We stayed at the George as a Valentines treat and a relaxing getaway. The room we had was a good size...Although the decor was a little dated, the bed itself was excellent - kingsize & very comfortable - had a very good nights sleep. The bathroom, not quite so good - was rather shabby with mildew-y bits around the edge of the tub - nothing a good scrubbing and perhaps a bit of a light overhaul wouldn't solve though.
The biggest gripe I had with the place was the morning housekeeping policy... In my experience of hotels when a guest is checking out that day it is surely customary to wait until the guests have left to do the housekeeping so that the guests can enjoy the time they have left and also so that the cleaning can be completed thoroughly? Not so at the Royal George...at 8:30am we were awoken by the chambermaid trying to get in to the room (regardless of the do not disturb sign), we asked if she could come back in a couple of hours once we had checked out...half an hour later we went for breakfast(nothing special - quite small offerings), with plans of returning to the room afterwards to relax on the balcony before heading off...we returned to the room to find all of our towels taken away, the bed stripped and the door left wide open whilst all of our personal belongings were in there. Not wanting to get in the way (even though we'd paid £116 for the privelige!) we went out for a walk instead of staying in the room and when we returned the room had been finished...BUT, the bedspread had not been changed (although it could definately have done with it and we now needed to use the towels that were supposedly 'fresh' for the next guest. It all seemed a bit backwards to me really, and somewhat annoying...Not the relaxing morning I had in mind.
On a more positive note - if you fancy a good, filling meal in Tintern we had a lovely evening meal in the Moon & Sixpence pub up the road - very friendly cosy little place - just what you need after a walk up to Devils Pulpit!
