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.

The George in South Molton is a really delightful hotel with lovely staff and clean, comfortable rooms. It feels as though it has just been refurbished as everything feels spic and span. The breakfast was delicious, and our stay was reasonably priced.

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed at The George over Easter weekend for 4 nights and had the most lovely stay. The rooms were really nicely decorated and presented and the beds in the two rooms we had were extremely comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, the bar and tea area was really welcoming and relaxing with a mix of chairs tables and sofas/sofa chairs. Afternoon tea (or drinks) with various home made cakes available. The owner, Mark, was extremely helpful and nothing was ever too much trouble. We also had our pet retriever with us, he was also very welcomed with guests and staff all paying him a lot of attention. All in all a wonderful stay and a really relaxing long weekend. Highly recommend.

We stayed here for a night in March and it was a fantastic stay. The rooms are well proportioned, spotlessly clean and decorated very nicely and there wasn’t a mark anywhere on anything. We were so impressed. Breakfast was lovely and we’d both recommend staying here to anyone.

This hotel is a fantastic place to stay, great value, spotlessly clean, and with a comfortable bed. The breakfast was great quality and cooked to order, the bar was well stocked with a great selection of drinks and the car park free. Thanks for making our brief stay a good experience.

I had booked a single room here so was very pleased upon my arrival to be upgraded to a double with no extra charge. The room was nicely decorated and quiet. The staff were all friendly and helpful, and I had lovely breakfasts with fresh ingredients. There were several guests there, so for a small town in Devon in February, I thought The George was doing well, and deservedly so. I felt completely comfortable as a woman staying on her own, so would definitely recommend this hotel.

We came in for breakfast on New Year’s Eve. We ordered eggs Benedict ,it was incredible, the poached eggs were cooked to perfection. Hands down best value for money in South Molton. 10/10 recommend to everyone. Will definitely be returning to try out the rest of the menu, expected it will be as top quality as this morning.

Lovely country Georgian market town with a square and a pannier market. This pub is very central in town and we received a friendly welcome. Nice bar, good coffee and cake and a good arrangement of collecting a take away from across the road and eating it in the dining room. Very comfy spacious bedroom with high ceiling overlooking the square. Would definitely stay again.

We were visiting family and stayed in The George, lovely atmosphere, room was stunning and warm and the bed was so cosy and comfortable, we had to ask for the supplier of the bedding! Breakfast was really good, fresh, well presented and piping hot. We will be back thank you
