This hotel is ideally placed for walkers. An easy climb gets you on to the Malverns ridge from where you can head south to Herefordshire Beacon or north to Worcestershire Beacon. My room in the Coach House was spacious and well-appointed and had a wonderful view. Service and dining were fine.

A group of 16 met here for afternoon tea for a baby shower. Stunning views. The tea was lovely and we had plenty of refills of tea and coffee during our visit. No hurry to move us on when we had finished.

Stayed for 2 nights at this lovely warm and welcoming hotel. Booked a room with a view, which didnt disappoint. The room decor and furniture was a bit dated, but a lovely comfortable bed. The restaurant offered good cuisine, in a relaxed atmosphere. .

Good sized rooms, well decorated, on the whole. Decor a little dated, but otherwise fine. Bathroom clean and with all one needs. Breakfast good. Main attraction is the fantastic views, and its close proximity to Malvern centre.

Disappointed and angry at the lack of service and disinterested attitude of the staff. After being told to sit and wait by 2 staff members after informing them we had a dinner reservation, we were ignored from that point onwards.
