Reviewed 3 August 2009

What a dissapointment. Having looked forward to our stay for some time we were so dissapointed. The lobby is beautiful and the bar area, however, all goes down hill after that. We were firstly given a room that stank of smoke and there was a querious stain on the carpet near the bed! We were moved to a slighly better room! The staff were helpful and the bar food was good. Our dinner was good but nothing exeptional. The pool area is poor however the grounds of the hotel are worth a strool around. Will not be staying there again. Over rated and expensive there are alot better hotels in Killarney in the same category for a better price, comfort, views and relaxation. Choose them!

  • Liked — Bar food and relaxing in the looby
  • Disliked — The room the pool area the chiped paing on skirtins ect

The Malton was a quiet refuge from the noises of Killarney. We wanted to be centrally
located in a good -sized town so The Malton served us well. We had a beautifully quiet
and well appointed room. The staff was most helpful too. We arranged a dinner at the last
minute, at Pepper's, their upscale dining room, for our friends' 40th anniversary. The maitre d'etre effeciently organized a decorated pastry for us - very nice touch that came with champagne! Very happy with the hotel all around.

My room was good-sized, the location was good in terms of exploring local tourist spots such as Knockross Garden and the shopping district/main street of Killarney. One minor problem I had was in connecting to the wireless internet in the Library one time, when it had worked the day before. One major problem I had with the restaurant: The food was good at the hotel, but the restaurant staff gave my party a lot of grief about where to sit for breakfast ... it was because we were part of a CIE tour group -- they want 'tour people' to sit in a certain part of the dining room, and we wanted to be near the courtyard window; they only relented after I made a big stink about 'why can we not sit where we want, we are paying customers too!', etc.

My partner and I stayed at the Malton in early June, trip was arranged to meet up with old friends from the USA. From the very start arranging our stay and working out the best deal for all of us (we were eight in all) the service I received from the Malton staff was excellent, emails were answered promptly and politely. We arrived quite late after a long drive and needed some food, this was all provided without any fuss and served in the very comfortable bar. Our room was spacious, ground floor with views to garden, it was a deluxe room and had everything we needed. What made it for us though was the dining, the breakfast was very good, amongst the best we have had in the many hotels we have stayed in. We had dinner in the hotel on two nights and it was excellent, we could not fault it and the staff were so obliging.
The Malton is town centre so minutes walk into the heart of Killarney with great pubs and shops. We would definitely stay at the Malton if we are in the region again. Top marks to them and thankyou to all their staff.

We recently stayed at The Malton to celebrate a friends wedding.

The hotel itself is beautiful in lovely grounds, with a lovely swimming pool. Our room was very spacious and comfortable.

The quality of the customer service from this hotel is outstanding. Having missed our flight from London, we had to cancel our first nights accommodation very late in the evening on the day we were supposed to check in. When we called to let the hotel know, they were very accommodating and did not charge us for the room. We arrived the next morning at 8am, and our room was ready and waiting. Room service breakfast was delivered even though room service breakfast has officially finished.

The staff are exceptionally helpful and nothing is too much bother for them.

Highly recommend.

The hotel is beautiful and is in a central location close to everything. The lobby and the public areas of the hotel are also very beautiful. There is parking on site. The rooms are not as beautiful as you would imagine - considering the way the hotel looks from the outside and in the public areas. There is no internet in the rooms. The town is great.

We stayed two nights here. There is an old part and a new part to the hotel. We had a room in the new part. It was good sized, quiet, and very light and airy. A downside is that there is no in-room internet available, although free wi-fi is available in the lobby and sitting areas. A free internet terminal is in the library. The hotel has a great location adjacent to a large park and only about a block from the main streets of Killarney. Our only complaint is that one night we were served dirty utensils with our dinner. When we complained, the server said "They're just old". We showed her the old food stuck to several of the utensils were were given- she just walked off and got us new ones.
