We’re busy making plans to welcome you again.

Over the past couple of weeks we have been busy putting plans in place to re-open in a way that not only gives you the confidence to return to Malvern, but also provides an experience that you will love.  Whilst we put these plans in place, the safety of our guests and local community is paramount and our plans to re-open will be made with this at our core.

We are re-opening on Friday 17th July 2020, and we are taking bookings now for stays from then onwards.  Rest assured that if Government guidance changes and we are unable to open on the dates of your stay you can either move your reservation to any date within the next twelve months, or we will refund your deposit.

We are hugely grateful for the steadfast loyalty of our guests and local residents through the unprecedented challenge which we have been facing together.  We are looking forward to providing a wonderful experience for our guests.

If you have any questions during this time please be in contact with us at info@sidneyhouse.co.uk or on 01684 574994.

Thank you for your continued support, we can’t wait to see you again soon.
