Great place to stay. Characterful, nothing too much trouble, great bar, lovely rooms, fair price.

I always enjoy it at The George. Nice rooms (very quirky and characterful!), good bar, I can’t comment on the restaurant as I don’t eat evening meals there. Breakfast always outstanding but I deliberately missed it today as I’m trying to shed some pounds and a George buffet breakfast is just too good to resist if I see it.
The rooms are old fashioned, but in a good way - full of character but very well appointed, with clean and superbly comfortable beds, superb bathrooms with a proper bath you can stretch out in, as well as a modern shower. Just the right mix of great heritage and modern comfort. You can almost imagine yourself as a guest in Downton Abbey!
The location is fantastic, right in the high street with so many different eating places around.
After stopping here last night I used it for a corporate celebration lunch for 40 people. The food, the service and the room were very good for the reasonable price.
I use Best Western hotels all over the world, From Toronto to Cape Town and Delhi to Lichfield! Always my first choice - because BW is a co-operative of privately owned hotels, they have different characters, not just the same uniform corporate identity. The standards are always good and prices fair. Plus I feel good about giving my business to the small business owner, instead of putting more money in the pockets of “the man”.
Location is convenient for driving and also for the train.
I come here four times a year for overnight and small corporate meetings, and I can't think of a place I like more for the purpose, on balance.
