This hotel is ideally located literally minutes from the bustling town. The room was large and spacious and included tea and coffee making facilities. The bed was king size. On the downside there is no air conditioning which was needed at the time of our visit due to the unusually hot English summer. However, there was a fan supplied in... More

Stayed here recently to meet up with some old friends. Bedroom was spacious , bed was very comfortable, good quality bed linen. Excellent shower. The ambiance in the cocktail bar was spoiled by very bright lighting, so much so that we took our drinks out and sat in the lobby ! When I pointed this out to the barman he... More

I've travelled the world and stayed in more than 1000 hotels and the Fownes Hotel in Worcester is right down there at the bottom of the pile ! The room was dirty and in need of modernisation, paintwork shabby.. window sills flaking, carpet - I dread to think what lies within .. I kept my shoes on... wish I bought... More

I've been to Fownes several times for afternoon tea in the last year, each time it has been superb. Always a good variety of sandwiches and cakes, finished off by a delicious scone with clotted cream and endless pots of tea. Fantastic value for money. Lovely hotel and the staff are always helpful and friendly

Nice exterior, a restored glove factory, but really shopworn rooms and not idea of hotel service. Where to begin? The carpets should have been replaced years ago. The towels, assuming you can get one, are so linty that you have to brush off after drying. The hairdryer in our room was broken and we were told that it couldn't be... More

Fraid the cooking of the meal was simply not up to scratch - slapdash and with little pride shown in getting things right. Warmed home made rolls still frozen in the middle resulting in a dry, tasteless stodge. A minute portion of meat (estimated 4 ounces) supposedly seared, obviously cooked too slowly so it was dry and uncharted. Just not... More

Stayed for one night for each of the last 3 years, the hotel is in need of some TLC and updating. Room was tired and those on the main road side of the hotel are noisy. Not sure how it compares price wise with other hotels in the area but I would rather pay a few quid more and get... More

We were travelling down to Dorset for a week's holiday but decided to set off the day before and stop off in Worcester. Found the hotel on booking.com and was very pleased when we arrived. Bang in the centre of town but not too noisy. And on the doorstep, almost, for the cathedral and the shops. Beautiful city... The staff... More

Just returned from a weekend stay at the Frownes Hotel and overall the group were disappointed with the stay. We stayed in room 106 which has one of the main roads into centre of town and even with the double glazing it was still very noisy. As for the room itself, they were dated and in need of a refurb...
