Great Southern Killarney
Ranked #15 of 38 Hotels in Killarney
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

This was our second year in a row staying at the Malton. We came down from Newry as I wanted to propose to the girlfriend in Kerry. The second visit was just as good as the first and we will be back next year for a third.

Great grub in the restaurant and the bar. The bar staff are friendly and one wee lad didn't mind serving us until pretty late on the Friday night when we were celebrating the engagement. Good banter. So fair play to him. I'd recommend the new whiskey corner and the wine rooms too. The card system for the wine room is very handy.

Leisure area is great and the fiance enjoyed her various treatments and said the girls were really friendly. A swim and a rest in the jacuzzi defeats any hangover.

The hotel itself is very handy for Killarney and as a base to explore Kerry itself. Our room was great too. Big, clean and had a nice view. Could maybe do with more modern tvs but thats really the only negative thing I can think of.

Definitely recommend it and we will be back next year to celebrate our one year engagement.

Thanks!

We stayed at The Malton recently and we couldn't praise it and the staff in particular, more highly! We were celebrating an anniversary occasion and both the reception and kitchen staff really went out of their way to make our stay with them very special. Everyone was warm and welcoming and keen to meet our needs.
The hotel is beautiful, full of old world charm mingled with modern glamour. It is in a great central location, ideal for parking, catching a train or shopping in the town centre. The reception has several relaxing spots and lounges surrounding the lobby which are visually very interesting and appealing. The lift appeared instantly at every push and glided us to our luxuriously stylish and very comfortable rooms, which made us wish we had booked in for longer. We had a fabulous meal in the dining room. The food was top notch and what a venue, with high vaulted ceiling, antique light fittings and bay windows overlooking the landscaped gardens. Make sure to leave plenty of time for breakfast as the selection is huge and you'll feel like lingering over a top up'!
Thank you all at the Malton, you deserve every good review.

We stayed in The Malton last week and had a lovely experience. We travelled by train from Dublin and were delighted to find the hotel just across the road from the train station and also very close to the town centre. As soon as we walked in the door we were greeted and dealt with very professionally and shown to our lovely room on the third floor. The room was great, lovely view of the gardens, big, bright & very clean. The staff could not have been more helpful both in the bar & diningroom. Food was excellent on both nights. If we did have to have a negative it would be that we got the same menu for both nights, we would have expected a different menu each night. Having said that, the food was excellent. There is a lovely athmosphere around the place. We wanted a 2 night relaxing break in a nice hotel and that's what we got and more. We will be recommending this hotel and we will hopefully be returning to it again.

Great hotel, bedrooms big and airy with great size bathrooms, staff very professional and courteous, nothing was a problem to them. Dinner in the dining room is excellent and on a par with any 6 star hotel in the world. This hotel is the place to stay when you are in Killarney.

Room Tip: The rooms at the rear have absolutely no noise and are quite big for hotels and very comfortable.

Put up in this hotel by CIE during our eight day tour. Excellent accommodations. Would definitely stay here again if in Killarney. Don't miss. Wonderful small reading room off of the rear garden. If you are a photographer, you can spend hours on the grounds with a camera.
