“Light lunch and afternoon tea”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

I have popped in occaisionaly for a light lunch with my wife and find the meals good value but the afternoon tea is very good for £10.00.Also a pint of Courage Directors was a fine example of real ale...pretty good for a hotel.

Room Tip: at the rear would be quieter

All of the staff were as helpful as they could be. They were friendly and cheerful and dealt with minor issues our party had with a calm, professional manner. The staff made the whole experience a great pleasure, the like of which, I have not experienced in the UK before. The room was large and well equipped. The hotel has a great location though that does make car parking a little awkward.

My husband decided to have his retirement do here as they offered a really good package. Lovely room, lovely friendly and efficient staff, nice buffet, would definitely hire again. Very laid back, just what we wanted. Many thanks.

Stayed here for just one night to attend a concert during the Lichfield Festival. We liked the hotel; large comfortable room, helpful and friendly staff, nice public areas, clean and well-decorated throughout. We were disappointed in the dinner, very ordinary food - they were just trying too hard with complex dishes. Breakfast good though.

The best thing about this historic old hotel is its location in the heart of this lovely old town. Car parking behind. Will stay again next time we're in town.

For once we decided to take a break on our journey north, to visit relatives, mainly because we had set out late from home. Lichfield was a convenient half-way point and the George offered what seemed to be a good standard of accommodation at a reasonable price, for myself, wife and grown-up daughter, who required her own room.

The George is perfectly located right in the middle of the town, on a the narrow, cobbled Bird Street. From here the town is very easy to visit, without the need to use your car. Indeed, the hotel has its own car park around the back, off of the council car park. From here you can enter the hotel via the back entrance.

We were warmly welcomed and soon on our way to our rooms. This was a bit of a trek; this is clearly a very old hotel and a bit of a rabbit warren, with uneven floors to catch out the less steady! Eventually we arrived at what appeared to be the other end of the premises, but to find very nicely decorated and adequately spacious rooms. Everything was well maintained and comfortable and we all enjoyed a good night's sleep.

Breakfast the following morning was a buffet affair and perfectly acceptable. We set off to complete our journey feeling that this had been a very good choice and one that we would have no hesitation is using again should the circumstances require.

Rooms were nice, location perfect for exploring Lichfield. Car park not the best to find, but we got there in the end. We did not take the breakfast option, we would stay here again, for shopping and general exploration of the area.

Stayed at Hotel for our Wedding Night. We couldn't get an early check in which was disappointing. Room was extremely dated, stain on bathroom mat. Hair in the bath, piece of foam insulation under the pillow, clock was slow in the room causing us to nearly miss breakfast which finished at 10. We called reception at 9.50 on our clock in the room to check on times and was told breakfast had finished and we were too late. Fortunately we managed to get in to get some breakfast. Staff were tidying and moving tables around us and other guests whist we were eating. We did mention to Reception the issues above and didn't even receive an apology. As a Lichfield resident I don't think I would recommend the Hotel. It certainly didn't represent value for money at £116!
