We stayed for 1 prebooked Friday night en-route to Lymington for the Wightlink ferry.
The hotel exterior is quite well maintained. Our bed linen was fresh & clean.The water was hot. The courtesy tray was well stocked. and the breakfast .though nondescript, was adequate.Otherwise The George has NOTHING to recommend it.
The interior decor is dingy,depressing and outdated. The fading,scuffed wallpaper which appears to have been applied when Victoria was 'on the throne' is grubby and peeling. The tatty paintwork has obviously not seen a brush for decades. Our room, faced the rear courtyard with a view across a flat roof festooned with extension leads, a ladder propped against the wall, discarded empty fast-food containers and assorted builders rubbish.
It had 3 wooden sash windows,(1 of which was permanently jammed shut,) rickety wooden wardrobes (one of which contained a mountain of black fluff plus miscellaneous bedding screwed into an untidy heap and an Over Bath Shower which was Unusable due to a large chunk of china missing from the bath exposing black layers of ceramic filler. .
The sleep quality was dismal,Even the effects of Mattresses so old that every spring could be felt, and a noisy kitchen extractor fan clearly audible until late paled into insignificance when the pounding bass from the Sports Bar Disco kicked off. This was soon overpowered when the door giving access to the outdoor smoking area was opened. The courtyard immediately filled with the sound of raucously squealing females and loud mouthed men screaming obscenities at each other.This continued until after 3am when it was replaced with revving car engines,blaring in-car audio equipment,slamming doors and screeching tyres as they left.
Our experience the George is without a doubt, one of the worst hotel we have ever stayed at..
Our triple bedded room was on the first floor another of the tired and worn-out hotels which can be found in towns and cities all over the U.K.
