5/5 Excellent

Travelled with family
Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Generally we liked everything, though lots of items, the bathroom for example was what we would call 'tatty' doubtless because you have been closed due to Covid for lengthy periods this year and last. Thus repainting has not been able to be done. Sleeping was good, not least because Elizabeth was able to have sheets and blankets rather than a duvet.....exactly as we requested in fact. Good. But we loved being there and the setting is wonderful. You may indeed suffer the doubtful pleasure of seeing us again!! Breakfast was excellent.

This is a very tired hotel, the staff were nice but the service was terrible. Don’t stay at this hotel if you don’t have to.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
On arrival the property looked a bit tired. The outlook , however, was lovely with seating outside by the river. The bedroom was comfortable although in need of painting. The room wasn’t cleaned or items replenished on day two. That wasn’t a problem as I was able to get tea bags etc at reception and cleaning isn’t really required on a two night stay. The swimming pool was closed during our entire stay, we should have been advised of this prior to arrival. We didn’t even get an explanation or apology on arrival at reception and only discovered as we looked around the hotel. Breakfast in the hotel was ok. The staff appeared to be inexperienced but were pleasant and willing to help. Delays in cooking buffet food held up the process a little. We decided not to eat evening meals at the George Hotel and had a pleasant 15 minute walk to The Crown pub where we had a lovely meal.

Expedia took extra money for a breakfast that was included in the hotel prices. Look out for that scam. Also hotel tried to charge me twice for an evening meal.
