“Excellent accommodation, unsure on food”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

The rooms at the George are wonderful - spacious and modern. The service throughout the stay was first class too and I can't fault any of the staff. The lounge is very cosy with some nice comfy seating and a small library to browse. The one issue I had was the food. The evening menu is quite expensive and not to my taste (large plates, small portions and presented to such a degree that you don't want to spoil it). I'd much rather have a more basic, hearty choice. That being said, the breakfast was excellent.

An enjoyable stay but some aspects disappointing. Staff extremely friendly and helpful especially reception. Room and bathroom on ground floor good size and clean. However, noise from other rooms is intrusive and towels poor standard. Breakfast good except the sausage in cooked breakfast disappointing. However what really annoyed us was a 5 per cent service levy on the bill. Totally unacceptable - it means the price quoted is not what you pay

I spent 10 nights here and found the rooms and service to be excellent. My only observation was the menu which will not appeal to everyone. Superior rooms have the edge but rooms are large and clean and well appointed. The location is superb and the staff very friendly and helpful.

A very pleasant weekend. The food was good although the 5 mains available during our stay might not be to everyone's taste (2 x fish, 1 x rabbit, 1 x venison and 1 x vegetarian option at the time of writing). We stayed in room 3, with a four poster bed, located at the front of the hotel and above the bar. The room was in general quiet although we were disturbed several times on both nights/mornings by traffic (the hotel is located opposite a T junction) and deliveries to the hotel.

In other hotels with similar breaks the champagne and chocolates are provided as part of the package on both nights, not just arrival although we didn't feel we needed it and the hotel web site states on arrival only. The breakfast was excellent and available up to 11am giving you a bit of time for a lie-in or time to work up an appetite. We toyed with the idea of breakfast in our room but there wasn't anywhere to sensibly eat it (ie no table & chairs - not being a breakfast in bed fan). The staff were friendly & attentive in just the right amounts and well deserving of the 5% compulsory tip. We would stay again and recommend to others.

Fresh milk and a shower cap would be a welcome addition to the rooms, as would be some furniture to enjoy breakfast in the room. The shower was excellent and would benefit from a glass shield rather than plastic shower curtain.

Room Tip: We overheard reception advising a telephone customer that it wasn't possible to request a partic...

We stayed for one night last weekend. A very nice hotel, staff were very friendly & helpful especially Vicky on reception. We had read that the rooms on the ground floor at the front of the hotel were noisy, we stayed in room 21 & nothing of the sort it fact a very large room compared to our friends room at the back.A very good breakfast with a very good choice of quality produce. The only problem we encountered which was not the hotels fault but could done some thing about it was that the room above us there were some VERY noisy children using their room as a gym (I blame the parents for not having any contol, if they read this they will know who you are, rooms 13/14)

Overnight stay just for a little break from the kids.
Standard room, very nicely appointed and spacious (room 2), very comfortable bed with excellent pillows and duvet.
Bathroom clean and modern with a shower that could be used for crowd suppression!
Very peaceful and relaxing.
Food smells fantastic, but a bit pricey for my pocket (£30 for 2 courses).
Not a problem as you have the choice of a fantastic Indian restaurant a very short walk up the road called Maazi.
The hotel is top end price wise at £129, to me £89 would have been its price point, but it's obviously doing very well as it is!
My only reason for not 5 out of 5 stars is the obligatory up front tip! Adding 5%! I'm not against tipping, and very rarely haven't, but tips are given for good service-not used by the management to top up wages.
We're also meant to trust that these tips are actually distributed?
The staff have been very good-nice welcome and very efficient booking in.
Plenty of parking space and very easy to find - Hathersage is tiny!
Not much in the way of shops, couple of impressive looking outdoor shops though.
Pub at top of village, The Scotsmans Pack is excellent, offering a good choice of beers, and a very impressive menu, we were there on a Friday night and enjoyed a live band and a very welcoming atmosphere, well worth a visit.
