“Good but a bit noisy at night!”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

The room was OK, the windows were well insulated from the elements and outside noise but we were both woken up several times in the night by over energetic door closers on fire and room doors slamming as late night (2.00am - 3.00am) guests returned. The guests were not over noisy themselves but the sound insulation between the room and corridor was poor, which was a shame. Have stayed in other rooms in this hotel without the same problem. Evening meal OK for the price, although the chicken breast was a little dry and the new potatoes overcooked. Breakfast was excellent! Staff very friendly and helpful. And despite my slightly negative comments I would stay there again.

Stayed here overnight on business. The reception staff were friendly and efficient-much better than in some of the higher priced chains I've stayed in. The room was well decorated and spotlessly clean. I was in one of the lovely old rooms with oak beams . It was quiet and the bed was very comfortable
Dinner was excellent and very good value. Breakfast was superb with a great choice of cooked to order food rather that the wilting buffet you get in some hotels, i had smoked salmon and scrambled eggs-scrummy!
Dining room staff were friendly and efficient.
Outstanding value for money. Would love to have a weekend away here.

Room Tip: If you have any mobility problems one of the new rooms or a ground floor room might suit you better...

I finally managed to get a room of two nights, after staying in Worcester 3 times on business before. I had eating here 4 times on previous business trips. The room was in older part of the Inn as such small but clean well furnished the extractor in the bathroom did not work after reporting it, it was repaired straight away. The breakfasts were excellent top marks here. I had eating here in the evening 4 times before on previous visits. This time it just did not measure up to the previous meals, I had here. First night out of steaks and meals served on cold plates, the seconded night my companion ordered a meal after the starter he was told that they had run out of it, he was offered a free meal due to this which as fine. Unfortunately, I believe my main course fish and chips seamed to have been left under a hot light for to long.

So in conclusion nice place to stat in town centre, noise issue being town centre no problems, rooms very nice clean etc, breakfast great, evening meals not up their previous standard. I will go back to stay again I have one more evening meal to see if previous standards has retuned.

Needed a hotel to stay close to Worcester Cathedral. A price of £69 for two including breakfast was astounding as I put the breakfast on a par with many much more expensive places. Staff very helpful, friendly and efficient. Meal in evening well presented and good quality, and beers well kept

Sleep quality rated poor due to being in room facing main road. Understand some rooms face away from road. Wouldn't be a bad idea to hand out ear plugs to occupiers of main road rooms

Room Tip: Ask for room away from road OR ear plugs
