          Beautiful historic building converted into a very attractive hotel inside.

          It was very obvious that my room had not been hoovered for quite some time as there were lots of bits on the floor and small paint flakes on the bathroom floor. The furniture in my room whilst trying to keep in with old historic building was just a bit to shabby and battered. Its a pity as this could have been one of the better hotels I have stayed in.

        • Older travelers
          6.0

          Location, hotel staff, breakfast, convenient car parking and welcome on arrival.

          Furnitue in room looking very tired and worn, towels frayed and looking more like a floorcloth. Poor signing making finding your way back to lobby / restaurant difficult.

          10.0

          I was so pleased with my first stay at this hotel, that it was my first choice for this second visit to Worcester. Rooms are warm, clean and spacious and the hotel is perfect for exploring the city. I am also impressed with the very warm welcoming nature of the staff who are ever helpful and make you feel very relaxed. I will certainly use the hotel again on my future visits to Worcester.

          No nothing I did not like about the hotel. I would only perhaps suggest a better illuminated or clearer sign from the dual carriageway as on my first vist I arrived in the dark and managed to drive straight past partly because the hotel was obscured by trees and had to go around the one way system again when I realised my mistake.

        • Older travelers
          5.8

          The hotel is well situated and within a short walk of the city centre. The rooms are large and there is tea making facilities provided in the room.

          The rooms are dated and in need of refurbishment and did not include breakfast. Breakfast was an extra £11.95 per person.

        • Older travelers
          4.4

          Bathroom floor not clean, especially under towel rails, floorboards creaked when walked on, including hall ways as late room occupants clearly demonstrated, extortionate charge for using credit cards to pay account( £3.99 on a £74.00 bill). Approx 6%. not recommended as value for money by our experience, eric uren

          Proximity to city centre.

          3rd floor indow opened onto publicly accessible patio -- very odd. Made my wife nervous.

          Nothing special It is a city centre commercial hotel.

          There was a credit card charge of £6.75, which was not made apparent at the time that I booked. This was just a "rip off". If you use a credit card anywhere elsewhere with the exception of the airlines, the vendor or merchant carries the cost. The receptionist accepted my point and she went to speak to her manager, who was sitting at a desk in an inner office. He obviously told the receptionist that there was no waiver. He did not have the manner to come to the counter to talk to me.

        • Older travelers

          Lovely comfortable and quiet room. Ideal location, just a few minutes walk from city centre. Plenty of parking.

          Breakfast not included in price and not good value. Reception not properly manned on arrival - had to wait woith 3 other guests for any staff to show up!

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Being four minutes walk from where I was working on the visit.

          It seemed to be staffed entirely by schoolchildren who were very willing but somewhat inexpert. The presence of an adult manager would be beneficial.

          I was attending a wedding so the location was convenient. The hotel staff were extremely helpful.

          Too thin toilet paper. Creaking floorboards - Josephine.

          7.0

          Location - good for the city and the road network. Staff - friendly competent and helpful, both reception and chambermaid. Plenty of car parking space.

          Bathroom electrics - neither extractor fan nor hairdryer workred. Food poor value, for example we found breakfast for half the price in the city.
