Not one of the most expensive places to stay in my home town of Worcester and good value for money. We stayed here when I was best man for a friend. We were allocated a nice ground floor room across the courtyard. No noise, comfortably furnished. I made reception aware that the other party checking in were, in fact, a...

My wife and I were in Worcester looking for somewhere to get an inexpensive early meal, and a passer-by suggested the Talbot. It was definitely a good suggestion. We both had excellent meals and received very attentive service. My wife opted for pork belly from the "chef's specials" and swore it was like her mother used to make. Both meals...

In the heart of the city, friendly staff comfortable room, great valus for money. Everything of interest in the city within easy walking distance, subsidised public parking next door to the hotel, extremely convenient.

When I arrived at the hotel the check in was really speedy and the staff were very nice. My room was spacious and the bed comfortable but I could hear everything from the street outside. Only real gripe with the actual room was the noise from the outside and lack of air con, especially on a hot summers day. The...

Thank-you for your review of the room and evening meal. I will certainly feed your comments around our Chicken Nicoise back to our chefs. We have tried to be a little different with this particular salad and can only apologise if that wasn't made clear on our menu. Again please accept my apologies. Simon Jones

Stayed for one night.. Very close to the Worcester cathedral which was closed when I was there but got to hear the bells chime... great!. Hotel room was basic, small and a little stuffy. TV was small and a shower curtain which I can't stand... sorry personal choice. Had a comfortable sleep until 6am when every delivery was arranged for...

Handy location as right in the centre of town, but that made it incredibly noisy. I realize that can't be avoided if you are in a busy centre, but it felt like the binmen were emptying bins in our bedroom! Struggled to sleep much after 6.30 am and could not have the window open. They say it's double glazed but...

Hotel is lovel and central for everything. Rooms are very comfortable with tea/coffee. The breakfast choice is great .... Pastries, cereals, juice, toast and cooked breakfast of your choosing. Staff were great, very polite and helpful ( they kept my ice packs in freezer) . I would definitely stay at this hotel again, and highly recommend it.
