What our patrons say

The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. Our room was very modern, clean & comfortable. Breakfast was a standard buffet with a good menu of cooked choices (some of which are charged as extra). The hotel is right opposite the park with the botanical gardens and a 15 minute walk from the city centre.

As soon as you walk in you feel the weight on your shoulders lift.

Love it here. If you want amazing service, great location and awesome rooms then this is the place for you. I love coming to stay here when I am visiting family. The beds are so comfortable and the blackout curtains are great to help with a good nights sleep. The staff are lovely and it's nice to see the same faces when returning to The George.

Amazing Service! Staff were very friendly and accommodating. I was given a bike to see the city. Staff showed me how to use it and helped me plan my day. My room was very tidy and well presented with an amazingly comfortable bed.
