2 night stay with husband and another couple at end of October 2010.
Welland House is an excellent B&B and we would have no hesitation in recommending it.
Exceptionally good quality accommodation, in a convenient location which is very reasonably priced. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and come with tea/coffee tray, including treats like kit kats and rocky bars, flatscreen tv and are much better than we would expect for a B&B in this price range. The en suite facitilities are also very good, with plenty of room.
Glenda pays great attention to detail, is very friendly and welcoming and makes you feel instantly 'at home'. The breakfast is well cooked, well presented and with plenty of choice.
A 10 minute walk past the cricket ground across the bridge and you are into the heart of Worcester. Plenty to do whatever the weather. We had a lovely riverside walk down to the Diglis Lock and then over the Diglis Bridge and back up the other side (approx 1.5 hours). Plenty of good shops (national and independant)coffee shops, cafe's, restaurants, pubs and bars to suit all tastes and budgets. The cathedral is worth a visit.
We ate at O'Neill's on Friday night and then (at Glenda's suggestion) booked a table and ate at The Quay on Saturday night. This restaurant is run by the owner/chef and the food is superb. 2 courses £17 or 3 courses £21 and worth every penny.
If you are planning a visit to Worcester and wondering where to stay....look no further than Welland House - you won't be disappointed.
