Originally three Edwardian houses built for local sea captains with the Hain Shipping Company, Chy-an-Albany was converted to a hotel in the 1920′s but spent a short time as a school for evacuees during WWII. The hotel has been tastefully refurbished retaining much of the charm of the original building. The hotel has recently named the bar after the Hains’ Shipping Company; Hains’ Bar, stocked with the very best of Cornish Ales , Lagers & snacks, from Skinners ‘Skin dog’ lager and ‘Cornish Knocker’ Ale to The Cornish Crisp Company, it’s just what’s needed at the end of a long day! Hains’ Bar is open all day everyday to residents and non residents; Hotel menu & Specials menu are available from 6.30pm every day.
