Through the large garden, paths lead directly to the hills, via a railway footbridge. 2 lounges (1 with TV), library, bar, restaurant, ballroom. 1-acre garden. Free Wi-Fi. Background music. Wedding/conference facilities. Children welcomed (cot, extra bed £35 per night). 22 bedrooms. B&B £95–£125. Dinner £25.  
  • We stayed at this hotel for the Three Choirs Festival in Hereford. Can endorse the current entry in GHG. All staff friendly, helpful and efficient. Rooms vary - the first floor double room we had on our 2nd visit was larger and more comfortable and -floor room we had at first, although both were well furnished with plenty of storage. Good breakfast with plenty and variety of fresh fruit and grill with local produce. Excellent dinner with attentive service, including seared scallops with chorizo and pea puree and crispy pan-fried poussin with leg confit. Reasonable selection of wines by the glass as well as bottles.

  • 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!
