My husband and I stayed at The George November 2013 and our stay is still on our minds. What a marvelous start of our trip. We were heading for the start of our cruise from Portsmouth and the location couldn't have been more ideal for us without a vehicle. We were able to walk to a shopping center to pick... More

If you are looking for a swanky boutique hotel then this is not for you; However if you are looking for a spotless warm comfortable friendly welcoming hotel extremly close to places of historical interest and city centre then you will find it when you walk into the George. We spent two nights here in March to see the Mary... More

Chose the George because it is so close to the Mary Rose exhibition (absolutely brilliant). Couldn't have made a better choice. Friendly and helpfull staff, comfortable and clean rooms, meals -breakfast and dinner - all very good. Would I stay here again? Without any hesitation.

I originally chose this hotel for its proximity to the naval museums and train station. I was not disappointed. The room was very clean, the staff friendly and helpful, plus the breakfast was excellent. They even offered to hold my bag until my evening departure on the ferry. It was a very enjoyable stay.

The George is one of our local pubs, nothing flash but full of character with good pub food and a regular venue for us through the week and for Sunday lunch. The staff are efficient, warm and friendly especially Jake and the owners, Paul and Nicki, are great hosts and often around to have a chat with. We recently went... More

Breakfast was excellent with more than enough o eat. Felt very uncomfortable one evening in the bar on our return from a night out. We purchased a drink, but left for our room very shortly afterwards, because of the colourful language coming from a small group (I think regulars). This is not the sort of atmosphere anyone should encounter at... More

I just came by for a lunch stop AND to ask if they could hold my bulky luggage until four o'clock as I have booked a visit at the nearby Historical Dockyard and I would not be allowed in ( the Museum does not have a luggage deposit, no comment...) Believe it or not this is THE ONLY place out... More

Good points: Very good customer service, clean rooms, bed quality is good, although there is a bar in the ground floor I did not have any problems with noise (I was in room 4 first day and then room 1 second day). There is a separate door access for people who don't like to enter the rooms through the bar,... More

I stayed at the George having read all the reviews posted, and decided to ignore the last one given that the rest of them showed mostly favourable comments. I'm glad I did as I thought it a good choice, and so did the friend I travelled with. It was so near to the historic dockyard, the harbour, and Gunwharf Quays... More

Before booking this location, my friend checked both bookings.com and trip advisor for ratings and both gave it pretty high scores so we were quite comfortable with our choice. After having been there, I am think many of the ratings came from friends of the pub as the place was very substandard and very much not worth the price we... More
