“Fab Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

Just come back from a two night stay at the Fownes Hotel in Worcester.
My wife and I enjoyed our stay in the Fownes which is a converted Glove Factory from Victorian Times. Lovely old building and great staff who looked after us very well during our stay.
The breakfast both mornings was excellent and staff very helpful.
We got a great deal which included dinner on the first night which again was excellent but very few guests having dinner so the dinning room was quiet.
Large bedroom with en-suite bathroom with a Bath! Lots of towels and room clean, 32" LED TV with DVD player so bring DVD,s for the kids.
We saw a couple with a big Dog so speak to them direct if you want to bring your DOG.
The place was refurbished a few years ago and some parts are looking a little worn with a IRON burn mark on the carpet but it is an old building with FREE PARKING in a Great location with Great staff!!!!
Check out the Fownes Website to see the easter offers and go visit the beautiful city of Worcester.
The Cathedral is simply stunning with a crypt and one thousand years of history ( Give or take a hundred years) walking along the canal where it meets the River Seven in the sunshine is glorious.
This Hotel would also make a great venue for a wedding as it has a great function room and offers a good value wedding package.
Loved every minute of our stay in Worcester and the Fownes Hotel so thank you too all the staff from Damien and Sarah

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the car park away from the main road and slept very well. Room was clean...

Receptionist who booked us in clearly wanted to be somewhere else. Room very basic and only 2 towels - I mean no hand towels at all just 2bath towels. Phone would not work to ring room service or reception. Breakfast ok but egg was like eating a plastic one and baked beans looked like they had been there for hours. Signs suggest a gym but there isn't one. At least parking is free. It's close to city centre. Cleaning needs improvement as well.

Just had a gorgeous meal for two in the hotel restaraunt. Food was excellent, servicec was very quick and curteous. Overall a very enjoyable experience, highly recommended. We were non residents as restaraunt is open to all, very reasonable prices as well.

Second visit to Fownes Hotel; excellent value for B&B. Good spacious and clean rooms (one obviously recently redecorated) and breakfast. Ideal location for city centre with cathedral, Royal Worcester Museum, Commandery, Great Friars and the river all less than ten minutes walk from the hotel. Being able to leave the car at the hotel meant a great saving on parking (especially as the hotel is willing to let you park before you officially book in, and for a while after you have booked out). It's also handy for visiting the university - either a half hour walk or five minutes in the car - which has been our main reason for being in Worcester!

Room Tip: There is some road noise for rooms at the front of the hotel by the road (those with numbers 215 and...

I called the hotel to enquire about hiring the venue for a party and booking one of their function rooms.
Some guy on reception took my details as he said the lady who deals with it was on the phone and she would call me back....
Still waiting.
Big party booking lost.
Awful customer service.

Lovely characterful hotel, pleasant staff and good service, nice food.
Breakfast nice but very over priced at £8.50 per head and there was also no hairdryer in the room which for a hotel of this standard I thought was strange, but will stay again.
