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!

We have just returned after staying 3 nights to attend a Wedding in the village. On arrival we were upgraded to a better room than we had booked on late rooms at no extra charge. Room was immaculate, beautiful furniture and decor.Excellent choice of food at breakfast and of a high standard. Evening meal was again excellent and value for... More

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

I'm so impressed with the George - considering it was burnt to the ground in 2008, and rebuilt over the following two years, it still has the appearance of an authentically old building, with its thick stone walls and beams riddled with woodworm! That's true of the bar and restaurant area anyway. But when you enter one of the bedrooms,... More

From the moment we arrived it became obvious we were going to enjoy our stay. The bar and restaurant had just the right feel about it that made you feel comfortable. This hotel has been refitted following being destroyed by fire a few years ago, and what a lovely job they have done. All the staff were extremely friendly and... More

This was our second time staying at The George and we were not disappointed. The hotel is very ably run by a team of staff who are friendly and helpful. The rooms are smart, clean and warm with a very comfortable bed. There is ample parking behind the pub. The restaurant serves well priced, beautifully cooked food and the choice... More

Stayed for a few nights to have a quick post-winter break. Hotel great - comfortable warm spacious room with tasteful restful decor, nice bathroom, also quiet though bar downstairs busy. Prices reasonable. Staff all friendly and helpful, very welcoming. Sun shone. Food good for a pub but great at Red Room Restaurant just up the road. Would come to the... More
