The George Hotel
Ranked #6 of 9 Hotels in Huntingdon
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Very helpful and friendly staff - every one we encountered - but they could do with more of them. On arrival at 5pm we had the (only) barman leave his post to man reception then help us to unlock our door on the second floor. We ate in the hotel on the second (of two nights). Good basic bar food served to our table in reasonable time despite also catering for a wedding reception.. The constraints of an old building explained the rooms and furnishing but a coat of paint outside would do a lot to improve the overall appeal of this old coaching house in the town centre.

Stayed here for a few days a family of two adults and two children before moving into our new house this hotel was picked for us so didn't know what to expect other than reading the reviews on here. We pulled into the car park and the building looked lovely very old and quaint. Went to reception and staff were friendly even telling us about free wi fi we went up to our room the inside the building in the bedroom area was abit shabby and needed doing, floorboards were creaking underfoot but what do you expect from a really old building. Our bedroom was big but shabby decor there was a hole in the bathroom door covered by a board but it was nice and clean and was tidied everyday by the maid. We ate most meals there breakfast and evening and was good value for money if you stayed at the hotel you got free parking overall the staff where really friendly and wanting to help nice and clean but decor shabby location in the middle of town centre so perfect.

Thank you for your kind words about your recent visit to the George. I am glad to hear that you found all the staff so friendly and helpful. I do apoloigse that you found your bathroom door in such a state of disrepair, it has since been completely replaced and is back to our usual standards. We hope to welcome you again soon now you are a local.

Having been to the George in the evening for a meal, it seemed a good idea to go there for lunch as the office is only a short walk away. The hotel was busy with a function which had a knock on effect to the speediness of delivery from the kitchen. To the bar staff's credit they advised everyone that there was a considerable wait for food. We did order and when the food came it was very good, as we have always found at this hotel. I just wonder why, if they knew they had a large group booking, they didn't take cautionary action and increase the staff for that occasion. Will definitely be back but will probably phone in advance to check if going at lunchtime.....or chat the boss up for a two hour lunchbreak!

Hastily arranged, last minute booking so we could attend a funeral on our way home from holiday, the George was selected for its location. However we could not have been made more welcome. The staff were all friendly and efficient, the room spacious and clean and the food excellent - fantastic breakfast and delicious evening meals. Thank you.

Popped in for a lunchtime meal and what an excellent meal. We had the two meals for a tenner and they were both excellent value. I had the fish and chips which was wonderful and my wife had the Paela which was very good. Excellent value in wonderful surroundings. Strongly recommended.

Stayed here for a work-related meeting. Had no problems. The George is a pleasant comfortable place to stay. The food (Fish and Chips) was lovely. I will stay here again without hesitation. The staff are very friendly.
