I took a coach party to the Fownes hotel upon arrival we were met by Julie at reception who was most helpful in unloading the coach and getting the passengers settled in quickly and efficiently. All the meals were served efficiently with great help from all the serving staff and the kitchen. My table was served each night by a... More

Stayed there as part of a residential course in Feb 2015. Uncomfortable bed and dirty furnishings. Room very cold, and not well insulated. Food was more style than substance but the breakfasts were good. Wifi had to be renewed every 12 hrs with new logins and a different login for every device which was a pain. Wifi didn't work in...

A very old characteristic building that once was a glove factory. Parking on site was excellent especially for a city. The location handy for shopping and visiting the river. The room was very clean the bed was huge and very comfortable. The furniture and the bathroom tiles were a bit tired but the hotel is huge and independently owned so... More

Started off badly. We ordered a ground floor room due to a leg injury (disabled) they put us on the second floor with no lift. Eventually and begrudgingly moved to the ground floor. Room was filthy. Carpet was threadbare, rucked, stained and generally dirty. Tiles in bathroom missing and/or cracked. Behind the bathroom door (when closed) we discovered at least... More

We stayed in the £99 Stuart suite overnight for my daughter's birthday. It's a lovely room, very large and light and airy, like a small flat. Lots of windows. Spacious en-suite. The room has been recently redecorated, although the decorators have got wall paint all over the skirting boards, and there are unpainted patches on the ceiling. There were plenty... More

I would have liked a room with a bit more of a christmassy atmosphere and a bigger bar but these little gripes we had a good party! Tip - If you... More

The staff at the fownes could not do enough for us and our guide dog puppy. The room was spacious and the food good value for money. The breakfast was great. The hotel itself was a bit worn in places but the lively atmosphere made up for that. I had booked a "cheapie" and did not know what to expect.... More

I recommend this hotel unreservedly. Gary and his staff provide a friendly and welcoming environment which contributed enormously to making my 5 day stay memorable. If you enjoy staying in a centrally located building with historical connections (gloving industry) this is perfect. The evening meals were varied, well presented and enjoyable. We had English strawberries and tomatoes in April, a... More

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights with a group of friends and whilst the staff were generally good there was a clear need to train some, particularly in the bar. The Hotel is in need of modernisation ,is rather shabby and our bathroom was had a hair dryer which had failed the electrical inspection and should have been... More

Room 107, perfectly adequate bedroom accommodation but the walk in shower room left a lot to be desired, no heating despite them insisting the towel rails were heated - they definitely were not, the hairdryer did not work and was labelled failed by the electrician, they did supply a replacement. The mosaic floor of the shower was both uneven and... More
