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

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
