Reviewed May 18, 2013

Booked a midweek 2 night stay here with my partner. The room was 1st class, nice and specious, decorated to a high standard with good quality furnishings and the bed was 'extremely' comfy. Also overlooking the pretty peaceful grounds and river. Thank you for making our first stay a memorable one. We will definitely be back.

We had a last minute value deal of £39 so weren't expecting much.

We loved: the pub atmosphere; size of the bedroom and the charm of the place.

We didn't like: the poor mattress (you had to stay motionless or risk disrupting your partner); the fact the curtains weren't lined (so the bright sunshine streamed in at 5am!); nor the fact breakfast was a set £10 meaning you'd pay that just for an orange juice. We got breakfast elsewhere.

The staff were friendly though.

Room Tip: Don't pick 215 during the summer months or one along that stretch if you don't want the sun...

Thank you for your feedback and I am glad you enjoyed the atmosphere and the service. Please be assured that we are currently up-dating mattresses in certain rooms so thank you for bringing this to our attention. With regards to our breakfast, the £10 price is inclusive of our full breakfast buffet and includes cereals, fruit, yogurts, toast, Danish pastries, plus a ‘cooked to order’ full English breakfast or other hot dish available on our menu, plus a plentiful supply of tea, coffee and juices. Our breakfast guests certainly never leave hungry! We do hope to welcome you back soon.

Kind Regards

Had a smashing stay at this lovely hotel. The staff were very attentive, the food was very good and reasonably priced. It's in a lovely location with things to do nearby and walks alongside the river and roman fort. We stayed for two nights and would thoroughly recommend this for a short break. Very comfortable.

Stayed there last night as a single traveller, put in a really spacious room, with lots of tea, coffee, biscuits, hot chocolate, water and free wifi. It was clean, warm, lovely bathroom.

I would definately come back with my young family.

An excellent and very tasty lunch and really good value for money. Service was friendly and efficient. We will return. Just one thing I must mention is that your very nice barman and the hotel management should make sure his uniform is pristine. Trousers and waistcoat?

Stayed at The George for the second time, beautiful location right on the river; great location for walks, excellent service and very friendly and helpful staff. The room was very clean and a good size with great en suite facilities. Food was excellent, would definitely recommend!

We enjoyed our third stay here in April. To date, we have used it as a stop-over, en route to Perthshire. That said, it would be great for a longer stay - for exploring the North Yorks and Durham Dales. In itself, the hotel has a great setting. We have always had lovely rooms and delicious evening meals & breakfasts. We will return .....
