“Superb traditional hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

Super location in the centre of Lichfield, close to al the best restaurants. Good breakfast. Friendly, efficient staff. It can be a bit noisy if there is a function on at the hotel and you can hear the street noise at times... but this is normal for a town centre hotel. Good car-parking facilities.

Stayed September 2013, traveled on business

Great location near to the Cathedral in Lichfield, well worth a visit. The room was very clean and spacious. There was some noise during the night due to a night club being next to the Hotel which if you have trouble sleeping will be a problem. Staff were helpful and pleasant.

Room Tip: 73 spacious

Clean, cosy and central. All the things we needed for this stay.
The staff were welcoming, professional and efficient.
The room was clean, warm and met all our needs.
Breakfast was plentiful, well presented and well cooked.

Room Tip: Choose a twin room rather than double - usually more room.

Very pleasant stay in well-maintained hotel. Excellent position for all amenities. Standard room was small, but clean and comfortable. Bathroom was bright and modern. Staff very helpful and accommodating. Very good value for the price paid. Would certainly stop again.

I booked this hotel for my parents anniversary while visiting the cathedral for a concert and they could not fault this hotel.

Although the hotel was busy they received a complimentary upgrade to a 4-poster bed suite with wine, chocolates and a rose which was a very welcomed surprise.

Dinner, bed and breakfast came at a reasonable price and the menu or carvery was in abundance and enjoyable, as was the breakfast in the morning.

The hotel has a good atmosphere and was warm and cosy - just what was needed for the change in weather

Thanks George Hotel

Every year around 15,000 to 20,000 people descend upon the Midlands to attend Ride to the Wall (RTTW) at the National Memorial Arboretum (NMA). For the last 5 years, I have attended and stayed at the Best Western George Hotel in Lichfield.

The hotel is well established and well appointed in the centre of the town. It has several bars and restaurants, of various types, within 2 minutes walk. All members of staff are very friendly and helpful, and contribute positively to the whole experience.

The rooms are clean and comfortable and, as you would expect, are serviced daily. On the downside, because it is a fairly old building, it is a bit like a rabbit warren to negotiate.

I can, however, thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for accommodation in Lichfield. The fact that I have stayed there so often, and have booked again for next year, is testament to that.
