There is a big board outside the hotel advertising it for auction in late November. On enquiry I was told that the owner had died. The hotel is in need of management as far as the finer things go. The breakfast is poor - staff not attentive, tables not properly laid, cookers tripping and most importantly a really poor inadequate...

Accommodation is superb. Conference facilities are absolutely fantastic. If you could accommodate more people I would not even consider other venues ever. The food is great. Each staff member is dedicated, friendly and helpful. Nothing is ever too much or impossible.

I stayed for one night one a business visit. The exterior is quite pleasing and the location is very central in a most beautiful town. The room is spacious, though average in decor. The choice of tv channels was quite limited. I struggled to get the wi-if going. For me this is an entry level requirement, especially when on business....

A very good option for business or personal travel. Check-in was quick (a plus after travelling a number of hours), room is modern, everything functions well and spotlessly clean. Staff was friendly and accommodating around a business meeting in the dining area.

A very nice comfortable hotel. Very easy to locate. Room was basic but comfortable. Restaurant was good - food came out quite quickly. As we had a rental car it was great that secure parking was available. The staff were friendly and accommodating. Room was quiet. This was a good value for money hotel. We would stay there again.

Well situated close to the main thoroughfare through George, yet in a fairly quiet spot. Nice interiors, good service, good price. Good value. Also offers secure parking out back. Spacious lounge and decent breakfast buffet.
