The George Hotel was completely rebuilt after total destruction by fire five years ago. It is now a superb reconstruction of the original circa circa 1450 thatched building so that, although it has all the appearance of a very old building with lovely old timbers, flagstones etc, it actually has beautifully fitted modern rooms and facilities but still in the old style.
A group of seven of us stayed at the George Hotel for a night in the middle of cycling The Tarka Trail. The weather was appalling and we arrived very wet and very dirty. The staff could not have been more accomodating and didn't blink an eye at this crowd of battered, filthy men arriving to stay with them!
The bar was lively from mid afternoon until closing time and we had a splendid and merry stay at The Gerge. The rooms are very comfortable and very well appointed with lovely modern showers, very comfortable beds, underfloor heating, tea making facilities and large modern Television. I think that it is fair to rate the rooms as 'Luxury', which is the description given by the hotel themselves.
We ate both lunch, dinner and breakfast in the hotel and I would rate this food as good pub food, with breakfast being the best of the three meals. A really good 'Full English'.
The staff at The George were all friendly and helpful and it was a real pleasure to stay at the George. We will stay there again if we make another assault across North Devon on our bicycles!
This would be a very good place to stay for a short romantic break!!
