We stayed for a 3 nights at The George for a weekend break, and stayed in a family room and a double room. The hotel's location is very convenient with many restaurants nearby. Hotel lobby looks impressive and the breakfast room with atrium roof was bright and comfortable, but food selection was average. The rooms were spacious and housekeeping needed more attention. The family room was laid out with 4 separate single beds, rather than combining two into a kingsize bed and leaving the other two as twins. The family room was provided with 4 towels on the first night, then reduced to 3 on the second night and eventually down to 2 on the third night. This room had a balcony, but the attracts noise from the street and bars nearby. However, the double room was worse! The room telephone wasn't plugged in, the room had a smokey smell and to make matters worse, the air-conditioning didn't work. Luckily it was still cool at night by keeping the windows open, but couldn't get rid of the smell. We reported the fault to management but they couldn't change the room for us, so we requested for free breakfast as compensation. This request was passed from one staff to another and we wondered whether getting the manager's approval was an excuse. The spa pool in the basement was also ill-managed. There were showers but no changing or locker facilities and the shower rooms were unisex, but didn't have locks! The main pool was small, water was merky and the water jets were not working, the sauna room was not hot enough and the steam room was even worse. All-in-all, The George looks like a 4-star hotel, but 2-star management.
