Although it has been extensively upgraded since they took it over in 2003 (and extended to provide four new bedrooms and a lift), Patrick and Fiona Loughrey’s attractive hotel overlooking the green in Malin has lost none of its charm.
The pleasingly traditional bar is a popular meeting place, and the accommodation is appealing: neat, attractively decorated bedrooms have phones, tea/coffee and TV; the older rooms have been re-designed and, along with their bathrooms, completely refurbished. While some rooms are not very large, they are inviting and comfortable - offering a friendly and moderately priced base for exploring this beautiful area.
It's a popular short break destination - equestrian, kayaking and painting are among the themes offered - and a live music venue, with well known acts often performing in the hotel's Village Bar
The Jack Yeats Restaurant is popular, and there is an informative and well selected wine list; however food hours are variable due to the seasonality of the business (bar meals usually all day from 12 noon in high summer, with dinner daily from 6pm); the midweek dinner menu (Wed-Fri, 6 -9.15) offers great value.
