Without a shadow of a doubt the worst hotel experience in our lives. No sense of customer service whatsoever. We booked a room for a couple with space for a cot for our 6 month old child as we visited Worcester for a wedding. It is relatively central and accessible, though having to pay extra to park in the hotel's... More

2nd time at this hotel and once again it lives upto expectation. We requested a particular room prior to our stay and it was sorted. All staff were extremely friendly and attentive. Thank you to Gary and Kirsty in the restaurant and Ben and Samantha on reception for their excellent service. The room was warm and comfortable and the food... More

I had stayed in Fownes some 18 months ago, on a business trip. When visiting Worcester with my wife, it seemed sensible to return to a hotel which I had enjoyed. Looking at some of the more recent reviews on this site made me a little apprehensive - but I need not have worried. Its location is excellent - perfectly... More

We stayed for 5 days for our walking holiday. We enjoyed buffet breakfast and 3 course evening meal every day. The services were very good and staff were really friendly. The hotel is very closed to town. Only one thing, we dont want to give 5 stars that we could not open our window wide to get fresh air in... More

This was my second stay, but I doubt there will be a third. Let's start with the positives; - Easy to get to, great for access to all the lovely restaurants Worcester has to offer, - Plenty of parking (£5 a night! It wasn't a year ago), - Rooms (although furniture is painfully dated and rather tired), are clean, of... More

Hotel not too bad. Pretty dated but they seem to be decorating right now. Food awful had burgers which came with off pickled cabbage and the strangest sweet chilli dip ever was like water. Breakfast was mouldy bread which was quickly taken when I complained but they left the rest Of the loaf and said I'm sorry we do check... More

We were fortunate enough to be booked into one of the very beautiful suites which was extremely spacious with a lovely comfy, cosy bed. Could do with rethinking the furniture layout in the room as the dressing table was under a low beam in a dark corner so couldn't use it as there wasn't enough light to see in the... More

Stayed one night DB&B and probably the last. Room cheaply fitted out (flat screen TV on a silver CRT TV stand for example) although clean. Offered a 3 course meal within the tariff, chose first two courses to later be told My tariff only allowed two. Didn't need the dessert as I was full but if I had been advised... More

We stayed as we were attending a party at the hotel. Parking was free , staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was clean. We couldn't fault the service. The breakfast was superb and our stay was great value for money. Would definitely stay again!
