Set against the beautiful backdrop of the Malvern Hills in the heart of Great Malvern, this historic hotel offers elegant rooms, landscaped gardens, and fantastic views over the Vale of Evesham and the Malvern Hills. The hotel is also offering a limited number of free upgrades to an Elgar Room for early bookers. If you wish to upgrade for free, please ensure to request this at the time of booking - subject to availability.


When visiting Great Malvern, exploring the Malvern Hills is a must. The footpaths onto the hills are just a short walk from the hotel and offer stunning views and various hiking or walking trails in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Worcestershire Beacon, the highest point of the Malvern Hills, provides panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. For a more leisurely outdoor experience, head to Priory Park, where you can relax in the beautiful gardens, enjoy the duck pond, and maybe catch a performance at the bandstand on Sunday afternoon if you have added an additional night's stay to this break. There are also 80 working gas lights in the town, making for an atmospheric evening stroll, although please be aware that the streets are steep.


History lovers will find plenty to do on this break. The 15th-century Abbey Gatehouse is just next door to the hotel; here you'll also find the small Museum of Local History, which offers insights into the local history and heritage of the town. The Great Malvern Priory, a beautiful historic church with impressive architecture and stained glass windows, founded in 1085, is also close by. Additionally, The Firs - The Birthplace of Sir Edward Elgar (National Trust) is located a short drive away in Lower Broadheath and celebrates the life and work of the famous composer Sir Edward Elgar. The renowned Malvern Theatres is also nearby and offers a range of plays, concerts, and films.


For motoring enthusiasts, a visit to the Morgan Motor Company is highly recommended. Here, you can tour the factory where these iconic cars are made. Nearby, Eastnor Castle offers the Eastnor Land Rover Experience, as well as the chance to explore the picturesque grounds and fascinating history. Please note that pre-booking is necessary for both of these places. The Three Counties Showground is another notable venue, hosting a variety of events and shows throughout the year, including the Western Motorhome and Campervan Show (dates for 2025 still to be confirmed).


There are also a number of wine, beer, and cider tours and tastings nearby. For wine, head to Astley Vineyard in Stourport-on-Severn or Three Choirs Vineyards (England's oldest vineyard) in Newent - both are about a 40-minute drive from the hotel. For beer, The Hop Shed Tap Room is just a 15-minute drive from the hotel. Here you can sample the local beers where the hops are grown and the beer is brewed. Finally, for cider, Westons Cider Mill offers tours and tastings as well as Shire Horse Experience days!
