This is the second time my partner and I have stayed here and both times we have found it great. The hotel is a grand building that could do with modernisation however it makes up for it in other ways. We had room 212 which was quiet, warm and cosy. We had a great nights sleep. The staff are friendly... More

My partner stayed here while she went out with her work colleagues for an evening in Worcester. She knows the town but is not local. She quietly returned to the hotel at around 11pm and was told that one of her colleagues, who knew she was staying there, had just been 'thrown out' after acting drunk and disorderly. He had...

The staff at the Fownes hotel are fantastic. One member of staff in particular is Maria who works on reception who is excellent. She is one of the main reasons I will keep coming back to this hotel. Having stayed here on a number of occasions, Maria has made my stays so much better. She offers amazing customer service and... More

Staff here are friendly and helpful. Big room, close to the city. Dark with quiet area. Good sleep. I was not going to leave IF the staff asked me about my stay, I would have just them, they didn't ask so here goes. Apart from good staff room really dated. I paid 115 for a suite and 5 pound for...

Stayed on the 27th as we were visiting friends in Worcester this was the only place with rooms available. Very basic room very shoddy decor, no working shower. Was woken at 5.30 when guests returned to their room next door not their fault but extremely poor sound proofing as they sounded like they were actually in our room. Breakfast was... More

Checking in for a family wedding was seamless, Receptionist was superb. Room (224) was very pleasant, if a little warm (even with the Radiator off!). Wedding, Food and Service were all excellent, and Breakfast on Sunday was delicious. However, the Bathroom was disappointing. The basin unit had a square edge which one of us smacked in to (before the Reception!),... More

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
