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

I stayed at The Talbot for 3 nights. The room was a little drab and dated but spotlessly clean with everything you would need in it including an ironing board and iron, hair dryer, tea and coffee makings etc. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom seemed to be recently refurbished. The staff I met were very friendly and... More

The hotel is centrally located in Worcester, around 10 minutes walk from the train station. Check in and out was quick and professional. The hotel is quite large, our room was on the first floor with a small window facing the pub yard. We arrived late in the evening, thankfully the noise was minimal but the scent of cigarettes very...

I had a comfortable stay here in a spacious and clean room. I took advantage of the late breakfast and check out arrangements. No car lark, but there is a discount for guests who use the adjacent NCP car park. £7.00 for 24 hours. I stayed here for business but I'm seriously considering a leasure break here, for the wife...

The hotel needs money spent considering the amount we paid for a room and if your on ground floor on the road side CHANGE your room as the noice was mad and the windows didn't even lock........ Would never go there again so please note, GET ANOTHER HOTEL.
