We had a family party at the Fownes Hotel and some family members stayed overnight. Function room was okay.Bar small, so not much to choose from and no soda water (no body heard of a soda syphon these days? And you can get bottles). Buffet was plentiful and tasty. All the old favourites were there, of course with chicken and... More

The Fownes location is just a short walk to the City Centre. The hotel generally is OK for what we paid for are 1 night stay (£64) but its really does need a coat of paint. The paint work is starting to look dirty in a lot of places and in places none at all. Are bed was two singles... More

The hotel was generally clean but really didn't sparkle and certainly needs a refurb and updating. There is lots of competition in the hotel bracket now and i can appreciate how difficult it must be with such a large building. Carpets are thinning and the floor in my room creaked with the slightest movement. Dinner was poor. Not a place... More

We stayed for a weekend when we went to a family members art show for university. We found the rooms spacious, but very noisy. The floorboards in the hallway were very creaky and we could also hear people banging around in the room above. During the night, we were woken often by the creaking pipes so it was not a... More

One night only spent after attending an ex-students professorial lecture. The twin room was not cheap at £83 yet the hotel charges £5 a day for parking. The breakfast was £15.60 with no option for anything less expensive. Room comfortable but dirty, especially the carpet. I would never go there again.

Just stayed overnight for business but would use this hotel again if I came for a weekend break etc. It's easy to find (once you get through the appalling traffic) - and not one of those you've passed before you know it and have to spend another half hour on a city centre loop. There's plenty of parking (£5) and... More

Very friendly efficient staff. Lovely room, warm, very comfortable bed and good sized bathroom. Our needs regarding special diets were catered for - soya milk and vegetarian sausages were provided at breakfast and you can help yourself to as much as you want as it is a buffet style. Very good location, very close to the centre of Worcester. Would... More
