Very helpful, friendly staff - who were well used to dealing with stressed-out and/or exhausted wedding parties! We didn't have much time to appreciate the area on this visit, but we will aim to return some day and The George will be our hotel of choice.
I was warned in advance that the kitchen would not be available on Wednesday but we came down for breakfast on Thursday ( when all was promised to be back to normal) and got the response "you must be joking" If I am paying for bed and breakfast don't think it is asking too much for cereal and toast even if a cooked breakfast was not available. No refund was offered. Neither had they got the booking correct putting both of us in one room rather than two. Not impressed.
It was unique and full of interesting places to sit and relax. The best beer garden ever, right by the Tees. Great food, friendly staff, fantastic breakfast and real value for money.
It's a small thing but a door somewhere in the annexe tended to slam when people came through it late at night and early morning. It woke me up once or twice. A bit of investigation and a slow close device would fix this. But everything else was just grand. I would recommend unreservedly.
Beautiful setting. Rooms clean and comfortable. Excellent breakfast.
Staff at breakfast. Not particularly friendly, in fact the girl taking our order didn't even speak, just stood next to the table with a pad and pen in her hand.
Lovely location. Nice friendly atmosphere at Hotel which I appreciated as I was travelling alone. Special mention to the en-suite bathrooms - very large and well appointed.
There wasn't anything I didn't particularly like, apart from Breakfast Service being a bit chaotic on my last day as there appeared to be only one member of staff serving and unable to cope with the volume of guests and requests,everything else was good.
I found the hotel very easily. There was ample parking, the staff very friendly and the rooms very comfortable.
Just one niggle and that the shower was very small but it did serve it's purpose.
Friendly, helpful staff. Historic building with great atmosphere. Very good food at very reasonable prices. But best of all is the location: you can eat in the light and pleasant dining room with a perfect view of the beautiful River Tees and the historic bridge, or take your drinks onto the hotel's own little island.
The room was very nice. It was clean and spacious. The grounds are lovely, overlooking the river and the village itself is very pretty.
The breakfast and the service at breakfast were poor. This hotel has so much potential because of its good location. Let's hope the new management help it to fulfil this.
It was in a good location with good views of the river. The history of the hotel we found very interesting. We would'nt hesitate in using the hotel again or recommending to others.
We found the menu rather expensive and not enough choice.
Relaxed atmosphere in bar in evening. Good food for evening meal. Room well presented.
If you didn't want a cooked breakfast (which I didn't), the selection and quality of alternative food (namely the croissants)) was poor.
There were Spanish waitress and waiter that did actually take good care of us everything went smoothly as they were hard workers and very nice people. That's what a good hotel is all about! ;)
Lovely hotel with some amazing views around the countryside. Clean rooms and friendly and attentive staff.
The only thing I would say wasn't great was the fact it was particularly cold the night we stayed and the room was artic when we woke up. An extra bed cover or thicker duvet or even double glazed windows would benefit some of the rooms.
Very good value for money. Very friendly and helpful staff. Room was spacious and clean - I would certainly consider staying at the George next time I travel to the Darlington / Durham area.
Good location, friendly & helpful staff, Good food in Bar / Restaurant.
Rooms a bit dated but clean and comfortable.
The reception staff were very welcoming and friendly and even walked me to my room. The room was very comfortably and of a very high specification - particularly for the price. I would have like to have tried the bar\restaurant. It felt like the perfect village pub\restaurant to relax in after a hard day.
Parking was just off a reasonably busy main road - across from the pub. I think there was some around the back of the hotel but didn't see it until after I had checked in.
