in our travels around the world..george and i have met many great stays but i recommend people try out this quaint little hotel and GEORGE the Bartender..he is what makes traveling a soothing emotional memory..great service, works hard and how he treated his customers with NO attitude. Myself and George LOVED his spirit and care and knowledge in traveling the World. Spend time with this bartender everyone and you will see a smiling,outgoing and caring young man. Thank you George and tolerating our stories. Hotels cannot afford to lose people like him..the Staff is so important. William and George..Americans

Room Tip: spend time in the beautiful Bar and say hello to George from the Americans

A short ferry trip away, as a special treat, booked for one night at The George. Did not fail in any respect. Offered upgraded room, with wonderful room overlooking the Solent. An excellent dinner and very attentive staff. The most comfortable bed with pillows to die for. Would be very happy to return.

We visited Yarmouth for the day with some friends as a birthday treat and enjoyed a lovely Sunday lunch in the restaurant with a wonderful view.
Good service, friendly staff and nice surroundings.
We would certainly like to return.

The George is in a lovely position overlooking the Solent. The public rooms are attractive and the building itself is impressive. The restaurant is lovely, the food is of high quality and the breakfasts are great.
Yarmouth is an attractive little village, with three pubs and some nice independent shops.
And now to the not so good bits.
The location of the parking away from the hotel is a pain, it wouldn't be convenient for someone with disabilities or if you have a large amount of luggage, although not sure if you can park in the town with a disability sticker overnight or for more than two hours. The parking costs 6.60 for 24 hours (+ 40 pence surcharge if you book it over the phone) so this cost must be factored into your stay.
Our room was booked through late rooms and cost 120 pounds per night for bed and breakfast which was just about acceptable as a price for the standard room we stayed in during what should be off-peak season. There is no way that I'd pay the standard 'from 190 pounds' quoted online as the usual tariff for this though, I've no idea how they justify this price. There is no health club or any other facilities in the hotel other than a restaurant and a bar. The standard rooms (we stayed in room 25) are in a remote part of the hotel up two flights of stairs (again, no idea if they have rooms suitable for disabled or elderly people, but these ones are definitely NOT suitable, there is no lift). The standard rooms are in the attic, the paint is peeling in the bathroom, the door to the bathroom is cheap and needs yanking, the shower is an overhead shower with a non-removable head so no good for ladies who do not want to get their hair wet and if you were washing it anyway it would take you a month of Sundays as it is the most miserable excuse for a shower I have ever come across. There is no excuse for a pathetic shower output these days, it's one of the fundamentals of an overnight stay. There are no tea and coffee making facilities in the room, although when we arrived the receptionist (who didn't offer to help with luggage when she showed us to our room - remember those two flights of stairs?) advised that we could order tea and coffee prior to dinner, so I'm assuming you could order it if you wanted it for free? I think this is an unnecessary inconvenience, how much would it cost the hotel to include this in rooms?
I would go to The George for food, but I would go elsewhere if staying on the island, there must be places that offer much better value for money.
If you don't know the island, we explored most of it and alternative nice places to stay would be in Cowes or Ventnor, Newport is not so nice, nor is Shanklin.
We recommend the buses for getting around the island if you don't have your car with you, they offer a brilliant and convenient service.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 25, which was a standard room that had seen better days.

Loved our stay. Service, staff and food were fantastic. Wonderful location right on the waters edge.

It's a beautiful old build building with creaky floorboards plenty of old charm. Did not want to leave. Thank you so much
