Best Western Lichfield City Centre The George Hotel.

The Best Western The George Hotel in Lichfield is just a 5 minute stroll from many of the city's best attractions. These include the famous 12th century Lichfield Cathedral, the Garrick Theatre, Beacon Park and many more architecturally spectacular historic houses. In fact, Lichfield is well known for being a city filled with historic relevance, predominantly because it is the birthplace of Samuel Johnson, writer of the first English Language Dictionary (you can even visit the museum dedicated to him). Stowe Pool is also less than 10 minutes walk away from the hotel, and is an idyllic spot for a peaceful stroll or some afternoon fishing.

In addition to being a convenient hotel near to Lichfield city centre, this charming 18th Century coaching Inn has bags of character inside. So, when you've unpacked your own bags, sit back, relax and enjoy the homely atmosphere. If you're here on business (or simply taking a break from it) our cosy lounge bar, open fires and stylish evening restaurant will make you feel at ease, with all the fine food and drinks you could wish for. Free parking and free Wi-Fi are also available to all guests.

The Best Western is well located for the Midlands motorway network so you will find yourself within easy reach of major cities such as Birmingham, where you can enjoy a more vibrant pace of life, if only for the day. Wherever you end up, you can be sure a warm welcome awaits back at the hotel.
