Needed a base in the centre of town, and Fownes fitted the bill completely. The hotel was created 30 years ago, renovating a famous Glove factory. Although there are new carpets in the corridors, much of the hotel retains a 30-year-old atmosphere! Our room was large, with huge windows on two sides of the room. We arrived at about 2:30...

The hotel is easy to find by car or foot and is just across the road from the main shopping area and cathedral. Free parking is included although with limited spaces for the size of the hotel. Bar prices are reasonable and the restaurant food is excellent. We didn't have breakfast but did notice the hotel was offering a room...

I booked this hotel for a weekend away, after looking at trip advisors reviews I was a little unsure what to expect., but it was great, clean, large rooms , lovely breakfast and a great location. The hotel is full of history, your about 2 minute walk from the town,with lots of bars and restaurants. Would fully recommend.

Lovely service, staff very friendly and welcoming. Clean and well presented rooms but extremely dated throughout. Restaurant was closed when we visited so didn't get to try it unfortunately. Wouldn't stay again.

I've stayed at the Fownes hotel a handful of times now as well as using them for a previous job to accommodate clients on an overnight stay. All of my trips and feedback from clients has been pleasant. Good value, good service and everything you'd expect from a hotel for the price they offer. Staff members were very helpful and...

I stay here when I have work meetings in the area and always find it perfect for an overnight stay. I would not spend a holiday there but for a fleeting visit it is affordable and with good access to local facilities and the M5. The decor, as many reviews comment on, is very dated and overall the rooms I...

This is an old mill / factory that has been tastefully converted into a decent hotel. Probably a bit too large to consider 'boutique' but its in that style nevertheless. I arrived late and it was a last minute choice but I would happily stay again. Pity I didnt see it in daylight as it seemed quite impressive. Only downside,...

My husband and I stayed in this hotel on 30 Dec to visit family in Worcester, after coming over from Australia. We chose this hotel being near to the town for walking distance ! Upon arrival of an empty reception area found it to be lacking in any soul, absolutely no atmosphere, we checked in to find we had to...

As we live in Worcester we didn't stay overnight, albeit the overnight B&B offer including 2 tickets for the party was a brilliant deal. We just attended the party which was fantastic. They supplied Bucks Fizz on arrival (only grumble was they put ice in which killed the fizz). There were two rooms one with live music, the other with...
