Changed from the Summer
I stayed in the Maldron for three nights during the summer with US relatives. We were very impressed with the Maldron Hotel sandy Road.. In fact I changed my allegiance to another Hotel. Unfortunately my stay at the Maldron this time was not up to the same standard as in the summer. 1. The breakifast was cold 2. The mattress was dated 3. I had to send the chowder back to be re heated even after telling the waitress that I needed it hot....

Ok it was very nice hotel but because I am used to North American standards: no conditioner, no shower cap, no free coffee, I know not a big deal but when you travel on a red eye you get frustrated when the little things are not available. The cleaning ladies left my used coffee cups and didn’t take garbage? Also on my first morning they woke me up knocking and opening door at 8/9 am??? Anyway, the food in restaurant was very good and I would stay here again but know what extras to bring and will ask for a quiet room, not facing busy street.
