George Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 April 2009

For a last minute easter break this year I decided to stay at The George in Keswick. I had stayed a couple of years earlier and was not hugely impressed, but due to a cancellation, unlike anywhere else, The George had a room for me.

I was made to feel welcome from the moment I walked in and there seemed to be a real buzz about the place. My room was clean, there was an excellent selection of ales, and they were kept beautifully. The menu was huge and the food was cooked with real care. The full sized George Cow Pie is a thing to stay here for. It is immense!

I talked to the staff about my last stay and I was informed that new management had taken over in the past year. I think this explained the difference in my two stays.

It was a pleasant surprise to find the George such a lovely place to stay. My only criticism is that during my stay the place got incredibly busy, but I suppose this merely reflects the popularity of a good pub!

We made the mistake of re-visiting somewhere we'd been slightly disappointed with before only to find that it had gone even further downhill. The George is a warm, cosy and inviting place - unless you choose to eat there. When it becomes overpriced and lacking the quality you would expect for the price you pay. We had the worst sea bass ever - over cooked, over priced and bland. The lamb was little better. When we complained to the waitress she laughed. Hardly encouraging. Stay well clear!
