We enjoyed the friendly pub several times during our visit. Good selection of real ales and ciders but more important the kibd of genuine cordial vibe one hopes to find in a pub. Nice place to sit with a glass.

If you are planning to spend the day visiting the Dockyard (which is fab), then we would recommend this traditional little hotel completely because it is literally three minutes walk away from the entrance. But it's not just its location that makes it so good. The bar area is cosy and everyone makes you extremely welcome. It's the kind of...

What a place, we have visited several times and always get the same warm welcome, the bar reminds me of a pub from traditional days, barmaids who know their punters drinks from the 1st round, customers who talk together and appear to enjoy the relaxed ambience created by the staff. We ate a couple of times here too, food was...

The George hotel is a traditional little pub with 10 ensuite bedrooms. It's cosy and welcoming and the food was lovely. The portion sizes are very good too. You could call it a little dated but it is in keeping with the tradition and history of the building itself and the surrounding area. We wanted to stay somewhere that had...

Stayed here in early January in a "family room" with my wife and adult daughter. This particular room was large, clean; and the beds, etc. were fine. This is not a deluxe establishment, but perfectly adequate in all respects. For those interested -- as we were -- in viewing all of the nautical exhibits on the waterfront, this location was...

Stayed here for a few days to do some academic research and it proved a great base for the university, city centre and excellent for the historic dockyard as it's literally next door. The room was nice with all the expected amenities and plenty of tea/biscuits, not one or two of everything like you find in most hotels. Also included...

The booking was made and confirmed by the hotel mid December 2016. In mid January 2017 we have arrived to find that we do not have a room for 2 nights, but we can have it for a night if we want, as there is another booking for the second night. Meaning they preferred to honor the reservation made later...

Dear Pavlo K I am so sorry to hear that we were unable to honour your reservation. Please accept my heartfelt apology. Due to pure human error your reservation was put in the wrong date 14th February. I am sorry, but we did not realize that you were in for the Saturday and Sunday night. Due to mistakenly thinking that...

We had a 2 night stay here, it is a perfect location to stay for a visit to the Dockyards. The pub itself is warm and welcoming and obviously a popular spot for locals. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our rooms were at the back of the pub so there was no bar noise, just a bit of...
