Colin and Kirsty were fantastic absolutely wasted here as their customer service skills were above and beyond whereas the "Duty Manager" Gary didn't even know how to manage a situation and was rude and completely unhelpful with a poor attitude.

I attended Katie2502's party as she booked to do her disco. The bar staff were excellent and accommodated our needs very well. The food was brought out and it was announced over our PA system several times. As most of the guests were outside in the courtyard, they couldn't hear so I personally went outside and announced it to them.... More

From the outside the Fownes sets high expectations; however, it doesn't live up to these inside. Hall carpets are grubby and on entering my room there was a musty smell. That said the room was large with plenty of storage and there was even a built in hairdryer in the bathroom. Breakfast was adequate and I did not try the... More

I tried The Fownes yet again in the hope things had improved since my last stay and review. Sadly no one loves this hotel anymore and it shows. The bar is stark and devoid of atmosphere and the service cut to the bone. I ordered a Gin & Tonic with ice & lemon as usual and got served ice from... More

Great location staff helpful and friendly. Looks great from the outside but once inside an in particular the bedrooms it needs updating. The carpets would benefit from being replaced, the furniture is mismatched and shabby, the bathrooms are old fashioned. A lack of plug sockets. Having said that it was really clean. But they are in the process of upgrading... 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
