Oldy Worldy Charm -
Stayed for 2 nights and would definitely stay again. Not a modern, sterile type of place but a more traditional B & B with bonus of pub and food. Stayed in Gold room as a superking size bed, which was extremely comfortable. Bathroom modern with large shower. All was sparklingly clean. Rooms little cold but extra heater in room to top up and room soon warmed up. Martin (owner) extremely friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast more than enough - had cooked on one day (extra charge as website says) which was good quality. Plenty of parking. Doggy rug provided if required and welcome bonio for our pooch 😁
What a great review! hope to see you soon.

Enjoyable stay -
We were looking for a hotel in or near Worcester with parking, we spotted the Walter de Cantelupe Inn on a comparison site, which is less than 4 miles to the cathedral to give an idea of location. Choosing to book directly we were asked what time approximately we would arrive so that the owner, Martin, could be there to greet us. What a lovely touch!Free parking at the rear of the inn, perfect as I don’t want the car left two streets away or overnight in a multi story. Checking in was a breeze and we were soon showed to our room. The room was large, bright and airy. Nice and warm with the radiators on and easily turned off when we went to bed. Coffee and kettle provided with a great selection of teabags, standard tea, green, raspberry or chamomile. Very impressive, I’d actually bought my own chamomile tea bags with me but didn’t need them.The bathroom was great. An additional light over the mirror which was a big help when putting my contact lenses in and make up on. A bath with a shower, perfect as I love my baths whilst partner likes his showers and a heated towel rail so I was able to jump out the bath and wrap myself in snuggly warm towels.Despite overlooking the road, there was no road noise at night. The bed was comfy. Plug socket next to the bed, perfect for charging my phone overnight. Easily connected to the free WiFi, I didn’t test the speed though seemed very fast for what I used it for and had a good strong signal. There was some information on the area in the room and a small pile of novels which I presume is a book swap. If you have finished your book, swap it for another one.Had the continental breakfast which consisted of orange juice, tea or coffee, cereal, fruit and yogurt, (in my case just fruit, the blueberries were some of the best I have ever tasted and the melon was lovely) followed by toast with a choice of jam, marmalade, marmite etc. A cooked breakfast is available if required.Ate our evening meal on both nights at the inn which was delicious with generous portions and reasonably priced. A roaring fire to keep out the chill on the cool evenings with a relaxed atmosphere. Good selection of drinks, both soft and alcoholic.We were provided with everything we could possibly want from a room, the extra touches were noted and appreciated. Great location for Croome, Handbury Hall, Greyfriars and the wonderful cathedral. The greatest asset to the inn is Martin himself. A thoroughly nice gentleman, nothing is too much trouble. As we left, I thanked him for looking after us as that is exactly what he had done. Highly recommended.
Many thanks, you are welcome any time.

Visiting parents and taking Dad to Hospital-
I was warmly greeted by Martin on my arrival even though I had arrived later than I head expected. Martin kindly took my baggage to my room. Which was well presented, clean tidy and well equipped. I had plenty of time to freshen up before popping down to the bar for a drink.After a good night's sleep in a comfy bed, continental breakfast was served in the resturant area.I would recommend staying hear to friends and family as this is a friendly comfortable well priced, well appointed location if visiting Worcester area.Thank you Martin and your staff for a great stay.

Very good breakfast and pet friendly -
Last minute booking and not disappointed. Old fashioned pub, warm welcome to us and our two dogs. Lovely room and shower but disappointing that the sink had no hot water. Breakfast was lovely and Martin the owner was very hospitable.

A Hidden Gem! -
A characterful Inn with delightful people. Food was very tasty too. Everything about this place is charming. Recommended if you're looking for somewhere different that serves good quality food and offers a decent place to lay your head for the night. Thanks Martin. Your hospitality was outstanding.
Many thanks, Jim, for your great comments. Very much look forward to welcoming you next time you are travelling this way.Have a good weekend.Martin Lloyd-Morris

I had booked an overnight stay at the Cantelupe as my son was at Malvern college playing cricket. On our slightly early arrival we were warmly welcomed by Martin. Our room was up in the roof space and reminded my wife of our first cottage we lived in, but mind your head on the lovely original beams !Dinner in the evening was very well cooked food of a good quality and the wine list was good.After a good nights sleep the cooked breakfast was great and filled us up for another days cricket ahead.Martin cannot do enough for his guests and i would recommend The Walter de Cantelupe for a great stay.
Dear Mr and Mrs Atkinson,A huge thank you for your kind words. Yes, you were lucky enough to stay in the only room with exposed original 17th century beams - a feature, only to some guests, modern motels miss ! Reviews of our service such as yours are extremely satisfying to receive and lets the staff and I know we are on the right track. Do try and take the opportunity to come and stay again. Perhaps in the autumn. The autumnal colours are a wonderful sight in the surrounding countryside. Best wishes,Martin and Staff.

Quirky in such a good way! -
This is my second stay here and this time I had beer and dinner (which were all excellent) as it wasn't a Monday.The rooms are individually furnished and this time mine had a recently fitted shower room which was very pleasant.Bar and restaurant areas have plenty of cosy places to sit and conversation is cheerful!Parking is excellent and it's very easy to find. If commuting into Worcester for work, this is a handy location from which toaccess the city centre as some of the usual southern ring road traffic is avoided.
Thank you so very much for your comments. As always, I and the staff are really interested in how our guests find the Inn and the service received. We continually work at making improvements whether it be a physicalaspect to the property or an element of the service so helpful feedback is extremely useful. We are looking forward to welcoming you once again in the near future. RegardsMartin Lloyd-Morris

I warmly commend this establishment. We arrived late at nearly 11 p.m.(due to a road diversion) after saying we would be there between 9-10 p.m. but still received a warm welcome and a nightcap before turning in. The Proprietor was willing to provide a continental breakfast at 7 am to allow us to meet a commitment in Birmingham that morning.The place seems to be full of history which we would like to explore on another occasion.

Recent one night stay -
Very friendly welcome and good food. Comfortable room and very convenient for Worcester in a nice quiet village. Lovely breakfast. Would stay again.
Reviewer:Everly W | Mon 27th Jun 2016 | 2 years ago
Although we've stayed here on numerous occasions the time between has often been lengthy, so it's really nice to be welcomed as friends by the landlord.The room prepared for us apparently had low beams and as my husband is tall, without showing us,we were swapped to another which was quickly changed from a singe to a double.Nothing was too much trouble.We would thoroughly recommend coming here as the food is great too.I would have given it 5 stars but the 'continental' breakfast was a bit stingy;I had to ask for another piece of toast!

Trip to Worcester Raceourse -
Martin, the landlord, could not have done more to help even down to making us superb sandwiches and additionally finding us something excellent to eat at the end of a long day.The location is great, Martin is very knowledgeable about the history of the area ... a great stay and we would totally recommend.Thank you!

Quirky and intimate but closed on Mondays! -
Booked a one-night stay on a Monday night, pleased to find somewhere near Worcester with everything - real ale, dining and accommodation - all in one. Although the website states opening times to include Mondays, neither the kitchen nor the bar are open. I ended up getting a picnic from the nearby shop and the landlord kindly furnished me with a plate, serviette, cutlery and a glass.In the morning, there wasn't any hot water, just lukewarm, but the electric shower made up for that. I showered with the bathroom door open, though, as the lights had fused!The pictures make the Walter look bigger than it is- it really is cosy and I imagine than on a bustling evening with the fire going, it would be lovely. You will receive one of the warmest welcomes possible here from Martin, the landlord, who is a real landlord and not just an impersonal 'manager'.
