Reviewed March 14, 2014

Decent hotel and good value on arrival I was greeted by the owner who offered me an upgraded room which was nice. Run separately from the hotel but on the premises there is a nice Italian restaurant should you require an evening meal which again was very nice and reasonably priced.

I stayed one night at The George Hotel in Battle and found it welcoming and comfortable.The breakfast was very good. All in all it was excellent value for the price paid and I would have no hesitation in staying there again or recommending it to others for a one night stopover.

We stayed here one Saturday night in February. The hotel itself is very basic but the rooms are spotlessly clean complete with clean and comfortable bedding. The bathroom was clean and offered a hot bath or shower. The gentleman looking after us was very welcoming and even helped to carry our bags up an extremely large spiral staircase to our room.
Ironically, the hotel itself backs onto a restaurant that I myself have not enjoyed in the past but I can see the advantage of eating here if you would rather not go out. We ourselves arrived late and left early so didn't partake of any meals or breakfast.
Excellent value for money, friendly hotelier & very welcoming. Free car parking at the rear which is very helpful in this area. We would stay again if passing through.

Stayed here for one night on route to somewhere else. Good value for money. The room we stayed in was quite basic which really wasn't a problem but the beds and bedding very comfy and clean. There is an Italian Restaurant in this hotel which is very handy if you don't want to go far to eat.

Me & my husband stayed here for 1 night saturday 22nd Feb. We only paid £55 room only through Late.rooms. We thought this was good value for money. There is free parking. We were served at reception by a very helpful gentleman. Our room was large, clean, badic but adequate. The bathroom was large & newly decorated. Good shower with shower gel & shampoo. Room lovely & warm with new wall mounted flat screen 32 inch tv with lots of channels. Tea & coffee etc, large window looking out to High Street. Location of hotel is excellent, lots of eateries, shops & 5 minutes walk from the beautiful Abbey.

We booked into the George for a Sunday night along with some other family members. The website paints a fairly good picture of a nice 3* hotel in the center of town.
Whilst it is in the middle of Battle (couldnt get much of a better location) if is far from 'nice' and left me questioning where its 3 star rating came from. I think at a push 2 stars would be as far as I would go!
The reason for this:
The hotel is in a poor state, the 'wet floor' sign in the lobby was due to the leak in the ceiling, not the cleaner. The deserted reception offered no support at any point. The common areas are in a poor state of repair, with paint flaking, mold on the walls and cracks in the stair case.
The room was freezing, despite the radiator being on full. The bed had only one pillow, and there was only set of towels (despite it being a double room and there was two of us). The windows were in a poor state of repair having been bodged to stop the leaks. The bathroom was dated, missing wallpaper and the shower was mounted about 2 foot from the bath, so you had to sit in the bath to have a shower.
Breakfast was fine, budget ingredients at every level but it was cooked to order. The staff were helpful at breakfast - this was the only interaction with anyone we had.

In all, if you need a bed for a night, its in a good location but don't expect service, warmth or comfort.
If you book a romantic weekend away or family trip, based on the website images, you will be bitterly disappointed.

The hotel needs some major investment, customer service training and a bit of energy putting to it - it could be lovely.

Room Tip: Don't take an 'attic room'

I had the most comfort,able two nights sleep. The bed and pillows were really lovely and comfy. The room was very reasonably priced too. I had originally booked a twin room, but on our arrival the friendly gentleman that helped us with our bags decided he would upgrade us to a nicer room. I found the building interesting and charming, especially the crooked staircase.Location perfect and off street parking a bonus. We were very comfortable.

The only downside was that the new headboards were made from a vinyl or plastic that gave off an unpleasant aroma, and we were unable to open the windows for fresh air.
Other than that it was great and would recommend it as a reasonably priced comfortable room.
