Had breakfast and dinner each day in the conservatory during my stay. I have stayed in hundreds of hotels over the years and can honestly say the breakfast here is as good or better than any. Everything is fresh and cooked perfectly. Hot dishes are served hot as is the coffee. Dinner menu is adequate for a short stay and... More

What better place to spend a balmy summers evening than the George. It gets the afternoon sun and everything about it is so nice. You won't be dissapointed.

Isla's is definitely fine dining. All our dishes were fantastic. We enjoyed sirloin steak, sea bream, fish pie and kids chicken goujons. Desserts were treacle tart, sundaes and creme brulee (each £7). We hadn't booked but it was not a problem, lovely friendly lady greeted us and showed us to the restaurant (access to restaurant is through the hotel front... More

Thank you for your review, you actually dined in our Conservatory Restaurant as opposed Isla’s fine dining restaurant however we were delighted that everything was perfect for you! The Long White we have to guess was our Crossing Sauvignon Blanc. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. Kind regards Sarah Evans General Manager More

We descended upon The George (having booked in advance, it has to be said) for a family lunch at the weekend. With 16 of the clan in tow, plus two dogs, we were certainly a fair size. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. The George are very dog friendly but, understandbly, don't take dogs inside the restaurant itself, so... More

We went to the conservatory restaurant, hungry after a hard day's kayaking. The portions are small but perfectly formed; if you need big portions to be happy try the Bugle nearby. We had four courses of rather excellent food. The service is attentive without being obtrusive. Excellent wine available by the glass ( I particularly enjoyed the Pinot noir). Our... More

We booked into the George to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. Hubby and I ordered the beef fillet for two- cooked rare. When it came out it was so far from rare that it was burnt and dry. Not a great celebration of our one years marriage! We complained and received £15 off of the £60 cost of the beef.... More

Looks very posh from outside and is also inside but so lovely and welcoming to dogs. We have always avoided before but the staff so lovely and welcoming. They even do dog crisps and dog beer. It is absolutely stunning in the garden with its little private beach. Didnt try but the BBQ looked really good

Walking in, we were blinded by the all white impersonal decor. They had the radio on playing classical music which was okay... until we had to listen to ads for various businesses.

Nice setting, lovely garden. The waiting staff are misinformed on their specials in that they all offer contradicting information. The food was tasty, however the portion size is incredibly small for the price, central London has cheaper food in nicer establishments.
