Room smelt of fags, shower didnt work, bed sheets covered in stains, very thin walls so I was woke up by a couple that checked in at 2am and they kept me awake until I had to leave for work at 7. Would not stay again.

Should have been held in the ballroom but was held in the dining room as there was not enough people to make this viable. Not the hotels fault. The dance floor was a bit small. Disco was fine when he got warmed up. The buffet was excellent could not fault it. We stayed the night. Room was a bit dated... More

We decided on The George for Christmas as we had read the positive reviews for the Sunday Carvery. It will a choice we will not make again. We were placed at a able in the undecorated Ball Room. This was cold and only had 40 or so diners. There was no atmosphere, and the Christmas music was only started near... More

It took 15 minutes for the lights to be restored the disco was in fact never restarted. At no time did any of the staff or events manager take the time to tell us what was... More

The George Hotel in its hey day would have been a grand hotel to stay in and you can imagine with the Royal Daulton factory around the corner that all manor of people would have wanted to stay there. Fast forward to 2015 and the old girl is in a sorry state and in need of a major investment from... More

Well after reading some of the recent reviews we were expecting a rather dire stay but when we walked into our room it was spotlessly clean and lovely and warm. Fittings were rather tired and worn looking as others have mentioned but we had everything we needed. Our room was £55 and we were happy that the cost suitably reflected... More

Could be lovely but needs a massive cash injection. Evening meal was ok. Breakfast was pretty poor, cold food, no milk, coffee of juice. Room was ok but needs updating. This hotel has hardly any staff, the ones they do have sadly struggle to cope. Parking is poor.

“Worse room ever!” I stayed here with two other colleagues on a business trip which was booked via AMEX. I think most AMEX clients would be appalled at the quality of accommodation an d not what they would be used to. Fortunately it was just one night. Carpet leading up to the rooms were threadbare. My room had a hole... More

We have not stayed at the George, we live locally; however we have been there on Sunday lunchtime for the carvery which I do recommend. However we did book in on Remembrance Day, it was also my grandson's birthday. We were told it was busy but they could fit us in. On the day we were taken downstairs to what... More
