Good Hotel Guide Review
This former Georgian coaching inn in Yorkshire’s ‘food capital’ has a winning combination of cool style, informal atmosphere and robust food. Part of the Naylor-Leyland family estate, the building’s interiors mix bold colours, vintage finds and rustic-chic styling. ‘High-quality soft furnishing and interesting art make the lounge restful,’ reports a reader, while ‘candlelit tables lent intimacy to the dining room’. Food is punchy and strongly local, and might include steak tartare with horseradish followed by smoked haddock and corn chowder. Be aware: ‘a lack of portion control left us with no room for pudding’. Bedrooms, with scrubbed-wood furniture, vary from light, if plain, top-floor rooms with views to dark-hued affairs with four-poster. Some are perhaps too sparse with ‘dim lighting’ and ‘no view’, but a ‘comfortable and spacious bed’. Home-made biscuits and fresh milk were appreciated, along with 100 Acres toiletries in bathrooms, which often have a roll-top bath. A large breakfast buffet, with ‘freshly squeezed juice and molten poached egg’, will set you up for exploring Malton’s artisan producers. (Robert Gower)
