Stayed for one night. Outside looks nice, however it is very dated and tired inside with the corridors smelling musty. The room wasn't much better, cramped with the carpets and decor needing some tlc. The toilet didn't flush and the shower was no more than a trip. Wouldn't reccomnend it.

Room walls poorly painted, shower was just a dribble of water and hot only, coffee and tea stains on walls and bed, carpet near window extremely dirty. Restuarant breakfast was OK - buffet choice not good. Overall poor.

Stayed for weekend break. Good location short walk (12mins)to city centre, quiet, off the main road. Room was in cottages with all the normal fittings but just a little tired. Food was excellent especially the specials on the blackboard - dressed crab;duck breast and others. Can recommend this for a good value weekend break.

Staying away with work Monday to Friday and frequently using the best western group I expected this hotel to give far more than it did. Upon check in I was given my room key (23) and make my way round the dirty and smelly corridors to my room. The smell outside was nearly as bad as the inside of the... More

We booked a room on the phone after looking at the website, as the rooms looked nice. Well we turned up and that wasn't the case. We checked in at reception and were told where our room was so off we went. When we opened the room the was a strange smell so opened the window straight away and on... More

This hotel is pleasent and functional, it does what it says on the tin. The rooms are adequate, i stayed in the annex which went on forever as they often do. The shower yet again disappoints, though maybe a fact that i was so far from the main building may have contributed. I stayed in room 127, not that that... More

I stayed at this hotel 1 year ago and there appears to be little that has changed, so the food was still good although menu is not as extensive as many other hotels, breakfast was also good being freshly cooked. But the decor of the building still looks tired with very worn carpets on the stairs and the room looking... More

I am very pleased that my friend recommended The George Hotel to me for my birthday meal. The staff were well presented, friendly, and helpful - we all felt like we were their number one priority. The bar had an interesting selection of drinks, and it was refreshing to try a few new varieties. We were seated immediately and with... More
