Good location for getting into Lichfield. Our room was big, lovely big comfortable bed with the usual extras- very big TV too. My only criticism was the sound of the water pump when we and other residents used the taps. Really loud- however, our shower head lit up when in use, so all was forgiven

a great place from which to explore the delightful town of Lichfield. It's close to the fantastic medieval Cathedral, & a short pleasant walk down its road leads straight into Bird Street which is the main restaurant strip & leads directly into the picturesque old centre. The hotel's decor & styling are unremarkable, & it has. No lift, but the... More

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

Lodgecathedral, Manager at Cathedral Lodge Hotel, responded to this review

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
