Disgusting that The George car park has an automatic number plate reader. Parked there at 6:30 in the evening and it cost me £61.80 (that was even the early payment!). Just moved to the area, certainly won't be receiving my custom!

We stayed here for one night.

It looked as though the room we were allocated had been recently decorated? It was in a contemporary style and had all of the 'mod-cons'. It was also good that the room was on the quieter side of the hotel (away from the 'main' Barnstaple road).

Although there is what I would guess be a busy bar area downstairs, the noise did not transfer to our room.

The staff were professional throughout.

The breakfast was served in the restaurant adjoining the bar and it was adequate for our needs. The 'mod-cons' had extended to the restaurant with coffee brewed and served from an expensive looking machine.

My only issue was the night rate - it seemed to be a little excessive?

Just returned from this lovely B&B and the positives are : lovely staff nothing to much trouble.. rooms good with very comfortable beds and linen excellent. Decor lovely and bathroom well equipped with nice touches of body lotion etc.unfortunatley all this is overshadowed by the breakfast experience.. it's like staying in 2 different places.. had to wait 50 minutes for breakfast which on arrival was less than good... overdone eggs and very basic. In this part of the country good produce is plentiful and we were very disappointed with both the quality and service... more joined up service would have made our stay much better... would we stay again? Not unless the breakfast experience improves

The food side of things promised a lot but sadly delivered little except an overall experience which had shades of a Fawlty Towers episode.The bedrooms were well equipped but with no air conditioning and when the window is open the traffic noise is very loud especially towards the front of the hotel.

We arrived on a Sunday evening and having called ahead they agreed to stay open a little later than their normal 7 p.m. service close time which was very much appreciated by us as we'd had a long journey.

We were greeted warmly and car parking, which is in a public car park opposite the hotel (space can be limited at busy times) was free to guest and easily arranged with the hotel which again was appreciated.

After a quick shower and drink we sat down and ordered two rib-eye steaks and two sirloin steaks each with prawns and asked for a bottle of Merlot which on the wine menu was highlighted as a personal recommendation by the owner. We were disappointed to be informed two minutes later that there was only one rib-eye so the two guys tossed a coin and the loser chose a sirloin steak instead. Imagine our surprise when the waitress returned again and then told us that there were only two sirloins left. To add to our amazement the bar manage then came along and informed us that the recommended wine we had ordered was really hard to get and she couldn't ever remember having a bottle in so we couldn't have that either!

At that stage we gave up the uneven battle to get fed and went next door to enjoy a fish and chip supper and some decent wine for a very reasonable price.

The following morning we needed a reasonably early start so were pleased to see that breakfast was served from 8 a.m. Again imagine our surprise on coming down at eight the following morning to find the pub locked and in total darkness. We gave it 10 minutes and then went down again with the same result. However, this time we decided to look outside and sitting on the doorstep was the breakfast chef who asked if the pub was now open and unlocked!

A waitress did eventually arrive with keys and when breakfast was served to us the food was good as it was the following morning (on time too!). The breakfast chef did a good job.

In fairness hotel the manager did reduce our bills a little because of the poor experience and customer service which was appreciated. Would I stay again, probably not as the overall experience was so far below what the website promises that it was disappointing.

Room Tip: Pick a room at the rear to avoid traffic noise.

Nice looking pub/accommodation. Bright, airy and comfortable. There is no heating or air conditioning in the rooms so, if you don't mind being woken by the heavy traffic in the mornings you can of course open the window, in summer that is!
Warm welcome on arrival however, despite a large sign outside the front door stating dinner served until 9:30pm this is not the case on Sundays (kitchen closes at 6:30pm) and Mondays (kitchen closes at 8:30pm). We did not stay any other days so cannot confirm the kitchen hours but it would seem prudent to check in advance as it does seem to change to suit their staffing needs.
The bar shuts at 10:30pm, whether you are a guest or not, the lights are turned out and the staff make curt remarks to hurry you out (perhaps they only get paid until 10:30pm).
Breakfast and dinner (when we did eat in the pub) was nice enough, although you don’t always get what you ask for. Staff at breakfast on the second day were not so welcoming, probably because they couldn’t shut up the bar until 10:33pm the night before.
Happy hour is disappointing as it is limited to lager and a medium sweet rosé wine (which doesn’t constitute Happy Hour in our book).
The staff seemed to lack basic customer service skills, particularly to paying guests from out of town, so we definitely won’t be staying here again and wouldn’t recommend it unless you had nowhere else to stay. Hospitality is core business for hotels, is it not?
