Stayed here for a nite en route to Dublin. Great hotel. Center of everything and walking distance to everything. Rooms were clean, good size, and free wifi. Would have liked to stay longer. Highly recommended

The positives are it was spacious and clean. The negatives were small things like cheap bathrobes, no place to hang a towel or bathrobe while your showering, the... More

The Malton is an exceptional hotel from the rooms to the staff. Everyone is friendly and always ready to assist in every way. The restaurant is fantastic, the food incredible and the wait staff friendly. The Bar/Cocktail Lounge is pure joy for a Pint or Cocktail in the afternoon/evening and the live small band is very nice as well. All... More

We booked early and got a good deal. The food was very good and the staff helpful and friendly. I liked the way The Malton catered for all age groups without intruding on each other. An indoor pool is always an attraction for me, so the pool enhanced our stay.
