“excellent lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

Visited this Hotel for Lunch recently and this was the first time I have been there since it was re-furbished to a very high degree. The Bar lunch was excellent and the service was first class and reasonably priced.Fully recommened.

Myself and 3 other friends stayed here for our little "staff outing" a few weeks ago. From the great review from our friend who stayed here during the summer we decided to stay here. From the moment as we entered the doors until we left, we enjoyed our stay. The rooms were spacious and clean. We all got rooms on the same floor. Even though one of the girls room door wouldn't work the matter was quickly sorted out. We felt like we knew the staff before the two days were finished! The highlight of our stay was definetly the breakfast, the pancakes are amazing and the buffet table is impressive and leaves you with lots to choose from. But the dinner was amazing. We could not fault one bit of it. It was just perfect and the setting was lovely. We enjoyed our stay here and will def be back again in the future. After all we only live in the next county!

currently my wife and i are staying at the malton hotel for a 2-night holiday and we are loving it. we initially got the a standard room, but was really disappointed with it. it was not the 4-star room we were hoping for. so, we opted to upgrade our room. and Amish, at reception, promptly offered us an upgrade to a junior suite for a good offer. this suite is definitely a must-try.

so far, we have tried the leisure center and everything's great. looking forward for tomorrow's breakfast and the 4-course dinner.

Just left The Malton after a business trip, dragged ourselves away from the very comfortable sofas beside the fire in the beautifully Christmas decorated bar and strolled to the train. Great food in the bar both nights and the best Irish breakfast ever looking out over the mountains. Leisure centre clean, good pool and steam room. Friendly staff who sorted out all our needs. Urgently looking for more business reasons to return!

I have just arrived home from Killarney having (reluctantly) left the Malton hotel after a family wedding on Friday. Everything from the elegant Christmas decorations to the friendly service of those on reception was amazing. That was only the beginning with regards to the wedding the bride and groom were treated so well as were all of us as guests, the food quality and service at the meal was second to none and anything that we needed with regards to parking needs, assistance with baggage etc was handled quickly and efficiently. We stayed Friday and Saturday night and so had much dealing with all staff throughout the days and nights, the staff were the most efficient, friendly, helpful and nice bunch of people that made us feel so welcome and comfortable that I feel it could not be left unsaid. To all at the Malton hotel I would like to commend you and say well done and to anybody looking for a getaway in the heart of Killarney town with representatives of what the real Irish welcome is.........them head for the Malton. Thank you all!

MaltonManagement, Manager at The Malton Hotel, responded to this review, December 8, 2012
Dear Guest,

Thank you for your recent review and I am disappointed that your recent stay was not as enjoyable as it should have been. I am delighted that the ladies were able to reorganise your bedroom and I have spoken to the Accommodation Manager about the uncormfortable bed your husband experienced. I have equally spoken to the Restaurant Manager about the poor experience you recieved in the breakfast room.
Certainly all of the issues can all be solved very quickly and we have recieved a large amount of positive comments regarding breakfast and all our staff in the hotel this year.
On behalf of the Malton we would like to apologise for your dissapointment and I would be confident that these concerns are a one off and I would hope that when returning to Killarney in the future that you would consider the Malton.
Please contact me directly as I would be delighted to discuss the issues over the phone or in person.
Regards,
Paul O'Sullivan
Deputy General Manager
