Stayed last night at the Maldron on Cardiff Lane as I was going to see Carmen at the Bord Gais Theatre. Its a great place to stay!. Rory, the trainee at checkin was very polite and professional. My room was very clean and the bed was fine for me. Very spacious room and bathroom. I wasn't overly impressed with tv but i don't know if they were having reception problems as some channels were fuzzy and felt they could have done with a few more channels. The breakfast was very nice with plenty of choice. Must mention another person, Martin!! He was so nice and friendly and went out of his way to be attentive to me (i use a stick to walk so it can be a bit awkward sometimes for me to get around). Carrying my tray, asking if i wanted tea or coffee while waiting for my taxi before i left. All the staff I encountered were very friendly and nice to me and to other guests. I would choose to stay there anytime and would encourage anyone who is going to the bord gais theatre for a concert, etc. to stay there as its a five minute walk to the theatre, the bar was lovely with a nice carvery the night i stayed there. I'll definately be back.! I wish all hotels had such pleasant staff who acted as if they enjoyed helping people, especially Martin from Dungiven!!!
