Colwall Park - Hotel, Bar & Restaurant
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Colwall
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 January 2014 via mobile

Stayed over Xmas and New Year while visiting family in the area and the hotel and their brilliant staff were faultless. Every meal was superb and every request was resolved promptly and with a smile.
The chefs clearly know what they're doing and from breakfast to dinner was memorable.
Stayed in one of the superior rooms and it was well worth the extra money.
Colwall Park is one of the best 3 star hotels I've stayed in.

Stayed: December 2013

In many ways this is an excellent hotel. The food is exceptionally good. Any restaurant making me choose between venison and pheasant scores top marks from me and puddings such as a delicious and light poached pear - just fantastic. That was all from the standard menu while the special New Year's Eve dinner was superb! Anyone who has read my other hotel reviews will know that a freshly and individually cooked breakfast as opposed to the ubiquitous warm buffet, is a major positive and fresh breakfasts were delivered to order.

The only thing leading me away from 5/5 (and I am a robust inspector), was that for the accommodation (excluding the food), was quite highly priced and for that price the rooms were a bit tired. No mini-fridge nor trouser press and an excellent shower and no bath. An empty shower cap container rather than a shower cap and a broken comb left in a draw, just took the edge off. However, overall a very good experience.

Stayed: December 2013, travelled as a couple

Thank you for your very kind review and we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your New Year break with us.
We try hard to provide a comfortable and relaxing environment with superb food at every meal and each member of staff provides a friendly and professional service.
Cannot understand why the shower cap pack was empty and we would like to apologise about the broken comb.
We hope to see you back here again during 2014.

We used Colwall Park as a base for visiting the Cheltenham "Open" Meeting over the weekend of 15 - 17 November. Thus a 40 minute drive to the racecourse each day, but through the beautiful Worcestershire / Gloucestershire countryside. Colwall is a pretty little village and the hotel certainly delivers. Enjoyed a dinner in the 2 rosette restaurant, hearty well cooked breakfast and the bar is great for a "night cap". Facilities and staff service are first class. Will definitely consider again for our Cheltenham visits as Colwall Park provides good value compared to Cheltenham hotels during "Race dates"!!

Room Tip: Request room with garden view.

Thank you for your kind review and it's good to see that we are getting more and more Cheltenham racegoers staying with us because we offer excellent food and such good value - and the access to the racecourse is probably easier from our direction.

Did you realise that the hotel was originally built in 1905 because Colwall then had one the best racecourses in the West Midlands and the racehorse owners used to stay at the hotel, with the jockeys staying at a pub in the village called the Horse & Jockey – now changed into a Thai restaurant.

Hope to see you back here again soon.

Stayed here for 2 nights during a business trip.
Comfortable location, with a nice bar. Upon arrival 3 people were providing live accordion music. It all had an atmosphere of peace and tranquility. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Food is good, breakfast was great.
Price value ratio is extremely good here.

Why still only 4 points?
- Could not find wifi (did not ask for it either)
- Bathroom (room6), although very clean, needs some TLC (ceiling needs some repair, and the sink has, as is normal in the UK, 2 separate taps for hat and cold water) I am sure this can be fixed easily.

Thank you for your kind review although it's a shame you only gave us 4 points ................... even though you thought our food and breakfast were great. The three local accordionists perform in the Lantern Bar every Tuesday throughout winter 8:30 to 9:30pm.
Free wifi is available throughout our hotel (just ask any staff member for the logon & password) and we think we will continue with having separate hot & cold taps in sinks, because that's what most guests prefer.
Hope to see you back again soon and then, maybe, we can get the 5th point?

My wife and I just spent 2 nights here on their "Theatre Break - B&B with dinner on 1 evening. The hotel is very welcoming; all staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. We had no problems booking a taxi to and from the Theatre in Malvern and obtaining fresh milk for our room as well as extra Earl Grey tea bags. The dinner we had was excellent, some very delicious food well presented. The restaurant was nearly empty on the Thursday evening and so lacking in atmosphere, but the bar with warming fire was great for aperitifs and we played cribbage in the lounge while sipping our liqueur coffees after the meal. Our room was smallish but the bed was 5' and comfortable. Although the room was at the front the road noise was not obtrusive. Breakfasts were more than adequate. We would happily return!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back or side are probably a bit quieter than ones at the front.

We stayed here under a 2-night deal which included B&B for two nights and one 3-course dinner. We had a comfortable room overlooking the main road through the village, but it was very quiet with intermittent traffic noise. Tea & coffee were provided in the room with a card saying fresh milk was available on request....which was delivered very promptly and charmingly....a couple of tasty homemade shortbread biscuits was also provided. We had drinks in the bar (served with a small amuse bouche) and chose from a varied menu which we ate in the dining room. There was only one other couple eating there so there was a lack of atmosphere (not the Hotel's fault!) but the service was excellent. I had a starter of chicken breast with quail's eggs and a mustard roulade followed by pork chop with mashed potato, cabbage with lardons, green beans, apricot & walnut stuffing served with red wine jus. Dessert was port poached figs with cinnamon dumplings and vanilla mascarpone & port jus...delicious!! The whole meal was well presented, generous, and flavoursome...well worth a dining-in choice. My husband's meal was equally good. We took our "floater" coffees in the lounge, played a game of crib & nibbled on the excellent selection of homemade petit fours accompanying the coffee. Breakfast was the usual selection of cereals, fruits, cooked bacon, eggs etc ...perfectly adequate for all appetites. The hotel was comfortable with a couple of sitting rooms. All the staff were pleasant, friendly & very helpful in all areas...a taxi was arranged to ferry us to & from The Malvern Theatres by the receptionist. We had a very pleasant stay and would recommend the experience to others.

This was part of my husbands 60th birthday present as the Colwall Park has a package that includes the use of a Morgan for a day. Our room was superb with champagne and chocolates waiting for him, we decided to eat in the bar the first evening (Sunday) as it was cosy with an open fire and nice atmosphere. It was good that we did have options from the main award wining restaurant as well as the smaller menu. The food and wine were excellent, the only pity was that by 9pm we were the only people left in the bar, but that is not the hotels fault. The Morgan day was exceptional my husband loved every moment driving around the Malvern hills in an open topped car on a beautiful November day, I had a pretty fantastic day too. We did decided not to eat in the bar that night preferring to go somewhere a little more lively, with hindsight after a long day not a wise decision, we should have gone for the bar again.

Room Tip: Room 1 is wonderful very large with some views of the Malvern Hills but is overlooked by the apartme...

Thank you for your kind review and we're glad you enjoyed our hotel and the Morgan sports car day.
Now that winter is here you should try our Land Rover Experience package that includes the hills, streams and mud of nearby Eastnor Castle, where the original Land Rover was developed and is still used to develop all new Land Rovers. See our package details on line at: -
