Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Great place to stay, in the process of refurbishment so think we were probably the first in our room since it's makeover. Friendly and welcoming staff, clean and smart rooms, great breakfast, super quiet location only a 7 min walk from Euston - will definitely be visiting again particularly if kept at same prices.

We stayed here for one night while we were travelling. I wasn't expecting much but it turned out to be in a really great location, the rooms were cosy, the staff were friendly and it was very clean. Would recommend for someone who wanted great value for money!

I stayed at The George recently for 3 nights with my girlfriend. Hotel was under some works but we did not notice them which is good.
Place is nice and the room was big and comfortable.
Breakfast was nice too
The only thing was the general mood in the reception desk. No Matter who was there that was always touching the rudeness. However on the other side, staff serving breakfast was really nice.

I booked this hotel last minute, and wasn't sure what to expect given the mixed reviews but it wasn't bad at all. It is currently undergoing renovations and I was put into a newly refurbished room and it was lovely. Nice, neutral decor and the ensuite wet room was gorgeous. I had a fantastic nights sleep thanks to the memory foam mattress, and breakfast was very nice and excellent value). The stairways and corridors haven't been updates yet so are looking rather tired, but overall I would gladly stay here again.

Room Tip: Assuming all the available rooms have been refurbished then I would say that any room would be more...

Stayed for 3 nights in room 39 and was very impressed. Alot of the reviews on here are quite negative, so I wasn't expecting much, but our room was lovely!
The room was very clean, nicely decorated, has lots of natural light, spacious, and with plenty of storage for 2 people. Tea and coffee making facilities, TV with Freeview, and a reading light mounted on the wall each side of the bed.The bathroom is a really good size with a lovely shower, and very clean too.
Bad points- The hotel is still being renovated, so there is some noise in the day, and the wifi didn't work. Also the stairs to the top floor are quite steep, so might be difficult for less mobile guests.
I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Top floor has been renovated although staircase is quite steep.

Pros - the location of this property is great, easy walk to two underground stations and two train stations. The bed was comfortable and the linen was more than acceptable. If you book on line, breakfast is not included and costs 5UKPounds per person. If you book directly with them, breakfast is included. The mattress was good and there was loads of hot water.

Cons - this hotel is being renovated, something that is not noted on the web page. Everything about this hotel is below standard and unless they strip it down completely, it will continue to be a 2 star at best and less on a bad day. The bathroom was made of moulded plastic and I believe it is the same as something you'd find in a boat or camper.

Would we stay there again? My husband would divorce me if I booked us there and his comments was "I'd rather stick pins in my eyes".

As other reviewers have commented, hotel is currently undergoing renovation, which it generally needs in that the structure and decor are somewhat outdated. However, our double ensuite room was acceptable for the price, which included a decent full English breakfast. Please note that the bathroom was a very tight modular unit designed to add a bathroom to one of the London row house rooms). Although there are tube stops nearby they all involve a bit of a walk; busses are more readily accessible and of course it's within walking distances of the British Museum, the theaters and various other things.
