I got married in my home-village very near to Cranbrook, as such we needed accommodation for guests. The George hotel obliged and all 12 rooms were booked by our guests for 2 nights. My now, husband and best man also stayed here the night before the wedding, and we returned together for our wedding night! The hotel is lovely and full of charm, it's also a very popular local. Reports from the family were that the food in the restaurant was lovely.
Having looked at a number of the rooms, I'd say the ones in the oldest part of the hotel are the best and have the most space/character.
The Crimson room, with the 4-poster was lovely and had all the amenities we could need. The bathroom let's the room down a little, it could feel more 'special' and the black and white doesn't altogether go with the red and gold in the bedroom. It was also very hot in the room (not outside!) and so had to have the windows open all night. Not an issue but there were night time road works going on which were noisy (not the fault of the hotel of course!).
Only other downside was the speed of service at breakfast. Some people were waiting over an hour on the morning of the wedding for it! Not good when you're in a bit of a hurry to get ready etc... It was a bit better on the Sunday morning.
Altogether a lovely place. Pricey, but good.
