We had a lovely afternoon tea of jam and oven fresh scones with clotted cream - delicious! Wasn't the cheapest we've ever had - but you have to invest in the view across the water and along that lovely old listed wooden pier. Very classy and well worth it! We'll be back and maybe stay over next time - we're... More

You can see the historic hotel and its seafront gardens as the ferry heads into the picturesque village of Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. It's changed hands in the past year and the new owner is clearly investing - the two restaurants have been beautifully renovated and it seems work is ongoing updating bedrooms. I stayed in the recently... More

We were aware before we arrived that The George was being refurbished and we were put in one of the old rooms. I was rather nervous that it would be rather like staying with your granny but it wasn't at all! Lovely comfy big bed, fresh modern curtains, cushions etc. We ate in the smarter of the two resturants for... More

Thank you for your review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed a two night get away with us and that we were able to dispel the nerves by offering an old bedroom which was still lovely, fresh and modern – not at all like Granny's! We are very lucky to enjoy such a stunning location. Do come back soon! More

I ate and slept wonderfully at this lovely hotel where the new owner shows attention to detail that makes a real difference to comfort. I loved being able to walk off the ferry and just turn the corner to find this lovely hotel situated on the waterfront.

Just 60 steps from the ferry, you enter The George, beautiful arrays of flowers greet you, a step back in time, with a beautiful stair case leading up to your room, a rustic homely feel. Rooms tastefully decorated with new en suite, and a selection of teas, coffee & hot chocolate to make. Isla's conservatory at the rear of the... More

Thank you for your lovely review and for noting all the little extra’s that make The George so special. “A very special unpretentious decadent meal with knowledgeable staff to serve & advise” is exactly our aim for Isla's. It was a pleasure to meet you both - please do come back soon. More

A very comfortable stay over Easter with good food,and service, free wi-fi and the facility for subtitles on the TV.. There is a ground floor room with wheelchair access and there are plenty of disabled parking spaces in the town .Definitely a hotel for a return visit at a different time of the year.

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

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.
