2 night stay for local festival nearby. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms and communal areas were very clean. Although we cannot speak about other rooms, ours, although kept very clean, was unfortunately in need of an update in décor. Bathroom had cracked tile and chip in the bath and bedroom carpet was showing wear in areas. Bedroom furniture mismatched. Details...

The Fownes history is fascinating. The hotel itself appears to have been opened circa 1986 after it's conversion from a derelict glove factory. To my mind not much investment since then. The car park is potholed and cracked and is annoyingly "monitored", it's easier to send out fines than to break into the cars nowadays, and much more lucrative. Reception...

This hotel was every thing we needed. In the middle of a very interesting part of Worcester, being walking distance from the Cathedral and the Commandery, both amazing. The staff were all friendly and polite. Whatever you were looking for, they provided it for you. Very good value for money, nice, big, airy bedrooms. Very clean and welcoming. Food was...

I organised a family reunion last month for 30 adults and ten children. I was apprehensive that our wide age range (4 months to 80+ ) including some people with mobility issues, would be a problem, but all staff were extremely helpful, well organised, and could not do enough for us. I was shown the private room where our meal...

I was more than apprehensive after reading the reviews. Easy check in. Good size room and decor adequate. Bathroom also of a good size and all areas clean. Excellent free wifi. Do not understand why previous reviews have been so critical. Breakfast standard but of good quality. Would stop again

we stayed one night at this hotel and it was clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great - help yourself to cooked and cereal. Toast in a proper toaster. Some parts of the decor were a bit tired e.g. furniture and bathroom. However this didn't detract from a very enjoyable stay.

This was my second stay at Fownes and I'd hoped it had improved since I last visited years ago, I was wrong. Reception is fine, but as soon as you walk through the unbearably hot corridors to your room you get a sense the place hasn't been updated for about 30 years. Tired, worn carpets, scuffed paint and and odd...
