Highlights from the recent AA Inspection – well done team!

The George Hotel & Brasserie retains its Three Star classification with a strong AA Merit Score of 88%, securing the Silver Award for another year. The George Hotel & Brasserie has a good number of commendable features; not least it’s enjoyable cuisine, comfortable accommodation, but warm and friendly team. This has been a very pleasant guest experience that found a team well in tune with its guests, in providing a hospitable and relaxed environment, well done all!

Dining on all occasions was most enjoyable and dishes at dinner continue to achieve the Two AA Rosette Award

Hospitality is a continuing strength with all members of the team helping to create a friendly and welcoming atmosphere at all points. Occasional passing staff also took time to converse. Afternoon contacts; arrival through to lounge test, all smiling and friendly. Definite hosting presence observed during dinner. Breakfast was upbeat and very jolly, with further natural conversations instigated at the departure stage. Thanks for looking after me!

A very good level of choice provided at breakfast across both the starter buffet selection and hot dishes available to order; quality of juice, pastries, yogurts and meats impressed. Avocado and poached eggs dish was most enjoyable.

Service continues to exceed expectations at the given star rating, thanks to the well trained and confident team.

How the Overall Quality Rating is Achieved

The minimum overall quality score for your target star rating must be met. We assess 58 aspects of your hotel (under nine area headings) and score each aspect from 1 to 5 (1 being acceptable; 5 being excellent). The total of these 58 scores is then converted into an overall percentage. This percentage must fall into the band for your target star rating. Note – the overall percentage is based on the total score and is not an average of the area percentages.
