We stayed in one of the recently refurbished rooms, which was clean comfortable & warm, on a mid-week bed breakfast evening meal with bottle of wine break, it seemed very good value for money. The staff were very friendly & helpful despite us being a little difficult wanting to change rooms at the last minute. The evening meal was fantastic... More

Stayed at The George Hotel for two nights. We booked this last minute, but I was pleasantly surprised. Arrived late on the Friday and enjoyed a drink in the bar. Room was very spacious. It was very warm which was pleasant after coming in from the cold, but very hot during the night. (irrelevant I know) Bathroom facilities were good,... More

Just checked out this morning, we booked a Dinner bed and breakfast deal with free bottle of wine for £44.50 per person. Absolute bargain, food was excellent and portions were huge, staff were very nice throughout the stay, seen some negative comments on here but don't know what they expect for the price, room was nice and warm with everything...

Since last year the management has changed 3x and none of the original staff seemed to be there. We specifically rang and booked the bridal suite, well... More

An unashamedly old-fashioned hotel, which looks as though it`s hardly changed in my lifetime (and I am no longer young). We rather liked that, but it may irritate you if you are a modernist. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. What a pleasure to have breakfast properly cooked to order, instead of the mass-produced, lukewarm buffet that passes for breakfast even... More

I really wanted to like this place. Lovely scenery and decor but the manners if the staff, i cant live with. Simple questions were like asking into the abyss and the effort of the staff member to show us to our rooms was disgraceful! Would not recommend.

My husband and I were looking for a nice quiet break away from home. This little beauty popped up on late rooms and off we went. On arrival we were shown to our room in this quirky little hotel.

This old coaching inn has loads of potential, but sadly it has seen better days. The buildings are attractive externally, and the location on the banks of the Tees by the old stone bridge ought to be stunning, but little has been made of it. Reception area was just a mess. Our rooms were a decent size, bathroom fairly new,... More
