The `George` is certainly not an `Hotel`, `Old Coaching Inn` would be more appropriate.
There are no `Residents Only` areas except for the dining rooms, which I must say are outstanding. There were several minor issues with our room;
Neither of the radiators could be controlled. the thermostats were broken. There was only one security bolt on the outside door. The other was broken. The extractor fan in the bathroom did not work. Only half of the light bulbs were working. The chandelier did not work at all. I appreciate these points are relatively minor and could easily be corrected with regular maintenance. However, over a period they become a nuisance.
Lovely hotel, great staff and beautiful area
We loved our stay at the hotel.
Staff was so friendly, room was big with beautiful features and the pub was lovely
staying away for work
The room was ok .
It was clean and tidy. Food menu was basic but the food was excellent . for me breakfast could have been served from six thirty not seven but the food was again excellent.
Back room has becime tired/ refurbishment due
The rear room (10) had a loo flush which was not quite right.
With a bit of care it then worked. Curtains with damaged track. Decor generally looking tired. We have stayed previously and the front rooms are much better. We had an out of season (reduced) rate, so this room was still reasonable value for our overnight stay. A beautful old coaching house and Dorchester on Thames is a delight place to visit. Breakfast was excellent.
On arrival we were impressed with the look of the hotel but the reception was situated in a very small cramped area.
Our room was quite basic & had abit of a musty smell to it. It was obviously one of the cheaper rooms but reflected what we paid for the night. It became very hot & stuffy during the night & had to have the window wide open all night for some air. The valentines meal was nice but grossly over priced. Some of the staff were friendly & quite helpful but others not so much especially one of the gentleman who was present at breakfast who was positively miserable.
Nice area and room but let down by lack of cleanlines.
nice enough cozy room in nice surroundings but was let down by the lack of friendliness from staff and the lack of cleanliness in our room.
There was hair in the bath and the teaspoon I went to use to make tea was really dirty and had dried food all over it.
Very clean and comfortable historical coaching inn.
We came back to the George having enjoyed a comfortable break there in March last year.
This time we stayed in the main building in a very clean and comfortable room. We ate in the restaurant every night of our stay as the food was very good and real value for money. There is also a good choice of real ales and fine wines to suit most palates. Situated across the road from Dorchester Abbey the hotel has good links to Oxford, Reading and Newbury. A really nice place to hang your hat.
The George Hotel
This is a thoroughly nice place to stay, the staff were polite and friendly, the room far better than I could have wished for and the food really good.
OK for the money
David and Cheryl New Years Eve at The George
We both enjoyed the stay overall, our second stay at the hotel.
It was New Years Eve and were looking for somewhere with character quieter than a town and just to be taken out of our modern surrounds. The booking achieved this. The rooms, restaurant, bar are well see decorated and were clean.
The only gripe is about the price of the NYE menu and speed of service which was too quick. The menu had no prices on it and when we enquired they said £50 for three courses. We only wished to have two courses and choose the cheaper dishes. Anyway eventually the offer of £30 for two courses including a glass of wine was fair enough. The menu starter and dessert choices in the NYE menu were quite limited. The quality of food was good. Other guests next to us kept saying they, their room and the food was cold. Overnight our room was very hot so I opened the window, we did both struggle to sleep though. All the above however I think was down to the particular circumstances rather than a usual experience.
