We recently spent 3 nights at the George hotel in South Molton. The staff were welcoming - at least the two we saw were! Maybe the only staff? The hotel itself is dilapidated & desperately needs some money spent on it. It is up for sale in a local estate agents for £400k which is less than a lot of... More

Nice place to go for a quick lunch and coffee in the village of South Molton. Good location next to the village market. Prompt friendly service on the outdoor patio. Recommend stopping by if in the pretty village of South Molton in North Devon England.

My family and I needed a place to stay for one night in South Molton. the staff at the George bent over backwards to accommodate us, and all at a very reasonable rate, as we needed to leave early they even put on breakfast early for us

I have the highest respect for small independent hoteliers who work really hard to offer a clean competent and characterful experience. I liked my stay and will certainly be back. The service was just my right for the situation. Warm, unpretentious, good humoured. I can understand it might not suit the pompous but they should go somewhere else and pay... More

Food was terrible. Out of the 4 meals ordered, I wouldn't have fed 3 of them to a dog. The waitress (possibly the owner, I'm not sure) was incredibly rude when we complained. Will never go back again, even if PAID!!

The George Hotel is rather tired but a good base for touring. The car parking facilities are excellent and the family room which my husband and I had was fine. I don't understand previous remarks about it being noisy at the front of the hotel, as we found it very quiet indeed and had an uninterrupted sleep each night. The... More

Please don't be deceived by its rather lack lustre exterior and slightly dated decor and furnishings. We booked a last minute weekend away through Amazon Local and were a little disappointed at first, possible because South Molton itself was totally closed on a Friday afternoon. However, South Molton was ideally placed to visit more popular tourist attractions like Lynmouth, Lynton... More

The Hotel is old and the floors are all out of whack etc BUT it was built during the 1700's and so what would you expect! It is a wonderful building and the crooked nature of it adds to its charm. It is clean, the staff are very friendly and the breakfasts were lovely too! WE had a special offer... More
