I stayed at The George again - and it was just as lovely. It is impressive when a small team manages to deliver time after time. More delicious food, charming service and an owner who says 'no problem' to almost any request. I was welcomed mid week and the huge candles in the hallway provided a warm glow to match....

A pleasant stay here in this centrally located and characterful hotel. The room was comfortable and clean, and the welcome friendly and genuine. Food was good too, including breakfast. Just some small details detracted. I felt the room was a little austere without pictures or much decoration - a bit cold and characterless. It was also a nuisance not to...

We had an excellent lunch for our staff last week. I was disappointed when they told us the day before that it would only be the Bar menu, but Mark and his chef made a great effort and put on some dishes from their new menu. Delicious! Thank you for your hospitality.

This is a small 'boutique' hotel - with a great future. In six months, under new ownership, it has changed into the warm and welcoming heart of this charming small market town. It has a perfect location. The downstairs space lends itself to being a hub: comfy chairs and sofas, a roaring log fire, excellent coffee and a great restaurant....

Thank you so much for our recent stay with you - we were here as a family, and Mark went to great lengths to accommodate us for a surprise late supper even though the restaurant was fully booked. Comfortable beds, excellent breakfast, really good value for money - we wish you all the best.
