My partner & I, including 4 children under 6years of age, stayed at the George on good Friday/15, for 1 night only (thankfully). Upon arrival everything seemed OK at first glance. The lady at the bar checked me in and showed me to my room, she struggled to crack a smile though. Room seemed ok, so collected kids and got... More

Very welcoming when I arrived. All staff were polite and the locals were lovely and welcoming too. Our room was small but was happy with it as it was big enough for myself and my little one. Will quite happily stay again.

Although difficult to find, it was worth the effort. We arrived the evening of the village's firework night & the pub was packed. We were shown to our room which was small but perfect for our needs with a spotless en-suite. We decided to go back down to the packed pub which gradually emptied as the fireworks were due to...

We stayed here following a visit to Woodlands, which is a two minute drive away. The traditional exterior of this Inn may reflect the bar but certainly not the rooms, which are modern and spotlessly clean. Our en-suite appeared to be recently refurbished to a high standard with a large walk-in shower unit. The family room was a decent size... More

Thank you for taking the time and effort to write such an in depth review. As you've pointed out the traditional exterior reflects the bar, some love, some hate this fact. Traditional pub bars are a dying breed. We apologise for the noise from the bar but we do try our best to make sure noise levels are kept to... More

We as a team are very disappointed that you felt your stay was so awful. The room you stayed in is an adequate double as rated, our Visit England inspector came shortly after your visit and was pleased with our newly refurbished ensuite and the cleanliness of all rooms and ensuites, he found no evidence of cobwebs in any rooms....

We stayed here just before the May bank holiday for 2 nights and couldn't have been made more welcome. The room was clean, as was the ensuite, and we had a terrific view over the Devon countryside. We ate in the bar both nights, the food was good and the service excellent. This was the type of traditional english pub... More

Great tip to prospective guests - rooms 1 & 2 have the countryside view whilst rooms 3 & 4 have the village view.

We stopped at the George Inn for two nights last week and felt very welcome throughout. The room was clean, bright and comfortable. The ensuite must have just been refitted - lovely. The breakfast was great - a really good choice including smoked salmon and scrambled eggs alongside the traditional breakfast. We ate in the pub both evenings with friends... More

Friendly staff, very comfortable room with super bathroom, generous supply of coffee, tea etc.. Breakfast was excellent. We didn't eat in the evening but the menu looked very good. Only ten minutes drive to Dartmouth--would be happy to return.
