While visiting relatives in the area. Our family decided to pop into the George Hotel for a meal and some drinks (as you do). After politely enquiring whether food was still being served. The member of staff serving at the time replied in an abrupt and curt manner. "No food was not being served". So although the Hotel looks warm... More

Such a lovely hotel that managed to do so many things not quite right. From the cheap thin mattress, knocking pipes, vibrating wardrobe and lack of shower in room 6 to the attitude of the kitchen which "isn't set up to do boiled eggs"! The attitude of the manager was that the kitchen was to busy preparing for Sunday lunch... More

Rooms were great, service was excellent, food was disappointing (evening meal and breakfast). The scrambled eggs looked and tasted like they had been made the night before and reheated in the microwave!

This should be a wow hotel. Full of history and character but it lacks something. The bar was empty by 9pm on a Friday and Saturday night. We stayed for 2 nights and went to another bar for drinks and to eat as it had no character in the bar. The building had character but the atmosphere does not. It... More

We traveled to Hatherleigh for a family birthday celebration and were booked into The George sight unseen. It turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. The hotel looks and feels authentically old but the bedrooms are modern, comfortable and clean. The bathroom was huge and a complete contrast to most English hotels. The bed was gigantic and very comfortable.... More

Wonderful old Inn, beautifully renovated. Bedroom was lovely, staff fantastic and a great location to visit the stunning Devon countryside. Food good and hearty. A real English gem that I hugely recommend! Will be back ourselves for sure!

We stayed here again because the staff were so welcoming the last time we were here. Our room, number 5, was beautifully decorated, very clean and tidy, hairdryer, spacious bathroom with a powerful shower, lots of storage space. Rooms very private and quiet. Bar area can get quite lively but couldn't hear anything from our room, we were directly above... More
