                This was nice upon entering the hotel reception, the concierge acknowledged my return back to stay @ The George (2nd visit). All the staff were very accommodating and couldn't do enough for you.

                Nothing springs to mind.................

                Friendly, relaxed, luxurious, handy to city

                It would be nice to have more of a view from the room.

                Very nice hotel with pleasant and helpful staff!

                Breakfast not included - should have been at that price!
