We stayed here for one night on a deal and wow did we get value for money. The staff were friendly without being overbearing and dealt with any queries with a smile. The staff were all well presented with the males having their shirts tucked in. Sadly this is not something we often see at other venues and it looks so much smarter when they are tucked in. We were lucky enough to be given a superior room with a four poster bed. This room had a bath and shower, tea and coffee facilities and a mini bar (extra cost obviously). There were also 2 TV's - one you could watch in bed and another in the seating area which had a two seater settee and a chair (not that we watch much TV, but great for those couples that want to view different things.
The food was very tasty and there was plenty of it. Dinner was 3 course and well presented, with a good selection, I would say to suit most tastes. Breakfast was a buffet with plenty of choice - fruit, yogurts, cereal as well as all the usual cooked items. The food was hot and not at all greasy and coffee was quickly replenished by just asking one of the waiting staff for more.
Lichfield itself is a lovely clean city and a pleasure to walk around.
On checking out, a couple of people were complaining about the noise and car parking - as for the noise what do people expect when you stay in the middle of a city! Please be realistic about this - the hotel cannot be responsible for all the evening revellers in the area. The issue of car parking - again we feel this is not the hotel's fault that inconsiderate visitors to the city park in the hotel allocated spaces instead of paying in the adjacent carpark.
Overall a fabulous place to stay in a character building. Would definitely recommend. less
