popped in for a meal after looking at the jail, there was no signs to guide you through to where you go to eat ,was quite confusing. Once sat down a lady approached us gave us a menu and went off for 10 mins even though the place was fairly quiet. Service was ok we have had better the blonde girl that served us seemed miserable. The food was nice but the gammon was over cooked , how ever my partner thoroughly enjoyed his haggis and neeps. Lovely decorated place just shame about the service.

Inveraray is a tiny town at the head of Loch Fyne, and the George Hotel is one of the white washed buildings which line the High Street built by the Duke of Argyll when he moved the whole village to prevent its spoiling the views of his castle. From the outside it looks a modest size, but it turns out to be a cavernous honeycomb of interconnected rooms around a central bar. It was thronging with customers - where they came from we could not imagine. The menu has a good choice at reasonable prices, and we enjoyed our venison and sea bream without thinking that either were unforgettable. On such a busy night, our waiters, one from Bulgaria, one from Aragon, and one from Australia, all coped pretty well. At 9.45 a three piece band took up residence in the bar area (it was a Friday night) after which conversation anywhere in the hotel was impossible. However, generally it made a good impression, feeling like a country hostelry ought to be..

Myself and three others dined here after attending a local food fayre nearby. Chips were very good, best I've had in a long time, fish was bland and batter could have been crisper. Scottish bruschetta sounded great, wild garlic being a favourite of mine was no where to be seen on my dish, the pesto was made with garlic gloves, was very strong and could taste it for hours after eating. The soup sandwich combo was nice, a little pricey for what you got apart from that staff were very nice and helpful, will return again.

We stayed one night and our room was in the 'First House' which is an historic building converted into small bedrooms which were OK for a night but no more. We ate at the hotel and the food was average. The breakfast was included in the tariff and provided various options. Secure car parking at the hotel was a big plus.

Room Tip: The First House room we stayed in was small but cosy. If you have trouble climbing stays find somewh...

On a rainy Sunday lunchtime we found this place as they were fine with kids and dogs and we're so glad we did. Gorgeous old bar with stone walls and open fires made for an amazing setting. We were not disappointed in any way with the food and service, as everything was spot on. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone within a 50 mile radius looking for lunch!!

We stayed here for our anniversary, bank holiday weekend, booking the Sunday Snug, and what a treat it was! We arrived to a beautiful room(9) with 4 poster bed, whirlpool bath (in the room) and a bottle o fizz. There was plenty of space with a sofa, table and tv and everything you need, hair dryer, wardrobe space, hangers, tea/coffee facilities and even a vintage writing desk. The bed was v comfy and you get a partial view of Loch Fyne. We ate in the restaurant, food was excellent and reasonably priced, £50 of which was covered by the £155 for Snug reservation. Service was prompt and friendly. Staff on reception were lovely and helpful and everything was just dandy! Have recommended to everyone I know as it's a real gem. Inveraray itself could do with a lick o paint mind you :) Will def return.

Highly recommend. Really enjoyable food and great atmosphere. We had a special which was lamb. The fish also looked really good and a great size.They accept pets which is a bonus. Have lots of choice of beverages. Always busy for a reason.
