Stayed here recently for a weekend. The hotel was lovely - very charming interior and the Christmas decorations were beautiful. The hotel is right in the centre of the town so you can walk to all the shops and restaurants. The hotel doesn't have parking but the Malton car-park charges 5 euro for 24 hours and this is right across... More

We stayed at 7 hotels traveling around Ireland and Scotland and we LOVED this hotel. The location, the friendliness of the front desk each morning and evening, and I'm not sure why... but the heated towel rack was just fantastic. Would definitely stay here again if possible!

Last minute trip. A perfect location, looks can be deceiving this is actually quite a large hotel but does not appear to be from the outside. Old world charm, very cosy especially with the Christmas decorations up. Lovely rooms to relax in near the lobby with beautiful decor and high ceilings. Rooms were comfortable and large with a lovely jacuzzi... More
