The George Hotel is perfectly situated in the centre of Yarmouth adjacent the shops, fantastic deli, pubs and ferry. The rooms are currently under refurbishment but what the rooms slightly lack at present the welcoming staff make up for in spades. The service is excellent so the hotel can build from here which they clearly are doing. We will definitley... More

Our stay started with a drink in the bar with the new owner, continued with an amazing dinner, comfortable nights sleep and gorgeous breakfast. Nothing but praise for this place and the staff. Interested to see how the new owners plans improve it even further. Its in a different league to anywhere else I have stayed on the Isle of... More

Having sailed across to Yarmouth we decided to take advantage of The George's lovely garden overlooking the sea. What started out as one drink turned into a lovely afternoon in the garden followed up by couple of cocktails by the open fire once the temp dropped and it got a bit nippy outside! The staff were very friendly (& efficient)... More

We consider ourselves extremely lucky to have found this unsung gem. It is a beautifully run English country hotel, by that I mean that the service is very friendly whilst maintaining superb efficiency. The food is delicious in both of the restaurants - the fine dining being a particular treat. The rooms are sumptiously comfortable and every detail is scrutinised... More

A bit late with my review! We ate in the conservatory what turned out to be very ample taster meal. The chef really excelled himself with the courses served at pleasant intervals. Having retired at 3.00am the following morning's Brunch was a nice touch with a lamb cutlet in the English breakfast. The rooms were comfortable but a little tired... More

We took advantage of the winter special break for three night B,B&EM. Excellent bedroom, tendency to get cold quickly in the larger than average bathroom but who wants to spend time there? Highlights include the lounges with roaring fires, although one fireplace required a chimney sweep following smoke billowing bak into the room. Staff are excellent, although one or two... More

We used to live in Yarmouth, and decided to have a long weekend as a Christmas Present, staying at the George Hotel, which is about 200m from where we used to live. It has changed hands a few times since we first stayed there when we were house hunting. Unfortunately, the balcony room which we booked turned out not to... More

This hotel is in the heart of Yarmouth, right by the castle, harbour, marina and ferry terminal, but still very quiet. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are nicely furnished and come with lots of little extras that make them seem special, such as bathrobes, quality bed linen, posh toiletries etc. The breakfast menu was extensive with the...

We went for lunch at the picturesque The George this afternoon and we were not disappointed! The room was beautifully laid out and the service was on point which is refreshing for the island. We had a three course meal and all dishes were delicious and unique in their own way. I had the pork belly and cheek and it... More

It was Saturday night and the two most highly recommended restaurants were full, so we decided to slum it and look for anywhere that was serving breaded cod. We stumbled into the George Hotel with out two toddlers and were ushered past two matronly women in the office, into a dining room that was completely empty. This was going to... More
