We booked by phone having searched on line for a hotel in Shipston. Recently refurbished we were very pleasantly surprised by the overall standard. We arrived early for check in and left the car, at the rear of the hotel, in their private car park. The staff made us welcome and we changed to cycle for the afternoon. On our...

We stayed for two nights and can't thank the staff enough for their friendly care and attention. They made our stay special. We had a spacious room overlooking the main street, smartly decorated and with an excellent shower room. A comfy chair would be nice, but otherwise had everything you need. We ate in the restaurant and enjoyed especially the...

We have stayed a night in this lovely place. The young lady who checked us in couldn't find the key to our room. She gave us the spare key saying the last occupants must still have the key! Not a great start and didn't make me feel the room was secured. The room is lovely boutique style and perfect for...

Dear Debra S, Thank you very much for your comments, i will follow this up with the team here.

As a family we go up to The Cotswolds every Easter and more recently we have been trying many of the new locations that have been springing up or the old locations that have been done up. The George Townhouse is a brilliant example of the latter. The meal and location were simply stunning, and as good as any top...

Positively the best cocktails ever and you don't have to apply for a mortgage to taste them. The breakfast was excellent, the dinner really very good and the ambiance just so enjoyable. You get such a feeling of welcome and inclusivity from everyone here. Locals mix with visitors and we all share to enjoy. The evenings are themed and we...

We had paid for an upgrade and it was a great large room with a bay window overlooking the high street in this pretty town so one could sit and watch the world go by! Park early in the car park as it soon fills up. Street parking available and seems safe. Large modern shower with "rain"and hand held showers...

We stayed here for a couple of nights after getting married, we wanted somewhere to relax and this hotel definitely provided that! Beautiful bedroom, with a very comfortable bed.

Yet another good evening spent with friends in the George. Very good food and drinks but unfortunately let down by service. Bar staff ignoring me because I was at one end (about 8 feet away) from three of them and serving the people that walked up straight in front of them.. that's basic and poor. We all enjoyed our starters,...

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
