Good Evening Malvern Arms regulars.

I have some time off next week and I'd really like to do the factory tour and bring Mrs Pants along. Its all part of the fiendishly clever plan to win Mrs P around to a Morgan.
Does anyone have any recommendations for a top notch hotel?

Sounds like it has to be The Abbey Hotel then. They charged me Ł90 per room per night when I stayed there in the spring, can't remember if it included breakfast, but I think it did. I wouldn't bother to stay in for dinner though!

I've stayed in the Cottage in the Wood a couple of times, fantastic views, good food, excellent service, definitely worth a look, best of luck with the plan ;-)

It depends upon what you want:

The Abbey Hotel is very central to Great Malvern , but a bit of a hike from Pickersleigh Road, the rooms are pretty traditional, rather than modern. The restaurant struggles a bit, and you will hear the noise of the Priory clock striking at all times day and night.

The Cottage in the Wood , is a wonderful location. Much better restaurant , great views , and so much smaller than the Abbey. It would certainly be my choice. It is a drive away from the centre, and is very quiet indeed.

If you want a chain hotel , then there are the usual Premier Inn, and Travel Lodges in Worcester.

If you don't mind going over the hill , then the Feathers in Ledbury is a good traditional choice, on the main street, the restaurant used to win awards , but have not been for many a year.

Hi Ed

We have stayed at the Colwall Park just outside Malvern and we found it to be very comfortable.

The Elms is very good, not too far from the factory (20 miles or so)

Thanks all for the great suggestions, now I've got too much choice. grin2

I'll see what the availability for the factory tour is like before booking the hotel.

The Feathers always had a good reputation although I haven't stayed in it. I used to stay in The Old Talbot in Ledbury but that was about 30 years ago. Ledbury is just so lovely asan old market town and certainly might soften up Mrs Pants to be in enough of a nostalgic mood to give you a simple wave to sign the order pad at the factory.... spend

The availability will be good this time of year although you won't have the pleasure of me taking you around, unless you want to push me in a wheelchair!

Sally and Judy ( my partner love!) will be only too happy to recommend suitable hotels for you both.
Living close I've not needed to use hotels around Malvern apart from an overnight at the Malvern Spa and have eaten often but not stayed at the Cottage in the Wood. Excellent food there and stunning views too from the terrace. I was treated to a night at the Elms for my birthday last month and that was excellent. Lovely setting, historic building and a nice spa as well.

Ps. Judy has just reminded me...mention you are doing a Morgan Tour and the Abbey will give you a discount!

May be the Mount Pleasant right opposite the Abbey micht ne worth a thought:

we stayed there on our last visit to Malvern and it has a nice atmosphere, good prices and a well equipped hotel bar cheers
