      Friendly, helpful, staff on arrival. Interesting old building. Room was clean and everything worked.

      (1) Room could do with updating, especially bathroom. (2) At £75 for room only, a bit pricey compared with v good local B&Bs. (3) At around 11.30 pm we wanted a coffee. Lounge very busy and only member of staff overwhelmed with the volume of orders. Manager saw us waiting and took our order. It still didn't come and the manager did not re-appear! Eventually we managed to order from the staff member who was very apologetic. The whole thing took nearly an hour to get two cups of coffee. The staff member was working flat out but there were insufficient staff available. We would have ordered drinks if service had been adequate.

      the staff were excellent and couldn't have been more helpful I would certainly sing its praises to all and everyone

      the only down side to our visit to colchester was the one way street system that is operating in the town centre an absolute nightmare which I dont think I would relish a second time

      the ambience of staying in an old coaching house

      to hot,room changed,colour scheme questionable,noisy

      Hotel very nice and had history and character. Nicely situated in the town with plenty of car parking.

    • Older travelers

      The George is a comfortable town centre hotel convenient for touring Essex & Suffolk. The town's history is within easy walking distance, It's not our first visit to the George, and I have no doubt it will welcome us again.

      We got lost twice in the one-way system while driving back to the hotel.

      Staff were efficient and helpful, the rooms were of an acceptable standard and offered basic facilities. Main lobby and lounge bar are always an appealing factor.

    • Older travelers
      7.0

      I am always please with the helpfulness of the staff at the George, we have stayed there previously with no problems. Food is good and the hotel itself has a lot of character.

      I was dissapointed with the quality of the room that we were alocated this time. It was tired, needed redecorating and the bathroom had definately seen better days.

    • Single

      A bit run down from my memories of 50 years ago but it was comfortable & convenient for my purpose...a memorial at my old school

      Advise having breakfast elsewhere...not freshly cooked I think.

    • Single

      Comfortable lounge, good breakfast, perfect location.

      The mattress, and indeed the bed-cover, both seemed very close to end of useful life. It would have been nice to be able to open the window.

    • Couple
      7.4

      Staff were excellent, very pleasant, helpful and friendly. Location was close to all amenities. Food was very good.

      Our room was on the front of the hotel and the noise levels between midnight and 4am precluded any sleep.

    • Family with children
      7.8

      The hotel had a pleasant, relaxed, old world atmosphere. There were 8 of us eating in the restaurant and we all had well presented tasty meals. Of the two twin rooms we booked, one was adequate and one was very spacious and pleasant.

      The larger of the two rooms was quite noisy from the courtyard below.

    • Older travelers

      Was not made to feel particularly welcome Had to ask at 2.00pm if the room would be cleaned Having booked, for Easter lunch, a table for my family on the basis of between 3 and 6 covers, I was told that they couldn't accommodate us except for on separate tables. They later revised this when I complained

    • Group of friends
      7.0

      Loved the position of the hotel, the age and ambience. The food was very good and the hotel made me feel relaxed and comfortable. Not pretentious.

      I felt that the bedrooms we stayed in at the top of the hotel were in dire need of redecoration. The bathrooms also needed refurbishment. Very tired and sad. A great shame as the hotel has a lovely heritage and would benefit from an update. My family and I did wonder if the soft furnishings had ever been thoroughly cleaned. Too much squeezed into a small room. My elderly mother of 82 should not have been given a room at the top of the hotel either, but we were too tired to go through the upheaval of sorting out another room by the time we checked in at 7.30pm. I would stay again but request a room at a lower level.

    • Older travelers

      Historical building in comfortable surroundings; Breakfast -staff extremely helpful and polite. Hotel was central for all sites of interest in this historical town. Would definitely stay again;

      Comfortable and large sitting area surrounds the bar. Breakfast was excellent.

      Only one staff member behind the bar, so service very slow.
