We have just got back from a delightful stay at the George. We booked a deluxe room with a travel cot. We were welcomed by friendly staff and directed to our room on the first floor. The room was lovely and warm and to our surprise, there was a bottle of wine and 2 glasses left for us. What a...

The food and drink was fantastic. The service was superb,the place very tidy. Shame the rooms are all a bit dated and all need a little TLC to get good again. I.e. new mattresses, plugs attached to sinks, showers that close properly,toilets that fill correctly and speedily. Small things to fix and be a perfect little hotel.

My wife and i really enjoyed our stay here. Really nice quaint hotel. Nice size room and ensuite, really clean and tidy hotel. In a lovely location. The restaurant overlooking the river is really nice. Food was excellent, but at £6.20 a glass, the wine was expensive. The bar area is great, with an open fire. Very friendly helpful staff,...

The hotel itself is beautiful, fairly priced and easily accessible to most places. Staff are helpful and friendly and rooms are clean, spacious and comfy. However when we arrived we were told we were already checked in and they are fully booked to then wait for someone else to come and sort the issue. Someone was checked into our room...

We really loved this hotel. The room was clean and cosy with beautiful views over the river. An evening meal was included in the deal which was very nice and good quality even for the fussy husband. All staff were very friendly. Would definitely recommend and will return soon.

Lovely quiet location in great surroundings, plenty of parking, room set off from the pub so no noise. Check in very easy & staff helpful. Room itself was very pleasant, heating wasn't on so a tad chilly when first in, but the radiator worked fine so wasn't too much of an issue. All the usual facilities you expect from a...
