Having stayed here before we booked with confidence, the room once again was clean & comfortable, until early hours when the temperature dropped, we put the heater on only for it to blow out cold air.

The hotel is in a great location, had no problem parking, swift check in and in room quickly. The bedroom decor was not my taste, very tangerine but could not fault how clean the room was and the bed which I had a great sleep in. As an old hotel I did have a heavy footed neighbour above but lucky...

We probably didn't have the best room in the place- Room 21 with views over assorted buildings at the back of the hotel- but it was warm and clean. Breakfast was buffet style and pretty average. Why can't mid range hotels do better sausages? My main gripe was the total lack of interest shown to us as guests. Reception staff...

Thank you for your review. I was most disturbed to read your comments in regards to the noise from the staff on the bedroom corridors. Please be assured I have investigated the issue with my management team to alleviate such problems in the future. I offer my sincere apologies for the annoyance and frustration this caused.

This hotel is in a good location, it has parking at the back (free) the rooms are small but clean and tidy, the hotel has a restaurant which is quite pricey but you have the option of eating in the bar which is cheaper, or you have the option of an Indian or thai restaurant over the street from the...

We were fortunate to stay at the George this weekend. The hotel is set in the heart of Lichfield and handy for everything including the stunning Cathedral. We stayed in a larger than average room with a four poster bed and large well equipped bathroom. The power shower was the best we have experienced in a hotel. We were also...
