We booked this in a hurry without doing our normal trip advisor checks. A couple of days before, my wife read the reviews and panicked. Upon arrival to IOM we swung by to take a look and check the room, as we were fully prepared to book elsewhere and lose the money we had paid for two nights, based on... More

If I were simply rating the hotel I would rate it terrible; but the pub-grub raised the score. Had I not been with friends with an event-packed itinerary worked out for the whole of our three night/four day stay, I should have turned on my heels and fled - possibly screaming! The George Hotel has to be the filthiest place... More

Stayed one night on business. I think they thought it a bit odd that I booked a double room for single occupancy but experience says that if you book a single room you might get a broom cupboard in some small hotels. The room and bathroom were ok if a bit "creaky". Well it is an older place so to... More

Dingy, no atmosphere, bar staff can't even raise a smile, Sunday lunch a disgrace. Our party had two sprouts each accompanied by two small roast potatoes and the most dire dessert ever. Shocking and as a previous publican and restauranteur I would be ashamed to have my name over the door!

Filthy public areas, see photos of the stairs and landing, the ironing board (argh!) and then my room. I am not averse to spiders and know they can't be stopped, but a vacuum, or feather duster quickly removes cobwebs, like the 2' hanger above my bed. The carpet was stained and had not been vacuumed before we arrived, nor was... More

We understand the place is in need of a refurbishment but that is beyond our control. As for your concerns about the room why did you not mention this to us when you were here. More

This review is purely on the basis of food as we did not stay here. The menu for this place is very uninspiring and I thought dinner was going to be a let-down. Then I spotted the specials board and am so glad I had. The queenies in the tomato salsa were nice, maybe the spice slightly overpowering the delicate... More

Stayed here 2 nights on a coastal walk around the Isle of Man. The room itself was comfortable and the en suite was clean and well appointed. However the room was on the first floor where the kitchen of the hotel was also located. The food was transported downstairs from the kitchen down to the restaurant of the pub. Although... More

This is a typical example of the traditional pub that is tired and trying to reinvent itself. The interior is quite dark and dismal, tatty in places, and yes, the usual horrid "pub" smell and everything felt greasy to the touch (tables, chairs, etc). We found none of the staff to be particularly friendly nor helpful - they just did... More

The good: Location, free Wi-Fi and breakfast. THE BAD: Oh where to start! On entering the main door you are greeted by that all pervasive smell of everything cooked in grease, quite apt really as you are led up the stairs to your rooms following a trail of the aforementioned grease that you stick to with every step! This becomes... More

We arrived on the Friday afternoon for a weekend stay in Castletown and our first impressions of the hotel were not great. We had to check in at the bar, which was full of people who had had plenty to drink, and then wait at the bottom of the stairs to be shown to our rooms. The stair carpet was... More
