Lovely old place with real character/beautiful garden.
Well run with excellent food. Hosts very pleasant. Will definitely stop again on this route out.
The George & Dragon
All lovely apart from the traffic noise from the road sadly.
But have recommended lunch and meals to friends and family.
I travel a lot, for work and pleasure so I like to explore character properties for future reference as an alternative to the chains which can be great but a little soul destroying after 50 or so nights a year.
I chose the George and Dragon on reviews, looks and its proximity to the Caen flight, and am so glad I did. The inn itself is full of character, the staff very friendly and the room extremely comfortable even if a little basic (room 2); above the bar, you can hear the gentle conversation from below, but its not intrusive, and with such a comfy bed, sleep comes quickly. Room 2 isnt en suite, so heavy fluffy robes are provided for modesty in case ofmother guests, and there is ground coffee and selection of teas available on the landing area. TV is small, but really guests should go down to the bar, enjoy the fantastic food and chat with thenstaff or locals then enjoy an early night. Breakfast is great, and the landlord a really nice guy to chat with. To be fair, I could have stayed for lunch as well if id had the time.
The room was so basic.
The bed was comfortable, but due to the metal construction it creaked everytime you moved in it. Tea and coffee facilities were located in the communal coridor. Most of the mugs provided were dirty. The room was seperate to the toilet, shower and sink, therefore having to walk past other guests to get to the shower etc. The food was very good and the service efficient, however, I almost laughed at the size of the portion on the plate- it would not have fed a small child, so we resorted to a large bag of crisps in the room after the meal as we were still hungry. Unfortunatly we had to cut our stay one day short due to a birth in the family. We requested a refund for one day, expecting to at least get the next days breakfast knocked off if nothing else. We were charged the full price which we felt was rather mean.
The best nights sleep in a hotel rom in months
Very friendly and welcoming staff and clientele in this rural English Hotel the most comfortable Hotel bed I have slept in, in months will very likely stay there again in the future.
Wonderful Wiltshire Welcome
The welcome & subsequent service was exemplary.
The bar & restaurant were full of character and cosy ambience. Our evening meals were excellent as were our breakfasts. There were a few minor compromises that have been made with the room ( separate private bathroom & tea-making on the landing ) to incorporate modern facilities into such an old coaching inn. My only negative comment is that the lighting was poor in our room ( the monstrous lampshade didn't help ) but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wish our hosts (or should that be g-hosts) every success at the George & Dragon.
Comfort in an old inn
I stayed on a Sunday night when the pub/restaurant was closed.
I was asked to phone when I arrived and was checked in almost straight away. The room was comfortable and the nearby loo/shower room was very clean, well-appointed and well-stocked. There was also a fridge and the necessaries for tea/coffee on the landing. Breakfast was truly delicious, with toast, croissants, coffee, juice and cereal, not a 'full English'. The road outside was a little busy in the evening but not at night and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Apparently the restaurant is good and probably this is their main business.
Quaint building with plenty of character and staff were exceedingly friendly and accommodating once they finally found my booking.
We were in room 2 which has a lot of character but was a bit upset to find that a private bathroom was a shower room across the public hall which was a bit inconvenient but manageable.
Restaurant may be of good quality but didn't have what we wanted when we ordered as they had run out. Breakfast in the morning was nice and staff were engaging and friendly but having to pay extra for a full English was not mentioned in the description. Overall reasonable quality but I'm afraid I had a far better stay at a local b&b round the corner a week earlier.
