“Wonderful hosts, comfy bed and gerat conversation”
Reviewed April 25, 2011

We had not planned to stop in Roanoke but glad we did. The reservation was made the day before and Jim could not have been anymore helpful with the process. We were concerned about noise, there was none, very quite area yet handy to the city. We walked to a great local restaurant that was reasonably priced, a place where the 'locals' go. The bed was so comfy! Evening conversation with other guests was pleasant. Lynn and Jim were gracious but not over bearing.
BTW, we are retired innkeepers who have owned two inns in Maine (Kennebunkport).

We were merely passing through and just looking for a place to crash for the night before continuing on our way - what a pleasant surprise! I wish we could have delayed our trip just to stay another day in Roanoke with Jim and Lynn. They are one of the sweetest couples we have ever met and had a gorgeous inn! The rooms were well decorated and the beds were extraordinarily comfortable. When we arrived, we were warmly greeted and given a map of the town and some suggestions for local eateries. The place we went to, Blue 5, had great food and a live band. The following morning, Lynn made one of the best breakfasts I have ever had in my life. Absolutely amazing! Also, be sure to ask her about her art "hobby". She is very humble about her gift, but she is an incredible artist (as well as cook!) and has her own private studio on the third floor. Sometimes people staying will even buy some of her artwork. There is a sitting area in both the front and the back of the house for enjoying coffee, tea, or a good book.

We only hope that our paths bring us back to Roanoke, Virginia in the future. If we do, we will certainly be staying with Jim and Lynn!

Jim and Lynn were extremely helpful when we found ourselves driving through a storm and unable to get home that night. Their welcome could not have been warmer when we arrived on their doorstep, and we were instantly at home. Our room was most charmingly appointed, and after freshening up we joined our hosts for an evening of pleasant conversation. Their other guests were out at a concert, and arrived back only after we had excused ourselves for the most wonderful night's sleep between crisp, spotless sheets.

Breakfast was truly a work of culinary art, and a great start to anyone's day. I was sorry to leave, and will go back next time (soon, I hope) for a longer break and a chance to enjoy Roanoke and its surroundings.

One final note: the King George has chosen not to apply for a liquor license, but you are most welcome to bring and consume your own drinks. The Hunts are a charming couple, and will make you feel welcome in their home. Be careful - you WILL want to go back!

King George Inn is a wonderful place to stay in a wonderful town! The innkeepers are very kind and friendly, the rooms are decorated well and not overdone, and the breakfast was incredible. I would stay there again any day!

Two of us stayed 2 nights; the accommodations were beautiful & charming. Lynn & Jim Hunt, the proprietors, couldn't have been nicer, friendlier, or more thoughtful. The room we had was spacious & lovely. We peeked into the other 3 rooms that are on offer & found them to be equally wonderful; each has a private bath. The inn has only been open for 8 months & the house, circa 1900, was renovated within the last 2 years. Everything is clean; the bathrooms are new and the furnishings in the house compliment the era in which it was built. There is a sitting room on the 2nd floor that is comfortable & sunny -- a perfect spot for reading, talking, or contemplation. The separate dining room has a big enough table for 6. The breakfasts each day were delicious: Eggs Benedict one morning & waffles the next. We were absolutely pleased with the entire experience & hope to stay there again when we visit Roanoke in the future.

We stayed for only one night at the King George but were greeted like royalty upon our arrival. Jim and Lynn welcome us with open arms (there were four of us - two couples), telling us the history of the Inn and enjoying a glass of wine (or two) and a cheese tray. They helped us decide where to dine - and pointed us to a wonderful local restaurant in walking distance - even providing flashlights.

The rooms were beautiful, well appointed, high ceilings, and appropriate decor - not too much, not too frilly, and very comfortable. The bathrooms had lovely tilework throughout and the hard wood floors were polished to a high shine.

The next morning we scheduled breakfast and had a terrific meal with homemade pastry, pancakes, thick bacon, hot coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice.

This is a great place for a girls getaway or a romantic night. We'll definitely be back!

Lynn and Jim were wonderful hosts and their inn was the perfect setting for our group. We were in town for downtown events related to our Virginia Tech conference; the Inn is walking distance to downtown, and it even has a lovely upper level living room type space for guests to gather. Lynn and Jim prepared great breakfasts, there is free wi-fi - all in a beautiful, spacious setting.
