    Soundproofing was excellent. All round excellent service.

    No magnifying make up/shaving/lighting mirror. Don't know how I looked when in daylight. A/c would not go below 16 degrees with no opening windows. Very hot but bearable.

  • Single

    Location was convenient for my purposes. Parking was on site too.

    It's a bit of a maze - a map/plan would be handy. I couldn't figure out how to cool down my room: it was too hot. Didn't try very hard and opened a window instead...but some instructions would be helpful. The fruit salad was already fermenting when I tried it for breakfast...!

    Some of the staff - most notably those on reception - were exceptionally helpful and welcoming. It is centrally located in the pretty (and tiny!) city of Lichfield. The room was pretty nice and was certainly comfortable.

    Bar staff a bit unfriendly. Couldn't open the windows in our room 'for safety reasons'. Slightly overpriced.

    Location in the cntre of historic city Attractive and spacious room

    1/ The beds are too soft 2/ The restaurant. The evening meal was extremely disappointing: no choice of menu, just a carvery - which seemed to have been "on the go" since lunch-time! The first course was a selection of unappetising and very tired looking slad bowls, the contents of which seemed to consist of lettuce, lettuce and more lettuce: no flavour in any of them, and some others with a meat(?) content looking worryingly anonymous. When it came to the main course, the chef (apparently) refused to come out of the kitchen and carve and so another non-restaurant, member of staff officiated. The most worrying aspect of the meal, however, was the service. We were attended by a young waitress who was a nice enough girl, but who seemed to have received absolutely NO TRAINING. Her manner was unsmiling and brusque: passive/aggressive in fact. She showed no sign of having been taught the rudiments of how to be welcoming and pleasant to her customers. For this deficiency I blame the Management and NOT the young lady in question. Breakfast, while being hardly adequate with regard to choice of menu, was served by friendly, professional and mature waitresses.

    Thoughtful extras like drinks/chocolate fridge in room and availability od breakfast in bed. Helpful staff.

    Two members of house staff talking loudly outside my room in morning...Not a big issue.

    Location, on site car park, good breakfast and friendly staff

    Mechanical ventilation to the kitchens was a little noisy but importantly it did stop at 10ish and didn't come on again until 6ish so the hotel were doing what they could for guests.

  • 8.8

    1. The Staff were great, especially 'Polly' 2. Excellent location- we went to the Bloodstock festival and the hotel was ideal location 3. Room was large, comfortable and very clean!

    We arrived at the hotel a few hours before we could check in, this was because we had traveled to lichfield by train for almost 4 hours from York as we were going to a festival nearby. we asked the staff if we could use facilities to change, clean ourselves up abit and leave our belongings in a secure place. we weren't allowed. Further to this, we arrived after the festival (around 1 AM in the morning) and our room was given to another couple by the night porter, so we had to wait another hour before we could get any rest.

  • 8.2

    The room itself was spacious, and the bed and sofas were comfortable. Also, the chocolates were mightily tasty!

    The floorboards were VERY creaky, which made it impossible to walk across the floor quietly. Also, one of the bedside lights didn't seem to be working. Finally, finding the room itself wasn't easy, as the hotel was a bit of a maze and the corridors weren't well-signed.

  • 8.8

    Appears to have been recently refurbished to a high standard. My room was very comfortable and spacious. A good overall ambience. I didn't dine in the hotel but the breakfast was enjoyable with very attentive staff. A nice place if you like a comfortable old style hotel.

    For some unusual reason it was hotel/company policy to deduct an additional £20 with the cost of the room on arrival, to apparently cover extras. At checkout I was told the £20 would be returned to my card. I hope there are no glitches! This would seem to be an untrusting policy, especially when one's credit card would routinely 'franked' on arrival. Somewhat Off-putting, I would say.

  • 9.6

    The staff were very helpful and friendly. We only had one evening meal as we were visiting family, but the bar meal was very good. I am vegetarian and am very used to poor options or none. But the meal I had was excellent!

    Can't actually think of anything!

  • 10.0

    Very well located for exploring Lichfield town center. Ideal location for cathedral access, our prime reason for staying. Well updated, quality furnishings. Our room was huge, with canopied 4-poster bed, ancient beam, couch & chairs nook, spacious desk. A/C excellent. TV on swivel viewable from all settings. Unusually nice, quiet room. Many choices of excellent restaurants at hand.

  • 5.8

    Great location. Close to restaurants, pubs and shops. Most shops do close at 5:00pm though.

    Bathroom in room 16 was unusable. Shower was far too small for an adult to enter. Shower head rested on the top of my head. Couldn't get out of the tight shower doors after one use. soap dish was torn out of the tile wall, probably due to being hit by an elbow while trying to turn around in tight shower.

  • 8.2

    We were lucky as room was very spacious. Other friends complained their room was cramped. Bed very comfortable. Bar was good and staff helpful. a little noise from bar opposite at night but not enough to worry about. Didn't eat there as was in the area for a party.

    All good.

  • 8.2

    The beautiful city of Lichfield, the lovely George Hotel, the great location,the marvellous pantomime and a visit to the Cathedral for a toy service for the Gingerbread Association.

    The weather, but you are not responsible for that!!! My friend and I booked a meal in Darwin's Restaurant and were disappointed with the portions offered, we both have large appetites! We do realise that this is nouville cuisine but portions could be larger. We did love the decor and the ambience of the restaurant however.

  • 9.2

    The George Hotel is centrally located and within easy walking distance of shops and places of interest e.g. the Cathedral and riverside walks. There was an abundance of places to eat immedaitely outside the hotel covering all tastes and pallets. To be fair, the hotel food was very good albeit I did eat out as it was far cheaper to do so! The hotel has on-site parking which is provided free of charge and the social areas e.g. bar, restaurant, lounge etc were comfortable and presented in good order. Free Internet access was available on a PC in a common user area which was useful for checking social media sites whilst away from home for those of us who still don't use Smart phones or Apps! I'd stay at The George Hotel again: no question.

    My room was small, cramped and tired and the bed lacked a headboard! Conversely, however, the on-suite was a good size and nicely presented.
