“Lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed 13 August 2007

Friday 10th August

We have been to stay at the George 2 times before and initially chose it as it was in the Johansson guide for good food. We stayed in the Cavendish room, a lovely characterful room, with sloping floors, over looking the street. A little bit faded glory but clean and comfortable. The meal was lovely with an excellent choice, Friday is fish night therefore that was the key focus. The service and atmosphere was excellent with a very relaxed feel. The breakfast was equally good, full English but also cereals if prefered. The draw for us is an excellent restaurant with rooms and gave the perfect venue for a romantic engagement!

Just stayed at The George for 3 nights. I would certainly recommend the hotel to anyone looking for great value accommodation with excellent service and good food.
On arrival was met by Angelo who was the only staff member I encountered during my stay. He was a pleasure to deal with and his attention to service was second to none. He is a real asset to the hotel.
The room was well decorated with a comfy clean bed.
I had a lovely 2 course meal on my first night (£15.95) and the Nethergate brewery real ale was spot on (£2.60 per pint).
The village is small and quaint whilst 4 miles up the road is Long Melford which is larger place that has a good range of pubs and places to see such as Kentwell Hall.
A lovely part of the world which I would happily return to and stay at The George again.

  • Liked — Great service and good value for both accommodation and food.

We have just spent a weekend at The George Hotel in Cavendish, Suffolk. We were warmly greeted by the Manager Angelo, and I have to say everyrhing jusy got better from there. It is situated in the prettiest little village in a wonderfull location.
On our arrival we were shown to our rooms which were the Cavendish and the Devonshire. They were spotless and beautiful. Very well stocked with bottles of water, tea, coffee and hot chocolate. Lunch was very good, we managed to sit in the courtyard, which was charming. The food was very good and the service excelent. Angelo attends to your every need.
Breakfast was very good with a choice of Sunday papers, very relaxing. We invited some freinds for Sunday lunch and once again we could not have been more impressed
Thank you Angelo for looking after us so well! We will most definately be going back for more.
