“Mixed bag”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

Looks very picturesque and lives upto that, very pleasant village and old fashioned charm. Our room was small but serviceable, big bed which was nice but left little space for anything else. We were in the courtyard, more like a motel but suited us. Service polite but distant, food surprisingly good, both dinner and breakfast but odd system left people queuing in the morning. Overall enjoyable stay, pub around the corner lively and excellent service but can't remember its name!

Atmosphere was exactly what anyone would want in such a historic coaching inn. The food was great, and the staff were friendly and more than happy to go the extra mile. Would definitely stay again, and recommend to all our friends.

Room Tip: we asked for a room with a four poster and got it, so we would definitely suggest you ask.

I stayed at the George recently for three nights. Everything about the place could be described as no better than average: my room, which was across the yard from the main building, was acceptable but rather shabby- clean towels were provided every day but the carpet was dirty; it was noisy outside, something which a double- glazed window would probably resolve; a kettle with coffee etc was provided but one morning there was no power! Breakfast was quite good but a "full English" on one day was different to the next! Service varied- on the two mornings the young lady waitress was on duty it was far more efficient and welcoming than the day she was not working. On the one evening when I had dinner the food was quite good- freshly cooked and tasty but the service was poor and very slow. Similarly, in the bar, the one girl on duty struggled to cope when it was busy. As others have said, this is not a modern, featureless hotel but a bit of attention and a couple more staff on duty in the public areas would make the George a far more attractive place to stay.

Just returned from a 2 week stay at the George, overall it’s not bad. It’s not a 5 star but it its clean and comfortable. The rooms are dated and could do with an update and some have been. The staff is excellent and very friendly; the food is above average; a visit to the pub is a must; good selection of beverages and what better way to meet the locals.

Returned visit, staying a couple of nights for ascot .
Shown to room 1 which had been slightly refurbished since our last visit .
This room is fairly basic and is another room we have stayed in this hotel which is very noisy, due to customers sitting outside .
Breakfast nice both mornings.
Staff not very friendly .
This is a comfortable , mid priced hotel with character that could be taken , I feel to a higher level fairly easily with just a few little tweeks.

Have stayed at the George a number of times now and always found it ok.
rooms are fine some are better than others but they all have character.
It is an old coaching inn and not a modern 5star hotel, but it is a lovely location in a nice little village.
Always found the staff friendly and enjoyed every stay

One of the oldest coaching inns in England offers, a cozy, friendly stay with good food. Not suitable for the disabled or very young children. Room # 4 had a great view over the high street and church. Great for a short stay. Hap-hazard service made me laugh - all added to a fun weekend. Appreciated the US king sized bed - what we are used to, and it was comfortable. Fight to get the best table in the mornings was amusing but then it was a very busy weekend. Dorchester on Thames is beautiful - take a walk around this lovely, English country village.

Room Tip: If you find stairs difficult, there are out side villas to choose from. Stress free parking was welc...
