“Fine for the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2011

Big comfy room, clean bed (less clean towels...), ok brekky, good value for a one night stopover.
Very noisy til middle of night due to entuisaistic revellers in high street. not pub's fault!

Room Tip: if there are any, have a room that doesn't face the high street. Car park would be a much better...

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.

Although the hotel is a bit dated room wise, you receive a warm welcome, and the service is good. It also has a lot of history to the place.

The George looked lovely on line and we needed somewhere to stay overnight to break our journey from Sussex to Somerset. My husband is 85 and I am no youingster. We were booked in (not greeted) by a dour scot who seemed only interested in our money. No help in climbing 2 flights of stairs with suit-case. The room was comfortable but shabby and the bath was rusty.
Next morning on asking if there was a nearby newsagent to get a morning paper was told to be quick as breakfast stopped serving in 10 mins. I asked for fresh fruit and told the two bananas had gone. The toast was sliced white bread (including the crust) laid out on a plate and the toaster was incredibly old and burnt it.
No "hope you enjoyed your stay" when we checked out only whether we needed to pay for dinner (no) .
The worst place I have ever stayed in and £1 dearer per night
than the lovely guest house we were staying at in Wells.

Room Tip: Don't bother

We stayed at the George on a Saturday night and the noise from the karaoke/club bar went on until 2 in the morning and was then followed by people talking loudly outside until 2.30. We had to be up early to take part in a marathon walk from Stonehenge to Avebury the next morning so needed our sleep. My daughter asked for a room change and was told the hotel was full and the best thing to do was join in or turn the TV on to drown out the noise! We were given a £10 discount but were not happy with the lack of concern. We did not use the restaurant as it was a limited menu. We were, however, given a good packed breakfast to take with us and the beds were comfortable. The rooms though were shabby and in need of a good clean. The whole place seemed decayed and in need of immediate refurbishment. Wish we had gone to the Holiday Inn close by and would not recommend.

All seemed ok. Nice size car park. Friendly staff. Then we got into room 19, 3 beds. Room very warm, windows open, it was a warm day. The evening the room got warmer, the noise from outside went on till 3. Will not staying here again.
