I organised a family reunion last month for 30 adults and ten children. I was apprehensive that our wide age range (4 months to 80+ ) including some people with mobility issues, would be a problem, but all staff were extremely helpful, well organised, and could not do enough for us. I was shown the private room where our meal... More

I was more than apprehensive after reading the reviews. Easy check in. Good size room and decor adequate. Bathroom also of a good size and all areas clean. Excellent free wifi. Do not understand why previous reviews have been so critical. Breakfast standard but of good quality. Would stop again

we stayed one night at this hotel and it was clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great - help yourself to cooked and cereal. Toast in a proper toaster. Some parts of the decor were a bit tired e.g. furniture and bathroom. However this didn't detract from a very enjoyable stay.

This was my second stay at Fownes and I'd hoped it had improved since I last visited years ago, I was wrong. Reception is fine, but as soon as you walk through the unbearably hot corridors to your room you get a sense the place hasn't been updated for about 30 years. Tired, worn carpets, scuffed paint and and odd... More

My room was just what I needed from the size of the room to the beds. The breakfast was excellent and the chef even came out to talk to us. his name is Stewart I believe.. The barman Steve could not do enough for us . He even served our food to us in the bar. I was told all... More

At short notice we needed somewhere to crash out for one night in Worcester city centre. All the on line booking sites said every hotel was full (!), so we phoned round and got a suite at the Fownes for £96 including breakfast. We used to use their Brasserie and the King's Restaurant frequently in the nineteen eighties, but haven't... More

I stayed 3 nights at the Fownes Hotel for a conference. The hotel had no air-conditioning and windows barely opened meaning it was unpleasantly hot even at night. The restaurant food was good but the decor was akin to a canteen. Staff were friendly and the location is central.

Was invited to try the Sunday Carvery, having 3 children it's always a worry of whether it will go down well with there likes n dislikes. We arrived and was pleasantly surprised by the very friendly staff who showed us to our table, we decided to stick to the Carvery but the menu was tempting. We opted for a main... More
