We knew before we arrived that the restaurant etc were closed. This was fully explained to us beforehand and indeed the prices have been reasonably reduced whilst this work is being completed. They had got my booking wrong, by a day, but very quickly found us a beautiful room. My daughter and I enjoyed having the breakfast delivered to our...

On the off chance that the hotel managers read their reviews, I am sitting here with an overnight bag packed feeling just a tad annoyed... my husband booked a night at the hotel as a late Christmas present for the two of us. We have visited the hotel several times over the past 8 years, and I was looking forward...

Have stayed here before, and based on previous excellent experience, we decided to stay over Christmas. We were not disappointed. The staff made us very welcome, the atmosphere was relaxed, the food delicious, and the team had put a lot of thought into how to make the stay enjoyable for their guests. I am sure that we will be returning...

The location was rural with spectacular views and excellent accessibility to path walks in the woods. The room was spotless and warm- very much appreciated on cold days! The decoration was dated but it had the charm of past times. The downstairs (reception area, bar and restaurant) is going to be redecorated in January-February this year but not sure about...

We spent a very pleasant weekend here at the end of November. We were very impressed with the hotel; the lounge is comfortable and relaxed. Our one complaint was that there is no draught beer and the bottled beer available was from a local brewery only. The choice of menu in the restaurant was excellent and the presentation and service...

lovely setting with views. The hotel is however a little 'tired' in terms of decor. I understand that there is a renovation of the bar planned. The dinner was very very good indeed. Venison was superb.

Don't be put off by the need for a revamp, the food more than makes up for the tired interior. Great service from Abbey and the team and a perfect location to explore the area from. Looking forward to going back after the refit.

This hotel is ideally placed for walkers. An easy climb gets you on to the Malverns ridge from where you can head south to Herefordshire Beacon or north to Worcestershire Beacon. My room in the Coach House was spacious and well-appointed and had a wonderful view. Service and dining were fine.
