We stayed for 2 nights in a double room. The room was clean and comfortable though a bit small. Bedding and towells were of a good quality. There was tea and coffee making facilities and one small packet of biscuits which we had to share between us (1 and a half biscuits each!!) The hotel was quite quaint and old... More

Our family wedding here went so well we just had to give a well deserved rave review. The intimacy and quirkiness of this delightful hotel was exactly what the happy couple wanted. The friendliness, professionalism and flexibility of the owners Steve and Julie and their staff helped in too many instances to quote here, they even ensured the weather was... More

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.

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

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
