Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife and two friends went to Worcester for an evening at the races. Stopped at the Premier at the cricket ground for the 1st time. Excellent rooms, Premier Plus, excellent views over the pitch. Nice breakfast, but could have been a lot better, we were expecting buffet, but due to the lack of guests in the hotel had to place an order hopefully receive a good stand-off hot food, unfortunately we didn’t. Poor quality items and not all as hot as they should be. Overall our stay was pleasant and I would certainly return, at the right price.?

For a 3 day beer "festival" the organisers seemed to have hopelessly matched the drinks available for the number of tickets sold.
By 2pm on Saturday well over half the beers had already sold out. By about 4pm this had increased to about 90%.
Not so much a beer festival, more a take your choice from what others didn't want.
Real shame as the venue, weather and entertainment were good and this could and should have been a great afternoon out.

I've visited many race courses at home and abroad and this is by far and away the worst.

The only good thing is the fact it is within walking distance of beautiful Worcester.

Stratford on Avon next time I'm in the area,

The racecourse is fairly small but has all you need. However, I have been left very disappointed in the bar service. You are charged 50p per glass (per drink of you don’t say youve already paid and returned your glass) but on finishing with the said glass, you can return it but you get no recompense for it??? So - why are we getting charged for the glass if there is no refund on it? It seems to be a con that the course is allowing with the staff? You take 3000 people at the course at 50p per glass, at the end of the day it’s an awful lot of money ‘in the pot’ so to speak! In my opinion this is nothing less than fraudulent activity - NOT HAPPY !!!

Great day, good win, My disabled father loved his day out, the ground is well adapted for his needs and he made good money (1st time lucky so and so). All round a great day out would recommend to anyone.

Today I went to Worcester races with the hope that things have improved since I stopped being a Annual member there a couple of years ago. The toilets are a disgrace. I took a risk and went in a cubicle. The lock was broke, the toilet seat fell off onto the floor and when I pulled at the toilet paper dispenser it came off the wall. It’s been like that for years. Surely there are managers who check the venue for health and safety and standards. Obviously not. The beer was about £6 a pint or more. You had to pay 50p for a recyclable cup. I thought you would hand the cup in after using it and get 50p back but you don’t. The bar staff are still not competent in understanding clear orders in English and struggle to use the Tills. We left after 5 races and won’t be going there again. The standards were better when I went in the 1980’s. Your better off stopping at home and watching it on tv and not risk using there awful facilities. The managers/owners need to get a grip of the place. They are letting the local area and racing down

First they send you an extensive list of "DON'TS" before you even get to the course.
No food allowed which is fine if the choices inside were reasonably priced and edible.
£9 for a cold sausage and cardboard chips. Absolutely disgusting and Tea for £2+ which you had to make yourself using condiments from one of the most unhygienic counters I've ever seen. All the serving staff were apathetic and rude. I asked about a blocked salt cellar and it was as though I had gunged it up on purpose.
The racing and views are adequate which stopped me from rating it terrible. I won't be going again. I didn't feel welcome at all.

Read the reviews and opted for Worcester races and gave them the benefit of the doubt.
What a let down , poor in every department.
Food was awful , poorly stocked expensive bars , one tote unit for the whole course , The place is in need of a major overhaul . Quite sad considering the lovely surroundings in which the course lies.

Attended the Worcrster Show on Sunday 14th August 2022 and although a great location, when the stallholders wanted to pack up and leave the site or fetch their trailers which they had to leave just outside, they were told they were unable to do this until all customers had left the site. Not surprisingly they kicked off as they were NOT made aware of this. They went and spoke to someone about this, a H&S Advisor who to be honest I felt her attitude was appalling and told everyone that she was not allowing anyone to leave the site until she said so and she had the authority to do this!! I will certainly be telling people next year not to attend this show due to the appalling behaviour of that H&S Advisor but also because I've never heard anything so ridiculous. They could easily have cordoned off a section for them to leave or bring their vehicles on site to enable them to load up and leave. Very badly handled by Worcester Council and not a successful event today!
