Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Fabulous, far-reaching’ views spread across the Severn valley from this hotel in extensive grounds high above the Malvern hills. The refurbished Georgian dower house has contemporary public spaces, and a collection of smart bedrooms in the main house, and neighbouring Beech Cottage and the Coach House, some with a patio or small balcony. Floor-to-ceiling windows in the restaurant frame a rural panorama that stretches to the Cotswolds, a fine backdrop for Rob Mason’s ‘excellent’ modern cooking at lunch and dinner. ‘The home-made bread was incredibly moreish!’ Casual meals and drinks may also be taken alfresco on the covered terrace – all the better to exult in big vistas. The Elgar route is close by.
