“Great stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at The George during our first visit to Cheltenham.
We were made very welcome and the free parking takes the worry out of arriving. Our room was very nice, however it was right on the stairs near reception so we found it a bit noisy. We asked to move for the second night and found it much more relaxing in a quiet room. The hotel staff were very helpful in this matter.
We ate at Monty's on the first night. It was good but not amazing considering the price at £45 per head. The waiting staff were excellent though, both in the evenings and at breakfast.
The hotel is in such a convenient location so it's easy to explore Cheltenham, would definitely return! Also loved that each room had heated towel rails, bathrobes and complimentary water, it's this attention to detail that sets a hotel apart from others.

This hotel is in a perfect location, being a two minute walk from the Promenade, with its lovely shops. Nicely decorated, clean, comfortable room. Staff were amiable and attentive, both in the hotel and in Monty's Restaurant. Restaurant was a little pricey but food was excellent. The live music on Friday and Saturday filtered through from the downstairs cocktail bar, which added to the ambiance.

Just returned from a week-end break at The George and can thoroughly recommend it. The rooms are modern and spotless, the staff are cheerful and attentive. The restaurant is also very good with a great full English breakfast and again happy and polite staff. We dined in the restaurant the first night and enjoyed a lovely evening with great food but our only gripe was the price, a 3 course meal for two with wine, two aperitifs and two coffees came to £96, the second night we found an Italian restaurant (Giannis) just around the corner and had a very similar meal(inc wine & drinks) for £60. Despite the restaurant prices we would definitely return to The George and will recommend it to friends.

Nice sized and well appointed room, with a wet room bathroom with a large bath. There is no lift or aircon which wasn't a problem (it was October) and we are fit enough to get to the top with relative ease. The full English breakfast is great as well.

This hotel is what added to a fantastic weekend in cheltnam. The food is fantastic especially the English breakfast and our evening meal was also great. It is a small hotel but this makes it more personal. The staff are friendly and very helpful. There is a cocktail bar downstairs which serves ok drinks and on the Saturday evening the live music was so good and different it had everyone dancing. The location is perfect 2-5 mins walk from the centre. For myself and my friend it was a great Girly weekend and we will definately go back. Only negative things where that the bathroom was very small so just check if that could be a problem it wasn't really for us. The other thing that was a all negative point is when service is included in a bill - this should be your choice and we were not brought our change ontop of what they had added which I thought was a little rude as the tip that was added was alot for an £80 meal. This is more of a personal gripe and on my next visit would check about this before the meal. By the way I am a great tipper but this is my choice.

Me and my friend just got back from a weekend in Cheltenham and this is hands down the friendliest hotel I’ve ever stayed in. Service from Reception Staff, Bar / Restaurant and Room Service were exceptional.
We ate in Monty’s on the Saturday evening (they squeezed us in last minute because it was fully booked by locals & other guests which I think shows how good this place is!) the food & wine was faultless and the atmosphere was chilled out & relaxing.
The cocktail bar under the hotel is chic and even did half price cocktails on a Friday evening to our delight! Live music both Fri & Sat night which were both great. We got a Full English Breakfast both mornings, no scrimping here… big portions and lovely fresh fruit, croissants and toast to accompany.
Genuinely could not knock this hotel. In terms of Cleanliness, Service, Décor, Location and cost. All of which are 10/10.

Thanks to everyone at The George – We’ll be back!

Had a fantastic nights stay at the George, lovely hotel, and staff were excellent. We booked a small double through laterooms.com for £85...room was comfortable and nicely decorated, the only thikng I would say was that it was very warm in the room. The heating was on when we got in the room, even though I turned it off, opened the window for the rest of the day in the middle of October, and all night it was still extremely hot in the room. Other than that, excellent hotel...did not use the restaurant but it looked very nice, and was busy...like the cocktail bar downstairs which was a plus!

Room Tip: choose a room at the back of the hotel, away from the main road
