This is good place to have a nice chat and drink with inexpensive food and drink. It’s very central and opposite the cinema and close to the cathedral. We went here twice during our visit and would recommend it purely on price and choice of food.

Stayed here for a week while on business in Worcester.. staff are great.. food is good and the beer too. Close to town center where there is plenty of bars and various restaurants. I can definitely recommend this venue.

Short break to Worcester, first of all lovely staff and very accommodating, close to the city centre and plenty to do. Now the hotel is very tired and in need of a bit of TLC. Unfortunately it’s very near two main roads which was a bit noisy throughout the evening and night. Food was good and reasonably priced. Service was good, staff seem to work long hours so be appreciative

Very convenient city centre location for shops and restaurants but inevitably that means some street noise. I was on ground floor looking into Friar Street and it really wasn’t bad at all. Very friendly staff throughout. Efficient reception. The room was a bit gloomy - dark traditional furniture and colours plus dim lights. Very clean. Bed was very comfortable. Bathroom was compact, bath very narrow, overbath shower powerful. To be honest a wider bath or a shower cubicle would have made showering much more pleasant though. Took ages to get cold water flowing. Breakfast was good portion size and well presented (apart from soggy toast!) Overall, a well run basic hotel offering decent comfort and hence reasonable value for money.

On a dull and rainy day in Worcestor the cheerful service and good pub grub was a real tonic. The pub is warm and friendly, staff told us how long we could expect to wait for the food, the beer was excellent and the food was satisfying.

What a great place to stay, from checking in to checking out it was a an enjoyable experience. I was checked in with no bother and wound my way upstairs, to find my single room. It was small but clean and comfortable, with a bathroom and a decent sized bath. I was there for two nights, slept well with minimal noise. Breakfasts were excellent with a good help yourself breakfast bar and a great selection of hot food cooked to order. A late sandwich lunch there with a friend was also very good. The staff were very friendly, the hotel was warm and inviting and it was a decent price. Will I be back? Definitely I will.

This was our second visit. The twin room was clean, comfortable and the radiator very efficient in keeping the room warm. Plenty of very hot water in the bathroom. Breakfast was excellent, choice of cereal, fruit and pastries followed by a good selection of hot food which was cooked to order. Staff all very pleasant. Good location for the centre of Worcester with a good range of shops and restaurants. Only minus was the noise from the other guests, not really the hotels fault but walls are old and thin with sound travelling. Didn't spoil our stay and we would book again.

Went here recently to sample some of Ye Olde Fayre.... I have to say from walking in the door to walking out it was an excellent experience. Could not fault it on this visit. It seemed to unfold as the perfect dining experience for me today. Greeted straight away by smiley and friendly barmaid. Ordered fish and chips and a drink. Sat at my table and waited less than 10 minutes and the food arrived nice and hot, looking very well presented on the plate. Was asked after 5 minutes if all was well with my food; to which I replied it was really good. The environment and decor is nice inside. Inviting and warm. Friendly staff. Moderate prices and some mains deals were on offer. Do go and try this lovely place.

We decided to pop in for tea as I really didn’t fancy cooking and was pleasantly surprised . We all decided to have burgers 2 cheddar and smoked bacon and 1 southern fried chicken the order was taken very efficiently by shelley . We then only waited a short time for the food , the waitress jess then asked if there was anything else we required . Overall a really good experience and we will be back . Thanks

If you like buildings with character then this is the hotel for you. The sloping floors and the thick walls are something to behold. We saw two rooms and they were both quite spacious with plenty of storage. The facilities for guests are bang up to date with everything for tea and coffee making, a TV, a hairdryer, shower gel and above all crisp clean sheets. We ate in the restaurant and the food was nicely cooked, hot and with plenty of it. After dinner we had a few drinks in the large bar, which was lively without being rowdy, and a very pleasant place to wind down after the trials of the M5... There was a small complement of staff who worked long and hard to help the guests have a pleasant stay, and were very cheerful, charming and always ready with a smile and a quick wit, thank you guys! Highly recommended.
