“Won't be going back”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

First of all the staff were very helpful however that is where it ended. The decor of the hotel was ok but needed to be renewed. When I went into my room, which was the bridal suite, I was expecting some elegance. Not in the slightest. If I had just got married I would have been very disappointed with the room. A bathroom with just a sink, toilet, bath and overhead shower is not what i would have expected. I was looking around and noticed either blood but more likely to be old tea or coffee in the sink with a nice cup ring stain to top it off. Once raised it was cleaned almost immediately.The room needed a good dusting and there were various cobwebs hanging from the lights around the room. One of the bedside lights wasn't even working. Not the worst I have ever stayed in but will certainly not be going back.

Room Tip: Go to a different hotel!!

Room was on the face of it clean but on closer inspection around the back of the television was about a fortnights grime.
The stairway was dirty with paper and dirt on the floor ,there was a filthy stained matress on the stairs.
Staff were polite and friendly,breakfast was adequate,dining area quite disappointing ,I would hate to call it a restuarant.
Not good value for money, cleanliness is a major issue.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else

Enjoyed one night in this quirky old hotel. Large room and large bathroom with everything that was needed. Good breakfast and very nice evening meal. Large car park at the rear which was very convenient.

We stayed here for 1 night. Room 28, bed was on a slope as the room is in the attic, but that is the only negative. Breakfast was served swiftly and was great. Good location in the high street. Would stay here again and recommend to family, friends and strangers.

Just had 2 rooms for 3 nights.
The history of the building explains much - an historical resting house for pilgrims to Amesbury Abbey. The property is wonderful and OLD, so wooden beams, wobbly, uneven and squeaky floors, fireplaces to die for,very dim lighting. Unfortunately spoilt by modern requirements. This place was not designed for en suites, TV's, or modern lightling or electrical sockets. Is there sound proofing - I dont think so, I had no sleep 3 nights as you can hear every bodily function not to mention TV from next door, upstairs etc.
Main grudge which there is no excuse for - poor housekeeping. The place is filthy. The decor is 1980's, OK, but there is no excuse for hairy showers/baths/floors - like tumbleweed. Dirty cups, mirrors, basins,every door where anyone has ever touched is filthy! Including downstairs - dirty crockery, plates and glasses.
No housekeeping for the 3 nights so had to ask lovely barman for clean towels on 3rd night as we were desperate for a wash and dry towels!
Evening 'buffet' - don't even go there!
If a company were to throw millions here it would be amazing!
Would I stay there again - possibly but I would never let my parents go here!! I am 50 and taking late teens so weren't expecting 5* - but did expect clean.
Do not stay over a weekend as this is the place for young peoples entertainment in this village and till 2am. I would imagine hideously noisy.

Recently booked a 2 night stay at the George Hotel in Amesbury SP4 7ET. I had a single room 11 and will start by saying DONT STAY. The room was small cramped and at no time did it get cleanded or did I have my bed made up. The decor was old tired and the bed was in a similar state.

Seeing as I was using the hotel for a business stay I would expect a decent internet WIFI connection this also was poor to say the least.

The lady that runs the Kitchen was the only part of my stay that resembled a happy thought seeing as she was polite, friendly. The quaility of food was not very high but the lady did her very best.

Not a venue I would recomend to anyone bar that ot the locals who frequent the bar.
