I stayed here for one night while on business and found the hotel to be ideally situated to explore Worcester from after work. The room was clean and comfortable with a nice bathroom. The bar and restaurant facilities were also good and breakfast was very pleasant.

Very nice Ribeye steak with Diane sauce, was delivered hot and piping also was delicious all washed down with a perfectly poured pint of Guinness. We visited about 4pm and it was pretty quiet, but enough diners to make it not like some grave yard pubs I've found myself in. Nice enjoyable visit.

We moored a narrowboat near the pub and went looking for somewhere to eat. There are a number of overpriced places in the area so we were delighted to find that it was not only reaonably priced but also serving an excellent menu with friendly service. As we did not stay we cannot comment on the overnight accommodation there.

This is a lovely, quirky property in downtown Worcester with on premises Pub. Staff very friendly. Rooms were more than adequate and it wasn't too noisy. Walking distance to Worcester Cathedral and restaurants. Very pleasant stay overall.

Visited for short stay. Really disappointed. Shabby and not really very clean. Bathroom particularly. Didn't smell very fresh either. Noise level from street went on till very late at night and started again around 6am in the morning. Therefore a good night's sleep was not easy. Unfortunately I couldn't recommend this hotel although its locality is near to attractions.

Good central location, so noise abated after 11pm. Heavy delivery and rat run traffic 5am onwards clearly audible despite secondary d/g. Room and facilities fine but as with all the hotel could do with a dose of T.L.C. Food fine, good value for money. Staff very friendly, obliging and competent. Not disabled friendly but it's old

My partner and I fancied a long weekend in Worcester, and booked at "Ye Olde Talbot". There is no parking at the hotel, but there is a NCP car park right next door, and you get a discounted rate.

The location of this hotel is good, the power shower in the bathroom is great, however that's about it. The room and bathroom need updating. They are rundown with the furniture looking like something out of the 1960s with cobwebs also in the room. The tiles in the bathroom had mould on them and the toilet seat was stained. The... More

Location couldn't be better, as it is on the ancient Friar street, with loads of old Inns, buildings, bars etc. Just around the corner from the Cathedral. Parking in the multi storey car park next door was convenient, though not cheat at £21.00 for two nights. The decor in the room itself was tired, though everything worked. Good shower, comfy...

The hotel itself is well situated on a great street with plenty of restaurants and bars. However this is where all the noise comes from. 0530 on average someone decides to empty a bottle bank outside your window. 0600 a road sweeper. Then the guests start to wake and the building becomes a boom box off water and doors slamming... More
