Was with a group of people for a pre booked evening meal event here .Food consisted of carvery 1st course, dessert and coffee. Great function room, efficient staff. and the location ideal The carvery itself was very good indeed, succulent pork and beef and an extensive choice of vegetables .The large” pigs in blankets” were tasty. Good choice of desserts... More

Do not bother booking your party here - we held our engagement party here in July and was left very disappointed by the staff's disinterest and poor customer service. It is overpriced and run down - working with them was a nightmare from start to finish, one of the managers Julie is very rude and unhelpful, I constantly had to... More

Me and my Mum stayed at the hotel for one night in August. The hotel itself is a beautiful building with an interesting history. It is well decorated and furnished. We had a lovely twin room and bathroom with tea and coffee facilities. There was on site parking. All the staff we dealt with were lovely. The room was quiet... More

Well, our stay and breakfast was a little cheaper than at another local hotel but, sadly, we could see why! Breakfast was just about OK... self service buffet. No fresh fruit and average sausages. Not only was the décor dated but it was also in desperate need of refurbishment in our room and en suite! It was all just about... More

We stayed here for two whilst attending a wedding. Staff were very helpful and welcoming. Hotel a bit dated but thought that added to its charm. The bar was pretty dyer and could do with cheering up. Outside sitting area very pleasant. Breakfast ok, pretty ordinary. Central for town. History of hotel very interesting. Absolutely fine for a couple of... More

My wife and I booked a two night DBB deal as we were staying in Worcester for s couple of night. We arrived early and the Operations Manager who was covering the front desk could not have been more helpful and stored our luggage. When we checked in after lunch we were given a lovely room with a wonderful bathroom.... More

We stayed with the family for one night. Great location for a stroll into Worcester City Centre. Furniture and floors a bit dated, so the bar and restaurant do not have a lot to offer. Friendly, helpful and flexible staff. Changes to our family composition and early breakfast were well responded to. We thought great value for money, with breakfast... More

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
