I looked forward to staying at The I was looking forward to staying at The George but found it disappointing. For a luxury hotel costing this amount - it needs to be more special. Previously I have eaten at both restaurants & found them quite good however the food & service at breakfast was poor.

An awesome weekend - we couldn't fault it. Service was fantastic as always and made us feel very, very special. We can't wait to return next year and may even pop back sooner to treat ourselves to another fabulous breakfast.

The George was very nice. The staff was very attentive and the location was very good - less than 20min walk to the main areas of town. The bathroom was very luxurious with heated floors and auto-defog mirror - now that I've experienced heated floors I know what my next renovation project will be.

We stayed for one night here, and the hotel service was wonderful. All the staff were very friendly, and hotel had a nice charm about it. The room itself was modern and well maintained. No gym which is understandable for boutique hote but able to use gym at hotel Montreal, which was average!

The George was excellently placed and the overall feel was good. The receptionist was excellent, extremely helpful and responsive. We didn't use any other of the hotel facilities. Our stay was marred by our ground floor room overlooking the car park which had a distinctly damp odour. However, the room was well appointed and comfortable. The hotel was fully booked.

We stayed at The George following our looooong flight from the US. Had a great meal in the bistro and slept in one of the most comfortable beds I have ever experienced. Friendly staff was informative and helpful and the location can't be beat!

The Guest Ratings for this Hotel are a huge surprise to me. This Hotel is full of pretension - but fails at nearly every test. One receptionist! So you wait. Or get dragged over to the Concierge Desk. Rooms that no more special than a typical hotel room - not enough power sockets - and an irritating, over-active night light....

From our greeting by reception to the welcome from the manager, this is a superb, top notch hotel. The location is ideal, a short stroll to restaurants, shops, the museum and botanical gardens. It's opposite a park and we were fortunate to enjoy a beautiful, sunny day. The concierge was very friendly and pleasant, helping with bags, describing the room...
