Duly noted the points for improvement and I think the management has done a good job of addressing previous issues. Staff, whether in the pub or at front desk, were hard-working, very friendly, and very helpful. Loved our room, well-appointed and clean. Breakfasts were fantastic. Prices very reasonable for good food and drink in the pub. We have no qualms...

Other reviewers have highlighted the downsides of this hotel - the need for more staff and a lick of paint. I'd add one more - the depressingly subterranean room lighting. But let me pick up the good points. The location is excellent. Although we had a street level room, it was very quiet: we slept undisturbed until bin lorries arrived...

Positive: The staff was nice and they also let me print my boarding ticket because I had no other possibility to print it on a Sunday. Just a point: we had to ask some of them to speak a little bit slower as they didn't seem to realize how difficult it is to understand English when it is not our...

We visited from Thursday 9th July to Sunday12th July and enjoyed our visit to an Old English Inn as usual. The hotel was tired and needs a lick of paint and new carpet. Also the smell of damp in the corridor outside our room was very bad. The staff were friendly and helpful. The tables in the restaurant could have...

A great location for Worcester and the cricket ground!The hotel is well equipped and spacious although a lick of paint and a new carpet here and there would improve its appearance.Excellent cooked breakfast with plenty of options A bit noisy and the recently arrived seagulls in Worcester can be annoying!
