Our final appointment was with the Abbey Hotel in Malvern. It’s a lovely hotel right next to Malvern Abbey (I mean so close it looks like they are connected). Inside was a slight disappointnent for me. It was nice, but not in keeping with the grandure of the exterior. The breakfast room was nice. It had a huge glass roof! It was a little scruffy, but workable. The ceremony room was very 70’s and would need a lot of dressing.
We were shown a second room which was huge. It was situated in the 1970 extension. I thought it was very dated and scruffy, but H2B liked it. Again, if we had large numbers it would be workable.
All in all, it’s now our #2 venue.
Our parents are looking at Brandon Hall on Sunday. Assuming there are no issues, our wedding will be held there on 7th July 2012.
