I had liver - my wife lobster; the food was excellent - the service was good (although possibly the waitress asked us too often it all was OK!). I have used the George for 50 years - always enjoyable!

The minute you walk onto this property you feel instantly transported ! The fact that it's over a 1000 yrs old and was managed by the treasurer of queen Elizabeth the 1st may have a lot to do with this. The public spaces are beautifully decorated with warm, wooded and deep colours and the memorabilia make you feel that you... More

I booked the George for an Anniversary night away with good food. The hotel has plenty of character and the orchids all over the place beautiful. It was nice that the hotel both in our room with a card and in the restaurant with a firework dessert remembered without any prompt that we were an anniversary couple - nice touch.... More

The George, there is not a lot more that can be said that has not already been written. This visit was our second one, the first being another special occasion, our Ruby Anniversary. Each of these occasions we found the overall setting, gardens, accommodation, food and most importantly the staff absolutely fantastic. I must single out the staff for special... More

A great hotel in many ways - lovely settings, comfy lounges, good car parking, excellent breakfasts. there are only four things that prevent me from giving it 5 stars...the room was very small for the price (the bathroom was nearly the same size as the room), staff were talking loudly and sweeping the yard and fire escape directly outside the...

Our staff at The George was a delight. A comfortable hotel with good rooms and outstanding service. All the staff were exceptionally friendly and cheerful. I got the feeling that they liked working at the hotel. Full marks to the cleaner who stopped her work to help my father with his suitcase! The lounge was comfy to sit in or... More

Fantastic stay, the rooms were a delight. The gardens were absoloutely beautiful. The hotel restaurant was simply fabulous. I left something in my room - but it was safely kept by the housekeeper who very kindly posted it back to me - i cannot fault this lovely place

This is one of the grand old county hotels of England. Built in a monastery garden and run as a hotel since (at least) the time of Queen Elizabeth I, it has everything one could wish for. Glorious old rooms, spacious lounges, a perfect outdoor terrace, extraordinary breakfast room in a huge conservatory with a jungle of plants, orchids everywhere,... More

My boyfriend took me here on a romantic weekend break. The website really does not do this place justice - There is so much heritage in this place, it felt like a privilege to stay there. Apparently this hotel is over a thousand year old! The grounds are gorgeous (lots of little hidden gardens), the food's good and the service... More
