Having visited this hotel now 6/7 times I don't mind returning as I know what to expect. The staff are friendly and happy to help. There is a member of staff on the reception all day and a door man at night. The cleaners do a great job and make your bed, clean and refill your tea coffee and biscuits... More

Just come back from a two night stay at the Fownes Hotel in Worcester. My wife and I enjoyed our stay in the Fownes which is a converted Glove Factory from Victorian Times. Lovely old building and great staff who looked after us very well during our stay. The breakfast both mornings was excellent and staff very helpful. We got... More

Receptionist who booked us in clearly wanted to be somewhere else. Room very basic and only 2 towels - I mean no hand towels at all just 2bath towels. Phone would not work to ring room service or reception. Breakfast ok but egg was like eating a plastic one and baked beans looked like they had been there for hours.... More

Just had a gorgeous meal for two in the hotel restaraunt. Food was excellent, servicec was very quick and curteous. Overall a very enjoyable experience, highly recommended. We were non residents as restaraunt is open to all, very reasonable prices as well.

Second visit to Fownes Hotel; excellent value for B&B. Good spacious and clean rooms (one obviously recently redecorated) and breakfast. Ideal location for city centre with cathedral, Royal Worcester Museum, Commandery, Great Friars and the river all less than ten minutes walk from the hotel. Being able to leave the car at the hotel meant a great saving on parking... More

I called the hotel to enquire about hiring the venue for a party and booking one of their function rooms. Some guy on reception took my details as he said the lady who deals with it was on the phone and she would call me back.... Still waiting. Big party booking lost. Awful customer service.

Lovely characterful hotel, pleasant staff and good service, nice food. Breakfast nice but very over priced at £8.50 per head and there was also no hairdryer in the room which for a hotel of this standard I thought was strange, but will stay again.

Food excellent, staff very friendly, alcohol very expensive. I got a shock at the price of two glasses of wine. I would have bought further rounds if cheaper as in other hotels. A pity they lost out. Very handy for city. We found the room spacious and comfy. Possibly ready for a lick of paint outside

Would not recommend this hotel to anyone unless desperate for a poor room. Charges for Internet, credit card, anything else they can charge for. If you are on the ground floor 105-111 your room is adjacent to the entry walk way covered awning. It's where the smokers gather at all times of the day, drunk or sober. The very young... More
