The Mount Hotel Malton

New Management

Under New Ownership

A very warm Yorkshire welcome to the Mount, Malton's only family run hotel. We took over in June 2017 after it had been closed down for 18 months and have given the bar and restaurant a full refurbishment with further plans to open Will's Bar (formerly the German Bar) in the basement by the end of the year.

Malton is a lovely market town with unique shops, a friendly atmosphere and its location is just superb being so close to the many fabulous attractions on the doorstep.

Serving 7 days a week we welcome you to come and relax and unwind whatever the occasion.

St Michaels School

The Mount Hotel is a long history and was originally constructed in 1870 as a girls' school.
Once the school shut the building was converted into a hotel, which has now been recently renovated providing unparalleled accommodation for people visiting North Yorkshire and the historic market town of Malton.

Our Story

Our Story So Far

After a long wait due to essential works on the building by the Estate we finally got the keys on 26 th June and literally started work that afternoon ripping off wallpaper. Just 2 days into the project and we received an enquiry to host a 50 th party on 29 th July, so not wanting to turn business away we took the booking and worked around the clock refurbishing the bar, restaurant and installing a brand new state of the art commercial kitchen. Thanks to our tremendous workforce we managed it, even though some of the furniture arrived on the day and the cellar works were completed just the day before. Talk about skating by the seat of our pants! So the party went ahead and was a great success.

There is still some work to do at the bar with the addition of shelving and wine racks, curtains and wall décor but ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’.

We have 9 en-suite bedrooms all of which are really nice spacious rooms. Our plan is to freshen these up over the winter months.

Our next big project is to refurb the old German bar and this will become Will’s bar. So many people have fond memories of Wills so we thought it apt to bring it back. By the way, he is now nearly 16 and Jess has just turned 13 – how time flies! We plan to serve tapas and cocktails here.

We already have a fabulous team in place and we very much look forward to welcoming Head Chef, Nick Leadill who worked for us at The Blacksmiths.

By the second week in September we plan to be fully operational, serving morning coffees, lunches and evening meals.

Of course none of this is possible without your support and we are so pleased with the start we have had, seeing lots of our ‘old’ customers and welcoming new ones.

Thanks for coming, have a lovely evening.
