Reviewed 18 August 2014

It's a new hotel, so you would expect it to be clean and tidy, and it is. Friendly staff or the option of an automatic check in. The hotel itself is quiet inside and as it's right on New Road that's important. Shower had great pressure, WiFi worked and the staff were knowledgeable and polite.
The view from my room (311) was straight onto the Worcestershire CC cricket ground where I watched an hour or so of the game against Gloucestershire.
Decent price and very convenient for me. I visit Worcestershire often and this is one of only 2 hotels I now consider for my trips.

Booked this hotel as I had booked a box at the cricket on Friday 15th August for customers.
great location, great staff and what a lovely comfortable bed, also very clean and quiet.
The only drawback was the breakfast, as it was not that busy they had not set up the buffet but were cooking to order, we had only just collected our cereals and the breakfast arrived, so much for "cooking to order".it was such a shame the fried eggs were like bullets and cold and the bacon was also cold, I did not want to make a fuss as my customers were also seated at the table. Such a shame as it put a dampner on the stay so please if you say you are cooking fresh then make sure it is hot.I spent around £1000 for ten rooms and would have thought the breakfast would have been better

This is one of the most modern Premier Inns I've stayed in. Rooms are large well decorated and spotlessly clean.
Bar is lovely overlooking Worcs County Cricket Ground.
Staff are friendly but lack the knowledge of how things work and what's in the local area.
£4.50 for overnight parking is a rip off as parking is shared with cricket ground. What kind of council lets you build a huge hotel with no parking?
Also surely Premier Inn have covered their investment in wifi and no longer need to charge ?
Great location, quality hotel but some improvement needed to match the best hotels in this chain.

Stayed overnight here for the cricket matches on two consecutive days . Found the room far too warm , tried to resolve this by asking at reception , but this was still too hot (no option to open windows). Good view overlooking the pitch . Is 19%C normal for a hotel room ?

This is a great place to stay if you like cricket but they need to sort out their room allocation system. I stay over in Worcester every summer with a couple of friends to watch cricket so this hotel was the obvious choice. We booked 6 months in advance and I requested rooms overlooking the cricket ground 4 months in advance. On arriving (11/8/14) we were put in rooms facing the opposite way and i was told by the receptionist that the rooms facing the cricket were all allocated on a first come first served basis. I asked her if requesting the rooms 4 months in advance would have made me one of the first but she wasn't interested in helping. Another member of staff (Adam) asked what the problem was and after I explained he went away and came back with a change of room. I think they may try to keep the best rooms for the people arriving on the day who are not getting a discount for booking early.
That said, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the other staff were very friendly and helpful. I will definately stay there again if I can get a room overlooking the ground. If you don't like cricket the view the other way is beautiful too.

Room Tip: it depends on whether you like cricket

After having a mess up with accommodation at a pub outside Worcester, we booked into the new premier inn in Worcester. £147.00 dinner with glass of wine, beer or soft drink, Double bedded room ,breakfast eat as much as you want. This accommodation overlooked the cricket grounds, great view, the bedroom was clean tidy,coffee/tea facilities, bed comfy, evening meal good and breakfast excellent, staff friendly and very efficient. It was far better than the so called exclusive hotel we stayed in Lower Beeding, W Sussex the week before. Top marks Premier Inn

Room Tip: Room overlooking the cricket grounds.

Nice location with views of cricket ground from room we had, though windows don't open. Car park is owned by cricket club with cheap rate overnight parking though only till 8am - but 9am would be much more sensible.
Entering Reception you are met by two huge self-service check-in screens with a member of staff tucked behind. We were told that we had to check-in via the terminals - no option for dealing with a real person (as happens at airports and supermarkets). Found this VERY unwelcoming compared to usual friendly P.I. welcome and not what you need after a long journey. Found some of the screens confusing or seemingly unnecessary. Poor person behind desk was having to deal with a lot of grumbles. Was told that check-in screens are being gradually installed at all P.I.s - makes us much less likely to use them in future. Price (£92) seemed much higher than usual (£65-70) maybe this is time of year. Restaurant had a lot of things "off" because of delivery mix-up they said. Hot section of breakfast buffet was not in use as things were "a bit quiet" wer were told. Not surprised...
