Stayed at Fownes on 14th/15th August 2015 for the British Hill Climb at Shelsey Walsh. Nice place with very friendly and helpful staff who really made the stay easy and enjoyable. Took advantage of the happy hours and comfortable lounge bar and had a good laugh with staff who were relaxed and attentive. Room was fine and had everything that... More

We have stayed at Fownes before. My wife and I visited again in August 2015. This spacious hotel has an intimate feeling about it. It was formerly the factory of one of the UK's leading glove makers. The staff are courteous and helpful. Breakfast was very good and our room was very comfortable and clean. They have a very comfortable... More

Travelling as a couple for a two night weekend break. The hotel is easy to find just on the endge of the city, from there you can walk to pretty much anywhere in the city centre. The hotel was clean and tidy, the room was fine, spacious, with room to walk around without feeling cramped. Bathroom was roomy too, all... More

Stayed one night with my 5 year old in August 2015. Hotel is close to city centre, plenty of parking, really friendly reception and bar staff and lovely room. Good price too, would recommend for families and business travellers alike. Will definitely stay here again next time in Worcester.

We stayed here thinking it looked nice. Lovely old building, character in places but souless. We felt that the staff were doing you a favour, not cheery or welcoming in any way. Breakfast was poor and after being told to find a table we did only to be told don't sit there it is set up for dinner, not even... More

First the location of the hotel is spot on, you are within walking distance of the Cathedral and all the fantastic little pubs and a great selection of restaurants. The staff were very helpful and the building itself beautiful. The rooms however are a little tired. Clean bedding, towels etc so we didn't mind staying, the furniture and decor just... More

We stayed at this hotel as a stop over for a night out in Worcester. On arrival we found there was a private party on but in fairness to the hotel they had put notifications out around the hotel advising of the noise but that the music would stop at midnight (it did) the issue was not the music but...

The Carvery is better than most I have tasted in Worcester, would definitly recommend and visit... More
