Party of 13 for Mother's Day. Well looked after by the staff.Food a step above typical 4 Star hotel fare. Particularly liked the roast meals, with the meat sourced from a nearby farm. Reasonable value. Would recommend.

We really enjoyed our two night stay at the George. Nothing was too much trouble for the young staff who seemed to turn their hand to everything - with a smile. Breakfasts were particularly enjoyable with modern choices as well as full British. The decor in the bedroom was an inspiration and the bed supremely comfortable. Only negative thing was...

The hotel sits proudly in the centre of Shipston. It has 16 rooms of various sizes and cost. Room 5, our room is well appointed with a nice roll top bath. We ate in the restaurant and had the cod and the steak which were both perfectly prepared. Service was excellent

Came here for a birthday treat. It was busy, but the table we sat at hadn't been wiped down when it had been cleared. The service was reasonable, the food ordinary, over all, disappointed, won't be re visiting.

The George has had many incarnations over the last 25 years we have lived in Shipston. The latest being modernised by Brakspears Brewery. I understand the bedrooms are decorated to a high standard but a little pricey for the area. We went to the George a number of times since it re-opened but we found the food very average and...

What a fantastic experience. Smallish car park where a staff member greeted us and carried our bags to our room. Very Dickenseish. Lovely sofas. Log fires. Very happy obliging staff. We were, in a word, pampered. Our room was a little on the small side but adequate for three days, breakfast freshly prepared as were lunch time snacks. Dinner menu...

This was our 3rd visit to The George; the location is perfect for exploring lots of lovely Cotswold villages as well as places of interest. The hotel has been updated since our last visit and we were very impressed with our room and the facilities! It was beautifully decorated, well appointed and extremely clean.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The George has been around for as long as anyone can remember, but in early 2016 it was been treated to a huge makeover including all 15 en-suite bedrooms. Standing proudly in the centre of Shipston High Street, it still remains as the tallest building on the street at three and a half stories. We describe the look as modern yet sympathetic to it's late 18th century features with a feel of casual elegance about it. All the rooms are decorated to a high standard, offering a comfy place to stay. Their sophisticated simplicity gives them a luxurious feel. They all have en-suite bathrooms and breakfast is always included. The ground floor of the George Townhouse is spacious, and our extensive menu covers all meal times. Call in at the start of the day and enjoy a freshly cooked Full English breakfast in the parlour, or pop into our garden room to sample a sharing board and glass of wine over lunch. In the evening treat yourself to a steak in the pantry, sourced from Todenham Manor Farm just 4 miles away. ... more   less
