    Good

    The George is situated in a beautiful location, and has some wonderful suites and rooms, many of which my husband and myself have stayed in. It's a great location for historical, sights, also easy accessible for shopping in Newcastle, Metro Centre and not that far from Carlisle and of course Hexam and Corbridge. It has lovely gardens at the front overlooking the river, very picturesque.

    The George is getting very tired and is badly in need of a re-vamp, bathrooms need updated and repaired. New mattresses would be good also. The resteraunt should be al la carte to suit the status of the hotel, I feel the food choice lets it down. The Spa area could do with a spruce up as well. This hotel should be brought back to glorious self!

    The location is great and the staff were good. Car parking was not a problem as parking was avail on both sides of the hotel. The living flame gas fires were a warm welcome every time we returned from our daily outing and the chairs were comfortable to relax in.

    Some areas are in need of refurbishment or the reputation of 'The George' may be damaged. The menu for dinner could have had a little more choice, it was a limited menu in my view.

    The garden was a delight and the bed was comfortable

    evening meal cost 20 pounds and was not worth it. I could do gammon steak and veg for a fiver.

    Fabulous

    Staff,although not local,were very friendly and provided good service. They were obviously trained well in customer service.

    Some of the furnishings in the room although comfortable were obviously in tired condition. Fabric on chairs wearing outetc.

    Fabulous

    The location and friendly staff.

    The first evening main course was poor, as vegetables were fridge cold and had to be reheated. Also the roast potatoes were hard and inedible. The second night was much improved. We got the impression the meals were not cooked to order, but on the plus side it was value for money.

    Exceptional

    We only stayed the one night, so we did not have an opportunity to use the facilities which were there. The food was excellent value as we had the half-board package. The view and the gardens were a beautiful setting.

    No sugar in the custard!!! Lol

    Superb

    The George hotel is in a great location, the staff were very helpful and friendly, the food was excellent as were the spa facilities. We enjoyed a peaceful break and have rebooked for March 2012 and are bringing my parents who are also due to stay with you later this month. We have stayed 3 times now in the George and it just gets better, the refurbishment of the dining room and lounge and bar areas are excellent. The swimming pool area was also looking cleaner.

    The only small concerns I have were with the rooms,our bathroom sink had a large crack in it and the chairs looked dirty. The windows are dated and the bath surround had some mildew.

    The location is fantastic, the lounge areas are comfortable and welcoming. The restaurant was airy and light, with lovely views of the river. Our room had a great view - overlooking river and bridge.

    Staff were grumpy and unhelpful at times. The hotel was jaded and in need of refurbishment in some areas. Breakfast was very average. Leisure centre felt a little grimy and old fashioned - definitely in need of an upgrade

    Location was good.

    The bedroom was very average, the shower hanger was broken and the heating was not working (cold in the room). The bed was not very confortable and the tv channels really poor in terms of choice. Staff was ok , not really helpful with the luggage. Could have been better , will not return to this hotel as we thought the price was high for the quality of the bedroom and service.

    Good

    It is many years since I have stayed at the George, indeed not since it was owned by Swallow Hotels. Since then it has gone downhill and, in my opinion, downmarket. It is in urgent need of a thorough refurbishment and upgrade. Reception staff were fine but the dining room staff, because they spoke poor English, appeared rather brusque and verging on rude.
