We thought South Molton would be a convenient centre to re-visit old haunts of many years ago in North Devon and the voucher deal offered a reasonable price. I would class the hotel as what used to be called a "commercial hotel" I.e. offering acceptable facilities for a short stay business traveller. Staff, beds and food were all excellent but... More

Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. All staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Food was good. The restaurant was closed on Sunday evening but we were provided with bar meals which were perfectly acceptable. In addition the location was perfect and South Molton is a charming little town

The hotel staff were very helpful with booking and being flexible. They were welcoming and the breakfast was good. They kept the bar open for us on the first night until the early hours, but bizarrely, when it was the owners job to work the bar, it shut by 10.30. The rooms were OK. We may go back there next...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I would like to take this opportunity to apologise again to you for the closure of the bar before your return to the hotel on your second night's stay. Had I been aware of this as a requirement I would have arranged suitable late night cover. However I am pleased... More

I am avid user of Intercontinental Hotels, and if honest more than a bit of a hotel room snob. I suppose it comes from being away so much over the years. When I had need to be in South Molton for a business meeting I was forced to either face a 40 mile drive from the nearest IHG (I do... More

What a lovely little hotel! We only stayed one night on a business trip but hope to return shortly for a longer more leisurely stay. The staff we extremely helpful and the room spotless - if a little quirky, due to the two steps down from the landing. The bathroom, obviously recently refurbished, was equally clean, but missing a shelf... More

I spent 2 nights at this hotel, I was made to feel very welcome as soon as I arrived. Although a 2 star, I was pleasantly surprised by how nice it was inside.

2nd time we've been here and it was excellent. The staff were always helpful and everything we required was excellent. The breakfast (cooked to order) was superb and all ingredients were local produce and plentiful. Easy to get to, parking supplied. Will stay again.

Ate here on spec when staying in the area, and returned 3 times as the variety of the menu was good, the food was very tasty, wine good value, and the service was excellent. One evening was an entertainment night, but they fitted us in and we were made very welcome again. Lovely art on the walls by local artist,... More

The George has potential, but is grubby and delapitated on the outside. Inside there are areas that seem to have have stuff dumped in corners . The rooms are dark. The restaurant seems to have been renovated some time ago, but more recently than other areas. The restaurant is overpriced for the food served. There was a table of 5... More
