Just enjoyed a long weekend stay having read reviews we requested a quiet room and very happy to have been given room 25. Very good value for the money and in a superb location to enjoy Worcester on foot. All the staff were friendly polite and helpful which helped us to have a very enjoyable weekend.

Good price and warm friendly staff. Room was adequate, with bath in the bathroom. However, black mould was underneath the faucet. Also even with the second window, the noise from the outside was still very loud. Food from the restaurant was good value for money and the breakfast was good. However when ordering the breakfast, it would have been nice...

We met up with friends for dinner and found an excellent menu at very economical prices. The cod, chips & peas on the small menu was cheaper than buying same from the local chippy where we live which was unbelievable and also very very enjoyable.

Flying visit looking for somewhere central to stop over whilst travelling back north. Very pleasant receptionist, hotel looked well but my single room was dated and small. Downstairs bar was decent size and busy for midweek, great location for high street shopping. Good breakfast although I felt some of the morning staff lacked basic customer service skills preferring.

The single room had to have a cold shower, after 10 mins of water running, only then warmed up. Stench of drains in the stairwell from the restaurant to the rooms and...

Despite the wonderful central location and very pleasant staff this has to be the worst place I have stayed in for Avery long time. A dreadful dingy single room, totally freezing. Radiator didn't work and no radiator in bathroom which had a window which didn't quite close . The manager assured the radiator was repaired when I was out to...
