This Hotel is perfect for the history buff who wants to be in the middle of Worchester City centre. It is not for the traveler who is accustomed to luxurious conditions. It was nostalgic for me (history buff) to stay in what has essentially been an inn there in the same place for 800 years... and we really wanted to... More

Stayed for one night (thankfully). Chap on reception very helpful and cheerful. That's about as good as it gets. We got the legendary room 20 overlooking Friar street. First thing I noticed was the window latch had snapped off, the windows themselves were filthy. The room was a fair size, with a comfy bed and all mod cons, nice selection... More

The Talbot is nothing to write home about. Not much more than a B&B really. However, the price was very attractive. Much more in line with the genuinely cheap hotel chains you get in France, than the cheap hotels you normally get in the UK - who then charge an arm and a leg. And on top of that, they... More

I love this hotel! The staff are so friendly, my check in was smooth and welcoming, my room clean and tidy, however a little tired and aged. My stay was really comfortable, lovely and quiet considering its a town centre hotel. The bar area itself has a great atmosphere, beer quality is up! My breakfast was AWESOME! Sometimes staff were...

I must admit I have not stayed at the hotel of Ye Olde Talbot, but I keep returning to the pub for a drink or a meal. It is a really chilled atmosphere that is never rowdy just relaxed and pleasant. The decor is eclectic with modern fixtures and bare beams, big arm chairs and comfy sofas. The staff are... More

We had got quite a good deal on the hotel at £45 a night for bed and breakfast. Arrived at the hotel and the decor looked a bit tired, scratches on the wall and stains on the carpet adn thick dust climbing the stairs. The room was ok but thick dust on the lamp and furniture was a bit off... More

We stayed here for 1 night when we went to a race meeting. It is in a great location in the centre, right next to the car park and main shopping area. Our room was clean and tidy with a nice bathroom, the bar was nice and overall it can't be beat for value. We had a four poster bed... More
