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.

Gorgeous setting, didn’t feel rushed, food portions are huge so prepare yourself 😆. I couldn’t manage to eat all my pie, and none of us needed a dessert - we only had mains.

We were gifted a voucher for a 2 night stay, so booked this hotel with no expectations of how it may be. We'd read a lot of reviews, so were fairly confident. We wanted a quiet, restful, weekend! On arrival, we were met, and shown...to our room by the friendly owners. We had room 1702, and it was beautiful. Big bay window out to the town square, very comfortable double bed, and a nice bathroom with shower and toilet. The room was always at a good temperature, and if it got too warm, opening the sash windows was easy. Kirton is such a lovely little town, that it wasn't an issue to have the windows open, as traffic is virtually non-existent! We booked a table for the evening, and I can tell you that the food was spectacular. Easily the best meal out that we've had in a long time. 3 courses with wine was very good value. My wife had the Bloody Mary Crayfish starter, and I had the Trio of Mushrooms on Sour Bread. We then moved on to the Wild Boar Lasagna, and the Seafood Linguine. My wife finished with the Eton Mess, whilst i treated myself to a double Jura! The food was exceptional. If i could go back and eat it again... This was a wonderful 2 night stay. We would highly recommend staying, and/or eating here. Very nice atmosphere in the restaurant. We're now hoping that we get the same present again....and may be back next February!!More

What wife and I booked a table for the 20% off deal, on arrival we were made welcome and given a choice of tables. We have eaten at the George before and it was particularly good. I ordered the pepper steak pie which I had...with a medley of vey and new potatoes in garlic butter. My wife ordered catch of the day which was haddock, this came with mushy peas chips and tartar sauce. The food and plates were hot, a delightful meal good quality and well made. The service and food were first class, friendly atmosphere and pleasant surroundings. A very well done to all the staff, we can’t Waite to go back. Worth a visit.More

We along with quite a few others booked this hotel in January for a one night stay in March , a bit odd you may think why the review now in February , well here's the thing , last week [ end of January ]...we had a n message off one of our friends that were also booked in , informing him that their room was unavailable on that night so I rang to be told the same thing , no explanation why just an apology for the inconvenience. The hotel was fully booked by our party of friends that were due to attend a nearby function and a lot of them have still not received confirmation that the rooms have been cancelled, this is a very unprofessional why of treating and dealing with customers some of which were due to travel hundreds of miles to get there, the very least they should do is make sure everyone is informed and a reasonable reason why. Book with caution .More

Visited for Sunday Lunch, the place was chilly and we ate in our coats it was 15 degrees inside rising to 17 when we left. The food was very nice and we all enjoyed it. The Customer service & attitude of some staff not so...desirable. Couldn't wait for you to leave once they had your money.More

We live miles away but this place was in between us and friends and looked nice with good reviews. The service is first class with nothing to much for the staff, greeted nicely and attentive. The food was incredible, so amazing, tasty, great ingredients cooked...or perfection with a lot of thought and love. It’s so hard to find somewhere that keeps it simple but delivers on quality in this day and age, but this place does it all, well done The George.More

The food was fantastic and everyone was served at the same time even though all the selections were individual. The staff were excellent and attentive.

Hi we managed to check in more or less as we arrived but think it will depend on how busy they are, normally just after lunchtime. Enjoy your stay as we did.
