The George affords a helpful welcome, with reception area/lounge/bar that manages to be both very 1990s and very cosy with varied seating and an open fire. Our room (No6) was reached via two (short but steep) flights of stairs and a length of corridor, then a short (but very steep) flight of steps within the room from bathroom to the main room. this was clean, comfortable and roomy, with comfortable twin beds, two lovely leather tub chairs, wicker "desk" chair, table/desk, minibar, chest of drawers and flat screen TV (limited channel choice). There is a radio alarm clock but poor reception. Free WiFi. All very cosy. The bathroom was bright, sparkling clean but small and utilitarian, rather than luxurious. Other reviewers have written of noise in rooms at the front of the hotel. Ours was at the front and directly faced Station Road. We were not at all disturbed. Complimentary water (Hildon from Hampshire, 200 miles away. Why not Buxton -15 miles away). The usual breakfast buffet, with bowls rather than catering packs of cereal etc. Superb cooked breakfast with excellent local ingredients but very slow service on one of two mornings (the one we were in a hurry). Proper leaf tea and good coffee. The restaurant was superb, two nights running.
Minor quibbles: "Communal" squirty bottles of toiletries, no bar soap, no face cloths. A shelf with a rail and "don't steal'em" clothes hangers and a brown curtain to hide them was a workable, but inelegant substitute for a wardrobe. Toast slices stacked together get soggy very quickly. At check-out our bill had acquired somebody else's bar lunch (wine, sandwiches and fries) but the mistake was smilingly put right.
