We stayed at this hotel for a long weekend while my daughter was on a course, and I must say we were very pleased with all aspects of our stay. The location of the hotel is great, just around the corner from the theatre, restaurants and shops of Great Malvern. There is a big Waitrose nearby and Boots for essentials, although Great Malvern is quite hilly so not so easy to get around for those with walking difficulties.
The car park is behind the hotel down a hill so is quite steep to walk back up to the reception at the front. If you have heavy bags drop them at reception before you park your car. There is also limited on road parking at the front of the hotel.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. After reading some other reviews on the hotel, we booked a superior double room to give us more space, and requested a room in the main building away from the function room. The hotel duly obliged and we had a lovely large room in the main building with very comfortable double bed, double sofa, coffee table and chairs, dressing table/desk, flat screen tv, tea/coffee making facilities and a lovely big en suite with bath and shower. The water pressure wasn't great but it just about did the job. There was a wedding function on at night and we didn't hear a thing!
On our first night we had dinner included. We were the only ones in the dining room and it was a little cool by the windows, but the food was exceptional. There was a three course set menu for £19.50 and it was worth every penny and more! The presentation was amazing, and the food was very tasty. There was also an A La Carte menu available.
Breakfast at the weekend didn't start until 8am, too late for us, so we ordered continental breakfast in the room which was perfect and delivered spot on time.On the Monday morning we ate breakfast in the dining room and although we arrived only 15 minutes before the end, it was nice to see that the breakfast buffet was still complete with plenty of choice. In fact, the staff asked if we wanted anything more before they started to clear away the buffet which was a pleasant change from other hotels we have visited.
All in all this was an extremely comfortable, relaxed stay and we will return to The Abbey.
