Easy to come and go at will. Free wifi Excellent breakfast Comfortable Good choice of evening menu at reasonable prices. Staff very friendly and helpful
Housekeeping perhaps needs more attention. Thick dust on top of TV and some on skirtings. Otherwise was fine.
Great location, comfortable bed and good sized room.
Let down by not having warm/hot water for a shower in the mornings and having to make do with a cold sink wash on first morning as no hot water at all. Had a warm bath next morning but no hot water from shower. Very odd! (P.S. warm showers where possible in the evening).
Nice location near to the old town with lots of Real Ale pubs and some nice eateries near by, within walking distance of the Cathedral, and museums. Lovely cooked breakfast, nice spacious room, friendly helpful staff.
Rooms were a little tired, but this is a very very small niggle, as the location and the efficiency of staff more than made up for this.
Older world nature of the hotel and excellent breakfast
I choose the Talbot every time because of its great bar, cheap beer, and quirky rooms, some with four poster beds. Breakfast is cooked individually. The location is perfect, right opposite the Cathedral, which as a hard core Christian suits me well.
They are currently experiencing problems with house keeping which meant that on one day of our four night stay the room was not made up. I have used this hotel at least 10 times before and never experienced this issue previously.
Comfortable rooms, excellent breakfasts
Noisy sing along on Friday night kept us awake until midnight
Good position and handy for restaurants. Good value pub food.
Décor is very tired, needs doing up. Our ground floor room was very close to the street so a bit noisy but could have been worse.
Very nice, comfortable hotel located in the centre of Worcester. Ideal for site seeing and travel links. Staff were very friendly with a professional attitude to their business. Breakfast was excellent and served to us with a smile!
Nothing, everything better than we expected.
The breakfast was amazing.
All, including the breakfast
The food and the staff were brilliant and the room was clean, expected from its locality on Friday very noisy outside room 29.
bathroom door would not close, looks like it has been worked on but needs more planing off (or building is subsiding ), car parking fees did not work so having to pay out 12.50 per night for parking takes the cost up and maybe next time I am in Worcester I will look for hotels with parking as I had on my last visit. I do come to worcester bosch factory on training and find staying the night before helps as it is a three hour drive from harlech.
Everything went well
Not told how to get in when coming in late
The staff are invariably friendly and attempt to be accommodating at all times. The breakfast is a good one and the meals in the restaurant are tasty and nicely served. The pub is a pleasantly convivial one.
There are major problems with the building's plumbing. The fixtures are modern but the pipes must be far past their prime. Hopefully the owner's will spend the money for these repairs before they destroy the integrity of a delightful old hotel.
Location, location, location! The staff in the dining room, pub, and reception were all super. Breakfast was very good.
The showers. Mine was aimed straight down, too close to the wall, with no way to adjust it. I got a lot of water on the floor, and not enough on myself. There seemed to be other plumbing issues as well, not surprising for a hotel of that age.
staff were friendly and attentive
lobby on upper floor-pungent aroma of damp. in need of re-decoration throughout. bedroom 20 filthy windows that were immidiately noticeable on entry to the room, not just recent dirt but they had obviously been filthy both inside and out for some time. cracks to plaster in bathroom and sanitaryware.
The staff was remarkable, welcoming and efficient, making one feel at home. Responding to all requests and anticipating some. The sense that one was in another time zone and culture. Cleanliness.
We were late checking in because of traffic, arriving at 11.15pm and the staff were very welcoming and helpful! Amazing breakfast, huge range of choice and excellent range of continental choices. Stayed in a four poster bed room and it was very comfortable and definitely worth what you pay!
The staff were excellent - efficient and friendly. The food was pleasant, and the fresh fruit at breakfast was especially appreciated. Everyone seemed happy to make our stay enjoyable.
The rooms were very hot (as was the weather!) and rather noisy late at night. Breakfast coffee was horrible - not up to the standard of everything else.
Scavenging gulls, road-cleaners, dustcarts and delivery vehicles with racing engines outside bedroom window from day-break.
Very friendly and helpful reception.
staff were trying hard to battle with a sinking ship...the whole place is in desperate need of careful modernisation....windows couldnt open except with the aid of a coat hanger, and the fans and extractor fans were useless as the water heater was so close to the room and on full blast.....now know what the greeting "a warm welcome" meant......maybe I should come visit in the depths of winter, but never again in the heat of summer.....when i needed to be fresh for a performance in the cathedral....
airless rooms and interior of hotel.....breakfast was very dry, old scrambled egg had been lying in the kitchen for some time I suspect....very untasty coffee...no real coffee available....olde worlde coffee too...the leaking pipes over the breakfast tables seemed to provoke nothing but amusement amongst the staff...I would have been ashamed to charge people for anything in that state of disrepair.. just not good enough for 190GBP for two nights.....
Room too hot even with window open and fan on full all the time. Stayed in same room during winter and overheated then too. Will request a diff.one next stay. The location is so handy for cathedral and all other aspects okay so wouldn't dismiss it because of this. Also staff suggested mentioning it in any future booking so they do listen
This is a an inn hotel situated across the road from the cathedral and with all the city shops just behind and an easy walk from Worcester Foregate railway station. Staff are friendly, cheerfully helpful both at Reception and in the bar. An old building, there are stairs to the bedrooms. Mine had good facilities, though heavy slightly dated furniture. Breakfast was good and the bar food pub grub.
A nostalgic stay in a pub/hotel I know so well from the days we (WRFC) changed for rugby. It was very cosy and comfortable then with good beer and atmosphere. Little has changed despite a gap of 60 years! A very enjoyable stay.
Great staff and just a lovely place to stay in a lovely City !!!
