“What a suprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2006

Well I have stayed in may hotels in the past, I booked Ye Olde Talbot Inn because it was cheaper than many hotels in Worcester and it was in the centre of Worcester, so great for sight seeing, restaurants and a cinema pretty much on your doorstep. Also 24 hour parking in the close NIS for the reduced rate of £4, you can't really go wrong with that.

This hotel was rated a 2/3 star, so I wasn't expecting much, staff in the recpetion were very helpful and polite. When we got up to the room we had a standard sized double bed, TV/DVD, CD player, tea and cofee making facilities, it was quite noisy outside with the window opened, due to it being quite hot, however the noise was gone by 11 - 12 o clock!!! Bathroom was a pleasant size with all usual amenities, couldn't fault it!

Then we awoke for our morning breakfast which was superb very nice, full breakfast was lovely, even my girlfriend being a vegetarian very much enjoyed it!!

Overall a wonderful stay in a wonderful hotel, top marks!

  • Liked — Good service, more than I expected!
  • Disliked — No pool, the only thing that you could fault it for, not that I wanted a pool!
  • Stayed March 2006, traveled as a couple

My two friends and I spent 2 nights at the Ye Olde Talbot Hotel in Worcester over a weekend. The whole of the hotel including the restaurant, bar and lounge, also our rooms and en suites, were very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Although it was a bit noisy at night outside (the hotel is situated in Friar Street in the centre of the town) the noise quietened down after 12.00 (midnight), but as we had our windows open because it was so warm, this was understandable. The staff in the hotel were very helpful and friendly and the food in the restaurant was of a very high standard. The hotel is ideally situated within easy walking distance of the town centre, Cathedral, Royal Worcester Visitor Centre and the river. We all enjoyed it very much and would have no hesitation in going back to stay in the hotel.
