George and Pilgrims Hotel
Ranked #3 of 5 Hotels in Glastonbury
Reviewed 15 August 2012

My partner and I stayed one night at the George and Pilgrims in mid August, a stop-off point on a tour of the South and South West. We had a great time at this historic hotel. We requested a room in the old part of the building, and our room had loads of character - sloping floor, wonky ceiling and walls and one very small window. Comfy bed and clean, neat bathroom. However, it's the public and bar areas of the hotel which are really nice - relaxed atmosphere, interesting period features and friendly staff. We had dinner and breakfast the next morning, and the food was excellent.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the old part of the building, but be prepared for it to be smaller, and darker tha...

I only stayed for one night and so wish it could have been longer. I booked this hotel because of it's history, if (and when) I come again I will book it because of the lovely staff! Nothing is too much trouble and they make you feel as if you are truly welcome. The hotel itself is very atmospheric and I hope it never changes ... dark and a bit shabby yes but that is how it should be for a 600 year old inn... not bright and pristine like a corporate idea of what it should be. Only a few yards from the entrance to the Abbey too. My room was no. 15 and a view of the top of the abbey, I could not fault it.. very clean with a large bathroom - all immaculate. We had sunday lunch which was plentiful and the breakfast on Monday was perfect.

Room Tip: Ask for one in the 'old part'....

My husband and I stayed at the George and Pilgrims 17 years ago, and loved it. This time though, our room was disappointing - no view - tiny windows - airless and stuffy. The previous occupants had left a necklace under the bed; why didn't the cleaner find it? The en-suite shower room was dirty. The actual loo and basin were clean enough, but there was black mould in the shower cubicle and I wouldn't have touched the paint-work, especially on the back of the door.
The breakfast was brilliant! Loved the full veggie and great toast, and the dining-room service was excellent. At least we didn't have to cope with bed-bugs, as did the people we came with.

We had lunch and drinks and this is almost a mini cathedral. A cool beer garden at the back and the staff are so kind and helpfull. You can wander round and see oil paintings and stained glass. Feels like you have time travelled a few centuries in time. Glad its not been modernised as it retains age old character. We sat next to a couple who were staying there and they were full of praise.

My husband and I was part of a group and we stayed there for a week. We liked it a lot! The Hotel is old and charming. The staff was very helpful and kind. The food was good and the location is super. The rooms could have been more thorough cleaned, but it didn't bother us much.

The George and Pilgrim is very nice small hotel a located in the very centre of Glastonbury. We had a very large bedroom with a very comfortable four poster bed and a very large bathroom. The breakfast in the hotel was very good along with the bar meals which were excellent. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful in a building which is centuries old and is of of great historical interest. The bar is a superb area in which to have a drink with friends in quirky interesting surroundings. There are limited parking spaces but this is offest by the availability of a large public car park immediately to the rear of the hotel and all daytime parking has to be paid for. If you like quirky people andsurroundings then this is a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Get a four poster room if it is available

Our stay was very pleasant. Staff were friendly and helpful. Our evening meals were delicious and even though they were very busy we were served quickly and efficiently. We stayed in The Abbot de Bere room complete with a four poster bed and great ambience. The shower was great - hot and roomy, our only criticism was - the mattress - it could have been better and I now have backache sadly.
We intend to return - just need to organise some dry weather!!!

Room Tip: We had a room on the front of the hotel and obviously had some noise from the street, but it didn...
