City centre action doesn’t come much closer. The Maldron, like [node:176766], is right next door to the central bus and train station and is just seconds away from both the Millennium Stadium and the St David’s 2 retail complex.
Twin room users: let battle commence! All twin rooms at the Maldron come with a double and single bed so get ready to flip a coin, arm wrestle or just plain argue over who has the biggest bed. That said, the single beds are more than ample for a good night’s rest.
Families: let bookings commence! The aforementioned twins are ideal for a family of three while other rooms offer a sturdy pull out bed that’s much more substantial than the conventional, flimsy pull out beds older hotels are known for.
Couples should try to request a corner room thanks to their roomy, suite-like lay out and resplendent dual floor-to-ceiling action.
Step inside and step into tomorrow; Maldron’s chic black veneer gives the lobby a cool, upmarket flavour without ever feeling too formal or over-posh. The bar and restaurant on the first floor is amass with warm browns, purples and wood tones and is blessed with a hundred corners that suit the both private or lively moments.
Eating and drinking
The sprawling, window-lit bar makes an attractive proposition. As does the bar meal menu that offers a well selected range of light-to-indulgent daytime bites. As evening arrives, the restaurant comes alive with an equally attractive menu that celebrates local produce with a twist of traditional Irish tucker.
Staff are helpful, friendly, relaxed and clued up about the local facilities and attractions.
Who stays there
Maldron’s a very new hotel in the city so its regular visitors haven’t been established yet, but there’s an impressive emphasis on families and, as already established by its Irish counterparts, it’s a big hit with the sports fans.
WiFi is free, breakfast is £10 and parking in the local multi-storey is discounted.
