“Wedding stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

We stayed recently with friends to attend a local wedding. We needed a six-seater taxi. Having been let down by one firm,Tia went to great lenghths to secure an alternative. Such attentiveness was typical. We had a delightful stay in a beautiful location.

Stayed July 2012, traveled as a couple

My daughter and I stayed here on a birthday trip, using both the spas facilities and the house to accomodate us overnight. This was a lovely treat and we were made very welcome. Had an enjoyable nights sleep and a sumtious breakfast the next morning. Tia and Steve are lovely people and I felt they truly do care about their guests and their experience staying in their lovely home.

We chose to stay here while visiting Worcestershire and this was based largely on the reviews given on this site. We were definitely not disappointed! What a beautiful house, gorgeous room, excellent hospitality, wonderful massage! Steve and Tia are perfect hosts - friendly but inobtrusive and we instantly felt at home. We will certainly be returning in the near future. Thank you for a relaxing break.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Oak Suite which was beautiful but we did not see the others to be able to compare o...

Our second visit to this wonderful retreat. This time for a birthday with champagne by the river and a relaxed evening meal with lovely food and fine wine. There was nothing to criticise and nothing was too much trouble. Felt relaxed and treated as really welcome guests. Cannot praise Pool House too highly.

Room Tip: Oak suite and Blue suite overlook the river.

We were visiting Malvern for a fairly sombre anniversary but the Poolhouse really made it a lovely weekend. The house is fantastic, the rooms lovely and the welcome from the hosts excellent. We happily sat and chatted with Tia and Steve as we drank tea and coffee in the fine drawing room and exchanged tales of travelling and spilt wine. Sadly were only had one night so didn't benefit from the free massage, but we enjoyed every minute of our stay.

Breakfast was excellent and fuelled us for a walk into the lovely village. I have never seen so many pubs! Good second hand bookshop and nice wee shops. Sadly the flooding and recession has hammered some local businesses though.

We took our bikes to Malvern and it was a lovely ride. Can also highly recommend Clive's fruit farm which is very nearby. We got some lovely plums and great sirloin steak from there.

Pool House I salute you!

Room Tip: Had a peep in all the rooms, all are lovely.

We stayed here for our honeymoon. Tia let us arrive early and take some wedding pictures on the picturesque grounds. We stayed in the bridal suite and had rose petals, champagne on ice and chocolates awaiting our arrival (which was admittedly rather late as the reception went on well into the night - not a problem as someone kidly waited up for us though). Fry up in the morning was delicious too! Only criticism is that there wasnt a clock in our room, and without our phones on us, we had to go down to the grandfather clock in the downstairs hall at six in the morning to find the time. Overall a fantastic stay!

We consider ourselves regulars here now and are never disappointed. The rooms are superb, the breakfast delicious, and the massages excellent. We are always made to feel very welcome and nothing is too much trouble.
