Ye Olde Talbot is a charming inn right in the heart of Worcester. While not perfect, this historic inn offers great value and great food for travelers wanting to stay in the heart of Worcester.
On the upside, the Talbot is in a great location – just opposite Worcester’s beautiful cathedral and just beyond the end of the pedestrian center and the end of High Street. The hotel’s small staff was both pleasant and professional. My single room was – for a European hotel – spacious, ditto the bathroom. The food – both dinner and breakfast – was very good – a good selection, well prepared and served efficiently and pleasantly.
On the downside, the Talbot does not have an elevator and the stairs leading up to the upstairs rooms are a bit steep. I was traveling light on this trip, so that wasn’t a serious problem; however, I would not have wanted to tackle them with a suitcase. The other downside is that most visitors are directed to enter through the old carriage entrance on College Street – where the smokers sit. Ugh! After entering this way on several occasions, I discovered there was another entrance by the reception desk on Friar Street.
If you’re traveling to Worcester by train, the Talbot is your best choice – located within walking distance of Worcester’s Foregate Street Station and across from the city’s greatest attraction, its cathedral – the Talbot offers travelers pleasant rooms and good food.
