We, my friend and I, recently stayed at the George Hotel for a special birthday celebration weekend. I have often admired the George Hotel and thought it would be a wonderful surprise and treat for my friends birthday and so booked us a room. I could not wait, she deserved a treat. I was however disappointed. The room was small... More

We had a really good feel about this place from the moment we arrived – it’s a very large, handsome building with a beautiful, historic interior and a cosy bar. The welcome was equally warm, and there was none of the unnecessary tour of duty you get in some hotels – a simple handing over of the keys with directions... More

We spent New Year's Eve at The George - the first under new ownership and with Robert Thompson as chef. We ate in Isla's. The food was superb and catered for a vegetarian that can't eat mushrooms alongside three 'normal' people! Dinner was immaculately timed to take us up to a lovely firework display at midnight and then back for... More

We've stayed at The George a number of times over the years, but now under new ownership and with top chef Robert Thompson having joined (who will I am sure get his Michelin star back very soon) it was absolutely a fantastic New Year's Eve in every way. The rooms are comfortable, the ambience and staff friendly and welcoming and... More

We booked late and ended up with a small room on the top floor.(no 21) There was a large cupboard which was good for putting away clothes and room for suitcases as well. It could have done with a light inside as lighting in the room consisted of table lamps only so difficult to see when getting your clothes out... More

This is an exceptionally fine hotel and we are delighted to have found it, even on a weekend of miserable December weather. Our room was spacious with a huge bed and lovely sea views - we were told we should have been in a room with an even better aspect, but it had recently been painted and there was still... More

I stayed here for one night as a little romantic getaway! The hotel was lovely. The staff were great and couldn't do enough for you, especially a waiter in the conservatory who served us for dinner and breakfast. The room was nice and clean with lovely little extra toiletries which haven't been standard in other hotels I've stayed at. We... More

I was expecting to enjoy my weekend at The George Hotel in Yamouth, but found the experience far exceeded those expectations. The new owner Dianne Thompson set the tone with her warm welcome and the attention to detail in the bedroom was a bonus with a large and comfy bed. The friends who came with us reacted as jut as...

Wow - we arrived by ferry late on Friday night and received a lovely 'Island Welcome' at The George. We were shown to rooms 26 & 27. Ours (26) with a huge, gorgeous crisp white bed, buried in luxurious pillows in a wood panelled room. Our window peeked over the sea through the garden - we love this room! The... More

Had a lovely weekend. All the staff were lovely, the food was great. Breakfast in the conservatory was amazing, can't believe it's November!! The room was perfect...Diane, relatively new owner I think, was the perfect host and was very attentive in a social and relaxing way. Topped off with Michael`s superb cocktails... Try the Rusty Cook!
