Having never been to a spa before, my boyfriend and I were a little apprehensive but once we arrived the staff were very helpful and we were put at ease. The facilities are excellent - the pool was wonderful, lovely and warm indoors and outdoors with lots of different hydrotherapy areas (from the far-left corner you also get a lovely view of the Malvern hills!) and the saunas, steam rooms and relaxation areas are all of a high standard and kept very clean. I booked an express back, neck and shoulder massage which worked wonders on tense muscles and my therapist was very friendly and put me at ease immediately. My boyfriend had a reflexology session which he really enjoyed too.
As guests of the hotel, we had a very comfortable stay in a huge bed! Breakfast was tasty and we also enjoyed drinks in the spa relaxation area, completely taking advantage of being able to wander around comfortably in the slippers and dressing gowns provided.
Although the spa was not ideally located considering we were travelling by train, we made the most of the local area around Great Malvern station, visiting the book, record and antique shops and pubs before getting a taxi to the spa. It is a short walk to supermarket/pharmacy/McDonalds amenities and around 20-30 minutes walk to shops and restaurants around Malvern Link (we found a lovely curry house called Vasai). The hotel were happy to call for our return taxi with a very friendly and reasonably priced firm.
