Staff attitude left more than a lot to be desired.. I encountered it numerous times over the two night stay. On the first night when ordering bar food I was belittled by a response from one of the waiting staff. Second night we said we'd give them the benefit of the doubt. Went down, was told we could 'order if...

The Maryborough Hotel was one of the best hotels we have stayed at. We stayed in one of the three-room suites and every room was spectacular from the large living area to the marble bathroom. The staff was super friendly and had great information about the area. Breakfast was delicious and there were many options. Make sure you try the...

Excellent venue for our family wedding. Everywhere was spotless, service was generally excellent and food very good. However, breakfast was ruined by the over gilding of the lily i.e. jus on my French toast. Sometimes less is more! This also applied to the citrus scent which was overpowering.

Really enjoyed our recent stay. We were there for a wedding and stayed an extra night. The rooms are fine, the staff is excellent, the breakfast is good (good choice from the menu, good buffet). Lovely setting, and don't forget your bathing costume / togs as the pool is worth visiting, too! And the gym!

We recently began a trip to Ireland with a couple of nights at the Maryborough. I could have stayed there longer, but the road beckoned us. It has everything you need...very comfortable beds, excellent restaurant, nice bar, a spa if you're so inclined (the hot tub was very relaxing), and beautiful surroundings. Very close to all local tourist attractions...Jameson, the...
