“In need of redecorating but that won't affect your sleep”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

I stayed here for 4 nights in August 2012 and found the hotel to be fine. It may not be the flashiest place in all of England but it does the job. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms are quite dated (but then so is the town) but that didn't worry me. The room had a decent sized bathroom and a tv which was great for watching the Olympics It was walking distance to the (15 mins) and burleigh (20 mins) pottery factories, which was why I was there. And there were plenty of places within a 2 minute walk to get food, there was even a little bakery that I could see right outside my window. And if you don't feel like going out there is a bar in the hotel which serves food. There was also free wifi.

Hotel is very tired and in urgent need of redecoration, but on the plus side. The courtesy of the staff at The George was second to none. Our rooms were immaculately, clean and tidy. The hard work put in by the house keepers is amazing they are under pressure to make sure that all the rooms are ready for the next intake of guests. Having no lift available to them ( broken down ) they carry all bed linen and towels up numours fights of stairs. I take my hat off to them how hard they work. From the reception through to night porters what an excellent team that will make your visit most enjoyable.

Everything was great. Service especially. Would and am going to stay there again. Is right by the pubs/clubs. The full english breakfast was brilliant in the morning. Piping hot and thoroughly cooked. Receptionist and breakfast staff were great.

A most unlikely looking building in the centre of town. The first impression is that it was a telephone converted to a hotel. in fact there has been a hotel on this site for centuries and the present building was purpose built in the 20 .th century

This is not a really bad place to stay but its not really good either.. drinks are pricey the rooms are pricey and the meals are pricey, not happy about paying for an expensive meal only to be served in the bar area where flies and other bugs were around which landed in our dinner and had to be thrown away! Rooms were ok no a/c had to ask for a fan in the heat was hardly a relief no one cleaned our room either or offered to change the sheets... (wouldn't recommend) if visiting alton towers like us its too far away and the area has almost no shops. Found a B and B in HANLEY which was MUCH better and more family friendly than this place, also nearer to alton towers which was an affordable bus ride away. Never anyone at bar or reception either.

My daughter booked the bridal suite @ £130.00 per night was told her quest would get a discount if they also booked there. She had to cancel her room 2 days before but because she was one hour late lost all of £130.00 small print states you would lose a deposit but they could tell her what the deposit amount was. Myself and 6 other guests stayed. The rooms were dirty ,customer service was shocking . We asked to have a look at the bridal room this had not been cleaned dirty tissue on the floor and confetti from the previous couple. Breakfast menu states grilled tomatoe but the serve tin tomatoes and say that the only serve tin tom. Have emailed a complaint to the owner of the hotel over two weeks ago still no response.

Room Tip: good tip do not stay here
