Was very disappointed with the hotel. The room was ok. We was on the 2nd floor and the noise from the pub was terrible as we was right underneath. We was there with my family and 5month old baby. The pub closed at 2am on the Monday morning then you heard them leaving. The room was very cold I asked... More

Very sorry state of affair. Very little choice from day 1. All 3 mornings I had to ask for the table to be cleaned before I sat down. On the 1st 2 mornings there were few guests, so no excuse, the 3rd & final morning was busy & the very young staff member seemed inexperienced. Choice of 2 sliced breads,... More

Just had our 2nd stay at the George..... last year we were on the first floor and struggled a bit with late night bar noise, but this time we were on the top floor. No noise at all heard this year so slept well. Both years we had no complaints at all with facilities.... always found it to be clean,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights with a complimentary continental breakfast included with our price.What a con that was! Firstly a continental breakfast should include croissants.All we had were loaves of bread on the table and a toaster,fruit dishes that were empty and not re-filled and also 3 jugs of fruit juice which were also empty and cereals.Coffee was available...

I have recently returned from a 2 night stay in one of the 3 bed attic rooms at the George Hotel. Check in was quick and painless, the trek to our room was not. Although I suffer from arthritis, I consider myself fit and healthy at 60, indeed within the last year have climbed several mountains in our beautiful Lake... More

When we arrived at the hotel I had to wait 10 minutes for the lad behind the desk to finish whatever he was doing. Then given a key and told room number. The room was ok, fine for the stay. The only problem I felt was that this place is very much focused on the pub side of the place.... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed here on a Sunday as we were at a christening in whitby. We are a relatively young couple and enjoy a drink and a laugh. The bar is buzzing and had karaoke so the girlfriend was happy even thou her voice sounds like a suffocating cat!, the barmaids are a bit rough (which is what... More

The George is most definately more a pub than a hotel, we booked this last minute for one night only and too be honest this was all we would stay. On arrival we entered through the pub entrance rather than the hotel entrance which is in the rear, the entrances are not very well sign posted, the pub was bustling... More

Some of these reviews are really unfair to The George. I have just stayed here, in one of the four non en suite rooms which is the top floor. Not ideal amount of stairs for a 3 1/2 & 1 1/2 yr old but I am the one that chose the shared bathroom! And actually we did not hear a... More

From the outside the pub doesn't look much, but once inside it is a great oldy worldy pub with cheap beer if you go during a week day and very well kept. The rooms are great and roomy and tucked away from the main bar hidden behind a key card. Would definitely recommend and close to the main town in... More
