Reviewed 2 November 2012

Booked on a groupon deal so not sure how good it would be. It was exceptional. The location is perfect, just a two minute walk to the town. Room very spacious and clean. We had a meal in the hotel restaurant on the first night and can honestly say it was first class, and extremely reasonably priced, as was the breakfast each morning. I would recommend this hotel if you want to stay in the town. Free car parking. Staff were extremely attentive and their customer service skills were of a standard you would expect in a high class establishment in London. We would stay here again if visiting Worcester

we booked this hotel on a groupon deal. Great location just a minute walk to town. Free parking at hotel and plenty of it. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. Rooms and hotel are ok good standard but could do with some tlc and updating but not awful.
We ate in the restaurant the first night due to good reviews on here however wished we hadn't, it was not good at all should have complained but we were tired and just left it. Had a drink in the bar and the bar food looked a lot more appealing and breakfast was good so unsure why the restaurant meals were poor, did question it on check out couldnt offer any discount and advised it was all dependant on which chef was on hmmm.
Second night we went out to eat and found a good pub with great food and plenty of other places wish we had gone out the first night.

Booked 2 nights for weekend break on Groupon. Room and facilities comfortable and in good order. Full sized bath and flat screen with freeview. Staff friendly, good breakfast and perfect location seconds walk from town centre. Worth every penny.

I booked a 2 night stay here with Groupon but was very alarmed to read some of the reviews on Trip Advisor so went along fully expecting to be disappointed. Pleased to say not disappointed at all. The hotel is in a great location . We received a warm and friendly welcome from the receptionist and all staff we encountered were friendly and efficient. The standard of cleanliness was acceptable . The breakfast was very good. The room we had (214) was very much in need of refurbishment (our room probably had the worst hairdryer in the world) as indeed from what we could see that whole side of the hotel was. However, we paid a low price and did not expect to get the best room in the hotel. We would stay here again and would be happy to pay a higher price for a better room.

After reading the reviews on this website we booked an overnight stay with some trepidation, however our worries where banished by the warm welcome, friendly staff and the ideal location with its on secure on-site parking.

The hotel is dated in some areas but this is being rectified but obviously as the funds dictate due to the current economic state. Our room was spacious, clean and adequately equipped (take your own hair dryer though) tea making facilities, flat screen Tv, heated towel rails, spacious wardrobe, and immediate hot running water are in every room!

It's not 5 Star but they are not pretending to be, breakfast was excellent which had everything you could want ( hot and cold)' well stocked bar, quiet library/ reading room with fresh coffee and tea.

With a few more licks of paint and tiling this place surely would be top class but it is good now considering the size and age of the building and it still retains some of the character from its previous use(glove factory)

IGNORE PREVIOUS REVIEWS AND TAKE A PUNT, YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 208 and it is really spacious

Very central location 200 meters from the town centre. Good sized reception area, which looks a bit tired. Rooms are large, but windows are ill fitting and heating switches off automatically in the evening. Bathrooms need updating. Furniture is battered and room needs to be properly cleaned. Staff are however ver friendly and helpful. Could be a really good hotel!

Booked for 2 nights having been given a voucher for this hotel as a birthday present. Having read the comments we were concerned about the cleanliness of the rooms etc. we asked if they had upgrades available and they had at £30 per night. Not wanting to risk spoiling the break I agreed to the upgrade and charges.
The room was fine, clean and quite big but the furnishing were old and worn. I would describe it as no better than an ordinary room in most hotels I have stayed at. On arrival (2.00pm) we passed a table in the library which had used cups, teapot etc., it was still there at 9.00am the next morning!!!!
You should note that a charge is applied if you pay for extras using a credit card.
On the plus side the breakfast was good and the free parking was a bonus with the hotel being close to the town centre.
Not sure I would stay again.
