I stayed here for 2 nights in July (room number 2, back of the hotel). Overall, not bad - could be better. I paid much less for the first night and on that basis would have called it a bargain! Positives? Staff were friendly and helpful (especially in the bar and restaurant), food was good and not too pricey, and... More

We always come here now for a drink when in Keswick. The George is centrally located and has a great selection of real ales which are well kept; primarily Jennings ales - Sneck Lifter is a favourite and always on the menu. Other good selection of lagers and ciders are available. The staff are friendly and service is prompt. There... More

Just back from a short break to Keswick. Called into the George Hotel after a days walking. Decided to have the half portion of cow pie (pleased I didn't plump for the full portion as couldn't finish the half portion I was so full). Just in case you are wondering cow pie is a pie crammed full of tender steak.... More

We were a group of 4 couples on a 3 day walking reunion and 3 couples had very nice spacious rooms with bathrooms, all very nice but unfortunately we where given Room 5 at the back of the hotel which was smaller and extremely uncomfortably hot because it was over...

We are also disappointed ! That Margo L did not enjoy her experience at The George. We our proud of the fact we have many guests who return time after time and recommend us to friends and family. We set ourselves very high standards in the delivery of customer service and clearly have not delivered them on this occasion. I... More

Have stayed here years ago ( before I used trip advisor) and called in for lunch the other day . Not disappointed . Hearty food from a varied menu . Delicious. But the best bit was there was a lovely dog free room ( only knew as someone with a dog tried to access it) maybe promote this a bit... More

Been to The George Hotel many times as a visitor to the excellent bar, and frequenting the restaurant from time to time, but never had I stopped, until now. Three nights bed and breakfast. Lovely large, clean and tastefully decorated double room with spacious bathroom. Very comfy bed. A nice touch was the shampoo / shower gel dispenser in the... More

Didn't stay in the hotel but went there for food every day. My goodness, was it good! I must say that the staff were very good at their jobs, were very proactive and it actually felt like they enjoyed working there. They were very friendly at the same time and looked after me and my two friends extremely well. I... More

We thought we had the deal covering the evening meal when we booked, but found it had finished a month before we arrived. Also, they put two people using walking sticks on the top floor and no lift or help with bags, and I had to go down and fetch toilet rolls. Room was comfortable and generally quiet. Very little...

Didn't stay in the Hotel but ate twice there in the week we were up and on both occasions had a great meal and excellent wine/beer. Warm, cosy feel in low beamed rooms as you enter and feel the heat from the coal fires. Small but efficiently run bar with knowledgable staff guiding you through the selection of beers on... More
