My husband and I visited the Cottage in the Woods in Malvern for lunch on Sunday 25 September. Whilst the food was perfectly acceptable, there were other things that were not perfectly acceptable, namely: My husband, who is in his 80s and clearly frail, had a severe and sustained coughing fit, brought on by food going down the wrong way....

We had great hopes for our wedding reception at the cottage in the wood following a recommendation from a friend but in the event we were seriously let down by a bungling and disorganised management team. All seemed well before the day. We had a couple of meetings with the lovely operations manager who filled us with confidence. We met... More

Stayed overnight for our pearl wedding anniversary, plus afternoon tea. Everything was very nice as was the service. So good to be served by people that were so conscientious & polite.. parking is free & very convenient. Yes it's getting dated but they are actively surveying customers for opinions on restorations

Booked a 4 night stay, with our little dog, in the Coach House. The room needed a facelift but the view from the patio window was so beautiful that we really did not mind that the room was tired.It was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was very good but the evening dinner menu was limited in choice... More

We have stayed here on several occassions and every time, we always recieve the same welcome from the friendly staff. The rooms are perfect with plenty of space with everything you would expect along with nice views. A bonus for someone who has a dog, some rooms allow pets and there are plenty of walking choices close by. The restaurant... More

Only stayed one night but enjoyed the experience very much, I had been a pupil at the Wells House School which was located next door and while I had visited many times had always wanted to stay. Under new ownership the young proprietors are sympathetically upgrading the facilities, our bedroom was lovely but sadly it did not have those stunning... More

Stayed for 2 nights in superior double in the coach house building. The room was a good size, with a very comfortable bed. The room did look slightly tired - furniture wise but the room was very clean and all the furnishings are kept very clean - even if some of them have seen better days., but when you have... More

We had a lovely stay at the CITW and took our dog too who enjoyed the walk through the woods and up to the top of the Malvern Hills. Be careful to mark your trail back! The hotel is of good standard, comfortable and large rooms with very friendly and helpful staff. It isn`t cheap - either to stay at... More
