After reading the above review I felt compelled to pass on my own experience at the George hotel. This is my fourth visit so you may gather I'm something of a fan of the area and the hotel itself. I am not a habitual reviewer, although the course of my work has seen me in many hotels over the years. Within the George you will find very helpful and courteous staff, I make it my place to repay people with the same level of respect I receive from them, I was told to simply request any service or help on my first visit, and each consecutive time, we were allowed to use the indoor standing for a company meeting (very relaxing) we had an awards day where the chef and staff took care of everything. Food was great, entertainment was excellent and we have booked the George for our next appraisal meeting.
The rooms are comfy, very clean and whilst it's not my own bed I slept without incident. The accommodation is placed far enough away from the bar that no or very little revelry is heard. You are made very welcome by the local patrons if you choose to use the entertainment facility (a huge plus not often seen in small villages!) and I just love the olde worldly character of the building.
I hope iv managed to express the non sterile hands on approach found at the George, if like me you like to spend your free time socially, you will visit again.
