Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Absolutely fabulous stay at The George! Perfectly situated to explore the Cotswolds and all of the staff were so attentive and lovely. Special shoutout to Jordan Williams and Kieran who were so friendly and made it feel like a home from home. Breakfast was great too. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and would definitely stay again :)

Just back from a lovely overnight stay here! The place has such a nice vibe, staff are lovely, the food is so nice we had breakfast, lunch and dinner here. Rooms can get quite warm but there are fans provided. Would definitely go back, can't recommend it enough.

Four chaps having breakfast every month around Shipston. So, lots of chat from us and looking for efficient service and delicious food in pleasant surroundings. The George was excellent on all counts. Very attentive service from the only waiter on duly when we first arrived. Very soon ordered. Teas and coffee flowed, followed by four delicious full-English Breakfasts. Followed by more coffees. Not hurried. Altogether a delight. Good value - on average £16 per person plus service charge which we were delighted to pay. Would we go back? Most certainly. Would we recommend? We do.

We had the best experience here - a huge thank you to the whole team! My whole family (16 people) came here for breakfast as a pitstop on a road trip down south, but unfortunately there was a power cut in the whole village! Half of our party were children who were hungry so the staff went completely and massively out of their way to serve up anything they could - they rustled up a fresh fruit platter, cereals, bread and prosciutto which was lovely - all on a candlelit table! It wasn't the breakfast we had hoped for - it was a million times better! Thank you to the whole team for making it such a wonderful experience! A breakfast to remember that the kids will talk about in years to come!

Great Pub/hotel, we stayed a night in March, room was good, eat in the Resturant in the evening and again the food was superb. Breakfast also. If you are planning to visit a local attraction by taxi, you MUST book the taxi well in advance, you will not get one on the same day, local or even out of town taxi’s. We tried for hours.

Stayed for 3 nights. First impressions very good. Very comfortable to sit and have a drink. The car park is small with no disabled spaces. There are car parks close by though. We got a space every night but it would be difficult in the summer. No ground floor rooms or lift but we managed (husband mobility issues) with a room on the first floor. The room was spotlessly clean, could do with a comfortable chair and more sockets. Very nice toiletries. Uneven floors and draughty windows but only what you’d expect given the age of the building. The staff throughout were excellent, very helpful and quick service. The main fault was the food. At breakfast there’s a limited choice on the cold buffet, no fish on the menu. The full English was a really good option - good quality ingredients and plenty of it - however each morning it was stone cold on a cold plate. The first night we ate fish and chips. Excellent. Best we’ve had recently, good ingredients, well cooked and hot. Ate elsewhere second night. Sunday we both had lamb roast. Again the ingredients were good quality and plentiful but again both were stone cold on cold plates. Spoilt it for us. Told them about this on the last morning and were basically told off for not telling them sooner. We don’t like to make a fuss and we don’t send food back unless it’s inedible. He said he’d tell the kitchen. Went in there but exited by a different door and didn’t come back to us. Whilst we could have said sooner they must surely know they’re sending out cold food. Shame it would have been a 5 star review otherwise.

Hi Janet F thank you for taking the time to leave us your honest feedback. Again we are sorry you couldn't bring this up sooner so we could have rectified your issues, and like you said we would have achieved the 5 star review, if we came across upset that you didn't tell us of the problem till the last day of your stay that's only because we hate giving bad service or food and would have love you to have left you feeling more satisfied. We hope to see you here again soon. The George Team

We had a family trip (6 rooms), staying for 2 nights at The George Townhouse at the beginning of March 2024. Hotel is approximately 20 minutes to Stratford upon Avon. All the rooms were decorated nicely, clean and the most comfy beds ever. Bathrooms were clean. Shower was great with nice toiletries and proper sized towels. Breakfast in the hotel was really tasty – small buffet selection and hot food to order. Dinner similarly was delicious and generous portions. Good selection of drinks. Service was really friendly from all team members but a special shout-out must go to Jordan Williams. Nothing was too much trouble, he made sure that we all had everything we wanted and made everyone feel really welcome. The only thing that would have made our stay even better would be to have some biscuits in the room to go with the tea and coffee. I definitely recommend this hotel, both for eating at and for staying and hope we get to go back one day.

Comfy bed, shower was a bit on the small side, room was nicely decorated but the radiators seemed to be controlled centrally so we did get a bit hot on occasion but it was no bother as we opened the windows. We had our dog with us and he was made welcome which I appreciated. There is a car park at the back and we managed to get a space but I would imagine it is not always the case when it's the height of season

We thought it was a lovely place, nicely decorated. We were disappointed with our room as it was much smaller than we expected. It was very clean, with a nice Bathroom. The restaurant was nice, staff were clearly up against it, especially at breakfast time. Rushing from serving drinks at the bar for walk ins, to waiting on tables for residents.
