    7.4.Good.
    • 2.0.Poor

      Noisy. No hot water fir wash or shower.

      When I arrived the room I was in was right next to the lounge area. Put it this way the picture in the lounge next to the settee was the other side of our room. I did ask if poss if I could change as I had to go to bed early and be up at 6am. They said they couldn’t. I was awake most of the night with people in the lounge. As the noise was in consistent I was going to ring the reception then it went quite, then it started up again about 15 mins later. This went on and on. The reception said they couldn’t do anything as I didn’t complain at the time. The other room I book for my friend has even more of a nightmare as there was a wedding and they were more noisy than my room as she was near the main entrance upstairs. She had no hit water at all (this maybe as we were up early). Again she complained and nothing said. U could see they weren’t bothered.

      Good value overall

      it was a very pleasant stay. yes the room and decor was a tad tired but for the money i was very happy. The staff i dealt with were very nice and friendly. My only disappointment was the £10 for parking.

      Very comfortable stay.

      Very central, with just a short stroll to the Cathedral and town. Very welcoming staff. Excellent value for money. Breakfast good, however coffee from the machine was very weak, so perhaps opt for tea.

    • 6.0.Good

      Just a few negative points

      Broken floor number selector in lift 1/2 pushed inwards appeared unsafe, told it’s often out of service due to this but was in use. Double bed in room 306 very small with plug socket under a desk near to skirting board that’s wasn’t easily accessible especially for me having joint and back problems. Room also very hot. After speaking with staff and showing them the size of the bed alternative room offered. Again, location of plugs not great couldn’t access a mirror when using hairdryer and socket low down at side of desk to charge phone. Had to carry the boiled kettle across to the table where refreshments tray was. Both rooms were very clean, bed was comfy and extra pillows were available. Location was great and staff were very helpful. Photos of bigger room below. Kettle and tray were on the round table in pic 1 sockets were either left side of tv or across on the smaller cabinet at side of the bed. Mirror behind the door or in the bathroom

      Worcester Friday....

      Ideal, single evening stay....I saw other comments advising the rooms were old & that is the case, but they are large & spacious. Shower was lovely & warm and Staff were perfectly pleasant. Bit annoying that as a resident you have to pay for parking....inc that in the bill & hide it, don't make a guest pay seperately for that.

    • 8.0.Very good

      Only stayed one night, convenient for the city centre etc but it’s very tired and needs a refurbish in the rooms. Comfortable bed though. Very expensive parking £10 and not very happy with the £50 deposit we had to pay on arrival which took a week to be refunded.
