Allocated THE most noisy room in the hotel (Rm120) with the stairwell outside the door and a very very noisy thoroughfare outside the windows, which were fully closed! Staff were delightful. Hotel is poor even with the cheaper room rates.

Obviously, being a historic coaching inn it was going to be somewhat old fashioned. The check in was reasonable and the staff were very nice. We did not dine in the hotel for dinner or breakfast and so cannot comment on this. The rooms were very nice and the hotel could not be more centrally located. Lovely staff!

Today I saw the demise of a lovely old grand lady of Reading. Closed it doors. I do sincerely trust and hope it reopens very soon. Has so much charm charisma and history. But, moreover, the people make it special from the endearing welcome of the GM to Philip on reception showing true Canadian Hospitality. Rico was a charmer full of the joys of life on reception as too our Albanian Bar tender. As I was sadly leaving a kindly housekeeping lady petite with ginger coloured hair wished me a special Bon voyage and carrying my luggage down to reception. Special memories indeed. Out of the Phoenix will rise the ashes!

Sadly when you stay at the George. I thought it was cheap. And thought it must be because of all the high end competition. Anyway, The Booking site said they did a “good breakfast” so I paid extra for that. It was after booking that the hotel revealed they do a “grab bag”. This is false advertising. I expected creaky floors etc from a building so old. We were actually in a 1970s annex. The room was hot, the layout was poor, cramped and it was uncomfortable. Some of the furniture was broken. The view was of a flat roof. The floor in the bathroom had an odd stain. Turned out the shower flooded the floor and that left a limescale stain. The staff, when available were helpful. I was so disappointed. The Premier Inn would have been on a par price wise and more comfortable.

Stayed in the George hotel for 2 nights and was very disappointed. Room very hot, had a fan but you could not leave it on overnight as too noisy. Air conditioning needed. Requested to move room but was told none available. Breakfast was very disappointing for £12.60 you got a box of cereals, muffin and small carton of orange juice. Would definitely not book a room with breakfast included if I knew this was what you were going to get.
