We arrived very early, for a wedding later that day, but were delighted to find our room already prepared for us (an upgrade even). Staff were charming and most helpful; the room exceeded expectations, large and stylishly decorated with a spacious bathroom (bath and shower) and a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was enormous and delicious.Everything was just as it should...

Lovely break at this recently refurbished town house, great friendly staff always willing to help in any way. Bedrooms are comfortable with everything you need the only thing I would say is at this time of year the radiators aren't too efficient but think they must know this as there was an additional heater in the room....we did stay at...

We went for dinner to be greeted by polite and friendly staff. Although they were all young, they were very professsional. The food was fantastic and, considering it was a Saturday evening, didn't take long to arrive. Lovely atmosphere. Didn't get round to trying the cocktails. Next time!

A lovely place with a great atmosphere. The staff were helpful and knowledgeable about the menu and the service was good too. The food was delicious and varied, with loads of gluten free options, which was why we chose to stay there.

Wow, fab hotel, lovely food, great bar and location...awesome breakfast...and a perfect location to visit the Cotswolds Distillery. Can't recommend it highly enough. Staff were really friendly..and hard working and the bar had a great variety of gins to continue on from the gin tasting at the distillery!

I took my daughter and two year old granddaughter, for an informal Monday lunch, and we were very impressed by the pleasant service, food and ambiance. Obviously a lot of money has recently been spent making this a very pleasant place to stay, eat or have an informal coffee. I recommend it!

After being highly recommended for Sunday lunch, we thought we would try it for ourselves. The initial greeting and welcome we received was very good, but things went awry following that. Our order was brought to the table and it was immediately obvious that the three thin pieces of pork looked very dry and when tasted proved to be exactly...

We had a lovely stay. The room was large, modern and had everything you needed. Bed was comfy. My husband had an accident in the shower with the shower head which resulted in his face being cut.

We stayed here for a few days over new years with some friends and had a great time. The George Townhouse offers everything - accommodation, pub, restaurant - so it is an ideal place to stay for a couple of days. The rooms were lovely, clean, light and ours had a gorgeous bath. Would definitely recommend this place to others.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The George has been around for as long as anyone can remember, but in early 2016 it was been treated to a huge makeover including all 15 en-suite bedrooms. Standing proudly in the centre of Shipston High Street, it still remains as the tallest building on the street at three and a half stories. We describe the look as modern yet sympathetic to it's late 18th century features with a feel of casual elegance about it. All the rooms are decorated to a high standard, offering a comfy place to stay. Their sophisticated simplicity gives them a luxurious feel. They all have en-suite bathrooms and breakfast is always included. The ground floor of the George Townhouse is spacious, and our extensive menu covers all meal times. Call in at the start of the day and enjoy a freshly cooked Full English breakfast in the parlour, or pop into our garden room to sample a sharing board and glass of wine over lunch. In the evening treat yourself to a steak in the pantry, sourced from Todenham Manor Farm just 4 miles away. ... more   less
