The Good Hotel Guide is the leading independent guide to hotels in Great Britain & Ireland, and also covers parts of Continental Europe. The Guide was first published in 1978. It is written for the reader seeking impartial advice on finding a good place to stay. Hotels cannot buy their way into the Guide. The editors and inspectors do not accept free hospitality on their anonymous visits to hotels. All hotels in the Guide receive a free basic listing. A fee is charged for a full web entry.
Cottage in the Wood, Malvern Wells
Known for the Malvern Hills with their walking trails and sweeping views, as well as the eponymous Worcestershire Sauce, Worcestershire offers visitors something for every mood and occasion. Family attractions, history and hospitality come together in this beautiful part of the UK, welcoming travellers back time and again. Worcestershire is perhaps best known for its magnificent Cathedral as well as its fine porcelain (Royal Worcester). The Malvern Hills became famous amongst the Victorians for their healing properties, although today the region is favoured for walking, cycling, horse riding and generally enjoying the great outdoors (there are still some lovely spas as well). However, the entertainment doesn't stop there - the West Midland Safari Park, Severn Valley Railway, Witley Court and Gardens - they are all part of a network of attractions. It's also very much the hospitality that makes this region such a charming holiday destination. From elegant inns that offer a romantic retreat to country house hotels for special occasions and tranquil B&Bs, Worcestershire offers all the ingredients for a restorative break. Food and drink are invariably local, guests are greeted with big smiles, and the architecture and style really set the scene for a special experience, whether you're staying for one night or a whole week.
