I was in Worcester for a wedding over a weekend and stayed at The Habit with my family. The Habit was comfortable, quiet, served a good breakfast and had decent WiFi. The staff were very polite which made for a pleasant stay.

It was clean, and because it was really just an overnight stop I cannot comment on the equipment in the kitchen, it seemed very sparingly... The rooms were well appointed and the parking safe. I am of the opinion that that it is prices at a... More

Was very impressed with this old house and wooden floors. We arrived late and nobody was there, but they left the bar open so we could have something to drink before dinner. The rooms was nice and cosy with enough coffee for the night. The breakfast was on time and warm. Really no hassles

In the meantime the management had changed at least once and the ownership also seemed to have changed just before our stay. However, if these were new owners they did not... More

I spent 3 very comfortable nights at The Habit. The rooms are very spacious, the garden is lovely, and the hosts are friendly and flexible. The "honesty bar" is a nice extra, especially because it is clearly not a money-making exercise but a service. I will definitely stay there if I return to Worcester.
