Stayed one night in room 51 which is a tiny single room. The bathroom was really nice. We had a nice dinner at the Garden Room Restaurant. The food was very tasty but I wish they would install a proper ventilation system because my clothes stank like a restaurant kitchen after having spent two hours at this restaurant. The hotel...

We very much enjoyed our recent visit to the George. Walking in through the well-tended gardens, packed with spring flowers we felt welcomed even before we entered the building. The hotel is relaxed and well presented.There were the most beautiful orchids in every room . Staff were mostly polite and helpful.The service at mealtimes excellent. We had a delicious meal... More

We were recommended The George as a convenient pit stop in Stamford en route south on the A1(M) and we were not to be dissappointed. It was described as an "institution" of Stamford and not to be missed - very true! We opted for bar snacks rather than the restaurant. Delicious sandwiches - but at £4.95 a pop for a... More

Love the George overall but it's Well overdue done sympathetic TLC and updating, right on the verge if acceptable as far as the building / decor is concerted. The food in the garden room and restaurant both very good, service usually good a little off this week. The owner(s) really need to invest in this institution of a hotel /... More

So wonderful to see that you love the George, but please accept my apologies if you found the service to be a little off last week, I will speak to the Service Managers. I was sad to see that you think we need updating as we have a rolling programme of works for both in and outside the hotel, refurbishing... More

Wow this is a well oiled and slickly run hotel. Service is amazing along with top quality food. Loved every minute and will definitely return. Loads of secure parking and centrally located in Stamford close to shops. Expensive but worth every penny. Lunch menu in the garden room is just unbelievable whilst dinner in the panelled dining room must be... More

I'd read the reviews of hotels in the Stamford area and thought I'd visit The George with a view to a weekend break in the summer. So glad I did as I've saved myself from a disappointing stay. The hotel building itself is wonderful with character and wonderful gardens. As with many things, the facade can mask the reality and... More

I am so disappointed to read your review and very sad to think that you found the staff to be aloof and unfriendly. We really do have many wonderful comments about how welcoming all the staff are and we are very proud of the welcome we give, but obviously this did not happen when you arrived. Please accept my apologies.... More

I have spoken to our reservation team regarding your telephone call and you were extremely rude to our staff. I understand that you were not happy because you couldn’t have the rate you wanted and so you started to laugh at the first lady you were speaking to . The Reservation Manager then explained to you about the Pre-Easter offer... More

Service in the York Bar was much improved on our last visit with the right ratio of team members for the volume of customers. The tiny tables are always difficult to manoeuvre when there are 4 of you eating, especially if 2 order soup, the bowl brims are like frisbees. I love the George but it really is top dollar... More

Upon entering the formal gardens with flowering hyacinths to the greeting from all the staff, including decorators and gardeners, you know this will be a positive experience.
