I review based on expectations, and based on what I expected of Malin House and in this price range I am quite happy to give 5 Stars. If your going expecting a 5 Star Ritz hotel you won't get it, but if you want a reasonably priced, well run BB in a good location with spacious rooms, extremely family friendly and with some great 'extras' thrown in this is it.
We had a 4 night stay in a family suite which was very roomy - the kids had a room with twin beds, a dining area and a kitchenette (sink, fridge, microwave, kettle, implements, etc), we had an adjoining room with double bed and the bathroom. both had TV's and the beds were comfortable. Rooms were clean and light and not hot or stuffy. Just up the hill from town but its just as easy to jump in the car and there are countless great attractions within a few miles. Nice garden for the very young ones.
We used the pool a lot which isn't so small when you're in it, very warm, bath like! (could do with more ventilation in there, the Chlorine fumes were a bit strong for me, taking goggles next time). The hottub was also popular.
The hotel has plenty of lounge areas and car parking was never a problem as it goes around the building and then some, those with bigger vehicles may need to manoeuvre a bit. Breakfast was great, although seemed to curiously vary slightly in content daily, no matter all done to order and as requested. The girls serving were lovely and bright. Wifi is available but in a small area, the code is on the wall at reception.
If your the sort of family that likes to fill up on a good breakfast, make a quick cool bag picnic lunch to take (in your well equipped kitchenette!, buy stuff from Spa in town) and head off for a day of activity or beach, then come back and head out for a meal and a drink in the evening on foot this is the perfect base, yes it is a bit dated in few places and odd few things have maybe seen better days but nothing that detracts from the hotels fulfilling this function perfectly. Would stay again, absolutely.
My tip is go around to Amroth Beach (10-15 minutes), its not overcrowded, free car park in village, plenty of amenities, toilets by beach. Has boulder/pebble dunes with good stretch of sand to the sea, easy access.
