The motel is close to the city. Somehow it escaped the earthquake because other accommodation not too far away was not so lucky. Furnishings are dated but the unit was clean. WIFI was good. Owners helpful and friendly. Can't complain. Cheap and cheerful, you get what you pay for!

What a shambles - this place is! It's that far back stuck in a time warp you could almost hear the tones of Vera Lynn echoing around place! I've given this place (I use the word place as the word hotel/motel would be incorrect) a one star rating simply because trip advisor doesn't let you tick zero! If your idea... More

Stayed 2 nights. Although cheap was very dated and needs a good renovation. Carpet stained and room did not have a clean feel. Tea and coffee on window sill in kitchen and was undrinkable. Toilet seemed to be not level and windows jammed and opened crookedly probably due to the earthquake. One window did not shut.Noisy at night and parking... More

We took up accommodation here for the night after flying in from Singapore. We only stayed here for 10 hours but found the place to be rather functional. There were 2 single beds in the living room, 1 double bed in the bedroom, a decent bathroom and a kitchenette. Generally happy with this brief visit, just that the shower temperature... More

Just after 1 nights accommodation after surgery as I lived 1.5 hours away, and City Worcester was the cheapest I could find. Overall very happy with the family unit we had, clean and quiet. Will definitely stay again :)

Found the service to be great, tidy basic unit with all the necessities - and great for the price.....would recommend it to anyone wanting clean, value for money with the option to cook for yourself, but still close to pubs, restaurants etc :)
