Colwall Park - Hotel, Bar & Restaurant
Travel Blogs from Malvern
... my upcoming 3 month vagabond adventure in Greece. Well, after finding out that I couldn't go back to Spain, after Palma that is, I gave up for the few days following. Palma did something to me, it was that little drug that made me crave more, I think maybe I've been missing my solo adventures. Anyways, well then all of a sudden the illogical, adventure seeking, crazy, travel guru, said hey I wonder what it'd cost to go to Wales for a few days, hey that'd surely be cheaper and ...
... whilst searching for somewhere to have breakfast. As you may now be aware, I quite like a hearty breakfast before a ride and I'm not a great lover of porridge. So faced with the prospect of a bowl of Museli (Swiss for rabbit food) or Grenola (Swiss for rabbit food with bird food in it) I hurried towards the welcoming aroma of sausage meat and pastry. What a sight to behold. Tray after tray of little parcels of puff pastry, lovingly wrapped around succulent sausage ...

Another early rise. Went down to moreton in marsh to pick up dad and take him to the three counties show. It was a 40 minute drive to get Dad and then another hour to drive to Malvern to the show. Dad is full of a cold and not at all well. Arrived at the show paid the £20 to get in (rather expensive for a show) actually the lady on the get let me in for aged pensioner price so I only had to pay £18. Not sure whether to be happy for the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Colwall Park - Hotel, Bar & Restaurant Malvern
We booked the best room they had (no.1) at about £180 including dinner. The room itself was nice enough, as long as you did not look out of the window, which looked directly onto what can only be described as an old people's home plus some building works. The house itself is set on a main road (although reasonably quiet), at a junction. The aerial photo the website shows belies the true location of the hotel, which is nothing special, as it does not have its own grounds.
Superb food, wonderful walks
A perfect place for a short break just past the Cotswolds. Super, super food. Great wines including a nice selection of half bottles.Highly recommed to book the Dinner bed and breakfast package. Had a superior twin room which was spacious, warm with an excellent bathroom. International staff were good, but lacked local knowledge, but were helpful to give literature. Walking the hills and lovely local shopping in Ledbury. Will certainly return.
Londoners should take the A44 going home and take a half way break at the wonderful town of Woodstock.
Stayed for 2 nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Booked a deluxe room and we got the biggest room I've ever stayed in with the biggest bed!
Great hotel, fabulous food.
Stayed there twice during June 2005. The single rooms are very small; worth upgrading to a double although the shower in the single was better. Lovely grounds, very helpful and friendly staff.
Very atmospheric building right in the heart of Colwall, which is very quiet and picturesque. The noisiest thing there is the dawn chorus!
I did not dine in the restaurant, which I heard was fabulous, but the "bar meals" were outstanding - the same standard as the restuarant. Not cheap but every penny. Nice atmosphere in the evenings.
Great location for exploring the Malvern Hills too, nestled just below them. Free wireless internet access.
Highly recommended. I will be staying there again.
Wonderful rural break
A great hotel to escape from London for the weekend and enjoy the Malvern countryside. The walks and scenery around the area are superb. The hotel is pleasantly situated in the village of Colwall, with comfortable spacious rooms, and some of the best food I have eaten outside of London. The owners are a friendly welcoming couple who will ensure your stay is as relaxing as possible.
We stayed for a 3 night gourmet break, totally brilliant! Friendly & efficient staff, wonderful welcome. Food was wonderful, but do ask about the chef's night off, as that evening was not the same standard. Hoping to return soon.
We spent one night here last weekend, and wished we could have stayed much longer. Check-in was very civilised and the nice lady receptionist showed us up to our room. This was quite superb, beautifully furnished and finished.Dinner was an amazing experience; friendly and very attentive service combined with one of the best meals we have ever had.
The Colwall Park chef is seriously talented. Breakfast was equally impressive and we enjoyed chatting with the manageress (we think) who had looked after us so well at dinner the night before; also worthy of praise are the friendly Spanish waitress and barman. The owners and staff of Colwall Park deserve great praise for their hospitality and attention to detail. Full marks from us and thanks for a great stay!Mark & Sian
Fantastic food and fabulous friendly service.A must stay hotel in a great part of rural England yet close to the Welsh borders.
Great location in the centre of a peaceful village with footpaths direct from the hotel gardens to the Malvern Hills. Superb gourmet food, exceptionally freindly and efficient staff and a lively bar full of character locals.
