We booked an overnight stay at The George Hotel in Piercebridge after a recommendation. We got a deal for £100 which included a 3 course evening meal, bed & breakfast! From the outset it seemed like a bargain. All looked great on the website, when we arrived we were initially impressed with the appearance and location of the hotel. Things...

We visited this place a few years ago and it was really nice, yesterday however it was anything but. I ordered a salad to start, then half way through to my absolute horror I found myself crunching on a piece of plastic which resembled a plastic tooth pic. I immediately raised this with the waitress and was told, "we don't...

A nice location to visit to have a hushful read on a midweek afternoon. If it's warm you can sit beside the river while reading your newspapers or on a balcony that overlooks the Tees with a scenic view of the lovely surroundings.

Ageing hotel in idyllic setting but really needs some money spent and some TLC hotel staff not very friendly or experienced imo won't be staying there again. The rooms are very tired and need decorating

Sunday 9th April Took immediate family and relatives visiting from Scotland. In restaurant we were seated at 2 tables cobbled together. They were marked, and had seen better days.No cloth provided, which might have helped. The napkins were so thin as to be useless. The food was mediocre. I was extremely embarrassed. I would have complained at the time, but...

The George is set in a fantastic position overlooking the Tees. The views from the dining room are stunning. We came on a Travelzoo deal, which gave us very favourable rates. Room was clean and comfortable. Food was excellent, especially the smoked fish and poached eggs for breakfast. The only drawback is that we chose a weekend when there was...

Came on a Travelzoo deal to break up the weekend. Fantastic position on the river and great things to see in the locality. The staff were good, especially the chap at breakfast with tattoos, a service master who made sure everyone had what they wanted. The room was very clean and well presented. I think the place has a fantastic...

We had a very pleasant stay at pierce bridge with a lovely meal. The view down to the tees was great as it was a lovely sunny evening only spoilt by loud and obnoxious large group of lads. Liam who served us was lovely! Girl at the bar seemed a bit undertrained.
