The Mallyan Spout is not the most elegant hotel I have ever, or will ever, stay in - but it does not deserve some of the more 'iffy' reviews on this site! We have high (very high!) standards, and, although the hotel feels a little tired in places, our room was spotlessly clean, the food was delicious and the service was excellent.
We stayed for 2 nights on a D/B/B basis. Our room was room#11, a large, comfortable four poster bedded room with the most fantastic views out over the moors, and the hotel gardens below. The bathroom was large - I didn't go mad on the fake marble wall coverings, but that's just personal choice, and not a hotel fault. What I do need is a comfy bed, and that's what we got.
Dinner on both nights was lovely - we ordered different things, and both enjoyed what we had (although the servings are HUGE! I didn't manage to finish any main course/pudding).
We preferred the non residents' lounge to the residents' lounge, so had our coffee there instead.
We encountered several staff, and all were not just courteous and pleasant, but were extremely helpful - nothing seemed too much trouble. Remember, this is a small country hotel - but we had some of the best service we've had in a long time (I can think of some big chain hotels who could learn a thing or two about customer service here...).
We had to check out fairly early on the Sunday, and, although we were a bit early for breakfast, the dining room was opened up straight away and we were served promptly. To be honest, this shouldn't need mentioning, but, again, a lot of bigger places would not have responded in this way.
Would we go back? We like to try new places, but if we were wanting another weekend in this area, we would stay at the Mallyan Spout again.
