An impressive stone and brick purpose built hotel building from the early 20th century, the Malborough has Tudor Gothic detailing on its lower floors. Built in two stages, and originally called the Olympia, the lower floors are distinctly different from the brick finished upper stories. The elaborate canopy and stone tracery of the windows at ground level create an instant impression. Sadly down-at-heel hotel.
