We stayed here in November as part of a special week in Argyll. Our welcome at reception was less than whole hearted.
We stayed in 'the best room - the Merchants Room'. This room went beyond eccentric to positively bizarre and was both grubby and shabby. Overpowerd by a jacuzzi bath on a plinth immediately inside the room, the room was dressed in black and was drowned in wierd memorabilia. That said, with all the lights on it was still too dark to see into the wardrobe or other cupboards. One pillow had clearly been slept on and the rest of the room was in need of a complete clean. Even the hotel introduction binder was filthy.
The ensuite, by contrast was bright and clean (with the exception of a table which was thick with dust). Unfortunately the toilet was located in front of a window looking out onto someone's garden!
Dinner in the restaurant was unremarkable but we've never experienced orange juice like what was supplied at breakfast- watered down vileness.
It may be that some of the less expensive rooms were brighter, cleaner and more attractive - we have to hope so.

Room Tip: Check out all rooms on the website then enquire aboiut them personally prior to booking

Lunchtime was quiet, food was good but kids choices were uninspiring. Usual macaroni or sausages etc. They need to embrace the fact that kids are eating a variety of foods these days and the "something with chips" philosophy doesn't always appeal. On the upside, the portions were decent and my wife bought a rather charming piece of jewellery from the French jeweller inside the hotel, which she later adorned at my sisters wedding!

Room Tip: We didn't sleep there but this darned iPad won't let me delete the room bit!

I have lost count of the number of times I have eaten in the George Hotel and prior to my 2 visits in 2012 the food has always been excellent. I recently visited with a group of family members and we all ordered fish and chips. The food arrived quickly and can only be described as a bed of chips with a large piece of fish on top. It wasnt that the food was bad but it just felt like there was not thought whatsoever on presentation and the plate looked a bit bland and univiting. There were a few comments of where are the peas and why is this costing £9.25. Overall it just felt typically average. I dont want to be negative as I love this place but it is disappointing when you are left to feel that the standards and quality may be dropping. We were due to go back the following evening but decided against it.

This is a really different hotel in as much that the rooms are all different and we managed to get the "Merchant" room. It's an old old building so don't expect all the mod cons. But a great experience. The bar and restaurant offer a great selection of drinks and the food was of a high standard. It is family run and it is run well. Friendly and cosy. If you want something different from all the "chain" hotel then this is the one. The surrounding areas are stunning and Inveraray is a great base for traveling around. We highly recommend this hotel if you want one that is so full of character and quaintness. Would certainly return.

Room Tip: The Merchant room is very big.
