“Quality accommodation and very dog friendly”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Stayed for 1 night with a chocolate lab...some local characters in the pub made it a very welcoming place.Room very clean, everything thought of but sadly no biscuits for the morning! However, placed in an ideal location, both dinner and breakfast were delicious and not over priced. Church bells a pleasure...lovely to hear.A wonderful location for walking and we will be back.

Stayed here for one night on a five day walking holiday.
The room was nicely furnished and comfortable.
Not unusually, the shower left a bit to be desired.
Didn't have dinner so can't comment, but the full English breakfast was excellent.

The George Hotel is a pub with 4 rooms. We stayed one night and our room was pretty, bright and clean with an extremely comfortable bed. There were plenty of towels and the small en-suite bathroom had a good shower and heated towel rail. We arrived mid-evening when the pub was in full swing and the bar staff were cheerful and helpful. I imagine it would be noisy if you were hoping for an early night but a pub's a pub so I think some noise goes with the territory. Really good breakfast the following morning (thanks Andrew). A nice stay in a place that provided what it said it would.

The George provides a chocolate box scene, being situated next to the 'Cathedral of the Peak' - -the beautiful Tideswell church. If you want to stay in an unspoilt rural location in the company of the 'locals' and a pint of good beer then the George fits the bill. It's not the normal concept of a hotel as there are only 4 rooms and the George seems to be the social centre of the village. We found things very much as described by the other recent reviews. Our room at the front enabled us to have a good idea of merrymaking in the bar below and I would therefore recommend a side room facing the church ( numbers 3 & 4 ? ). The breakfast was good, although there was no fruit or yoghurt offered - maybe we should have asked.
Overall I'd recommend the George to walkers, dog-owners, ale-lovers and couples seeking some authentic Peak character. The location is ideal for Chatsworth, Bakewell, Buxton, the Blue John Caves and Castleton. The huge church and the village itself are a bonus.

Room Tip: Ask for a side room facing the church.

Sadly have to agree with CW2402 about the welcome. I don't expect a fanfare and tickertape but a group of locals staring as if we had landed from Mars wasn't great.

The room was clean and comfortable, bed very comfy indeed. Central heating wasn't on despite it being chilly April. Fan heater available but noisy. Weak electric shower and nowhere in the bathroom to lay anything out. Noise from pub carried through the floor, quiet after closing but not a place for an early night.

Dinner in the pub was fine, average pub food, good portions and well priced. The breakfast was also OK and the fresh bread really nice. There was no ambience or warmth in the dining area of the pub either at dinner or breakfast. It all felt a bit unloved, like a country and western song, someone holding it together through bad times.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that isn't directly over the pub and the car park.

I'd booked a room in this hotel because I was working in the local area for a few days. The hotel itself is beautiful, as is the location. I was however a little disappointed with the welcome upon arrival. I arrived early evening and felt rather uncomfortable whilst checking in, the man that I spoke to was not particularly friendly, but was still very polite.

The room was fantastic with a very comfy bed, however iI did not get the best nights sleep.

Unfortunately, the room that I was in was positioned directly above the pub, and to the front of the building, and so I could hear the noise coming from boozy people downstairs. The windows are single glazing and so did very little to keep the noise out. In addition to this, on the second night of my stay here, I arrived back from a 12 hour day at work to discover that there was a rock concert going on outside my front window. The landlord allowed me to check out without paying for the second night, but I found it incredibly unhelpful that I had not been notified about this concert at the time of booking, and was left to find alternative accommodation at very short notice due to the noise.

Needless to say I checked out early on this occasion!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room which is not at the front of the property!!!

We have stayed in the family room with a double and a single bed. The room was cosy, clean and comfortable. Owner and the staff were very hospitable. It had a large clean bathroom. We were pleasantly surprised that the breakfast was included in the already good value price. The breakfast was very good and catered for varied choices. The view of the Church next-door added to the character. It was much better than staying at an indistinctive room at a large hotel chain.
