Lovely staff & good what more could you ask for we always go there on are way back from Birmingham Airport after a wonderful holiday with friends, I also went there for my 60th birthday and myself and 7 friends all enjoyed Worcester we came up from Tenby PEMBROKESHIRE
I booked a night in the ye old talbot as a birthday treat and to meet with old friends. The hotel was friendly, clean and tidy, good food and very well presented. I woukd book a stay again .. The hotel is situated in the centre of town right opposite the cathedral. Parking is in the multi storey behind the hotel..
Stayed seven nights at Ye Olde Talbot, used it as a base to tour the area. Comfortable and clean room, great choice of breakfast menu and evening meal. Friendly cheerful staff. Perfect location with lots of restaurants and pubs close by. Lots of places of interest in the town and surrounding areas. A very enjoyable stay. The front of the hotel can get quite noisy at weekends and early mornings.
Stayed at the Talbot Hotel on our way to Cornwall to break the trip. Only stayed for one night but could have stayed more. Nice clean room and great choice at breakfast. Ideal location for Worcester city centre Could do with more efficient double glazing as traffic is a little noisy.
After living in Worcester nearly all my life I've never been in but it's always looked nice and cosy so we finally thought we'd go for some food. I wasn't expecting a lot nor did i get more than my expectation! Starters came very fast, greasy calamari but cooked very well, then we waited 50 minutes to get 2 medium rare steaks... now I'm not a genius but I'm pretty sure it doesn't take 50 minutes to cook a steak. I work in catering and understand how under pressure at times a service can be but there was hardly anybody in there! I hope this was just a bad day & we can come back and experience the full potential of this place!
Ye Olde Talbot is reasonably price which reflects accommodation. Rooms and public areas are some what tired looking. Staff are friendly although they are all flitting from one area to another. Food average. If you want a peaceful sleep this is not for you. I didn't mind though. No lift so beware there are many stairs to rooms and public areas, book a ground floor room if you can not manage stairs. Central to city centre. I think Old English Inns need to improve and update this place. Don't be put off if you want a reasonable priced place to stay just don't expect to much.
Short stay in Worcester, our first visit. First impression not so good, dirty carpets in corridors to rooms. Good room with four poster bed, very comfortable and spacious bathroom with plenty of hot water. Downside was it being above the kitchen with noisy extractor fan on from 6.30am until late evening. Made the room hot but there was a fan. Staff very good. Breakfast excellent. Used restaurant first night, food very good. Other nights it was closed and had to eat in bar area.
Work took me to Worcester premier Inn £112 a night this one £75 including breakfast, nice room bathroom very clean food very good and reasonable prices eg nachos starter £2.99 steak and chips £6.99 and not small portions
Hotel is adjacent to their pub where breakfast is served, which was nice. Staff pleasant and helpful. Hotel is a bit tired and could do with a refurb. Bed was soft and shower powerful and hot. Parking is on street locally or multi storey next to the hotel. Hotel is between two roads. Both are busy and deliveries start about 6am. My room was street level so even with the windows closed you can hear passer bys talking. No net curtains so you need to keep the curtains shut which makes the room dark. Will be noisier when the uni students are back.
Whenever on business in the area we stay here, it's reasonable price and close to the city centre are pluses. Yes to a little tired in places and could do with an upgrade but rooms are clean and adequate. Bar and restaurant are fine and meals are lovely. Breakfast in the morning are adequate, I note what another visitor said about staffing, but we had no problems and they were friendly. Will be using again when business needs to visit.
