The queen room was not too big or fancy, but clean and tidy. Worth the money especially considering its location within the city and easy access to the railway station and cabs. The restaurant staff and lobby staff were polite and helpful. Recommended for business travel

Very clean, basic furnishings, well presented, ideal for a traveller on a budget. Customer service was friendly and welcoming. 15 minute walk to Southbank or 5 minutes to the Mall. Ideal location. 2nd stay, and will be back again.

Stayed in the George Williams Hotel for 2 nights and can't rate it highly enough. Staff absolutely wonderful, extremely helpful including the restaurant staff. Rooms small but well appointed had everything we needed and spotlessly clean. Food in the restaurant was fabulous. Very central to everything will definitely stay again.

I spend four nights there recently. It is a decent place, in the heart of the city with minimum facilities. The place is a bit old, but, okay. Good value for the money. There are a plenty of restaurants around and the hotel has its own restaurant as well. So, I would recommend for a short stay.
