Another fantastic Peel Hotel. Having stayed at this Groups hotel in Bournemouth, we thought we would book for a long weekend in Oxford. Actually, the hotel is in Wallingford, outside Oxford, but the stay was well worthwhile. With ample parking, it was easy to get to, notwithstanding road closures and road works (not their fault at all). The hotel is lovely. It is oozing character, and has it's own charm mixed in. The modern decoration is sympathetic to the property and I was enthralled. The bedrooms were very comfortable, the only omission may be the lack of a fridge, but that's a personal thing. The courtyard is lovely and we did have good weather s it was a lovely meeting place. The bar was buzzing on the Saturday night, but we still found room to sit down and chat. Conversly, it was quite quiet on the Sunday evening. The food was good, with a good choice on the menu.
Although we went to the County to specifically visit Oxford, we found Wallingford to be a charming town, with lovely little shops and an antique centre on the doorstep. Behind the Hotel, literally a two minute walk from the car park, is the old Castle and gardens - well worth a visit. It was only a five minute stroll to the bus stop for a direct link into Oxford, where we were dropped on the corner of the main street with access to shops and Trinity College. The bus journey did take a while, but I'm sure that was only due to the road closures that weekend - just our luck!
The one thing that stood out about The George Hotel was the efficience of the staff. The Receptionist was lovely and couldn't do enough for us and the two girls who served n the dining room and bar were exceptional. When a member of staff tells you that she loves her job and loves being at the hotel, you know you're at the right place.
