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

Agree with Clive, friendly staff, good service excellent food. But hotel was a bit tired, however very good base for Exmoor and touring. I stayed on a 3day Amazon deal and I was very happy with the arrangements.

But quiet when I visited on a Monday eve and so was lacking some atmosphere. That said, the food was good - I had a sort of chilli, ginger Seabass which was well cooked, good value for money & very tasty. Sticky toffee afterwards was a let down as it had been microwaved to within an inch of its life....I'm... More

Had a 2 night stay, booking via an 'Amazon Local' offer. Staff friendly, accommodation everything as stated, though the decor and fittings were rather dated and felt a little 'unloved'. I discovered the Hotel is currently up for sale, so this may be part of the reason. The Dining Room had been updated in this century and the food (especially... More

Thank you for your review. Our rooms were refurbished in 2010 and the restaurant in 2012 and as you rightly state the hotel has lots of character with traditional architecture and modern decor. We do have a programme of regular maintenance too. More

Just spent two nights here on a deal with Amazon local. Large clean room with comfortable bed and en suite facilities. Good food at breakfast and dinner with friendly service. Well placed for access to Exmoor.

The positives: We stayed using the Amazon local offer so the cost was reasonable. The staff were friendly and the room was reasonably spacious, clean and warm. The breakfasts were reasonable and I was able to ask for something which was not specified on the menu and it was cooked for me. The not so positives: When we first arrived... More

Thank you for your review and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I'm sorry you didn't find the mattress to your liking. We are often complemented on how comfortable the beds are so perhaps it is just personal taste. I must also assure you that the hotel kitchens are fully maintained and in good working order, in fact we had... More
