Good Hotel Guide Review

A riot of Tudor black and white, with 17th- and 19th-century additions, David Elliston’s ancient coaching inn–turned–spa hotel has been receiving guests since the reign of Elizabeth I. (Some won’t leave – rumour has it a ghost or two linger.) It’s a popular spot in town, with an ‘excellent ambience’: join the locals at tea by the fire in the lounge or, on a fine day, on the garden terrace. The interiors are a mix of styles: sleep in one of the characterful Coaching Rooms, with beamed ceiling and timber-frame walls, or in a high-ceilinged Dancing Room, in the former Victorian ballroom. All have bottled water, fluffy bathrobes, toiletries. At mealtimes, find a seat in Fuggles brasserie among the hops and horse brasses. Suzie Isaacs, the chef, serves appealing modern British dishes such as filo basket of oyster mushrooms, white truffle cream, pecorino; cod fillet, pink fir apple potatoes, curly kale, cucumber and lemon beurre blanc. Breakfast in Quills restaurant offers a good choice. Wander the streets of independent shops in this historic market town; the Malvern hills are a half-hour drive away. (Gwyn Morgan)

Guest comments

'Food, service and ambience all excellent. ' - GM - November, 2016
'Spent a walking weekend with a group of friends at this hotel and found it to be very comfortable. The rooms were beautifully decorated and spacious as were the shared areas for enjoying afternoon tea. Ate at the brasserie in the evenings and enjoyed a wide range of delicous food beautifully presented. The staff were very helpful and went that extra mile to ensure that every need was anticpated and met. ' - Mrs D Broomfield - October, 2016
