As of 28th July, the Fownes hotel are now doing carverys every Sunday, I came here with family and I couldn't of asked for anything better. Food was reasonably priced as when booking in advance we recieved 15% off when saying we were recommended by the staff who work there. However, even without the discount, 3 courses for £12.95 you...

Just arrived home after a superb carvery lunch at the Fownes, the beef was the best we have ever tasted, from the main course to the desert we couldn't fault them, the food was of the highest quality. Both the serving staff and the waiting staff were fantastic but special thanks to our waitress Becky who was amazing!!! We will...

Nice hotel, huge room Zero customer service skills from the staff. Sat in the restaurant listening to the chef having a rather inappropriate conversation at the top of his voice, food average. Will be eating in my room tomorrow evening I am not sitting through that rubbish again

Last week, my wife and I went to Worcester to perform some ancestry searches. For convenience we needed a hotel within easy walking distance of the city centre. The only hotel we could find with parking was the Fownes hotel and were intrigued to see what had been made of this old glove factory. Booking online was simple and the...

The staff are nice, and it's run well. It has that oldy woldy feel to it. It does need updating in places though, and some modern touches. The room was too hot, stifling at times and we all slept o top of the beds. AC really needs to be installed.

We had my husband's birthday party here on 6th June. It couldn't have gone better, from booking to the event itself. Julie, the events organiser, couldn't have been more helpful. The function room is perfect, with doors that open on to the courtyard. Yes the bar is small (as someone else mentioned) but there's a big cocktail bar next door...

This hotel gives the initial impression of being a bit rough and ready, the decor doesn't quite fit with the city centre quality hotels one gets used to on travels. However, first impressions can sometimes be misleading. Fownes provided me with everything I needed for a nights stay within walking distance of the city centre. The food was good, the...
