The George is a friendly family run pub with guest rooms. We had room 5. A well presented warm double room with ensuite facilities, complimentary toiletries along with well supplied tea and coffee making facilities were provided. All of this for £36.00 per night. A hearty well cooked traditional fried breakfast with toast and coffee at £6.70 per person. A... More

Stayed on a Friday night. So, to be fair, it was a bit noisy. That said, it's busy with locals that goes to show something is right with this place or they would stay away. The rooms are clean and comfortable and have everything you would expect for a budget price. Those expecting the Ritz at £35 a night will... More

Room was clean but the windows need a paint. There was a card night in the bar below the my room which did not finish until late so the room was noisy until well past eleven. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The George does not do food on Monday or Tuesday nights (which you should be told at... More

We stopped at the pub(not hotel) for lunch on our way to Corby. My friend and I ordered the all-day breakfast which was good value. It was freshly cooked and came with stacks of toast. The food was enjoyable and the landlady and staff were very pleasant and obliging. The only thing to let it down was the pub part... More

Each time we've stayed at the George we've stayed in room 5, the double room. The stay itself is lovely as you're in staying in an old pub :) You don't hear the loud drunk men in the pub below at all. You occasionally hear the smokers but seeing as we're smokers ourselves this didn't bother us. The bed is... More

This was a one-night stop in between seminars in different locations the weekend of 28th/29th November, 2015. £35 for one night, single bed. The positives are that I was welcomed, service was efficient and the room was sufficiently spacious and comfortable. Chocolate chip cookies are always welcomed! On the other hand, I was reminded of the scene in Tony Hawkes... More

Stayed for 4 nights here. Nice hotel and perfectly located for our fishing trip to Anglian waters. Only downside was that although its advertised as providing evening meals it doesn't. This meant having to use takeaways for 4 nights.

We had friends stay over and decided to take the short walk for breakfast... Excellent service, with generous portion sizes and great value for money. Will certainly be doing this again when we have friends stay over night...

We stayed in room 5 which was basic but had an on suite shower room. My wife and I found the bed to be one of the most comfortable we had ever slept in. Breakfast was very relaxed there was no set time and you simply ordered and paid for what you wanted. They cooked it fresh and as you... More
