Friendly welcome from helpful staff. Comfortable accommodation within sight of Cathedral and close to Royal Worcester Museum, Elgar's home and shops. Several other museums and buildings of interest in immediate vicinity. Friar Street leads into the Shambles where there are small independent shops, characterful pubs and lovely old buildings. Whilst the hotel offers reasonable food, there is certainly no shortage...

Ye Olde Talbot pub & dining is great as we had dinner here & that & the breakfast was good. The room however was very basic, no effort in making it look nice especially the very tired bathroom. The bedroom walls are also very thin! All in all ok for a £60 room as it came with breakfast but would...

Arrived mid afternoon and was checked in by a very helpful girl on the desk, we had room 22 which was fine, nothing fantastic but nothing wrong with it either. Bathroom on closer inspection was a bit tired and quite a bit of dust on the pipes along the...

Stayed on a freezing cold February night, received warm welcome on reception and good to find that the Hotel was well heated throughout. As stated previously the Hotel has an excellent location for all amenities and riverside walks. Although no parking at the Hotel the NCP is only metres away with residents given a reasonable discounted rate. Regarding the Hotel...

Bar downstairs lively and nice wines. Breakfast included and very nice although we came down about 30 minutes before breakfast finished and there was no pastries/juice left, but cooked breakfast...
