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.

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

What a beautiful sight as we came down the drive.The wisteria which had partly drawn me to the hotel was out and set the hotel off in the early evening sun. As we parked Steve came out to welcome us and offered to help with luggage. Were shown to our lovely comfortable and clean room [hollybush] with plenty of cupboard... More

approach is via a narrow short one track drive winding its way through hedge lined lawns past the little hotel into the car park which is within a few strides from the front door. Passing through a brightly lit sitting room into the hallway where we were met by the proprietor. Very friendly, quickly booked in and shown upstairs to... More

My wife and myself stayed here and we were made extremely welcome. The room was a good size and the chairs and bed comfy. We ate in one night andthe food was excellent. The breakfast freshly cooked and nice. The owners very nice people and we will return again soon

We recently stayed here, the weekend before Christmas, and from the moment we arrived Julie and Steve made us feel so very welcome. We were a large family group and as we were the only ones staying, it made the whole experience that extra special for us all. The children loved the hosts, and it was so lovely for them... More
