“Quick trip to Keswick”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

This was the third time my partner and I have stayed at The George and have to stay that we love it even more every time we visit.
We stayed in room 4 and couldn't fault it. Plenty of room, spacious very comfy bed and lovely very clean bathroom.
The staff were all young and very polite and helpful. We were made to feel very welcome.
We did not eat at The George as we were going to the theatre but returned later to enjoy an evening in the bar.
After an excellent night's sleep we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast and reluctantly checked out. As we were spending the day in Keswick we were told we could leave the car in their car park until it was time to go home.
To all the staff.. thanks for a wonderful stay.. you all are a credit to the hotel and we both look forward to returning very soon.

We booked our stay solely on what we had read from reviews. It was a very enjoyable. All the staff (and management) were so courteous, helpful and efficient. The room (no 2) was more than acceptable with sufficient space to move about quite freely and plenty of storage. The location is first-class and the pub has a lovely atmosphere in the evening with plenty of customers. We ate in on both night and selected very different food, all of which was most tasteful. Breakfasts were scrumptious.
Parking is limited (four allocated bays) but we were lucky to get one adjacent. If there is nowhere to park that is handy don't forget to ask for a permit giving free parking not too far away (refundable deposit required). Luggage can be unloaded/loaded without a problem at the rear of the hotel.
We will return in early Spring and hopefully take advantage of the 3 nights for 2 offer.

We visit here to eat eat everytime we go to Keswick usually twice during the week. The waitresses are lovely and friendly, the food is excellent, and the early deal in the evening is great. Would always recommend this place to eat, a firm favourite of ours. They also had no problems seating us with 5 adults and a pushchair.

Although we didn't book accommodation at the George Hotel, we had heard about the 'legendary' Cow Pie that this Hotel serves in its downstairs Inn. We were not disappointed.

The atmosphere is wonderful, very busy, and very traditional in style. The service was speedy and friendly, the beer wonderful (Jennings Sneck-lifter) and the famous Cow Pie was in-itself, a reason to visit The George Hotel. All-in-all, heartily recommended after a day on the Lakeland Fells.

Stayed at the George for 2 nights with my partner. Upon arriving very helpful member of staff helped us get parked up at the rear. The rooms were large, comfortable and in-keeping with the hotel. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious and although we didn't have our evening meal at the hotel we did notice how happy diners looked! Wonderful stay and can't wait to go back.

My wife and I have just returned from three night bed and breakfast break ,and we had a great stay. The George is an old style pub with rooms and offers a nice warm welcome.So here we go, The Room ..we had room 7 which overlooks the street comfy twin beds en suite shower and loo, A dressing table & stool , chair,wardrobe and plenty of drawer space Tea/Coffee .all very nice .slight problem with street noise but nothing too bad.
Food, great breakfast, the full monty or continental, cereals roto toaster,this could set you up for the whole day.
Dinner, good old fashioned "Pub Grub" we tried the half Cow Pie, even the half is a monster stuffed full of tender beef and served with fresh veg..With so many places on offer we only dined on one evening but this is no slight on the George rather the other excellent place we found Negatives? the wine list was a bit expensive for what is after all a boozer.
Bar, lots of choice with 6 different beers from the wood all very good but again a bit pricey and the usual chain brands
On the whole I doubt there is anywhere better to stay in Keswick, Its bang in the middle of the town and even has parking at the back

Room Tip: If like myself your built for comfort rather than speed I would go for a twin room ,the double beds...
