Colwall Park Hotel

'An extremely friendly hotel with a charm all of its own, due to the rural setting and, even more, to the staff and owners.' Praise in 2013 for Iain and Sarah Nesbitt's country hotel in a village on the western flanks of the Malvern hills. Part black-and-white timbered, part red brick, the Edwardian building is 'ideal for a walking or sightseeing holiday'. The two residents' lounges have open fires, comfortable sofas and chairs. Individually decorated bedrooms range in size and style: 'Our standard room was pleasantly furnished, and had home-made shortbread biscuits on the tea tray. Fresh milk is available from Reception.' In the Seasons restaurant (light oak panelling, leather chairs, linen cloths), the cooking of chef James Garth is much admired: he uses local suppliers for his modern dishes such as grilled goat's cheese and red onion tartlet; slow-cooked spare rib of Hereford beef. Lighter meals and snacks are served in the Lantern Bar, which is popular with locals. Breakfast has home-made pastries and rolls. 'Very good value.' The railway station on the doorstep has good links to Hereford, Birmingham and London. (Judith Waller, and others)
  • An extremely friendly hotel, ideal for a break or a walking/sightseeing holiday. It has a charm all its own, due to the rural setting and even more to the staff and owners. Our winter package was very good value for money. Our standard room had pleasant furnishings. We had an enjoyable dinner of modern British cooking with mainly local local ingredients.

  • The village location is pleasant and its position at the foot of the Malvern Hills makes it ideal for anyone wanting to walk. We dined in each night and were impressed with the quality of the food and service. Breakfast was equally delicious. Our room was clean and comfortable. The that all the staff were really friendly.

  • The hotel was quite comfortable, though our standard room was not especially well furnished. The food in the restaurant was excellent: good-sized portions well cooked and served. The lounges were adequate. But we were irritated to be charged for the tea and biscuits that we asked for on arrival.

  • Large Edwardian hotel near Malvern, adjacent to the station, and in pretty gardens. Nice welcome at Reception and indeed from all the staff. The place is clean, quiet and a bit bland in decor. Our room on the top floor, up an attractive staircase, was a good size, very clean, with floral curtains and view over the gardens. Comfortable but again a little bland; the bathroom a fair size, The bar is attractive, and popular with locals in the evening. David, the jovial owner, was much in evidence. Breakfast in a large room, was well presented, tasty and with friendly service. A nice place!
