As mentioned by previous reviews, the staff are very efficient and helpful unfortunately business is not brisk in our cold Februarys so it was very quiet. The bar acts as restaurant during quiet times which is nowhere near as comfortable as eating in the pretty and comfortable dining room where breakfast is served. Our superior room was large with an... More

We arrived at the hotel an hour before we were expected, I expected to have to wait for our room to be made ready, but the receptionist (sorry I forget her name) very kindly found us another room as we were attending a wedding and needed to get changed. Nothing seemed too much trouble. The room was spacious (it was... More

The warmth of welcome on this cold, January afternoon blew away any fleeting impression of 'tiredness' in this hotel, and my room was large, lovely and warm, and wonderfully quiet. The good-sized bathroom, with both shower and bath, was very clean and the big bed extremely comfortable. The staff couldn't have been more kind and helpful. Delightful Eva sweetly rang... More

We booked to stayed at the Litchfield Cathedral Hotel in December through a website at a discounted rate of £45 to see my sister who was having a baby. Unfortunately my sister had complications and we were unable to visit on the date of the offer. My husband called the hotel who said that they were prepared to move our... More

This is an unfortunate situation where a customer has already formed an opinion of the hotel without even arriving. Hotels set low rates as non refundable for the reason it promotes the quieter nights while still allowing the customer to take advantage of being able to stay at the hotel for considerably less money than the normal rack rates. If... More

This is a curate’s egg of a hotel which my wife and I have stayed at twice, most recently in July for the Lichfield Festival. Simplest to summarise its pros and cons. On the plus side is its location, within 5-6 minutes’ walk of the Cathedral and about the same again for the city centre. It also has a free... More

Needed a last minute one night stay. Spotted this hotel whilst driving past. Staff were warm, friendly and welcoming. Double room 211 was a good size, clean and bed was comfy. Breakfast was varied, cooked food was hot and tasty. Rooms could do with updating, just a bit tired and worn round the edges. However would definitely stay there again.

Stayed in a double room for one night on a stop over whilst travelling north. Found the receptionist friendly and informative but the room was a terrible let down. Bed lumpy with sheets that didnt fit properly. When we tried to adjust the sheets we found the duvet old and bobbly looking. Noisey room (304) as close to the street.... More
