The George Inn
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Crewkerne
Reviewed September 20, 2010

On the plus side, the breakfast is excellent.
Well that's the positives out of the way!
The whole accommodation area was shabby, with a chest freezer greeting you in he entrance lobby.
Garish nylon carpets and woodchip wallpaper abound, it reminded me of staying over with elderly relatives in the 1970's, plus it smelled somewhat like a care home (to the extent that we bought incense sticks to overcome the aroma!).
Our double room was so small that there was nowhere to put a suitcase, whilst the ensuite had to have a sliding door, which led into a shower/WC room the width of the shower cubicle (it must have been a wardrobe in a former life). The shower was feeble to say the least, whilst when the WC was flushed there was an overpowering smell of drains.
I don't know what people get up to in Somerset, but the sign above the toilet requesting that nappies/tampons/condoms etc. must not be flushed down the pan included of all things nuts and bolts!!!!!!
Our daughter was in a single room that was no better in size or quality than ours.
To add insult to injury, proudly displayed outside were signs showing that the hotel is rated 3* by the AA and that it offers "luxurious en-suite accommodation".
It would have been a joke, but for the fact that we had paid £330 up front for three nights!

I agree with the previous contributor...it is somewhere to sleep....but...the problem with this hotel is that the heating goes off at night. This may not be a problem in August but it is December 23rd. We stayed in room 6 and it wasn't hot with the heating on full. When it went off at night...we froze..I was surprised there wasn't ice on the inside of the window..!! Plus point was an excellent fresh breakfast in a very warm restaurant. Actually, I think I would rather have slept in a chair in the restaurant!

In short...ok as a bed in summer...but never again in winter.

This is the latest of several stays at the George several times when visiting friends in Crewkerne. Crewkerne itself is a great little market town with some interesting shops and a good base for seeing the surrounding area. The prices here are usually much less than on the coast.
The George is right in the centre of town.
On the plus side it's clean, the beds are comfortable, and the breakfast is well cooked. The evening menu is reputed to be good as well.
On the minus side; the service is patchy and in the rooms I've seen it's dated, woodchip wallpaper, nylon carpets, thin walls, noisy plumbing and s-l-o-w showers.
I basically sleep and eat breakfast there and it's fine for a couple of days.
