We stayed here last night as we were in the area for a friend's birthday. The hotel is a real coach inn, charming and very homely. Chantel on reception is a gem, assisting us with such efficiency when booking a taxi to and from the venue (late) and generally just being great. We were in Rm11, which us on a...

To be fair, they don't claim their food is 'home-cooked'. Just as well, because it wasn't. I didn't think anyone used Smash any more; I certainly don't expect to be served it in a public restaurant. I suspect the Beef Stew was out of a tin - all the pieces of beef were identically sized tiny cubes about the size...

The salad was a Caesar salad which consists of baby leaf salad, croutons, parmesan cheese and dressing which was all present on the plate when you ordered the salad. The beef stew is made from roasted sirloin which is cut by a chef who strives for perfection which is why the cubes of meat are a similar size. The sauce...

The staff were very polite and helpful. Bar area comfortable. Not a great first impression though as you walk through the door with the cooking smells. Reception area is very unwelcoming and more than basic. No heating in room and bathroom very dated with mould on the wall. Some much needed tlc would make this a much more comfortable property....

Booked a double room, when checking in the room offered was a twin. I informed the desk clerk and my room was changed to a room outside near the parking area. This room heating was not working so my room was again changed to a 3rd room. Upon entering the room it smelled very odd but I was tired and...

Stopped here for a drink mid Sunday afternoon on a family walk. Disappointed with the drinks. Glass of Chardonnay was clearly from and old already opened bottle and tasted like white wine vinegar. Then to top that, flat coke from another already opened bottle. Not good at all.

The George hotel is a old inn right in the center of Dorchester. The building is very old; my room was right on the courtyard, very small, basic furniture. Wifi did not work. In the pub there is a good atmosphere; staff is very friendly. Breakfast room is cosy but the breakfast itself just ok. Parking is available, though a...

Booked this Inn last minute and we were not disappointed. Arrived just after 2pm on Saturday afternoon and we were made very welcome by the landlord. Had a couple of drinks sitting in front of the wood burning stove. Our room no 18 was outside in the old stable yard. Very cosy with a comfortable bed, TV, and tea tray...

Walked dog, and decieded to have a pub Sunday lunch before a 4 hour drive. The Sunday Roast was good, the pork was really tasty with fantastic crackling and good gravy. Luckily it was a sunny day, even if it was a bit cold, but had to have lunch outside as dogs are not allowed in this pub. So even...

I stayed for one night on a business trip, I had stayed once some years ago, so chose again, The hotel was better than I remembered and was really good. Its a very old coaching inn retaining most of its original character, but very comfortable and good quality throughout. The reception was friendly and efficient, the room was large, a...

“If you like bells, then ask for a front facing bedroom. For quiet, then maybe a rear facing or courtyard bedroom would best suit you.”
