Heritage buildings so you can't go wrong. All supported by great staff, well informed and willing to assist. Our room was modern, clean, well taken care of. Would avoid the street rooms if given a choice, although not usually an issue. Nice touches all round. Drinks at cocktail hour,coffee/tea always available. Buffet breakfast thoroughly adequate, and no cares where you... More

Stayed there while attending National Health Leader's Conference. The room provided was VERY NICE. They said I was in an outbuilding which at first was off-putting but when I saw the unit, I was most pleasantly surprised.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Clean, quiet and the staff were amazing. It was lovely to join others in the lobby for a evening glass of wine. We called ahead and had them book our first night restaurant - it was a great choice, within walking distance.

The Great George is a wonderful place for a relaxing few days. The rooms are very quaint, and the sitting area is both comfortable and beautiful. Breakfast is free and better than most expensive hotel buffets - great variety and you eat anywhere you like in the common area on the first floor. Free cookies every afternoon; they also serve...

Really enjoyed our stay here. Was expecting nothing but the best and surely wasn't disappointed. A little pricey but holds to the saying about getting what you pay for. Room was tastefully decorated and bed was very comfortable. Would highly recommend this Inn for your special occasions. Easy walking access to downtown area.
