What an absolute gem this place is! A real find that I really hope to visit again. We arrived quite late in the evening and were greeted warmly by Martin, the landlord, who showed us to our room, before cooking us both steak and chips of very good quality, which was very gratefully received after our long journey. Whilst having...

Excellent meal. All freshly prepared and cooked by the very warm, welcoming and attentive landlord Martin. A quality selection of real ales and wines from around the world. I can highly recommend the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.

Thank you so much, Tricia, for your comments. I'm so glad you enjoyed your meal here especially your endorsement about the wine. That particular sauvignon blanc has only been on the wine list a short while but I have to admit, more than just a few wine lovers are raving about its character. Unlike so many white wines, serving it...

This was the third time we have stayed at the Walter de Cantelupe Inn. Each time we have found it to be a very pleasant experience. There is always a warm and friendly atmosphere. The rooms are clean and well kept. The menu is varied and tasty. The staff are helpful and obliging. Martin is a very good host. We...

WalterdeCantelupeInn, Owner at Walter de Cantelupe Inn, responded to this review

Dear Gareth, The ultimate compliment for any host is to welcome guests who have stayed before and even more reassuring for me and the staff to know that we provide a high level of satisfaction. You are right about the great location for the Malvern Hills, the famous theatre in the town and, of course, the even closer city of...

We stayed a couple of nights. To say the room at the top of the stairs it tiny is an understatement. You can't even stand up. We ordered an evening meal and were the only ones eating in the place, yet it took forever to be served. When my meal came it was cold, it took 20 minutes for a...

Thank you for the review. Reading the comments, I find it actually quite embarrasing, almost unbelievable that any customer should have what could be described as a dissappointing experience. On the rare occasion when a customer does not find our service or facilities to their liking, I go to some lengths to address the issue. Had I known whilst you...

I have rarely felt so welcome in a hotel. Maybe this is what is called "british hospitality", but I think that it has much to do with the sympathy, the kindness and the professionalism of the staff. Walter de Cantelupe Inn is not exactly a fashionable design brand-new hotel, but it is part of her character. It is such a...

Excuse me for not responded to your extremely extensive 'report' from your first visit to my Inn. I cannot remember receiving such a detailed explanation of a guest's stay here, be it published as a review or even raised in conversation. I am almost lost for words to respond. But not to respond to someone who obviously seems sufficiently moved,...

Excellent bed & breakfast, very good personal service. Comfortable traditional bed room with all modern facilities we needed. First class! We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we entered the hotel. As a bonus, they keep a well stocked bar downstairs with good quality ales & a great range of whiskies & gins.

Thank Mike P
WalterdeCantelupeInn, Owner at Walter de Cantelupe Inn, responded to this review

Wonderful news to know you found the Inn met your expectations. I am currently researching, in a modest way, of course, whiskies to stock in the coming months. There seems to me an even greater choice now than there has ever been. A nearby distillery, I believe, is releasing its first single malt whisky in 2017. I'm looking forward to...

Very small. Comfortable . Good location. Food top quality and prepared to order. Owner manager and staff very accommodating. Very old building so stairs to rooms very steep - not great for any body with any infirmity.

Always satisfying to learn how the guests have enjoyed their stay here. You will be interested to know that this summer I'm opening a bedroom on the ground floor to accommodate those guests who find stairs challenging at times. Once again, thank you very much for your useful comments. Best wishes

Should I keep this delightful pub/inn, with a few bedrooms,selfishly to myself and other discerning people? yes I should ! However, I did promise Martin,the landlord,I would post appropriate and justified compliments. Walter ( the inn ) and Martin make a perfect partnership! I loved my visit! Excellent hospitality, quality and service. My particular interest is good quality. I love...

Well, I must say, we are used to receiving positive reviews from happy customers, but yours has surpassed my and my staff's expectations. I do ask guests if they have enjoyed their experience why not share their findings with others looking for real, personal English hospitality realising, of course, that not everyone will be motivated to do just that. So,...

Stayed on business trip as HQ in Worcester, place has character and is just a few miles out of city centre with its own car park. Great location as in middle of small village with another 3 pubs. I'm an early starter and like to avoid the rush hour so early continental breakfast served to room is perfect. Real Ale...

WalterdeCantelupeInn, Owner at Walter de Cantelupe Inn, responded to this review

So glad you enjoyed your stay. I'm finding more people who are on business choosing the more personal approach of small hostelries, ie bed and breakfasts, guest houses and small hotels as opposed to the homogeneous motel style venues. Next time you visit, you will have the opportunity of trying a beer from a new, local brewery. The beers they...

The staff and facilities were extremely welcoming. Dinner on both nights I stayed was presented beautifully and tasted fantastic. I always prefer to stay at less corporate hotels as I prefer interaction with people. The Walter de Cantelupe Inn did not let me down. Many thanks to Martin and a mention to Helen who I met at reception.
