Wonderful staff.

Posted Jul 21, 2015
Hard to find hotel with terrible parking. Nice location for walking around town. Clean and comfortable beds. The shower goes hot to cold to hot again etc... the elevators are tiny and slow. The food was good. The best feature of this hotel was lovely accommodating staff. Would go back for that alone.

Short Stay

Posted Jul 8, 2015
Pros: Good location, walk to town. Loved the bed, so comfortable, like sleeping on a cloud. They give you a little box of chocolates!!
Cons: The elevator was very small, could only fit 3 people and luggage had to make 2 trips since there were 6 people in our party.
Location: Only had time for dinner, was able to walk to town, which was a plus since we did not have a car.
We were not there very long. We checked in late, around 7pm. Went to dinner, had breakfast in the morning and left by 9 am.

The Hotel was close to the buses and the town centre. The staff we're wonderful only too happy to help with anything. The resturant served lovely meals. There is a gym and a heated swimming pool. The room was really spacious and newly renovated.

Our one night stay was very good. The problem was finding the hotel. No street numbers given to put in the GPS.

A convenient functional - but bland hotel in Cork

Posted Jun 5, 2015
Pros: Reception staff were charming & helpful. Breakfast Team were good spirited and hard working. The hotel is excellently placed for Cork centre.
Cons: The cleanliness of the room. And in our specific case the layout of the room was uncomfortable with the bed actually upstairs from the bathroom.
Location: I recommend both Market House & Electric Restaurants for excellent meals served by charming & willing staff. And a trip to Blarney Castle is a must!
The Maldron Hotel is like thousands of its kind around the world - adequate, functional, largely geared towards business people, impersonal in that it could be anywhere - & as such it's acceptable. However - our room was peculiarly appointed in that it was on 2 levels. You had to climb 3 relatively steep stairs to the 'bed area' which meant those stairs needed to be negotiated during the night in order to go to the bathroom. For safety's sake we were obliged to leave the bathroom light on which meant that the hum of the extractor fan kept us awake all night! The room was stuffy & the windows were so high that even my 1.9m tall husband had to stand on a chair to open for some air. The TV hanging on the wall was in such a position that same tall husband hit his head when passing! The room was dusty & that didn't alter after the maid had apparently made it up the following day! Nor did she take away a used mug with a dry tea bag stuck to the side of it or refurbish us with spare loo roll & clean drinking glasses in the bathroom! There is more to being 4* than the level of ammenities provided! On the up side - Lisa on reception who checked us in was utterly delightful & helpful with advice about where to eat & the breakfasts were excellent, plentiful, very varied & served by smiling staff despite the large coach parties of guests they were dealing with. In the final analysis - would I go there again? No! I prefer something more unique & less attempting to be something it's not!

Perfect location, friendly staff, updated portions

Posted May 31, 2015
Our group of 5 stayed 2 nights, Lisa the front desk agent went it of her way to accommodate us with all of our questions, the view from our room was glorious, everything was beyond satisfactory for us. I would 100% stay here again.

Excellent hotel, staff could be more friendly..

Posted May 28, 2015
Pros: Location, cleanliness, facilities, food.
Cons: Teach your staff some customer service skills. Smiling is free!
Location: Check out Oliver Plunkett's for excellent fish 'n chips.
Everything about this hotel is fantastic but the staff is unsmiling, unwelcoming and a bit rude. Maybe I am just used to being greeted, acknowledged and at least not treated as an inconvenience when I'm in a hotel this nice? Anyway, the rooms, location, and cleanliness make it worth it. Stay here when in Cork!

Great Hotel for Cork City Break

Posted Apr 28, 2015 on Hotels
Spent 4 nights at the hotel recently and had a great time in the City. The hotel facilities are great and its ideal location to stay in the city and is a short walk into the city center. We visited all local sights while there and had a great time. The hotel is great value and well worth a visit.
