As with another reviewer we rebooked direct with the hotel and got a better room and breakfast included. Very conveniently situated a few minutes walk from the centre of Lichfield. Car parking available on site. Friendly staff but no lift and it is better top get a room at the rear of the hotel as the front faces a road... More

Having originally booked through a website which got us a room without breakfast, I contacted the hotel who told me to cancel it and re book direct. They gave me an executive room AND breakfast AND at a lower price! The executive room afforded a nice settee in the bay window. There was a decent size kettle but small cups... More

The staff here just couldn't do enough for you. The hotel is well positioned for the centre of Lichfield which is a delightful little town. Having said that the food wasn't of the best quality with a tendancy towards cremation and the hotel itself looked ready for a refurbish. Probably reasonable value for money though.

This is a super hotel with welcoming staff and I must mention Claire who coped very well when I played dumb after her excellent directions to our room. Our room was clean, well stocked with coffee & tea and breakfast in the morning had a good... More

Value for money 3 star hotel. We found the staff extremely helpful and friendly. We stayed for 2 nights B & B at the end of June during a mini heat wave. Our room was on the second floor, it had a mini fridge, microwave and a fan. The bathroom was en suite with a shower over a bath. We... More

We held our wedding reception here in June 2015. A big thank you to Louise and all of the other Cathedral Lodge staff that helped make our day. The staff were always kind & helpful with organising our event with ongoing help in the year long run up to the wedding. The Receptionist bent over backwards to help us find... More

We returned to Cathedral Lodge Hotel for our Wedding Anniversary Meal. We married in June 2013 and the hotel and staff were fantastic. On returning for our 2nd Anniversary meal the service by Eva is a credit to the hotel. The food is beautiful and a very good portion. Thanks again Cathedral Lodge Hotel.
