breakfast and Dinners were delicious. It was a pleasure to meet Restaurant Manager Tom he has such a great manner and personality and is outstanding at his work. The leisure center was closed for renovations but we were given the option to go to another Hotel. We will definitely recommend this Maldron Hotel to our friends and look forward to returning at a later stage. I give it FIVE Star rating

by Sheila on Jul 13 2017 19:02

Stayed in the Maldron Hotel in Portlaoise with 5 friends last weekend. We had a wonderful time everything was great. The food was fantastic, the staff were friendly and helpful and everything worked in the leisure center . All in all we fully enjoyed our weekend in the Maldron

by murramon on Jun 19 2017 13:18

Pool area may need a bit of work, upgrading. Family room was plenty big and v comfy. Food was extremely good! Overall v good stay.

by Mandy O'Sullivan on Nov 29 2016 10:45

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.

by Martina on Nov 7 2016 20:08

lovely hotel, staff where very nice, enjoyed the swimming pool

by Liam Coghlan on Nov 5 2016 12:30

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.

by pjb on Nov 5 2016 11:23

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.

by Sinead on Sep 27 2016 10:48

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.

by molough on Sep 13 2016 13:04

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.

by Cat on Aug 16 2016 10:49

Hotel was grubby, really understaffed in the restaurant, basic accomodation!

by Liam Coghlan on Jul 18 2016 10:00

B & B excellent. Will use again.

by Fiona M on Jul 14 2016 21:40

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.

by Linda on Jun 19 2016 10:00

Excellent family place yo stay in summer especially! Great facilities great location. The website pix don't do it justice x

by Caroline Kiely on Jun 7 2016 10:42

Nice stay, rooms lovely and clean, staff friendly, pool area a little cold. Would stay again.

by jan on Apr 9 2016 22:42

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 and restaurant being managed by the same person...running all over the place.

by Napolean on Apr 5 2016 11:17

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 :-).

by Clodagh on Apr 4 2016 10:47

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 . Clodagh Browne 1st April 2016

by reviewer64731919 on Feb 29 2016 10:53

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.

by Livio Pesce on Feb 23 2016 12:52

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..

by Andy on Nov 10 2015 11:40

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

by reviewer24039426 on Oct 16 2015 10:55

Hotel staff very friendly, good value rooms - size -clean; gym facility excellent; Breakfast was of very poor quality - sorry not up to standard

by Ellie on Oct 13 2015 11:04

Spa treatment was great and the girls were lovely. All staff at the hotel reception bar staff were lovely. Food was absolutely terrible!

by Sinead on Sep 2 2015 01:59

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.

by Lee on Sep 1 2015 23:30

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

by Sharon on Aug 25 2015 11:28

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.

by Kayleigh kenny on Jul 28 2015 16:31

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,.
