This hotel suffered a major fire a few years ago and has recently been completely rebuilt to a very high standard. It is situated in the middle of Devon and is a great base to explore this wonderful County. The town of Hatherleigh is fairly quaint, some would say a bit scruffy, but it is worth visiting particularly on a market day.
The George Hotel has some lovely rooms which are very well and stylishly fitted out and fully deserve the description of boutique rooms. The bar and restaurant areas are a little more basic, but the whole establishment is kept very clean indeed. All the staff were very nice people and keen to provide excellent service.
We were on a two night B&B package (booked direct with The George) with dinner included on the second night at just £129 for the two of us which was something of a bargain.
The menu choice was fairly limited and was really only of a basic pub standard, but the prices were reasonable as were the wines, and as we were on a super deal we had no real complaint. If we visit again, and we plan to, we will choose their even better value alternative £99 B&B rate for two nights for two people, which even includes a bottle of wine, and eat out in a rather more upmarket restaurant.
For such a nice hotel they really would benefit from employing a really good chef and offering a far more extensive menu even though it will have to cost rather more.
