Comments: Built in 1889 by William Malone, investing 7000 pounds into a hotel that was superior in its appearance and fittings. His family continued to own the hotel into the 1920s, sometimes leasing it to others. In 1920, Malone's hotel was delicensed after the local option poll. Malone's became a "private hotel" providing "superior accommodation" and passed out of the family's hands in the mid-1920s.
