Our room was large enough for myself, my wife and our two Labradors, the bed was small but comfy. Food was really nice. There was a lovely part of the stream for our dogs to swim in to the right of the rear hotel entrance. Beware if you are prone to insect bites, although no fault in any way of... More

Although our dietary needs were forwarded in advance of our stay, there was only one choice on the menu. We were told the hotel would make anything for us for our evening meal but when we suggested what we would like we were asked to buy the food and they would cook it for us. We were then charged the... More

We stayedat the hotel 6 years ago for one night, and were sadly very disapointed with the room we were given then. When we saw a deal come up we decided to give it another try, as the location was so perfect and we just hoped it wouldn't be a repeat of last time - thankfully it wasn't!! The room... More

I had my first visit here last week-end with my husband, friend and dog. We all enjoyed it and would find it hard to find fault. Our room was "Maple" It was large, bright, had a large settee and matching stool and a large coffee table, a comfortable King size bed and the furniture, though not new was of good... More

We have just returned from a 3 day stay at Friars Carse which we booked through our membership of Classic Hotels. Friars Carse is part of a family of hotels that includes the Waterhead Hotel at Coniston and Dumbleton Hall at Evesham. I'll start with a few negatives/tips for improvements. Firstly, Friars Carse is not, in our opinion, as stunning... More

The Friar’s Carse Country Hotel is a 19th century country house situated in 45 acres of beautiful countryside about 5 miles north of the town. This hotel was chosen partly for its location and partly because we’d previously visited Dumbleton Hall (a sister hotel) last summer and were delighted with that trip. 
As with Dumbleton Hall the house has seen... More

We took a break at Friars Carse so my partner could fish. We arrived early in pouring rain but the friendly receptionist said our room was ready so we could get in. Downstairs is a lovely wood panelled lounge bar area with the restaurant further through. Our room was Ash which was on the first floor. It was very clean... More
