An old coaching house/traditional market town public house situated on the main street in Keswick, dating from around the 17th century. A great deal of the original character and fabric of the building remain unchanged (I would imagine) from it's origins. A plaque on the wall outside the main entrance, which is on the pavement of a very narrow street, informs of all the famous (and infamous) patrons who passed through the doors. The hotel has a very quirky feel and character - lots of wood paneling, narrow twisting staircase, uneven sloping floors, doors that don't quite fit the openings and a wonderfull atmosphere. Ours was a late booking (3 hours) and the room we had overlooked the main entrance, which we were a little concerned about as the pub was very lively on our arrival at 6.30 and we were dreading the late night departures and possible noise. But our concerns were unwarranted. Obviously people were still leaving the pub and restaurant until late night but caused no disturbance. The room was quaint but very comfortable and clean with most of the items you require -tea,coffee, hair dryer etc., and a small, wall mounted TV which looked and performed as though it had been to a party the night before! The en-suite had been built into the original largish room and so occupied probably a fifth of the original room, but even this fairly modern addition still had a wonky floor and ill-fitting door which blended perfectly with the overall flavour. Car parking around the rear of the pub is very limited and is very much on a first come basis but the hotel has an arrangement to use the town main car park which is only a short walk away. The staff could not be faulted in any way and were efficient and obliging in every respect. Breakfast is served in the restaurant area and is as comprehensive and filling as you may need. I have reviewed the restaurant elsewhere but would class that as excellent also. I will have no hessitation in re-booking at The George in future. .
