“Very happy with Malton as wedding venue”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Although it is some time since we had our wedding in the Malton, we were so impressed with their service and professionalism that I am determined to finally write this overdue review. We had checked out all the other hotels in Killarney (and some elsewhere in nearby counties). But from the moment we met Emer, the wedding coordinator in the Malton we knew we wanted to celebrate with our friends and family in the Malton. The facilities are excellent. The hotel was booked up for larger weekend weddings for almost a year (a very good sign) but having been guests at relatives' weddings in the Malton and been much impressed by the food and facilities we changed our dates to a summer Thursday. We made the right choice. Emer and her colleagues made our preparations stress free - we had complete trust in the hotel and indeed, our visits there and phone conversations were always a pleasure and a joy. Emer helped us with everything - decoration, entertainment, reminding us when we had to make decisions - we were in safe hands. The hotel is obviously used to catering for and planning for weddings and it showed in all the little details on the day - and they did a really good rate for the guests. We really had very little to do except taste the menu and try out some wine - there was no work involved for the couple getting married except to sit back and enjoy! The staff were full of good humour right up to last late drinks. The gardens were great for photographs and the ballroom fitted over 350, although smaller weddings are catered for also. As the wedding ballroom is separate from the main hotel wedding guests have the best of both worlds and can celebrate without disturbing other guests. The breakfast next day was great and we got an extension for a late breakfast. The wedding was on a Thursday so we could prolong the celebrations and the lunch for close relatives next day was again excellent, and in a private room. We ourselves stayed for a few days after the wedding (as did some of the guests who made it an excuse for a mini break and spent tme visiting Killarney's other attractions ). John the chef was exceptionally helpful and flexible: it is clear he loves his job and knows what works foodwise at a wedding.After our menu tasting (and at the end of what must have been a long day for him) he spent over half an hour with us chatting about our ideas for the menu. And we were given a lovely suite on our wedding night. All in all I recommend this hotel highly for weddings: the bookings speak for themselves I guess. If the locals like it, then you can't go wrong!! Incidentally, my sister in law organised my hen for the Ross which is a smaller sister hotel, and this also exceeded anything we could have expected.

Room Tip: Just ask when you ring, there are lots of rooms in the hotel

My husband and I stayed in the Malton on the October bank holiday weekend. The first tip I can give is to ring the hotel directly to get the best deal, we knocked €30 off the price and got an evening meal added in to the online price.

The hotel itself is beautiful, impressive from the minute you drive in the gates. The welcome is warm, both from the open fire and the friendly staff, and the lobby is beautiful.

We had dinner and breakfast in the dining room and can highly recommend both. The selection for breakfast was one of the best I've seen...try the pancakes

The pool area is nice, with a lovely walkway down to it...unfortunately there was a wedding on In the ballroom beside the pool (incidentally I had a peep in and it looked beautiful) which meant that if you are ducking down to the spa or pool in your trackie, you tightened up walking alongside the well dressed wedding guests!!(not a huge problem, more of an observation).

The location of the Malton could not be better, right beside the retail outlet, and literally minutes walk into the main part of town.

My only complaint about the malton is that I was disappointed in my room, now don't get me wrong, it was huge, spotless, and adequate. But that was it, it was adequate...for such a beautiful hotel, I was expecting a room with character, but once you closed the bedroom door you could be in any hotel in the country, there was nothing setting these rooms apart from your regular 2-3star hotel.

I hope this doesnt sound too harsh as in all, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in the malton, and will hopefully return. The staff, location and the actual hotel itself make it worth a visit.

Stayed here for a wedding. The food was great. The breakfast the following morning was top class and very fresh, the best I have had in a long while!!! The staff are very friendly. We stay here again and plan on buying family and friends gift vouchers for here.

From the rapid and painless check-in to the equally efficient check-out this is an extremely well run hotel and a great credit to the management. The public rooms are beautifully decorated and very pleasureable to sit in. The dining room is magnificent with its fine vaulted ceiling. Both in the bar and in the dining room the food is very good and very fairly priced. The cheapest bedrooms are a bit plain but comfortable and meet all of one's requirements. My only caveat is that at breakfast the waitresses can sometimes be slightly off-hand and a wee bit disorganised - but the breakfast itself is excellent. This hotel represents great value - especially the mid-week breaks.

Old charm, personality, great location, it has everything.

I have stay here several times. Most of the rooms have been renovated and they are cleaned to a high standard. However, it is the rest of the hotel that wins you over. The charming reception and turf fires, the library, the period restaurant, the attractive bar etc...

However, the staff are trained to such a high standard that you do not wish to leave. They seem to be like a family and the faces do not change from year to year which shows a happy work environment.

The hotel has the added advantages of being beside the train station and not being in the town centre (but only an extremely short walk away).

As always The Malton went beyond fulfilling my expectations.

Our room on the forth floor was very comfortable offering a fantastic view of the mountains.

The food both at breakfast and in the bar was excellent and great service too.

Even though it was a bank holiday weekend and the hotel was busy it never felt full and there was always plenty of room to be found in either the comfortable reading room or the Punch Bowl Bar with it's roaring fires.

Of course, no trip to the Malton would be complete without a chat and joke with Mary (the lady from the tv). Mary was very helpful in getting us dinner reservations in a busy restaurant outside of the hotel on a busy bank holiday sunday. As my mother, another regular visitor to the hotel says "she is the hotel's best asset".

Looking forward to my next visit to the Malton. Thanks once again to Mary and Conor for making our weekend so enjoyable.
