Hotels in Malvern

Accommodation in Malvern echoes the town’s former status as a Victorian spa destination; many 3 and 4-star hotels and guesthouses offer grand rooms with period furniture, roll-top baths and large sash windows. Many of these are housed within imposing period properties – perfect for a cosy night in front of the fire, or a summertime drink on the terrace. If you’re looking for a cheap Malvern hotel, then small B&Bs or 2-star hotels are your best bet, though amenities vary greatly from place to place so it’s important to look around and check reviews.

Where to stay

Great Malvern is the largest and most popular town to stay when visiting the Malvern Hills and around. Bustling with restaurants, shops and cafés, the town’s an obvious choice if you want to be close to the hills but not too cut off from amenities. If you enjoy village life head to one of the smaller conurbations such as Little Malvern, Malvern Wells or Hanley Swan. Another option is Ledbury – a mid-size town with plenty of amenities and generally less expensive accommodation. Other small hamlets are dotted around, providing a handful of guesthouse and B&B options in a rural setting.

How to get to Malvern

Located just a short drive from the M5 motorway, Malvern’s proximity to the Midlands and South West England make it a popular touring destination. At peak times – primarily summer and Easter holidays – the area can become clogged up with traffic. To save any hassle you can take a train straight into Great Malvern, whose Victorian station serves main-line trains running from Birmingham to Hereford. Other stations include Malvern Colwall and Ledbury to the south, and Malvern Link to the north. Local buses run regular services between Great Malvern and the surrounding smaller villages and hamlets.
