Stayed at the George with my girlfriend for the weekend. Hotel is a very quaint old building with plenty of character mixed with a more modern extension of additional rooms.
We stayed in the more modern half of the building on the third floor. Rooms were good size, clean, good selection of toiletries and very pleasant cleaners. For a 3 star hotel we would have given it 10 out of 10 if not let down slightly by a very poor powered shower which is probably due to dated plumbing and the fact we were on the top floor. That aside we were pleasantly pleased with the room.
We had an inclusive deal for accommodation, breakfast and a 3 course meal each day. Breakfast was served to order which we had the full English. We liked the food, there was a great selection of fruit, cereals, yoghurts etc to accompany the order which also included continental and omelet breakfasts.
For the evening meals there was a good selection of courses which changed each night. We would like to give some constructive criticism on the quality of food. We believe it was good value for the money, but would have to say it was below par for what you would expect to get from a pub. That said the service was excellent and staff very friendly.
The hotel also has a bar which we thought was excellent. Nice old school traditional tavern with a cosy feel. There are 4 -5 other pubs with 5 mins walk. We found the price of drinks in the George were very reasonable and if they are more expensive than the other pubs in the area as mentioned in a previous review I can't say I noticed. A round on the south coast where we are from costs £7.50 to £8 for a pint and vodka and lemonade, so it was brilliant to only have to pay £6.80 :). I'd say its cheap.
We visited oxford for the day and used the park and ride system which was great value for money and hassle free. We visited a few museums, and did a bit of shopping. There was plenty to see and do, for all ages!
All in all, loved the place. Big thanks to all staff especially Luke and Sarah. We would stay again :-)
