Good looking property, which was below expectations. Good location in the party district. Hotel is modern, but internal finishing quality not up to its standart or potential. Stayed in the 6th floor penthouse suite. Wifi not working in room, only on the terrace, complained to the reception on first day, nothing happened. Ants on the terrace, which bite you. Have complained 3 days in a row, each day reception has sent maintenance, next morning same situation, ants are back. Hotel SPA center needs maintanance, jacuzzi not working, after asking staff fixed steam room which was broken, shower broken. I never had to ask a hotel to fix problems on a daily basis, thats the reason this property is below the expectation I had. On the positive side staff are friendly and helpful, but they can't fix the maintenance and construction problems this property has.

Upon our arrival we were upgraded to the penthouse suite instead of the junior suite since the hotel was full. It was a beautiful spacious room! Very good service by the hotel staff, relaxing pool area both indoor and outdoor and good breakfast. An overall wonderful stay. Very satisfied and would definitely recommend it!

Stayed for 12 nights in one of the Penthouse rooms which has its own sun bathing terrace with sun loungers. This turned out be our best move as their no way I am getting up at 4am, to fight for a sun bed by the tiny roof top pool, when I am on holiday.

The room was very comfortable if not a bit stark and spartan and the bed was extra comfortable. We stayed room only and managed to survive doing our own thing in the room for breakfast as their is an Illy coffee maker in the room.

The hotel is on the edge of Paceville and the area frequented by the 'young set'. The hotel is also over the road from an English language school and the street is crammed with young foreigners who have no regard for normal manners or protocols. Not the hotels fault but be warned.

This is quite a nice hotel but due to its location, I probably wont return.

Room Tip: The Penthouse rooms on the 5th floor face east and give sun until about 3:45pm. This side of the ho...

A clean and friendly hotel for travellers going to St Julians. Staff were extremely helpful and very friendly, rooms were clean and well- sized, and it was generally a good distance from all attractions and bus stop. However, cleaning was inconsistent and done at rather odd times. Also,the pool, being on the roof, can be deceiptively small and not quite big enough to suit a family with young children. Nevertheless it is a well located and nice hotel that we would recommend to most travellers looking for a clean and friendly place to stay. Do be aware that this hotel is amidst much nightlife and therefore can get a bit noisy after 9 O' clock and carries some unsuitable behaviour for young children.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are quite large and adequate for families.

Stayed here for 5 nights and it was ideal as a base because it was close to restaurants and the bus stop. We had a great stay and took in a lot of the sights. Some of the fish we ate at dinner in the restaurants in the bay were simply perfect. Also very impressed with the local wine! The hotl restaurant was not brilliant but the breakfasts were very good. A nice little shop a few doors down sold very reasonably priced Prosecco and local treats.

Just had a 4 night stay here and has a great time! The staff were excellent and made you extremely welcome! Josef goes out of his way to help! Young lady at the rooftop bar was also brilliant!
The entrance lounge was very relaxing with comfy sofas you can just sit and chill in (plus free wifi). The room we had was very clean and ok there's a lively atmosphere outside at night but you can either sit and enjoy it or close the glass doors and hear none of it! Air conditioning works when doors are shut so it's nice and cool!
Restaurant was ok, breakfast was ok - not a vast choice but enough, coffee was immense!
Rooftop pool could probably do with more loungers and less posers but I prefer the sea and albeit rocky beach! It is in a busy area but this has little to do with the hotel and I for one am looking forward to a return stay here! Thank you

This place is perfect!
The location was a few minutes walk from everything you could possibly want, I was on crutches at the time & still had easy access to the beach, to Spinola Bay & it's fabulous harbour, Pachevillie & it's nightlife, shopping & restaurants, not to mention being a couple of minutes walk to buses that could take you anywhere else on the island. The hotel itself is also surrounded by numerous fantastic restaurants.
The hotels decor was beautiful, the rooms luxurious & spacious, the breakfasts catered for every possible taste & the standard of food was excellent.
The 'crowning glory' of The George has to be its staff, I've never experienced such wonderful service anywhere else! Nothing was too much trouble & every need anticipated. Thank you for a lovely holiday, I will definitely return!

Room Tip: If you're a smoker, request a room with a balcony or terrace.
