I visited the Fownes Hotel, Worcester, for afternoon tea today with my two daughters. We used a nCrowd voucher we had purchased for two, but I arrived as an extra. We were shown to our table by Rob, who was very helpful & pleasant. I had requested in our booking that we didn't want any dried fruit, unfortunately they didn't...

Quite frankly this is one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in. We arrived at 16:00 expecting to get ready for an evening out for a party with some friends. The problems: The receptionist was blunt, unfriendly, and impatient with our decision over breakfast. The room, even though we booked a non smokers room, stank of stale smoke, and...

Well, I always try to be fair with my reviews. The Fownes is one of these hotels that are 'okay'. The rooms are large, well heated but many of them are tired in decor, bathrooms are also large and old fashioned. Dining room is tired and not very exciting for dining. I only need somewhere to stay overnight, have breakfast...

Really disappointed and left totally underwhelmed by recent afternoon tea had here. Receptionist phones through we had arrived, we walked through to be met by nobody!! We stood around for a while and decided in the end to just take a table. A few minutes later we were served tea by the waiter who didn't utter a blooming word -...

We stayed at the Fownes with the Mendip Male Voice Choir and friends. The room we had was very nice, clean well decorated and comfortable. We could not fault the breakfast and the great buffet that was provided on the Friday night after we sang at Worcester Hospital. The staff especially Jen could not do enough for us well done...

Bought a groupon voucher a couple of months previously and needed to be used by 17 November. Don't forget to book your car in at reception for free parking when you arrive. There is a monitor near the receptionist. We were directed through to the restaurant area, through the bar and into where the carvery is being served. I would...

Met with agitated Staff at the onset. Abysmal Customer Service from bar manager responsible for serving the afternoon tea. Afternoon Tea Customers were an inconvenience to his normal day. Stale Bread used with crusts on. Poorly presented. Not value for money. Small quantity. Ended up throwing the food in the nearest bin as we walked out. Avoid at all cost...

I took my mother for Afternoon tea using a Group on voucher. Service was good although once served the staff seemed to disappear! The sandwiches were good, although I wouldn't have expected crusts! A mix of brown and white bread would also have been good. A good selection of cakes and scones, in fact too many for us to eat...

Afternoon tea was perfect, big scones, carrot cake, lemon cake and a few other little cakes plus a shared pot of tea, and glass of prosecco. This was an offer so not sure what it would be full price. The hotel itself is a little tired, great location in Worcester city centre but needs a injection of life. Unfortunately there...
