What can i say no loo roll had to borrow off friends and family who only had small supply's tried to find someone to help nobody available ? No management or staff available while we were there on a Saturday I may add... 12 in our party for my sisters birthday when returned we attempted to enter the side door only to find our keys would not open the door .. Which at 2.30am in the rain in your party frocks is not good .. Was it not for our wonderful taxi driver who came to our rescue and managed to get us in who knows what we would have done . Also the fire driil on the back of the door say report to member of staff for a roll call very hard if there is no staff . Could be a great place !! Shame ..

Well what can I say. The locals in Henfield are lovely. The George hotel is not so. It was clean. That's all I can say. Told when we arrived that there was no dinner in the restaurant as she closed at 8. It was a Saturday night. Also no breakfast included as no staff. What annoys me there were 12 of us staying here. No staff were left in building after 8 except a chef who seemed in a world of his own. We had to get the taxi driver to open the door to the building as it just wouldn't budge. Just because it has an original beam does not make it worth charging the earth for nothing. All in all an appalling over priced under achieving hotel. Would not waste my money again.

Having been very let down by another "hotel" we were given a "premier apartment" at this establishment. We entered the car park past some black garage doors and were shocked to discover that our accommodation was in fact within these doors! We were shown a very cold, cheaply decorated, tatty room described as an apartment! There was a wire hanging out of the ceiling in front of our door. A huge hole in the wall behind the toilet which we found a cover for, the shower tray was surrounded by cardboard underneath. it looked like someone had started converting these garages into "apartments" and had lost heart and run out of money before they were finished. Thank goodness it was free because I wouldn't havd paid, and I really pity anyone that had booked a basic room here...

This is an old building with the restrictions that brings. Staff are friendly but don't seem that interested in the place. We had a new self catering apartment in which little worked. Parking is limited to a small area at the back and if you need an early start you may be blocked in. Nice place to stay for a couple of days touring around the area. Henfield itself is like stepping back fifty years

The George Inn is a lovely heart warming hotel in Henfield Village. As soon as we walked in the front door we were warmly greeted by a member of staff and shown to our rooms. The rooms were lovely and cosy, each with their en-suite, TV and a hair dryer. The beds were wondrously warm and soft. They had two lovely wood burning fires in the Tudor lounge and the food was stupendously delicious. All the food is freshly cooked and I especially liked the lamb shank and the chocolate cheesecake with brandied cherries. The only few things I would be slightly critical of is when you go to the men's bathroom you have to walk down a draughty corridor, and the hair dryer isn't very up to date. I had a brilliant time there with my family.

Nov 2013 They accepted a booking for 3 business persons knowing full well that there was no chef on site. Admitedly the booking was B&B, but had they said it would be necessary to go to the local pub for an evening meal, we would have taken advantage of the local B&B at £50 each instead of the George's £76!
Dec 2013 A businessman staying B&B for 4 nights did not have his room cleaned or bed made for the latter 2 days. The hotel's response - "Oh yes - the housekeeper called in sick."
Needless to say, we will not be using The George Hotel again. However, we will continue to support local business by using The Laurels and Prospect Cottage B&Bs in Henfield instead.

What a terrible disappointment. Room cosy and charming, service definitely not. There was confusion about breakfast entitlement. When I turned up for breakfast as agreed, place was in darkness and all doors were locked. I was effectively locked in corridor. Not a good feeling. Got no breakfast and had to go to important meeting hungry and annoyed. I was phoned by junior member of staff twice asking me for payment, incorrectly, on both occasions. One lovely member of staff, others inexperienced and untrained.
