    Great but road noise let it down

    Lovely pub with good service, great staff and breakfast however we had a room at the front and there was quite a bit of road noise. Ask for a room at the back.

    We booked the smallest of the available rooms so we're not surprised that it was 'compact and bijou', saying that the room was clean and tidy and contained everything we would have expected including standard instant coffee and tea facilities with the addition of a cafetiere and associated coffee. The included continental breakfast was a revelation with a wicker basket being left outside our door ready for us to collect and enjoy, but most impressive was the amount and variety of food included within the basket, they didn't skimp but rather seemed to want to please their guests. The Cardinals Hat is very centrally located and was a pleasure to stay at, we will be happy to return and enjoy their hospitality again. Note: if you ask they will also issue you with a 20% discount voucher for the car park located just across the road.

    An excellent choice to stay in Worcester. The room was well decorated, good quality and really comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful on every interaction. Location next to the cathedral and easy walking distance to loads of shops, bars and restaurants. Parking at NCP opposite is £13 for 24 hour stay if needed. I sometimes go to Worcester for work and this was my favourite place to stay so far. Loved the hamper breakfast, mini fridge in room was useful, very comfy bed.
