Having drank at the George and Pilgrim on several previous visits to Glastonbury, I was eager to stay here, despite all the iffy reviews on here. In the end, we couldn't have been more delighted with our stay.
Initially slightly disappointed that we got allocated a room in the "newer" extension of the building, whereas our friends got rooms in the historic part of the pub, nevertheless our room was charismatically decorated, with similar antique-looking furniture to the older rooms and being at the back, was away from street noise. I think all the basic tariff rooms are quite small but for the price we paid, still found it great value for an historic hotel slap bang in the middle of town!
We had the previously mentioned Room 10, which amused us greatly to have the fire escape corridor running through the bathroom!
All the rooms have delightfully creaky floors and some of the older room floors are seriously sloping (our friend joked about his tea cup travelling across the bedside table at night in his room!) - but that's what you get when you stay in an ancient building! :-)
We found the staff/owners very friendly but with a no-nonsense attitude. Exactly what I'd expect from a pub-with-rooms. We happened to arrive ahead of schedule, 2 hours early but the landlady was at reception at the time and let us check in early. (note that contrary to older reviews, they no longer charge a £10 deposit for the remote control! It was still a bit surreal to be handed a remote control with our keys though)
We didn't eat in the bar on this occasion, so can't comment on the menu since the new ownership; however breakfast was lovely. They also served a fantastic local cider in the bar!
Public car park is just behind the hotel, is free from 6pm to 9am but £5.40 for over 4 hours outside these times. If you don't mind a short walk however, free on-street parking can be found just beyond the main town centre area.
All in all, a perfect, quirky stay in a suitably quirky town. :-)
