Unfortunately we had a bad experience dining here, the staff were inexperienced and kept us waiting too long for our meal. Many were complaining and some left. When the food arrived it was most unacceptable. Not a good evening meal!

Stayed in a room with harbour view, four poster bed, and lovely en suite. Comfortable bed and room. Service good. But at £170 for a double with breakfast, ouch! It should be! Only thing that let it down for us was the clutter in the residents corridors and stairwell. Vacuum and ironing boards in the corridor, and stacks of papers... More

Told on arrival there would be a 45 minute wait which we found surprising as it was only 18.10 but accepted this fact and ordered some garlic bread to come whilst waiting for... More

Stayed at the George when I was attending a party at the fish restaurant across the road. The room was beautiful and very well equipped with a shared bathroom with the next room (we had booked the two rooms together). This is ideal for families. Tea and coffee facilities were in the room along with TV, twin beds and plenty... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The George is located on the Harbour in the heart of West Bay, Dorset. This striking Georgian building stands proudly on the harbourside of this popular fishing village, made famous by being the backdrop to the recent BBC Tv series "Broadchurch".The hotel has recently been taken over (01/10/2013) by Chris and Kim and they are busy welcoming guests new and old to The George. The hotel is open all day and serves fresh locally sourced home cooked from the restaurant, including daily specials using fish sourced from the fishing boats in the harbour. . The bar serves a good selection of wines and exceptional real ales from Palmers Brewery, located a mile away in Bridport.There is plenty to do in the area, with several of breathtaking coastal walks and leisurely strolls along the beach front.There are several charter boats waiting to take keen sea fishing visitors, or a Rib taxi that will take you to nearby Lyme Regis and return a couple of hours later. Whether you are looking for a adrenalin packed weekend, or simply a relaxing break by the beautiful harbour, The George Hotel is the place to stay. Chris and Kim look forward to welcoming you to The George soon. ... more   less
