        The George is a quaint and traditionally British hotel located in the centre of the town. The food is excellent and the staff are friendly. Access to the market town's local amenities (pubs and restaurants) is fantastic. The Club room was a little smaller than I expected but was spotlessly clean and the décor was light and fresh.

        I found the hotel to be very warm, especially at night.

        Friendly and polite staff, cleand and particularly comfortable room. Good English breakfast or if you did not want that a variety of cereals, fruit,cheeses and breads. Good service.

        It is an old building and some of the floors on the landing was on a slope as was the stairs

        The service in the restaurant wasn't too bad either. The new waitress that was on did a few things that could be fixed with more training. She picked up the drink glass from the top of rim and placed it on my table with fingermarks on it. I requested twice for sparkling and twice she bought a jug of water out. My main was the Lamb Chump and the pieces of meat that was on my plate was all fat. The dessert was a chocolate tart and it started off good but then discovered it was mouldy. Another table also sent the same dessert back - the kitchen and floor staff need to speak to each other. People could have gotten quite sick from the mouldy cake. I was still charged for the meal at the end of my stay.

        The Hotel is lovely and the staff were very on the ball and extremly helpfull and polite. The food was to die for. So what more could you want from good food, quality staff and a comfortable bed in a nice relaxed atmosphere. Heaven on earth!

        I have only one very small thing to say, but it did bug me and if I had been staying longer I would have felt the need to leave a note in my room. Whilst lying across the bed and looking through the open door into the bathroom. There was a line of scum / dirt between the basin and the upright pedistal it stood on. Every thing else and it needs to be said was perfect. Thank you.

        Very nice and charming atmosphere, a bit like entering an Agatha Christie setting. Friendly staff and good facilities.

        The room was cozy and interesting and the staff was friendly and helpful.. We enjoyed it very much. We caught a bit of quiz night and would have gone earlier if we'd had time.

        Calm atmoshere and friendly staff.

        Not really a complaint and the food was great - but - I was charged the £24 for a three course meal in the restaurant without being asked and I only had two courses. Having said that the service and staff were great.
