Great stuff @LimeBlast
There are lots of B&Bs and a few hotels in Malvern, though I've little direct experience of them.
The Foley Arms is probably worth a look for a cheap place to stay, tho I can't vouch for how peaceful as it's also now a reasonably rowdy (for Malvern) Wetherspoons.
Best advice: trust Tripadvisor - though the Foley Arms and Abbey Hotel are literally the closest to the meeting point - the Premier Inn is out of town.
If you're staying over on one night, I DEFINITELY recommend this Philadelphia Experiment burger at Mackenzies - and will try hard to join anyone there (toddler bedtimes permitting )
