We unfortunately only had a brief overnight stay at The Brambles. Very friendly and welcoming, a comfortable and spacious room and a good traditional English breakfast. Very easy to find as it's on the main road - even we didn't get lost, and perfectly located for the 3 Counties Showground.

Stayed one night, room was very comfortable and nicely decorated, The owners are attentive without being intrusive. Breakfast was excellent, fruit followed by full English. owners always on hand to give advice and gave some good tips on where to park and walk at British Camp to take in some great views over Malvern Hills, we will return.

This place is a real find.
We were attending a family party at the nearby Worcestershire Golf Club.
The owners afforded us a warm welcome and Bren drove us to the party we were attending.
A traditional English breakfast was served.

Our first time in the area, visiting relatives, and a great find. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome by the owners. We were given a choice of double rooms, both of which were cosy and well appointed.
Although we didn't have much time to spend at The Brambles, our brief stay was first class. Breakfast was superb, freshly cooked and with nice touches like home made jams.
Location was also great for exploring local area and owners Lois and Brendan were happy to recommend sights worth visiting.
Hope to return, next time in the summer!

Stayed at the Brambles for the first time last Friday 29th Sept. so that we would be at the Malvern Autumn show early, really sorry that we didnt book for an extra night after a long tiring day at the show. Hospitality was wonderful, lovely friendly couple, excellent room to the front bright and comfortable. Really tasty breakfast which was well served and plentiful. Looking forward to booking for the Spring show and will be booking a longer stay next time.

Exceptionally warm reception, was great to be able to come and go as we wanted. The room was top notch, comfortable and immaculately clean. Breakfast was plentiful, so all in all what more can you ask for. The house is right at the foot of the Malvern Hills, which offered a great way to stretch our legs after our journey

I would warmly recommend the brambles to anyone visiting the Malvern area.
