Certificate of Excellence
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.

Spent a lovely night here in September. Room was large with a bay window overlooking the high street. The bed was so comfortable like a giant marshmallow! Had a meal in the restaurant in the evening and it was really good, and the bar had a nice vibe to it. Breakfast was also excellent. Would definitely return if we are in the area again.

Seems to be echoing a lot of similar reviews here... Food: The food in the evening was pretty bad. We both had the same meal, burgers. Mine was pink in the middle and very bland and my husbands was overdone, the chips were very greasy. One member of staff seemed very concerned and offered us a dessert but we were meeting friends and didn't fancy it. All other staff members we came into contact with either ignored us completely or were uninterested in what we were saying to them. Breakfast was really good, we weren't expecting it to be from the experience of the night before but were pleasantly surprised.. Room: Neat and fairly clean but some built up mold in the bathroom and the windows had smeared dirty water around the frames. Coat hooks were hanging out of the wall and we

Thank you for your honest feedback, it is genuinely appreciated. I'm really sorry that we failed in the areas that you have outlined in your review. I will be working hard throughout our business to improve our standards. I have already addressed the issues raised with your evening meal with our chefs, both on the night and then following up afterwards. We would have happily replaced your meal either with a new burger or something else. I am truly sorry that your experience with some of our team was a poor one. It's something that I'm not used to hearing. We will also be addressing both the maintenance and cleanliness issues that you have raised in regards to your room. I very much would like for you to return to us and give us a second chance to wow you. Please could I ask that you contact me via email on gm@thegeorgeshipston.co.uk so that I can discuss this further with you? Kind Regards Matthew Hiscoe General Manager

We went for dinner last night to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Ordered baked camembert to start. Don’t know where it was baked but it wasn’t in an oven. Told the waiter, he didn’t apologise. The replacement came and my wife said to him, wait while I try it, and he said no he was too busy. He didn’t come back to check it was ok. Main course arrived but without the sauce and onion rings we’d ordered. As it turned out we shouldn’t have bothered waiting. The pepper sauce was tasteless and the onion rings tasted purely of fat. My chips were solid. I told the waiter and his response was they are triple cooked that’s how they are. They were inedible. He offered us a free desert in compensation but when we didn’t fancy anything we told him to knock something off the bill instead. He

Dear Robert Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. I am shocked to have read a review that shows such a poor visit for you and your wife. It is not a description of how I would want any of our guests to experience their time with us, nor is it the kind of review that I am used to having to respond to. It truly saddens me to hear that a member of staff who is no longer in our employment treated you in such a manner. In your review you have said that you won't be coming again but I would very much like to request that you return as my guest. We want all of our guests to leave us happier than when they arrived. Clearly this was not the case on this occasion. I very much hope that you will take me up on my offer and give us a chance to right this wrong. Please contact me on: gm@thegeorgeshipston.co.uk I sincerely hope to hear from you soon. Matthew Hiscoe General Manager

Stayed here for 2 nights whilst in the area visiting relatives and what a good choice we made. Our room number 3 was enormous with a large bow window that overlooked the square and also with a large en-suite bathroom with a roll top bath and a fabulous walk in shower. All amenities were provided including tea and coffee making facilities and the gift of a bag of local fudge was much appreciated! We did experience some early morning noise (7.15am) when the dustbin men arrived but that is no fault of the hotel and it only lasted a few minutes. I expect the noise level is a bit higher when the"Mop Fair" is on so check your dates. The breakfast was first class with a either a full English or a continental along with cereals, fruit etc etc. The cooked breakfast is prepared to order
