Attended a wedding here in August and was very impressed with the experience. Staff were friendly and efficient, nothing was too much trouble for them. This is a help when you're trying to control two hyperactive toddlers. The function room is unique in it's French style and looked beautiful on the day. The food was delicious and of high quality. Would definitely consider returning to this fine establishment.

Booked into the Malin Hotel last week as part of a trip we were taking around the North coast of Ireland. We had booked a double room in advance using their website. On arrival at around 7pm we were advised in a matter of fact manner that the hotel had double booked our room and the hotel was full. They had booked us into an alternative hotel 7km's away. Whilst they paid for our night's stay in the alternative hotel I was extremely annoyed at the lack of apology or the courtesy of a phone call in advance of our arrival to advise us of the situation. Also, we weren't the only guests inconvenienced in this manner that evening. I wouldn't consider booking into this hotel again.

Stayed: August 2013

Given that the Malin Hotel boasts an award for excellence from Tripadvisor we were somewhat underwhelmed.
Lighting terrible, almost dangerously low. Reading in bed impossible until lightshade removed. In breakfast room a fellow breakfaster commented that one had to be careful not to bump into people in the gloom.
Food edible but overrated and over priced.
Should a bottle of non-alc beer cost the same as a pint of full alc beer?
Service poor from under trained but perfectly pleasant young persons. Slow and inattentive to customers' needs and empty plates.
Bed reasonably comfortable - poor sleep not necessarily fault of hotel.
What is the 'French Twist' they advertise? We searched hard but couldn't find it.

Oh dear, sorry about this, but it's true - for us.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms facing the Green. Dread to think what the others are like

Stayed here for just one night, staff were extremely friendly and helpful and food was excellent.
Room was fine and very comfortable. breakfast was good and plenty of it with a good selection on offer.
Like I said no complaints whatsoever.

I, ve stayed overnight in the malin hotel and unfortunately it wasnt as good as my first stay a year ago. We had a meal in the restaurant and it took so long for the food to arrive, and when it did arrive my steak was cold, and again at breakfast we were waiting so long that the tea went cold. The shower in our room was faulty but apart from that it wasnt too bad. Its a nice quaint hotel if you are staying on the first floor, but the second and third floors are out back in a different part and, in my view a lot shabbier and overall, I, m a little disapointed.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on first floor overlooking the green
