Not the best for access if on the upper floors - narrow staircase. Wif-fi didn't work in 4th floor room but did on 3rd floor steps. Street parking was crowded and resident only from 9.00am in some streets, incl the one we parked in - easy to miss the sign. Expected a 6pm arrival or advice of later which is... More

It's located close to the beach, which is great. The place itself looks quite plain and ordinary from outside, the lack of a proper reception is odd but it didn't pose a problem. The staff are very nice and friendly. I stayed in a superior double room for two nights, the room was large, bright and spacey. The bathroom was... More

Such an odd guest house. It's in a great location, sea 2 minutes away, shops, cafe's & bars also only a couple of minutes away. Parking is a nightmare, I by chance got a space on the road outside as someone was leaving. As it was before 6pm I had to pay. It is free after 6. I rang the... More

We booked a Superior Double room at this hotel. There was nothing superior about it. We asked for a double, we got two single beds pushed together with sheets and quilts that did not fit so ended up lying on the mattress. The paint was chipping off the walls, there was no proper wardrobe, we were on the 3rd floor... More

Stayed at Lichfield House for one night with a friend - we won't be staying there again. When we checked in, they wouldn't leave us alone, they kept asking if everything was ok, they finally left us to it but then knocked on the door to double check is everything was ok and by that point I was getting quite...

Stayed at Lichfield for the past 6 weeks, spending 3 nights (Mon - Wed inc.) a week each time, I found the check in and check out procedures great for my needs. I have stayed in 4 out of the 10 rooms, both standard and superior and the only difference is the size of the main room. The shower room... More

We arrived on Friday evening unaware that we wouldn't be able to enter the guest house by just walking in. There is a door entry system and after pressing the reception button, we were given access. After going inside we waited in the hallway expecting someone to come to meet and greet us. After about 5 minutes, no one came,... More

The stay was perfectly fine until after check out. The hotel does not have a reception so on arrival our 3 rooms booked were left open with the key inside and we were furnished with a key code on booking to get us in the main door. We were booked for 2 nights and all the party are NON smokers.... More

Just had 2 nights here and very impressed with all aspects of this 4 star accommodation from the ease of entry cleanliness location and service. Ideal for guests who just want to please themselves when it comes to breakfast and coming back late at night,will definitely return but may check out a superior room next time!

My boyfriend and I booked this hotel for a very reasonable £58 for a midweek one night stay, and thought that considering they normally charge considerably more than that, and that it's a 4* hotel, it would be a really nice place. We got there and immediately had trouble with their automated system - we had to be let in... More
