The Cottage in the Wood is a delightful small hotel, just as it states, a cottage in the wood. The staff are warm and friendly, the rooms beautiful and the food fantastic, particularly the breakfasts - the best quality possible. We loved our stay of four nights.

As ever the welcome on arrival was perfect - and we were immediately struck by how the main building has...

Dramatic views from the hotel reception and dining rooms. The superior bedrooms have splendid views, they are clean and comfortable but tired and need the scheduled refurbishment. The staff are friendly and helpful, the sommelier particlarly so, dinner in the 1919 restaurant was very good but next morning we were very disappointed with the full english breakfast, served just warm,...

My wife and I stayed here for a short spring break. The location is beautiful and out if town. There is direct access to the hills from the grounds, so good for walkers. We have stayed at other locations in and around Malvern and this is our favourite.

Enjoyed a lovely weekend. Very impressed with the friendly staff and great service. Room in the Lodge had everything needed for a good night's sleep, but the real highlight was the beautifully renovated reception and dining area and bar. Dinner was top-class, breakfast was also very good. Also very reasonable value given the superb location and breathtaking walks literally on...

Having been a guest here for many years I was shocked when I first walked in. There has been a total refurbishment on the ground floor. It actually is much better and the chairs are very comfortable. The food was delicious and good choice. I can't wait to come back. Also the signage from the main road is much improved...
