What a gorgeous Inn, very old and very historic. Built by the 14th century to accommodate travellers coming for the wool fairs, it has had a licence to sell alcohol since 1397. Used as the headquarters of Monmouth's army (illegitimate son of Charles II) in 1685 and he was apparently shot at whilst shaving here. We stayed in the Carthusian... More

Delightfully quirky, yet superbly comfortable. The staff couldn't have been more obliging. The room was amazing. Hardly a straight floorboard in the place, and not a right angle in any room. Perfect. The breakfast was something memorable in being so different, with the emphasis on perfection.

I stayed at this hotel for one night and the service was exceptional. We were a bit early for our room so had a drink in the bar. When the room was available, the staff took our luggage to our room, I haven't had that service for a long time. The room was massive and had a beautiful view of... More

There are not many opportunities to stay in an old coaching inn with this history! The ground floor was built in 1397 and the upper floors added in the 15th century! As might be expected this means steep and winding stairs but it is oh so worth it. We stayed in the Samuel Pepys room with four poster bed. We... More

An absolutely amazing building and really friendly, lovely staff BUT a recent refurb has taken some of its character away - criminal!!! Some lovely old paintings replaced by pretty awful pictures for example. Also, HOW can it POSSIBLY be right to have tinny, cruddy music coming through speakers in 700 year old rooms? How did this idea even figure in... More

We recently stayed here for two nights and found the George to be a very interesting place to visit, with its historical quirks and somewhat theatrical setting. When we booked, we received an email mentioning there were renovations being undertaken, so it with some trepidation that we arrived, but the building work had no impact on our visit. We stayed...

We stayed for a couple of nights whilst visiting the area and received a really warm, friendly welcome from the minute we stepped into the hotel to the point when it was time to leave. The bar staff are absolutely fantastic. We ate in the hotel on the first night and had a superb meal; the venison was particularly good,... More

A superb weekend away despite the wet weather; a magnificent building, real fires, nice warm rooms, great staff, great service. Food was good including a delicious brie and bacon sandwich, awesome chips and a hearty breakfast. Everyone knows what they're doing and it's great place to go and relax. Bath is about 7 miles away but, happy to stay at... More

My wife and I stayed here just before Xmas as we wanted somewhere within striking distance of Bath. It is a quaint old building, but if you have any mobility problems, you should ensure you mention this when you book so they can find you a suitable room, as ours was upstairs and the spiral staircase is not for the...
