Staff were really welcoming and helped with the organisation, food and rooms were great, nice relaxed atmosphere We were able to check out things in advance and provision was made for elderly mother in wheelchair to dine. We were able to choose the menu and decorate the room and the little children were catered for without any fuss. Due to... More

This is a lovely hotel to stay in, we booked two rooms for the night as we had been on holiday in south Devon and were meeting up with our son and his family, who were holidaying in Cornwall, as we were all going on the Tiverton Balloon Festival. We arrived at the hotel about an hour before booking time... More

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

I am sorry that you were not happy with your stay at The George . Breakfasts can be busy when the hotel is full and we like to get fresh croissants from the shop adjacent to the hotel.. They are delicious Cuisine de France croissants and we find them to be much nicer than catering supplied alternatives. Keeping up with... 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.

Thank you for your review but I think you may have confused us with a restaurant a few doors down from us as we are not open for lunch at the moment and we do not have a patio. Never mind, hopefully next time in South Molton you'll come and visit us perhaps for dinner when we are open or... More

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
