3rd year running we have booked a weekend at a Best Western using Tesco vouchers. Each time wanted a centrally located hotel, with plenty of restaurants & pubs in the area. This was the best of our 3 Best Western experiences so far, with the George exceeding our expectations. Positioned right in the middle of the lovely town of Lichfield, there are literally cafes, restaurants & pubs a few strides from the hotel entrance and very close proximity to the shops & cathedral.
Paid extra for superior room and was allocated number 25, at the back of the hotel and on the end of the corridor, so no noise issues. Can never understand why people say about a hotel being ‘old’ and ‘tired’ – that is half the attraction and tradition about them. This place is full of history. The room was very warm (it was a cold weekend) and with loads of space. Additional TV in the lounge area between the bedroom and the bathroom – as with everywhere in the hotel, all areas absolutely spotless. Didn’t eat in the hotel but used the bar lounge for a coffee and a drink. Both times the service was spot-on and it was a very comfortable place to relax. On the Friday evening there were several ‘locals’ coming in for dinner and judging by what we saw you couldn’t blame them. Breakfast was again a good experience, very polite & friendly staff, with an ample self-service selection of hot & cold foods.
Would highly recommend this to people who enjoy staying in a hotel with character and history, as opposed to some of the modern & soulless places. Every single George employee was professional and most of all…friendly and service orientated. We will definitely return.
