Terry and Kathy couldn't of been more accommodating I mainly spoke with Kathy prior to our stay in Marlborough. She helped out so much ,she was happy to feed all 17 weary boys in the morning after late nights and a few too many beers! They supplied us with good hearty breakfast's each morning setting us up for the shenanigans... More

We had a great evening at the Old Inn following a long coastal walk. The food was incredible, ranging from my burger and skinny fries with homemade coleslaw, to my friend's pizza and my girlfriend's seafood platter with squid, crayfish, salt and pepper prawns and filo pastry prawns! The atmosphere was warm and friendly, we chatted to the owners and... More

My Wife and I had to visit Malborough to clear some things from my Sister's Cottage and so, remembering that on a previous occasion the Food was super, we booked a Room for one night at the Old Inn. We absolutely could not have been made to feel more welcome. Each one of the Family and Staff were totally helpful,... More

My partner and I rented a cottage in Malborough in June this year and tried both pubs in the town. We returned to the Old Inn for a second night because it was so enjoyable. Personally I think it says a lot about a place if they can provide good quality steaks AND cook them to your liking. The Old... More

The Old Inn was booked at the last minute as we were looking for somewhere to stay in the area before visiting Burgh Island. We were made welcome from the start and checked into a beautifully furnished room with really comfortable beds. We were provided with biscuits with our tea and coffee in the room and our private bathroom was... More

Maybe we just came on the wrong day. Reading these reviews (and one of the reasons we booked The Old Inn) was for it's genuine warmth and friendliness. Whilst not unfriendly, it certainly wasn't warm and i certainly wouldn't wish to come back or recommend to a friend. We arrived at 6ish and we were shown to our room. It... More

Jo and Sophie guarantee a warm and friendly welcome, and that is precisely what you get, although the warmth and friendliness remains for your entire stay, not just the welcome! This is rare and genuine warmth, mind - not to be confused with mere professional politeness and diligence. You will feel valued as a guest here, and you will likely... More

This is a very friendly and comfortable BnB. The breakfasts, while a bit late for those who need an early start, are tasty and generous. The restaurant does good food in the evenings, and the draft beers are well kept. We are likely to be back!
