Well worth a night or two if visiting Stamford or passing through. The George has plenty of history and is rather a nice place to stay. The rooms are well appointed with luxurious comfortable beds. Choice of freshly cooked breakfast and a fine courtyard to enjoy a coffee or afternoon tea. The staff are polite and efficient. Would recommend.

Afternoon tea as a birthday treat for my wife, we arrived a little early for tea but we're offered a drink while we waited. The full cream tea is something to behold! Plenty of tea and extra hot water is supplied, the sandwiches, scones and cakes are delicious. The service was friendly and fast, the staff are very attentive too.... More

Stopped off Sunday morning whilst travelling North. Actually wanted breakfast but they finished service at 10 am (we arrived at 10.05) disappointing but decided to have coffee. The coffee was awfull. Thin, bitter and with the smallest amount of frothed up milk. It was dreadful. Had a Danish pastry which was OK but did not make up for the coffee.... More

Thank you for bringing this matter to my attention, I have discussed your comments with the appropriate heads of department to avoid this situation arising in the future. We receive so many wonderful compliments about the hotel, that it is very sad to learn on this occasion we failed to meet your expectations. More

We stopped for lunch. Have been many times before. It was a lovely day so we ate in the courtyard. Service is excellent. A tad dissapointed with my salad. Very little choice of greens etc. husband had open beef sandwich which he said was very good.

The George of Stamford is a delightfully charming hotel situated in an idyllic town setting. The décor and ambiance is a tasteful reflection of the period building and location. The staff in general are very personable, obliging and nothing seemed to be an issue; a turn of phrase I heard quite often throughout my stay was, 'I insist'. Where this... More

Beautiful hotel. Excellent staff but needs to remember what year it is! Boiling hot all night. No air conditioning. Zero vegetarian options for breakfast on a £200 per night room. Also not disability friendly I noticed on behalf of other residents.

Thank you for taking time to post your review I was pleased to read that you appreciated the beautiful surroundings here at The George and the attentive staff. Many of the rooms do have air conditioning and for the few that do not we offer Dyson fans. I feel our vegetarian options for breakfast are plentiful. Both restaurants are accessible,... More

What a wonderful hotel. Steeped in history it oozes charm throughout. The food in the main restaurant was exceptionally good and I'm told the food in the garden restaurant was equally good. Lovely rooms, good service and friendly efficient staff. Not cheap but well worth the money.

The hotel is beautiful, quirky and interesting. The staff could not be more helpful and the breakfast is fantastic. I would expect though a hotel of this standard to have duvets not blankets. As I can't 't stand sleeping under something that can't have been cleaned since the previous customers, I was left with only a sheet. I did wonder... More

Many thanks for your review I am pleased that you enjoyed the unique ambience of your stay at The George. Our beds are made up with Egyptian cotton sheets and wool blankets (which are regularly dry-cleaned) and each room has an individual bed throw - comments are rare. More

Had lunch at The George on our way home, the wine list was so fantastic that we ended up having to stay the night! Wonderful service from the moment we arrived, lovely food (Dover Sole and Lobster Spaghetti) and lovely staff. Fab 4 poster bedroom with a modern and well appointed bathroom. Room service in the evening with simple but... More

We spent a night here this week as a birthday treat and what a treat the George is. Our room was wonderful, beautifully decorated with a view over the courtyard. The bathroom was very modern and huge!! with lovely fluffy towels, bathrobes and the usual soaps etc. The welcome was very friendly, and after a stroll around the town, and... More
