Undoubtedly one of the best venues I have stayed in for a long time. The facilities are great and the staff are amazing. On arrival they make you feel welcome. The village and surrounding areas are so picturesque. The staff did an amazing job and made guests feel comfortable and they were very attentive as nothing was too big or too small. It was child friendly and was able to accommodate quite a few young children over a weekend with minimal fuss. At first I questioned the 5% service charge added to the bill, but they fully deserved it. My only criticism is that the beds and mattresses should be consistent. Part of our party had very hard beds and some were too soft. However, I would highly recommend it as a venue and I am looking forward to going back, and already miss the massaging showers!!!! If mobility impaired please be aware of the stairs leafing to the rooms.

Room Tip: The doubles are good enough, but for that little bit extra their superior rooms give that touch of e...

No fault found with this delightful old hotel, run by professionals, with no pretence or pomp, just quiet, friendly efficiency. Sunday package including b&b, dinner, and champagne cream tea on arrival is a great deal.
Lovely room, with all amenities, good dinner with more than adequate choice, excellent breakfast (prefer cloth table-covers to glass tops, but not a deal breaker).
Others are right, front rooms can be noisy - busy and fairly fast road and
junction, but sleep quality otherwise excellent.
Those complaining about the service levy on the bill should read the terms when booking - it's very clear. And my guess is that if you did not want to pay it, the management would happily deduct it. Personally I think it's a nice way to ensure that the good service of all staff is recognised.

Ate a meal in the restaurant with family on Friday evening. Experienced very poor bar service, slow and arrogant! Food was overpriced, small portions and frankly the vegetarian tart was appalling. The only reason I didn't send it back was I didn't want to spoil the ambience for our other guests as it was a special occasion. I would not visit again.

We booked via booking.com, and the description of the room was spot on. If you want a better room, book via hotel website. This hotel is spotless, friendly, helpful, comfortable, and its syle is chic-historic, very attractive. Even in our budget room there were two comfortable chairs, much appreciated. The food is excellent - the included breakfast is amazing, and the suppers absolutely delicious. If you want a budget option, there is a reduced but still delicious early-bird menu 6.30pm-7.30pm. Complimentary water in the room is a very nice touch - and it is literally years since we had staff offer to carry our bags. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them - and gluten-free food easily to hand. Well done The George, we'll be back.

Room Tip: Have a room at the back if traffic is a problem. We slept like tops at the back.

My wife and I shared a double Superior room. Service excellent and the food outstanding. Two AA Rosettes for cuisine for many years. Also very economical packages so take a look. The 4-night offer is outstanding value

Room Tip: Overlook the rear of hotel

I visited here for a weekend, my extended family were staying in other accommodation near-by. It is a very old building in the countryside, but it has been very sensitively modernised.
The room was comfortable and the attention to detail was beautiful. The bathroom was stunning- a super big bath and amazing shower. The bed was comfortable. The room was over-warm, but that was just the weather we were having. The beds have feather pillows and duvets- for some this would be high luxury, but for me it just means allergy city! These were changed quickly and without fuss.
The breakfast was varied and plentiful.
I didn't use the restaurant because I ate with my family elsewhere, but it always looked busy.
The highest praise goes to the staff, they were all so attentive, nothing was too much trouble. The young woman at reception was a real credit to her employers, so friendly and willing to help, always there with a smile and a happy remark.
The cake I had brought with me for the party was kept safe and cool, little gestures like this are really appreciated.
A winning combination of stylish, comfortable and friendly! I hope I will be back to visit again!

Dined with a group of colleagues. Whilst the service was excellent the food didn't match. Over fussy and too complicated. Suggest they simplify the menu and get the basics right.

For example rhubarb cheesecake was rhubarb mousse roll( don't believe for one moment there was any cheese in it) and no biscuit base and served with mint sorbet. What's wrong with a genuine rhubarb cheesecake??

Won't be rushing back.
