First the location of the hotel is spot on, you are within walking distance of the Cathedral and all the fantastic little pubs and a great selection of restaurants. The staff were very helpful and the building itself beautiful. The rooms however are a little tired. Clean bedding, towels etc so we didn't mind staying, the furniture and decor just...

We stayed at this hotel as a stop over for a night out in Worcester. On arrival we found there was a private party on but in fairness to the hotel they had put notifications out around the hotel advising of the noise but that the music would stop at midnight (it did) the issue was not the music but...

Booked a Carvery at The Fownes Hotel for the first time today and have to say was very enjoyable for the whole family and friendly service from a lovely waitress Kirsty who made the whole family feel very comfortable and looked after us all. The Carvery is better than most I have tasted in Worcester, would definitly recommend and visit...

2 night stay for local festival nearby. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms and communal areas were very clean. Although we cannot speak about other rooms, ours, although kept very clean, was unfortunately in need of an update in décor. Bathroom had cracked tile and chip in the bath and bedroom carpet was showing wear in areas. Bedroom furniture mismatched. Details...

The Fownes history is fascinating. The hotel itself appears to have been opened circa 1986 after it's conversion from a derelict glove factory. To my mind not much investment since then. The car park is potholed and cracked and is annoyingly "monitored", it's easier to send out fines than to break into the cars nowadays, and much more lucrative. Reception...

This hotel was every thing we needed. In the middle of a very interesting part of Worcester, being walking distance from the Cathedral and the Commandery, both amazing. The staff were all friendly and polite. Whatever you were looking for, they provided it for you. Very good value for money, nice, big, airy bedrooms. Very clean and welcoming. Food was...

I organised a family reunion last month for 30 adults and ten children. I was apprehensive that our wide age range (4 months to 80+ ) including some people with mobility issues, would be a problem, but all staff were extremely helpful, well organised, and could not do enough for us. I was shown the private room where our meal...
