Stayed at the Fownes on 11 Aug and got a great deal on laterooms. Room was comfy and a good size and the location is great to explore Worcester. When we checked out I asked if we could leave the car for an hour. The receptionist told me that we could park there until midnight as the car was registered... More

A large old converted glove factory in the city centre, so a tortuous journey to our room, along many corridors. Reception seemed efficient & friendly, good sized room, but rather tired décor. Disappointed that Wi-Fi would have been £5 for 24 hours, not what people expect these days. Booked in for supper, but looked through an empty & soulless bar... More

I am mystified by all the negative comments about this hotel, and I'm glad we chose to ignore them. Our room, bathroom, and all public rooms, were clean, I saw NO cobwebs, the bed linen WAS clean and the bed WAS comfortable. All the staff, and in particular Gary in the restaurant, were at all times helpful, friendly, efficient and... More

stayed at the hotel on the 7th August. I was booked by work. The staff on reception were very helpful and arranged for me to park my car whilst I went to a meeting. I was allocated a room on the ground floor, which had been recently decorated. The room was spotless and of a standard I expect. I dined... More

Dated but functional hotel. Room fine and clean enough. Free parking and very well located for city centre. But unfortunately stay ruined by wholly inappropriate and unpleasant attitude of the staff member on duty at checkout. You can't always expect top experience or even friendly service. But I have never experienced such rude service at any hotel or anywhere else... More

Managed to forget to follow the protocol for parking when visiting this hotel. A hefty fine followed and no help from management at all to solve the issue. After several attempts to get the female assitant manager to actually speak to me she gave me an empty promise that she would try and help me sort the problem explaining how... More

This hotel looks great from the outside; but it stops there. Prepare for aggravation, expensive aggravation. Their motivation seems to be to use every opportunity to make money whatever the cost to the guest experience. One is greeted by an aggressive notice warning the guest that a failure to properly enter a number plate for one's car parked in their... More

Stayed in the hotel for business. The room was spacious and the staff friendly, polite and helpful, The room was clean and had everything I expected to find. Unfortunately the overall interior is shabby and dated. It was extremely hot inside the hotel and my room only had 1 window. The furniture was chipped/stained and in one instance had a... More

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
