We had lunch and dinner at this property. Nestling on the estuary with great views over the estuary and into the hills. The property is very attractive. Being next to a wooden toll bridge makes it fairly unique.

The hotel was incredibly busy with several sittings booked, we were given table 9 which is in the carvery room, the views are superb however we had the never ending queue for the carvery...

Booked this through Booking.com as the rating was very good. A 2 night business stay I arrived quite late but was still able to order food which was very good. The reception staff and bar staff were very helpful. Being rather pleased with my choice I went onto TripAdvisor and was astonished to find such poor reviews. After a 2...

Visited this place 1st April. Took ages to be served. Staff couldn't be bothered. Expensive compared to places in Dolgellau and Barmouth. I see other people have reported this. Shan't go again and recommend other people steer clear.

Not an opinion, just a report. Pint of bitter £4.10 (way too much for this area). I was kicked out of downstairs bar at 4 pm saturday, as it was closing;why? Upstairs bar was ok however, but I was left with the feeling that this place is more concerned with the convenience of the staff than that of the clients.

So dissappointed in this place..what is going on here? They have a stunning location, great old building, perfect setting so they can't be bothered to get welcoming staff or good food because they think people will return anyway because of the aforementioned..??. Wake up owners!!! Barman diabolical, surly, unwelcoming..fish and chips ok, rissotto was NOT a rissotto..salmon and pea rissotto...

We were sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your visit on Saturday. I can assure you all of our staff work incredibly hard and take great pride in their work so find this sort of review very hurtful. Whilst this may be no comfort to you, I can promise you our risotto is and will always be made...

We recently stayed in a wonderful holiday cottage across the road from the George, the cottage it's self was amazing and thank goodness we could cook and buy our own drink and enjoy our holiday!
