Just one night here, and it did what it said on the tin. Sleep quality was ok, but the room I had was at the front of the hotel and there was traffic all night. The room was cool enough to sleep with the window shut - thank goodness. No air con here. The hotel is dated. It is a... More

Stayed here last minute after not finding anywhere to stay in Winchester. Pleasant front of house receptionist. Breakfast was okay. And despite being in the middle of the center (conveniently) it was quiet. Would stay here again.

I arrived on Sunday night around 21:30 and was checked in without issue. When I got to my room it was clear that the floor was not level in the slightest, to the point my feet were almost above my head when lying on the bed which is not very comfortable. Even the furniture was leaning back against the walls... More

Stayed here for 2 nights to attend Royal Ascot. Was pleased with the room thought it was a great price. Its centrally located so very noisy you will need ear plugs. The rooms were clean and well equipped however they were very warm even though the heating wasn't on so not the best when trying to get dressed. Over all... More

Unfortunately,there doesn't seem to be a "good" category which is what i would have selected,just average or very good. I stayed here for one night for a work trip.Very handy location- right in the centre of town and a short walk from the train station. Quick and easy check in and was given a free upgrade to an executive room... More

Wasn't a great experience. Food was poor and they turn it into a curry takeaway at night. The actual hotel was a maze and apparently haunted (dead mice I should imagine) We ended up eating in a local restaurant called cosmos.

George hotel has is very welcoming with polite and friendly staff who are more than willing to assist where they can. One of the problems I found instantly was that there was no lifts, Dragging a suitcase up the stairs is quite difficult! The rooms are accommodating however very basic! Interior decor was worn and shabby, and was in desperate... More

Not impressed with my stay. The rooms were far too hot and there was no air conditioning and you couldn't even open the window, it was horrible. Some odd smells and a strange atmosphere, hardly luxurious or inviting. To quote a friend, 'a slight aroma of curry and fags'. Perfectly adequate but certainly not something to talk about. Not recommended.

I stayed on my own recently in a single room. I had a pleasant stay. Room was clean,bed comfy, decent bathroom. I didn't eat there so can't comment on that. Very helpful ( eastern European?) receptionist who kindly helped me work the telly! I'd stay at this hotel again. Not luxurious but clean comfortable & functional.
