Wonderful hospitality at this lovely little hotel near Malvern. The owners were very accommodating to all our requests and helped make our daughters wedding at nearby Birtsmorton Court a truly magic day. We would throroughly recommend staying here. Our party had the whole hotel for 2 days. Marvellous.

This was our second visit to the hotel, for our annual family Christmas get together. Julie & Steve have become very dear to our family after several visits inbetween stays. They are such genuinely lovely people that make you feel so at home. Nothing is too much trouble and and our children just love them too. The food is fantastic... More

We have just stayed overnight in this charming hotel. The bedroom and en suite were spotlessly clean, and the former was prettily furnished with broderie anglaise bedding and cottage wallpaper. The food was excellent both the dinner and breakfast. The setting is perfect at the foot of the Malvern hills with a sunny conservatory available for reading and relaxing. There... More

Was really looking forward to staying here but what a shock we got!!!! Very old and dated and mainly catered for people aged 70 and above!!! Dining area was old and small, bar area is a joke. 3 seats and then it's full! Bedrooms ok, showers are bad, you have to run the water for 10 min to get hot... More

My husband and I stayed here when the Upton Jazz Festival was on. Our en suite room was stunning, clean, classy and very, very comfortable. We had a lovely view of the grounds and was nice to see rabbits and wildlife all around us. The owners and staff were very friendly and welcoming and the breakfast was fresh and delicious,... More

Lovely owners who looked after us so well and were beyond kind to us! Lovely B and B and a delicious evening meal made our stay memorable and such a treat! We will stay again - it is a brilliant location for any event at the Malvern Showgrounds.

Booked in at a weeks notice as a solo traveller for four nights mon - fri. I got the single room - comfy, quiet and rather small but then there was only me. There's a small bar serving local bottled beers. The evening meal was good restaurant quality, well presented and tasty. Breakfast was fine. All in all a relaxing... More
