We used this hotel as abase for our few days in the Cotswold's for it's central location. This historic pub has a very warm feel to it and has a real English country charm, and a beautiful garden to enjoy a drink in. The rooms are traditional, the beds are warm and the restaurant has a reasonable selection.

Would I go back? Simply yes. Plenty of parking, huge comfy beds. Decent food and drink, plenty of choice at breakfast time. Staff friendly and engaging. The village of Birdlip is just off some major road networks, so near to Cheltenham, Gloucester, Stroud and Cirencester. The M5 is very near so has good transport links around the whole Cotswolds area.

As a wedding venue, the Royal George has excelled for my new wife and I. We elected to have both our ceremony and reception on site. The price of the package was very competitive, given the superb quality of the location, what was included and with the organisational support and service provided for the day. All of the staff couldn't... More

This really is a curate's egg of a place. On the positive side the chain that run the pub/hotel have spent a lot of money on the rooms. They are spacious, well appointed, and a cut above what you would expect from pub accommodation. We ate in the restaurant. Clearly very popular. Food was somewhat basic but perfectly acceptable.

Fantastic place to stay in the countryside. Great beer garden and meals and the best breakfast we had throughout our week in England. Wifi was excellent, parking easy. Highly recommend if you enjoy the peace of a small village. Easy access to other areas of the Cotswolds

Everything about The Royal George was lovely. Clean, modern well equipped room, and pleasant staff. The food was very good, reasonably priced-we had our evening meal there, and breakfast was served until 10am which is ideal for us. Again, this was excellent. The bar prices were not expensive and had real ales-a plus. The surrounding areas and gardens are lovely... More

Very welcoming hotel sat in the heart of this little village at the top of a very long, very steep hill. The ground floor room was quiet, comfortable and very reasonably priced. I enjoyed a very nice steak with chips and the service in the restaurant was very good, above average and again, very friendly. The restaurant features quite possibly... More

Our room was fairly basic but comfortable. We had dinner in the restaurant on Saturday evening and the service was good although choice for vegetarians was limited. Food was average. Breakfast on Sunday morning was chaotic because there had been a wedding and a party arrive all at the same time. It took 25 minutes before our order was taken... More

Stayed here on a 2 night business trip, very friendly staff, restaurant and bar were very good, my steak was still mooing when they brought it out but quickly changed it as soon as I pointed this out to them. The rooms are a tad dated, ive stayed in some of the other chains in this hotel and they have... More

We were driving to the Cotswolds and needed somewhere to crash for the night. To be honest, I was expecting a very mediocre, if not poor place (it appears like a budget chain.) We got there really late after a long drive and it was nice to walk in to a warm welcome from the pleasant hotel manager. Polite, no... More
