The George Hotel
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in Pangbourne
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Whilst the facilities were quite basic, the new owners were very friendly and keen to help with anything that we needed. The room was very adequate for our needs and a tasty breakfast was included in the price.

Stayed: June 2014

Dear Tamsin, many thanks for taking the time to send us your views. Really appreciated. At the time you stayed, we were just weeks into our new management. It now seems so long ago. The improvements have continued at a pace. Thanks for the comments about the breakfast. The bar food is well settled and getting great feedback, the restaurant has kicked off, and there are new beers in the bar. We have addressed negative feedback given to us with improvements. I hope you will be able to give us even better marks if you visit again.

We stayed here, when the new owners had taken over just a few weeks previously. Yes there is a lot to do...I.e. Get rid of fold down beds, redo bathrooms, smarten up the breakfast room, and freshen up the whole place, but I think given time the place will change to a much better establishment . A lot to do and a way to go, but the friendly staff and understanding manager will I am sure make a success of The George. Best of luck.

Many thanks for your very full, frank and fair opinions, I value the time you put in.
We have continued our work to make improvements,
There is only one bed which looks like fold-away. There must have been a 'fad' at the time the time that this bedroom suite was installed. Yours is the only negative comment I have received about this, but I fully respect your opinion.
Thanks for giving it time, we are using that time with improvements, and I hope very much that you will be able to see us again soon.

Stayed here for one night as we were attending a wedding nearby. The hotel is very tired and basic but just about adequate, if your expectations are limited. Some redecoration works seems to be going on (I could smell fresh paint in the reception area anyway) but the decor and furnishing in the rooms is very tired and in need of updating. Bed was reasonably comfortable and linen and towels clean and in good condition - the best feature. The hotel is right next to the main railway line though, so there is a lot of train noise if you have your windows open (a necessity unless you're staying there in winter). The service was polite but limited - e.g. staff remained on the phone while dealing with us. We went to check out breakfast in the morning, which is 7am-10am. We got there at 9.50 and it looked as if it had already finished - no tables were laid and there was only a table with some cornflakes and a bowl of tired fruit available. Rather than try and get anything (our expectations being low as to what would emerge) we skipped it and went around the corner to a cafe instead. Overall, adequate as somewhere to lay your head for a night but don't expect much more than that.

Many thanks for the feedback. Having recently taken charge, the team will take constructively the critical comments, and work hard to resolve the issues we inherited. Indeed, we have already attended to concerns. We will not be complacent, and we will continue our campaign of improvements

We stayed here after a friends wedding in Wallingford. We met the new owner, Mr Raj, who is such a friendly, welcoming man. His staff are lovely and couldn't help us enough. There were 6 of us staying there, 3 couples, and they kept the bar open for us till the early hours, then were up in the morning ready to serve breakfast.
I have read the other reviews, and I can safely say it's a different place now it is under new ownership!
As the hotel was empty, our rooms were upgraded and we had the honeymoon suite, complete with four poster bed. The rooms are pretty basic, but clean.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.
