We had family business near Malvern, and The Malvern sounded like a good place to overnight, although when we arrived the location - an industrial estate was a little worrying.
The hotel called the day before our departure apologizing for the fact that the outdoor pool jets would not be working, but offered a generous 20% discount on the room. We did the bed, breakfast and dinner offer - up to £25 per person for dinner.
The room was compact, but tastefully done - and, despite looking out onto the flat roof and air conditioning extractors, silent. The only views of the Hills would come from the second floor, south facing rooms.
The pool and the steam rooms were lovely and very relaxing, particularly with a glass of Pinot Grigio. A couple of hen parties, but not rowdy.
Dinner was a disappointment - it sounded great on the menu. My husband's 'parsley crusted mackerel' seemed to have a cardboard sheet on it and my falafel was dry and cool. The wine, a screw top Pinot Merlot, was £32!
After an early morning swim - pool was empty! - breakfast was excellent: generous smoked salmon and poached eggs, and a nicely presented full English.
We would definitely stay again. Reading other reviews, I think I'd go for mid-week, rather
than w/e, just to ensure we avoided the potential of a rowdy hen party.
