If there is one thing going for this hotel it is its great location on the river and within easy walking distance of Worcester Cathedral, Worcester town centre and other attractions. Because it is one of very few hotels/bars on the river in Worcester it does get very busy on a sunny day as it has a large sitting out area with many tables. This brings the problem of long queues at the bar.
However the hotel room was clean and my room in the more modern annex had a good view of the river and was away from the hussle and bussle of the main hotel.
The restaurant is in a large conservatory overlooking the river and is very pleasant but unfortunately appeared to be understaffed. When I tried to book a table for four people at 19.00 I was asked if i would mind a booking at 19.30 as the chef would be busy with other customers before then. When we went into the restaurant at 19.25 (no one to meet, greet and seat us) there were only six other diners so hardly a mass feeding exercise was required by the chef. The food was very good but perhaps a little pricey on those dishes where vegetables were not included. The service was fine but the sole waitress, who was very good, was also having to double up as receptionist!!!
Breakfast was fine and again served in the conservatory which on a nice summer day was very nice.
Overall a good experience but just a few organisational rough edges.
(As an aside I stayed at the hotel in June 2010 and the same comments could apply to that stay also).
