We spent the weekend at The Cottage in the Wood with its stunning views and superb food.... Lazy afternoon drinks and late evening tea on the patio is a must when visiting (weather permitting). It's decor is not modern but it has all you need for that quiet weekend get away and we couldn't have asked for a more friendly... More

As advertised the view is outstanding -at least from room 33. We found the staff excellent and very attentive. the provision of fresh milk for morning tea was much appreciated. We only ate in the restaurant once during our 4 day stay as although the food was good we found it rather pretentious. On the negative side, our visit coincided... More

This is a lovely hotel in a lovely location with an unforgettable view of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and other counties. It is well set out with different buildings all with ample parking outside. The staff were all helpful and efficient and the greeting receptionist was fantastic. Our bedroom, 31,was in Pynnacles and had the great view as I assume does most... More

Staying for 3 days but so beautiful that I want to share now. The view from room 32 is stunning, can see as far as the Cotswolds. Very quiet overnight, no traffic noise, woken by birdsong. Great breakfast including full English. Staff are wonderful, they are friendly and helpful. Apparently the hotel has changed hands recently, so we wish the... More

Excellent location high above Malvern with verdant greensward below. Friendly staff. Relaxed and quiet. Room 34 was spacious and comfortable. I wanted a view and found one. Hard to beat it really. Did not have dinner just a cold beer overlooking the panorama. Enjoyable stay. Fairly good breakfast. Will return.
