“Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Great place to stay in the centre of South Molton. Rooms and the hotel is far beyond the quality I would expect from a 2 star hotel, i have seen worse in 4 stars! breakfast was excellent, staff were helpful. definitely recommend!

It was a fantastic experience. So nice to be at a family run hotel who care about the customers. I spend a lot of time in hotels on business, mainly corporate owned without any personal treatment. They even provided black pudding for breakfast even though it wasn't on the menu. Now that is what you call service.

Room Tip: I only saw my room so I can't comment.

stayed two nights, on a deal with breakfast each morning and dinner one night. We were invited to book again for the second which we did straight after the first - great menu, no limitations on which menu can be ordered from - bar/restaurant/specials - good service and great food.
The room was comfortable and clean. We would definitely stay again and recommend as a short break hotel to explore the area...

HI there. Thanks for your comments and I'm glad you enjoyed the food. Our menus offer a great choice of Bar food and evening menu and I'm pleased you decided to eat again on the second night. Our service is relaxed and friendly but efficient at the same time and I'm glad it worked for you!

We thought South Molton would be a convenient centre to re-visit old haunts of many years ago in North Devon and the voucher deal offered a reasonable price. I would class the hotel as what used to be called a "commercial hotel" I.e. offering acceptable facilities for a short stay business traveller.
Staff, beds and food were all excellent but the dinner menu and "specials" board seemed static and might be a problem for long stay guests.
We had to keep reminding ourselves this was a very old listed building so the noisy creaking and sloping floor was part of the character and charm of the bedroom but a few discreetly placed nails might have facilitated a silent trip to the bathroom.
The shower in the bath was new and worked well but the glass screen was inadequate and could not prevent the wet floor. There is a need for a sturdy wall mounted grab rail as the bath was mounted quite high and proved difficult to step in and out .Slipping could be a problem.

Room Tip: Choose the ground floor if stairs are a problem. There is no lift.

Thank you for your kind comments. Our hotel is a Grade 2 listed historic coaching inn dating back to the 1720's as the earliest recorded date of there being an inn on the site. We do have a few creaky floorboards but try our hardest to ensure that modern needs are met. For example we have wifi throughout the hotel, power showers, freeview TV and a sympathetic contemporary interior. The choice of Bar Menu and Evening Menu is usually sufficient for the majority of our guests and I'm sorry you didn't find enough choice. I hope you choose to visit South Molton again and come to stay with us here at The George.

Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. All staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Food was good. The restaurant was closed on Sunday evening but we were provided with bar meals which were perfectly acceptable. In addition the location was perfect and South Molton is a charming little town

The hotel staff were very helpful with booking and being flexible. They were welcoming and the breakfast was good.
They kept the bar open for us on the first night until the early hours, but bizarrely, when it was the owners job to work the bar, it shut by 10.30.
The rooms were OK.
We may go back there next year when we tour but we'll look for alternatives first.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I would like to take this opportunity to apologise again to you for the closure of the bar before your return to the hotel on your second night's stay. Had I been aware of this as a requirement I would have arranged suitable late night cover. However I am pleased that my staff member stayed very late to cater for your needs on the previous night and that you found the booking process efficient and my staff helpful during your stay. We are often complimented about our food including the breakfasts and try hard to make your stay as comfortable and clean as possible. If you do choose to return again next year I will ensure that your needs are better met.
