Great Break

Me, husband and dog have just returned from 3 night stay at George Hotel. We had a very relaxing time made all the better for good tasty food served by the most polite and friendly staff for which nothing was too much trouble. The location of the hotel is stunning and the gardens were nicely maintained. The leisure facilities were excellent and the pool just the right depth/warmth for a relaxing swim. Our bedroom was comfortable, and although a 'dog' room was not at all 'doggy'. Recommended.

A friendly experience

My friend and I spent 3 nights at the George and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. An excellent venue in a stunning location. The staff were very helpful and friendly in reception, the bar and dining room. My room was superb and spotlessly clean and well equipped. The food is the usual Shearings fare and was good. There is so much to see and do in the area. Just one groan but most certainly not a complaint, the bar prices were a bit on the high side. I would definitely return. Highly recommended.

Great Winter Break

Our room was first class and hotel staff were absolutely great, food excellent, Swimming pool and Gym was first class we used it every day we where there. Bar prices a bit pricey, we have been in lots of Shearing Hotels and I would say it's one of best hotels we would highly recommend this hotel, great for touring and walking. Well done The George Hotel.

Enjoyable stay, excellent value

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at The George and we really enjoyed our time in Northumberland. The Hotel is in a good position for visiting local sites and we found it comfortable and welcoming. Our room was a good size and the beds and bathroom were spotlessly clean. The food on the Table d’hôte menu was pleasant and to our taste. A major strength of The George is its staff who were friendly and efficient, excellent in all respects...We will certainly visit The George again.

An Enjoyable Stay

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. Although the furniture in the room was a bit dated the view from the window of the gardens and river was wonderful. Bathroom was clean with lots of hot water when needed. Food was great with a different menu each night and the staff were very efficient and helpful. Only fault was the TV did not work well.

The accommodation we had was comfortable, with the best bed we`ve ever had at a Shearings hotel. A definite plus. The room was a bit on the tired side but comfortable. We had a lovely view. The bar area was relaxing and the bar staff very friendly, which is nice. The meals were ok, the usual Shearings menu. We enjoyed it. We had problems with where to sit at meal times, there were four of us and we were moved around for two days! Finally we were left at one table. We`d go back, but by car.

A bit of a hidden gem

We enjoyed a super 4 night break and found it to be an excellent base for touring around and about the very attractive small villages. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and very inviting. The food was very much to our liking and we would find it hard to find fault. I guess the only thing I could come up with as a minus, is the creaking floorboards. Although we were not disturbed by it, there really were some mighty creaking’s along the corridors - hardly a complaint though. Quite lovely!

4 of us had a 4 night stay & thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Although some of the decor is rather 'tired' in some of the rooms, the hotel in general is very good. The staff were fantastic, from reception to the dining room, we couldn't find fault with their attitude. The pool, sauna, steam room & Jacuzzi were brilliant features. The only negative we could think of was the spoiling of the beef pie & roast beef dinners being served with a Bolognese type sauce instead of gravy ? Very strange !!!!!
