“A relaxing break.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

We stayed on one of the special £120 b&b nights which is very good value. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The building is amazing and the Hotel makes you feel relaxed straight away.
Our room was pretty cold on arrival but we dumped our bags and headed to the Kings Head opposite where they had a roaring fire and the rugby match on.
The bed was very comfy and we had a great nights sleep. Morning tea is extra but I guess you could take your own travel kettle and tea etc.
However breakfast was delicious, scrambled egg & smoked salmon, hubby had a full english. It filled us up for the whole day until our evening meal.
Its nice that you don't have to rush to check out the next day, 11am I think.
We took the car this time and parking is in the long stay a short walk away, though there is a short stay car park next to the Hotel. Traffic wardens definitely operate in the area so its not worth the risk.

Room Tip: We always like a sea view room, its therapeutic and mesmerising.

We lived on the IOW for many years and had no reason to stay here until now. We booked a last minute night away so see friends and were not disappointed.
As a late deal we paid £99 for two for one night B & B and had intended to book dinner. However the veggie option was carrot risotto - which we did not fancy. So we walked to the Red Lion at Freshwater and had a lovely meal.
Our room was very clean, comfortable and had a lovely a sew-view, we had booked a standard room and that is what we got on the top floor even though the hotel was very empty. Nice robes, towels and toiletries. We arrived around 3pm and asked for some tea & cake, but could not believe that there was nothing for guests to ear. We were told that lunch had ended at 2.30 and dinner was from 7pm I think - I did say we did not want a full afternoon tea, but tea & scone or a toasted tea cake would be fine - but there was nothing available other than a tea or coffee. This shocked me for a hotel of this caliber as surely many people arrive around this time on a Friday afternoon.
Our breakfast the next morning was lovely, helpful staff, lovely view and all in all a very nice place to stay – would certainly stay again – but whether its worth £200 - 300+ a night is another matter

Room Tip: Go for a sea view

I spent a lovely weekend at Yarmouth in the The George.

Good: I can not fault the B&B service we received: Great location for Yarmouth and exploring the I.O.W., superb breakfast over looking the sea and bed room finished to a very high standard.The staff were all very friendly.

Bad: I decided to splash out and have dinner at the hotel. Although the dining area is beautiful, unfortunately, for me this meal let the hotel down. Let me explain.

Before our meal we thought we would have pre dinner drinks. The seating next to the bar is lovely but very small. I found the other lounge a bit scruffy and cold. Where are the cocktails? Room information states cocktails are served in the bar, yet when asked about cocktails we were told they did not do them! The ontap beer was also warm. We felt disappointed with our pre-meal drinks and both said we should have gone to the pub.

Sample menus: The website shows sample menus that look incredible however the prices on these are far cheaper than in the restaurant ( e.g.the cheapest meal is under £14 when we were there the cheapest was £17).

The vegetarian evening menu (shown on the website) is not currently available, which means vegetarians only get one (uninspiring) choice per course. I paid almost 20 pounds for a main course which was very bland.Rice with lumps of carrot does not match the standard of the rest of my experience at this hotel. I suggest the chief be more adventurous when planning meat free options as I heared the other choices were lovely. Also, our selection of breads, as stated in the menu never came.My tomato and basil salad was sadly mainly lettuce and I had to ask for dressing. I felt disappointed with this meal as it cost me over £70.

Overall, a lovely hotel with beautiful rooms. I would recommend this hotel (already have) but thought it would not be a balanced truthful review without mentioning my dinning experience.

As we were visiting the area we decided to stop for lunch at The George. We had a lovely
lunch with very attentive staff that saw we wanted for nothing. We thought the menu was very good . The presentation and every course we ordered was just wonderful . We really enjoyed our lucky find. The views from the restaurant overlooking the solent were beautiful only bettered by sitting outside which unfortunately was not possible as the weather was very cold and wet.

Just returned from 2 nights at The George, Yarmouth. We were blessed with the weather, which meant that the view from the breakfast table was stunning. (Sadly we didn't get the upgrade to a sea view that somebody else spoke of, but nevertheless a lovely and large room with the most comfortable bed - I meant to ask where the beds come from so that I can try and buy the same, our sleep was that good!). Breakfasts were tasty, dinner was superb, the staff were friendly and professional, and the surroundings were lovely. It's a real touch of class on my favourite place on earth (IOW), and Yarmouth at this time of year, although small, has some lovely pubs. The blazing fire in the bar of The George brings a warm glow to my imagination when now stuck back in an office in London ... recommend this break to all!

Room Tip: We had Room 1 - which may have been a disabled room because of the size of room and door, and the se...

in our travels around the world..george and i have met many great stays but i recommend people try out this quaint little hotel and GEORGE the Bartender..he is what makes traveling a soothing emotional memory..great service, works hard and how he treated his customers with NO attitude. Myself and George LOVED his spirit and care and knowledge in traveling the World. Spend time with this bartender everyone and you will see a smiling,outgoing and caring young man. Thank you George and tolerating our stories. Hotels cannot afford to lose people like him..the Staff is so important. William and George..Americans

Room Tip: spend time in the beautiful Bar and say hello to George from the Americans

A short ferry trip away, as a special treat, booked for one night at The George. Did not fail in any respect. Offered upgraded room, with wonderful room overlooking the Solent. An excellent dinner and very attentive staff. The most comfortable bed with pillows to die for. Would be very happy to return.
