Would definitely recommend this 17th century hotel (it was the headquarters for General Fairfax during the British Civil War in the 1600s) for Americans interested in experiencing an old village inn. Rooms were large. Beds comfortable with freshly washed and ironed sheets and duvets. Remodeled en suite bathrooms. No lift and the stairs are steep and tilt every-which-way. The floors also slope, but that adds to the charm.
Traditional British pub downstairs offers good meals and atmosphere, perhaps the best we experienced in our stay in Great Britain. There's a small aviation museum in the lobby which made for interesting after-dinner purusing. Free breakfast in remodeled dining room offered typical English breakfast fare - everything fried but well-prepared.
Noise. We were there on a weekday in October so it was quiet, but I can imagine the pub could get noisy on the weekends and when a game is on. Our room overlooked High Street and we could hear morning traffic, which was fine because we wanted to see Stonehenge early in the morning. Fell asleep instantly because we were exhausted from touring Salisbury the previous day. Amesbury is 5 minutes from Stonehenge and Old Sarum and 10 minutes from Salisbury. A perfect mid location.
My cousins who live in the UK said they will definitely bring future visiting family and friends to the George Hotel.
