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

excellent Hotel, food and staff 1st class. if you would like to be pampered, this is for you. Going back in time this hotel offers all the extras of a bygone era. Its a must try for any special occasion, or just to relax.

My 4 star might be subjective as the reason it lost a point was the inability to get lots of fresh air. I am sure there are reasons. The room appointment was beyond fault as was the facilities. The hotel is steeped in the most amazing history that comes with the Great North Road, Romans, Crusaders and other medieval history.... More

Went for a family wedding. WOW!!! What a place. You could get lost easily in the maze of staircases. Every area is amazing to view. Staff could not be any more helpful or polite. We did not find anyone on a bad day or unwilling to do anything for us. The room have air conditioning (but not all rooms have... More

We were staying with family in nearby Market Deeping and this is one of their favourite places. We sat outside on a beautiful sunny day. The food looked good but as we only had coffee as we had already had lunch but the service was friendly. Went for a look around inside. What a beautiful building! Pity we don't live... More

Many years ago when young and poor we were stranded in Stamford on a winter evening, during a coach breakdown. The George just happened to be the nearest place to go. Obviously tired and scruffy we were made welcome here in the bar; and promised ourselves we would come back and stay when older and richer. And so we have... More

The George has been a coaching inn seemingly forever, and it has the quirky floor plan and narrow halls that go with age. The rooms have been recently remodeled and are quite modern, but the hall floors sound like they are centuries old and squeal with every step any guest takes. The rooms as the very end of the halls... More

We have now stayed at this hotel on one occasion, when attending a wedding but have been regular visitors for lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and casual drinks. On every occasion, we have been very impressed with the level of service, the friendly and courteous staff and the wonderful atmosphere. If you're looking for a cheap and cheerful hotel then this...

My wife and I and two friends called in for lunch on Saturday 9th August 2014, having previously called 10 years ago! The menu was appealing, the meal was first class, the service excellent and the ambience and environment superb. There was nothing to criticise hence awarding the restaurant five stars.
