We held our wedding reception here on 19th October. Sarah and her staff were brilliant right from the moment we first enquired. They worked seamlessly to bring everything together so that there was nothing I had to worry about either before or on the day. All of our guests have commented on how well the day went, how delicious the food was and how lovely the venue was. If we had the choice again, we wouldn't change a thing. Thank you.

I have stayed at The George on a number of occasions for business and it is slowly improving. The rooms are much cleaner, the décor has been freshened up but the TV's still need updating. So, a comfortable stay for a night or two, the breakfast is good and the staff mostly cheerful, helpful and efficient. At times parking can be a problem when the hotel is busy but I will no doubt be returning to the George before too long.

We stayed 2 nights. It is an in -town hotel, so a bit noisy, but other features make up for this!
Great bar, good food, excellent location with several good dining choices.
Main town square, about 3 block walk-Fantastic Waitrose less than 75 yards around the corner--antiques mall next door and most surprising a vast, magical Wallingford castle and garden right out your back door--don't miss it, we almost did--right through a small gate at rear of parking lot.
Bus to oxford 35 minutes--hassle free.
Room probably needs an upgrade, but pricing was reasonable and parking was a snap.
Would stay again!

Stayed here for a weekend away for my fiances birthday and had great time at this hotel, very friendly helpful staff, good location as right in the heart of Wallingford, rooms very clean and spacious and the hotels own bike hire which i didnt know about was fantastic as we spent a day cycling along the thames.
Overall would definitely recommend the george.

Room Tip: Rooms over looking the courtyard can be a little noisy

This hotel has very high standards; lovely rooms, friendly staff, good bar, tasty food, free WIFI. This was the first time I had stayed in Room 101 and it was great! Ticked all the boxes for me. Was even able to watch the mighty Arsenal outclass Napoli after dinner.

Room Tip: Try Room 101 !

We had high hopes of this hotel because we have stayed in 2 other Peel Hotels (Crown & Mitre, Carlisle and Caledonian in Newcastle) and we were not disappointed. Receptionist, Mandy, made us very welcome on arrival and we quickly completed the usual formalities before going to our room. The George Hotel is over 400 years old (even a ghost in residence in the bar area). However, our room had all the usual modern amenities, with a comfortable bed, wide flat screen TV and a "welcome tray" which included tea, coffee, chocolate and shortbread biscuits. We overlooked the heated courtyard where residents and locals were drinking and eating. Our evening meals were first class, cooked by chef Andre & team, and served by two delightful waitresses (Ashton & Kat) who were very keen to help and answered all our questions about the area and hotel. Breakfast was freshly cooked not left on heated plates! Ideally situated for Oxford, Henley and Blenheim by car or by a good bus network plus walks along the Thames towpath. We stayed 3 days and 2 nights and will definitely return before too long.

Room Tip: As it is a 400 year old listed building it is not possible to install a lift. However, the stairs ar...

Kindest regards,
