The George has been around for as long as anyone can remember, but in early 2016 it was been treated to a huge makeover including all 15 en-suite bedrooms. Standing proudly in the centre of Shipston High Street, it still remains as the tallest building on the street at three and a half stories. We describe the look as modern yet sympathetic to it's late 18th century features with a feel of casual elegance about it. All the rooms are decorated to a high standard, offering a comfy place to stay. Their sophisticated simplicity gives them a luxurious feel. They all have en-suite bathrooms and breakfast is always included. The ground floor of the George Townhouse is spacious, and our extensive menu covers all meal times. Call in at the start of the day and enjoy a freshly cooked Full English breakfast in the parlour, or pop into our garden room to sample a sharing board and glass of wine over lunch. In the evening treat yourself to a steak in the pantry, sourced from Todenham Manor Farm just 4 miles away.

Stayed 1 night (Saturday) with friends and couldn't fault it,from checking in with the friendly guy who gave us the key and a complimentary set packaged up neatly boxed to checking out with the friendly young woman. The room was large with a very large bathroom and rain shower with plenty of storage space in bathroom and bedroom ,plenty of wall sockets,large comfortable bed,large TV,and coffee machine.We had evening meal and Breakfast which were both excellent,maybe a bit pricey(but I am a Yorkshire man) but would have them again.There is parking at the rear but being Saturday We parked at the front as its free street parking from tea time and all Sunday.Corvid 19 measures in place,friendly and good service,and would definitely stay again.

The welcome was warm and staff very friendly. The room we had was comfortable and although facing the road was a lot more peaceful than I expected. Had a meal in the restaurant and generally to a high standard although the steak I had didn’t quite get done long enough in full. Although staff were quite happy to sort that out for me I politely refused as was full by that point. My only complaint is the parking. There seems to be only 9 parking places out the back of the hotel and the rest have to play about with parking restrictions in the parking bays out the front of the hotel. Not idea if you check in at 3pm and would have thought priority would be for customers staying at hotel rather than free for all with people just using the bar and restaurant when ample parking out the

Thank you for taking the time to give us some feedback. We're sorry that parking was enough to put a dampener on your experience with us. Whilst you are correct in saying that the bays in the square at the front of the building have a 2 hour limit, as well as our car park that is unlimited, there are an additional two car parks only a two minute walk round the corner from us with free parking for 24 hours. All of our team do their best to accommodate parking for guests and we do also put out cones for guests who make parking requests. We're really glad that you enjoyed the rest of your stay and hope that we can welcome you again soon.

Stayed at the George Townhouse for 2 nights in a comfy room. Staff were very professional, welcoming, helpful and very polite, nothing was too much trouble for them. Although the room was advertised as being comfy, it was more than big enough, very clean and comfortable with a very large en suite bathroom, again immaculate. We got a deal which included breakfast and this was lovely, plentiful and tasty. If I had any complaints (and I really don't), it would be that the quilt was a winter one and a bit too hot, and the in room fan didn't seem powerful enough on one of the hottest days of the year. I would certainly stay at this lovely hotel again and would definitely recommend it. A lovely experience.
