The George Inn has a documented history since 1731 as a hostelry. With that kind of background, one would expect that the hosts know how to take care of their guests. In this, the traveler will not be disappointed. Paul and Nikki Wilkinson go the extra mile to ensure that their guests are comfortable. I have a physical challenge that makes stairs hard for me to negotiate, so they moved me from the third to the second floor. When it came time for us to go to the bus station (which is only a 5 minute walk away), they arranged for an employee to give us a ride.
Jill in the dining room serves up a really great full British breakfast, which is included with the room. Eggs, sausage, British bacon, beans, toast, OJ, cereal, and bottomless pots of coffee and tea. She is happy to alter its contents for personal preference - I don't go for beans at breakfast, and she subbed a nice piece of cheese, which I like with the scrambled eggs. We didn't eat dinner there, but the prices are very reasonable, and we were told by other guests that dinner, like breakfast, was really very tasty.
Of course, the building is several hundred years old, and that means that rooms are not as large as modern hotels offer. There are no telephones in the rooms. But they have strong free WiFi as well as flat screen TVs with many channels.
The entrance to the Royal Dockyard Museum is only half a block away. This was our original reason for staying at the George Hotel. Now that we have been there and enjoyed the warm ambience, I wouldn't stay any place else in Portsmouth.
