George and Pilgrims Hotel
Ranked #3 of 5 Hotels in Glastonbury
Reviewed 19 May 2015 via mobile

Visited September. .October 20th and March 2015. This is a fantastic and historic place ideally situated in the heart of Glastonbury overlooking the abbey.

You walk into the most amazing place when you go through the door... I love to sit in the window seat of the main bar area and imagine Henry VIII having done the same in the 16th century..as he actuality did.

I can't wait to go back again. Lovely food and people. ..

Stayed: May 2015, travelled with friends

I'm not sure what some of the reviewers on here thought they were booking, but this is an ancient building. It's been used as a lodging of various kinds (including for visitors to see the Abbot at nearby Glastonbury Abbey) since the 1400s. It still has many of its original features. Guys - this isn't 'tired' it's history! Not only that, we got a double room with four-poster bed, including breakfast, and change out of £90. What do people expect? It's genuine. It's real. Not a plastic replica. You have to accept that there will be a few creaks, uneven floors. It's lovely, and atmospheric and romantic. The only complaint I could possibly make is that the restaurant was slightly haphazard. We were planning to eat in, but a promised menu ("Chef's still writing it") took so long to turn up that we decided to go find somewhere else.

Room Tip: Treat yourself to a four poster bed for the full 'olde worlde' experience.

This hotel is situated in the centre of Glastonbury town, perfect location and right in the centre of all that is available locally. If you want "normal" (boring and stale), go elsewhere, Holiday Inn it isnt, but this place is full of character, and characters, windy staircases, historic rooms and all in the spirit of a haunted 14th century hotel. The bar always seems to be busy and the food is excellent English fare.
OK, parking is at the back and easy to find once you know, but that's the magic of Glastonbury. Nearby is the Tor, and the Abbey ruins of course, as well as several other visitor sites, then there is the Clark's retail park at Street, for retail therapy. An excellent stay which we fully enjoyed, thanks to Wendy and her team.

Room Tip: King Henry's with the four poster

The hotel is perfectly located at the city centre, and has a very interesting atmosphere. There is a public parking place at the back of the hotel, so it was easy to find a place to leave the car. The room was good, but the chair in the room was damaged, making it impossible to seat on it. The bathroom was ok, we found it to be a bit smelly, but nothing very serious. Besides these minor flaws, it was a pleasant stay. The breakfast was delicious!

A few comments saying this place has potential to be something special hits the nail right on the head. It has character and intrigue, but its tacky and looks tired. Also the walls are so thin that you can really hear the people talking in the next room (or above/below, you couldn't tell) and it's not just mumbling either, but every word of the conversation!

And it didn't begin too well; our room wasn't made when we arrived (at 9pm!) so we were upgraded to the Henry the Eighth room which has a unique four poster bed. As mentioned, this could be a really great room along with the hotel but little things like horrible curtains, a cupboard without handles and holes in the carpet really bring it down.

However the staff were friendly and the breakfast was great (2 things I noticed were main gripes here), so was pleasantly surprised about those aspects. Overall good for a night but definitely wouldn't advise longer.

Room Tip: Bring ear plugs
