We had difficulty in finding this place because of a major road closure which we weren't warned about. Even phoning the hotel he never pointed out the diversion. Finally got there and it is a lovely place. After quickly checking in, we immediately went to the restaurant to order a meal. The roast dinner we were so looking forward to... More

I thought The George provided a beautiful surrounding for the wedding which we attended. The food we had the night before the wedding was delicious, and we were very impressed with the breakfast options. The staff were friendly and professional and looked after the wedding party very well. The décor in the room was a little behind the times, but... More

We chose The George as we had our wedding reception there 26 years ago so this was a trip down memory lane. It was still as pretty as I remember with lovely rooms and riverside setting. As another wedding was about to take place at the weekend, staff were preparing the main reception room and it was lovely to be... More

My wife and I arrived at 2pm for a wedding in a hotel 3 miles away but found that our room was not ready: so we changed for the wedding in an adjacent room. When we did get into the room 15 minutes later we discovered that it was drab: very beige and 1970's. On our return later in the... More

What an amazing time we had here. We travelled over for a family wedding and it was amazing from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff! Special mention to Nick the night porter/ bar man! But all the staff were fab! Food was great, everything was clean as a whistle and the atmosphere just added to... More

We found the staff very friendly and helpful, the room was reasonly spaces and comfortable and well appointed, clean and laundered Dailey. However the menue was basic and very limited and average quality, and overpriced by 20-30% the breakfast was poor quality the full English breakfast was largely tasteless and the bread stale and dry.

We called "on speck" and while we were cautious about the menu - my husband has a severe allergy to garlic- to our delight, the steak that he chose was the best that he had ever eaten - and he should know since he has been a beef farmer all of his life . My portion of traditional fish and... More

I honestly don't know why we stayed and why we did not send back the over cooked food we were servced by staff who didn't seem to feel bothered to take our order. Definitely won't be back. On a positive note the bar was clean.
