The Cotford Hotel

Our Gothic, Victorian, four-star hotel is set in award-winning mature, landscaped gardens on the side of the beautiful Malvern Hills. It was built in 1851 as a summer residence for the Bishop of Worcester. The history of our charming hotel is visible throughout, with its abundance of original details and features.

Elsewhere in the hotel you can sit back and relax on the comfy sofas in our piano lounge, soak up the atmosphere and watch the world go by in our newly refurbished bar or explore the many treats that our ever-changing gardens have in store.

Four-star excellence

The friendly and attentive team constantly strive to provide the very best experience, and this has been recognised with a four-star classification and an AA Merit score of 78%. In their words “Hospitality and service exceeded expectations, the cohesive and enthusiastic team demonstrated bon viveur; attentive and professional throughout my stay at the hotel, and should be commended for their efforts.”

Award-winning, two rosette restaurant

What used to be the Bishop’s private chapel with its high ceilings and views across our beautiful gardens, is now the perfect spot for fine dining, and now hosts an award-winning restaurant – L’amuse-Bouche. It’s where you can come and experience modern French style cuisine in a quaint English setting. Something we regard as “Theatre on a plate”. Our quality and consistency have been rewarded with various awards including Worcestershire Restaurant of the Year for 2016, 2017 and 2019 and we’ve maintained two coveted AA rosette awards for culinary excellence since 2010. And you can also find us in the new Michelin guide.

A king’s breakfast

We believe it’s the best way to start the day and the AA agree. We’ve also been given their breakfast award too. So sunny side up or scrambled, there’s plenty of choice and plenty to get excited about from the minute you wake up.
