Superb stay with top quality service

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 9 Feb 2019via mobile
Arrived on a very wet and windy day, so we took our time to settle in to our room, which was huge! We went for a deluxe double and I'm pretty sure its the equivalent of a small house.

The facilities were fantastic and the staff exceptional. Happy hour in the bar is very worth it on the cocktails and the breakfast was delicious.

There was one small negative and that was the radiator being stuck high. Although trying to turn down, it seems that it remained insanely hot but only realised this in the early hours of the morning.

Louise P,

Thank you for your review, we are all delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. Our re-designed bar lounge and the recent introduction of our Mixologist has most certainly stimulated much interest, both locally and from our resident guests. A fabulous cocktail by the open fire in the bar lounge is a perfect tonic at any time of day.

We have noted for maintenance the radiator valve adjustment which has now received our attention, and offer our apologies for any discomfort.

Look forward to welcoming back, hopefully during better weather conditions.

Best Wishes

Brian Garside
General Manager

          A really lovely pub, so easy to get to after a short trip on the ferry from Southampton. The food was delicious, the staff friendly and attentive and the views from the dining room over looking the sea were great! Definitely worth a visit.

          Had the most wonderful dining experience at the George.
          Food was amazing, the wine list expansive and the service faultless.
          Our appreciation to Frank in his professionalism and courteous manner.
          Will definitely make the effort to visit again soon. Thank you

          Forget slick chain hotels - step back in time to a truly historic hotel in a charming old fashioned seaside setting. Tasteful decor, lovely original features and friendly staff made our New Years visit most enjoyable. No private parking at all. Watch parking in the square - the traffic warden hovered by our car hoping for a kill 15 minutes before our ticket was up!!

          Just had a great well prepared christmas luncheon here with the family, really good christmas seasonal menu and excellently executed by the head chef . I visit the island often throughout the year from London and often struggle to find venues on the island with great food, i.e. a London standard food. Now i have found this restaurant I will of course return for further enjoyable meals.

          A tastefully decorated Dickensian Christmas scene with the flagstone entrance lobby. Service at lunch could have been more attentive, I found that i was having to catch the eye of the staff for service rather than a natural process of them watch the movement of the room, this become more obvious when the second sitting started when waiting staff seemed to disappear completely . More training for waiting staff required, and judging by other reviews i have have read I'm not the first to point this out.

          The guest toilets on the ground floor needs improvement they were more befitting of a workers or pub washroom rather than that of a quality establishment - Your secret to your future success will be with both your quality food, service and quality of offering - Overall good but I'm afraid not prefect yet...
