Not a dislike as such, just a thought. The hotel is very old, therefore it rambles, floors can be a wee bit uneven (Actually, I like that, adds character, but some won't, I'm sure). However, some of the exterior is, puzzlingly, comparatively new - a sort of grey-ish / slightly brown-ish brick on one side (Hotel sits across two streets). How this was passed by the planning folk, I don't know! Surely it should / could have been re-built in a more period cladding? Just spoils it, but purely from an aesthetic viewpoint. Personal opinion of course and does not detract from the facilities and service of the hotel and staff.
It is approximately a 15-20 minute walk to Worcester Foregate railway station, by the way; those on-line maps can be deceptive, you think places are much closer than they actually are! Yes it's not quite in the centre of the city centre, but hey, you can't physically move it! Close to the cathedral and fairly close (10-15 mins) to the river.
Traffic noise / revellers? Mmm... little bit. I was in room 10, overlooking Friar Street for a Friday night, Saturday night stay, so bound to get a little. Didn't really bother me the occasional group of people passing by - I just closed the window and slept like a log in a very comfortable bed, firm but with a bit of "give" - just right for me.!
Friendly, helpful staff, "real" people, not just automatons doing a job!
Good choice of food - breakfast was very good, as was an evening meal.
If I get to Worcester again, this is the first hotel I will look at for my accomodation. Only approx. 60 yards / metres from the cathedral, plus it's on Friar Street which is a bit olde-worlde and has plenty of choice when it comes to pubs, cafes & restaurants.
