The hotel isn't much to look at from the outside, but inside is a different story. The entrance hall was immaculate and very welcoming and the bedroom was enormous, spotlessly clean with an ensuite as big as my bedroom at home(!), and a separate toilet. The view from the bedroom was picturesque as the hotel is perched up on a hill overlooking a bend in the river and Worcester race course. The bed was very comfortable and the room was fully equipped with television, tea/coffee making facilities and toiletries.
The owner was very friendly and welcoming upon my arrival, and also incredibly helpful in suggesting a very well-directed running route for me! The hotel is a short 15 min walk down the hill into town.
Breakfast was delicious (a mountain of freshly made scrambled eggs with toast and salmon, plus a plate of fruit).
Couldn't recommend this place more.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Barrington House is a very beautiful four storey Georgian property in a walled garden on the banks of the River Severn. We enjoy panoramic views, to our right the cathedral, straight ahead to the racecourse and fading to the left into green fields.I absolutely love living in this house and to wake every morning to see the swans and the odd barge chugging down the river is just so peaceful and tranquil. But please don’t take my word for it, come and experience it for yourself. ... more less
