S.k. Business - 12/02/2018
« Dissapointed »

The building is very old so no surprise a the uneven floor, but the bedroom was very small with a bed against a wall. The tea making was hidden away in a draw and the bathroom toiletries were poor. Having a drink in the bar, the barman said the bar was 'shut' but still provided a drink to someone 15 mins later.

« Average, poor facilities »

Hotel was adequate for a one night stay but I would not choose to come back. The room had a few flaws, nothing that was a huge problem, just a lot of small inconveniences, such as: Door has an inside lock, but it was not functional, leaving me feeling vulnerable as a single female. Shower screen was ineffective and flooded the bathroom floor. TV was in a position that was not really in view of the bed and there was no comfortable seat. TV remote did not work and TV signal was very poor. Wifi signal was weak in my room which was at the far end of the hotel - not ideal for business travellers. No plug sockets beside bed. Mattress was extremely soft and therefore uncomfortable - gave me backache.

I usually have a good stay at the George but this time I had to complain about the bedding , being marked , reception were very good and it had been changed ,but it seems quite worn , you need to replace It , with new stock. Also I slipped up in the shower due to the bath being slippery and water not draining away . I wasn’t hurt ,as I managed to save myself . I wasn’t asked to fill in an accident form, I am seventy years old , also my room wasn’t cleaned by the time I had returned at two thirty , which meant I had to go out again ,

« Extremely satisfied with the accommodation and services. Only the cafeteria service or menu was left out or not shown. »

WiFi, TV, heating, some confectionery were adequate. Only a bottle of drinking water was left out.

Greeting at reception was friendly. Room was cold on arrival as the radiator was turned off. Nice quiet room and comfortable bed. Breakfast was disappointing and the waitresses were quite miserable and not at all welcoming.

« Excellent »

Staff were very pleasant and helpful- we arrived after 23:00 but there was still a receptionist present which was great. Our room was very clean & quiet with everything we needed in it. At breakfast there was a fantastic range of food available & again the young woman could not have been more helpful. The atmosphere of this historical building was lovely. Thank you.

« Most Unique Hotel Stay I've had in years »

This was such a unique hotel. With this being my second trip to England, it was very interesting to stay at a hotel that had been around since 1506. The location was convenient to the train station and close to great food and pubs. On the downside, the shower was cramped and hard to use, the stairways and hallways were a bit sketchy, and it was interesting sleeping on a single bed. However, the staff was friendly and accommodating.

« Nice Hotel, friendly staff »

Great location, friendly staff and easy check in. Had dinner in the bar, prawn cocktail to start which was a little too vinegary for my taste and chicken tikka musala for main which was spicy but nice. The room was clean and well presented, bed comfy but pillows very hard which made it difficult to sleep.

Good Central Location, spacious clean room, although a bit of a rabbit warren in getting to the room (got lost a few times & difficult carrying luggage)

« Disappointing »

Arrived to beautiful looking hotel, got to room which was nice size. Only to find our bathroom door did not shut, no tea or coffee facilities and for £70 a night find this very disappointing.

« Comfortable room and friendly service »

On arrival we were upgraded to a superior room which was a lovely surprise. We have stayed at this hotel before, and on entering the room, we could not see anything that made the room superior. In fact, it was quite small. However, it was very comfortable and we were happy with it. You need to have a phone to get into the building late at night as there is a number to call. Breakfast had a good amount of choice and a gluten free option which had been a problem for me before. The cooked parts of the breakfast were pretty tasteless, but overall I was so grateful there was a gluten free option that I enjoyed it. All staff were very friendly and welcoming and we would be happy to stay again.
