Reviewed 3 July 2016 via mobile

I stayed here with my mother and her partner. We'd only called the night before around 1am to book the room, John was very pleasant and helpful and we had a good old natter on the phone whilst I booked the room, he explained everything about check in, parking etc on the phone as we were travelling down from Glasgow. He also said he'd put a note that we wanted to check in early if possible on the Friday.

Arrived on Friday to be greeted by a lovely receptionist Kayleigh who told us that they'd have a room vacant within 30 minutes for us and took out luggage into storage whilst we went out to find a local shop. We came back and were showed to our room. We'd arranged to stay in a triple room as we're all females and only down for the weekend. Room 104 only had single beds and when we explained to kayleigh we'd ideally like a double and single she gave us another room without objection.

The new room, wasn't quite as spacious and I'd of arranged it differently myself personally, however it was freshly painted and clean. The downside was that any time the bathroom was used whether it be flushing the toilet, using the shower or washing your hands, the filter system I think it was, would make a God awful noise. Nick who was the receptionist after Kayleigh went home put us back into room 104 and had 2 lovely staff members give us a double and a single bed.

Absolutely cannot fault this hotel, all the staff members that I met, John, Kayleigh, Nick and a Polish receptionist that I didn't catch the name of were very friendly and accommodated to our needs. I'd definitely stay here again, just not in the room with the noisy water works.

i stayed at the George, and found the staff very polite and helpful. The building is old and has period features, as such you have to expect that it may not be as upto date in it's facilities as a modern Premier inn or other large hotel chain. But what you do get is character and lots of history to the building..

The rooms are decorated in an old style, to suit the building,This may not suit many people but it would look odd ( imo) if you stepped into an old building to find modern style decoration and modern fixtures and fittings.

I would like to praise one member of staff in particular NICK, who was on reception and running backward and forwards serving in the busy bar. The poor guy was running around doing several jobs at once (due to a lack of staff?), and helped everyone as best as he could.

Staff like him deserve a medal.

Room Tip: ask for NICK

My partner and I stayed here for a nigh while travelling around the UK. Staff was friendly but the rooms are in need of some TLC. We were unable to get any hot water that night however in the morning it was fine.
Its VERY basic, but if you are just after a bed for the night then its fine.
A short taxi ride from town - under 5 pounds.
Wifi was available however we had trouble connecting.

Well the hotel inspector would have a field day with this place!
The beautiful exterior building does not live up on the interior at all.
Thread bare carpets on the stairs with dated fixtures and fittings.
A lack of hot water and a very noisy water system besides.
People walking over the flat roof outside our room constantly and a strong smell of cigarette smoke too from somewhere.
Broken toilet seat. Shower head that squirted water everywhere around the compact bathroom. And the room was not really spacious.
Clean sheets and towels were the best of a bad experience.

Personally I would recommend the travelodge or premier inn locally rather than spend any money here unless they significantly improve the decor fixtures and fittings and general facilities.
The staff were lovely though not an issue with them at all just the quality of offerings for a £95 a night double room it was a joke!
Avoid at all costs.

Even though the night staff was a real good help as we had to move room and they provided us with another room straight away, the rooms where in a state of decay, if they decided to actually look after the rooms it would be such a nice hotel as the whole building is astonishing.
