My second visit. The staff were much better, pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was really good as well. But the general cleanliness of the hotel and our room was awful. Carpets either all need replacement or a deep clean. In our room the chairs and bed head was stained, carpet disgusting. All the furniture is chipped and marked Our experience was... More

I'm from Worcester originally and have always admired this hotel. From booking to leaving it was a trial staying with them. Photos are misleading,this poorly maintained hotel is very scrappy and dated. Externally, this historical building is beautiful to look at, the parking is excellent and it's location is perfection for getting into the town, but that's it. The rooms... More

We'd booked this hotel as one of the few in Worcester that were able to accurately articulate the disabled facilities that were available (one of our party is a wheelchair user). We have extensive experience of hotels promising a level of access which has turnd out not to be accurate but the Fownes hotel were clear and accurate in respect... More

Love the building a bit of history behind it staff great in all aspects eg bar reception restaurant. Out door spaces relaxing. Bed comfy. My only problem was the hot bedrroom even with windows open apart from that well worth it

While the hotel is not brand spanking new, modern and sparkly, it is excellent value for money, the staff are wonderful, nothing was to much bother and the Assistant Manager is a credit to the hotel welcoming, accommodating and guest welfare was his top priority, really made us feel welcome, also credit to the young bar man. I don't understand... More

My wife and I are fortunate to have stayed in hotels all over the world, USA, South Africa. Australia, Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong and all over Europe. Not all hotels are 5, 6, or 7 Star, as in the odd Dubai Hotel. The Fownes does not charge 5 Star prices, it's rates are not all that different from some chain... More

I had the misfortune to choose the Fownes in May of this year and I must say it is by far the worst hotel I have stayed at in the UK without exception, Room 110 grandly named the Chippendale Suite! was cold and damp, the owners it seemed had decided to turn off the heating for the summer and the...

I picked this hotel because of it's location. The staff were all,without exception friendly and could not do enough for the guests staying there. The rooms are fine and very good value for the cost. Breakfast was excellent value. I stayed for three nights and will definitely return.

Went to visit the hotel, and ended up being invoiced by ParkingEye their parking adminstration firm. After a visit to reception, 2 calls, 4 letters eventually the invoice was cancelled. Appaling customer services by the hotel, very unhelpful staff. Really can not recommend visiting here.

A famous glove factory makes an amazing hotel that offers great prices given its good location across the road from the centre of town. With so much space it offers a good wedding location and will look good appropriately decorated. For the short break or business traveller it could do with a bit of sprucing off. It needs brightening up... More
