"Not in Ripon"
This hotel is rather isolated and is 15 minutes down back roads from the town of Ripon. The check in time is 5:00 PM and doors are locked. Do not arrive early. They do have a large free parking lot if you need to wait. There is a very strict policy on refunds. The hotel staff was not accommodating at all when requesting a refund due to inaccurate reporting of address.

"Not really in Ripon - Don't pay in Advance"
When we put the address into our GPS for Main Street in Ripon, it took us into Ripon on Main Street. The George wasn't there. We asked around town and discovered it was actually in a little village called Wath about 15 minutes outside of Ripon. That is not what we booked. We needed to be in Ripon. When we finally got to the hotel it was before 5:00 PM and everything was locked. We were forced to wait in the parking lot for about an hour until someone showed up. In the meantime we called Expedia and were told that we must request our money back in person. When we did request it, they refused to give us our money back since we paid in advance. They said that this was their "legal" address. I do believe that this hotel needs to add a disclaimer indicating that they are not actually "in Ripon". My GPS didn't know either. We are still trying to get reimbursed as we had to book another location. I cannot speak for the condition, cleanliness and comfort, but when a guest arrives and the door is locked so that they can't even sit in the lounge, that speaks volumes.

"Popular pub with rooms in Yorkshire countryside"
Wath is a dot of a town in Yorkshire, for which The George is the local pub. It's on the main street, and has a generous parking lot in the rear. It has a small attached wing with several guest rooms and a small dining room to complement the main event, which is drinking at the bar. The hostess is cheerful, the rooms are comfortable with bathrooms up-to-date and clean, the dining menu is fairly standard but certainly satisfactory (although I probably wouldn't fuss with the sardine starter again ...), service is pleasant, and breakfast is the usual filling array. In short, a modest but entirely satisfactory place to stop over in the vicinity of Ripon. With the exception of the sardine, I'd be glad to repeat the experience.

"The George"
Enjoyed our 1 night stay at The George. Room quite small for cost of £70 but very clean & comfy bed. Bathroom also spotless & of good standard with shower - some mildew around shower seals bit off putting. Tea/coffee facilities fine but always judge hotels by whether or not they include biscuits - none at The George! Very quiet stay - enjoyed a good nights sleep. Bar staff & owner/receptionist both very friendly & helpful. Overall a nice BnB but would question the £70 charge.

"Super friendly"
This is a little gem located in a lovely little village just a few minutes from the A1. Both of us & our 2dogs were given a lovely warm welcome when we arrived & our bags were taken up to our room for us. We had a super meal n the bar (dogs by our side) before enjoying a comfortable nights sleep. Breakfast was piping hot & very tasty. Unfortunately we had forgotten to bring vital paperwork regarding our entry to the championship dog show the next day & our whole trip from Scotland would have been for nothing had Luke (chef) not downloaded it & printed it off for us. He's a lifesaver. We cannot thank him & the owners enough for making out stay so stress free. Special thanks go to Lauren,you're a star.

"A hidden gem for the races."
A lovely quiet village setting and a hidden gem of a pub/restaurant. Very friendly staff, excellent food and a cosy room to boot. Perfect for a short stay to go either to the races or local events without the hassle or noise of the bigger hotels. A bonus if you want to travel overnight with your dog as they make them welcome too.

"One night stay"
Lovely place, great accomodating staff, fantastic locally sourced food in the restaurant. Some of the little things let this place down a bit though- which can be easily fixed: 1. Light didnt work (bulb out) 2. Ironing board cover needed replacing 3. Be good to provide dressing gowns and biscuits (would be fitting to value of room). Unfortunately the room was a bit noisy, with an extractor kicking in a few times during the night on the wall outside the window. This did make for a disturbed sleep, hence a lower score on comfort. Young girl with blonde hair serving in restaurant had excellent customer service skills- well done her!

"A little gem in the perfect position for touring."
We stayed at the George as the second part of a weeks escaping builders, and what a little gem. The people are friendly, the food is absolutely brilliant and the prices are not overly expensive. Have a good breakfast, don't bother with lunch but save yourself for the excellent evening meals - you won't regret it. Rooms are snug so don't take a large suitcase, but comfortable with all the usual refinements. Get the extra size superking if it's available, but don't be put off if it's not.

"Warm welcome and friendly atmosphere"
After a drive from Manchester in torrential rain, the warm welcome from Carolyne was much appreciated. A tasty dinner served by a friendly waitress completed our recovery from the journey. The bedroom was comfortable with extra touches like a cafetiere with real coffee. A good breakfast in the morning set us up for the next part of our journey. Would thoroughly recommend The George at Wath.

"Fantastic service"
Outstanding service from start to finish. The owners were friendly, chatty and took great care of us even though we were only there for the one night. The food was absolutely outstanding (particularly the steak and ale pie!) at a more than reasonable price. This hotel is literally the only place in the village so you will have to drive a little further afield for shops, however it is a great location for hiking and is a beautiful village. Ripon is less than 10mins drive away so it is ideally located for a getaway. We will absolutely stay here again.

A very peaceful inn with bedrooms. Excellent breakfast and helpful staff. Only downside was that there were no evening meals served on a Sunday and after a long walk in the countryside we had anticipated eating in. We needed to take the car to get into nearby Ripon which was no real problem. Overall would recommend for a very comfortable stay.

"Two nights in Wath"
Our stay for two nights was memorable because of the friendly welcome to The George and the comfort of the hotel. We were very impressed with the cuisine which included a very special pate and a superb beef which we have never seen before. So impressed we are revisiting TheGeorge next year, because it is in the centre of some marvellous scenery and provides a fantastic table after a hard days' holidaying!

"Good service - and excellent breakfast!"
We were greeted quickly by a very friendly employee. Our room was large and well furnished, with very comfortable beds, and we were glad that the heating was on as the weather had changed to autumn quite suddenly. My only criticism would be that some of 'fixtures and fittings' needed a good dust! Our breakfast was cooked perfectly, by the young, helpful chef - exactly what we asked for.

"Well worth a visit"
Did a one night B&B plus evening meal here situated in a quiet very attractive upmarket village. The sun was at it hottest but the owner Caroline had made sure a fan was on in the room when we arrived. She couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. The food was very good (try the Italian meat balls, really outstanding) and service excellent by Millie, her first night! This is really a resturant with a small bar area where the locals dominate (friendly enough if a bit loud) as it is the only place in the village for a drink. Worth seeking out as is a few miles off the main road system.

"Great service in a superb location"
After spending 3 nights in a very poor hotel in York, The George at Wath was a vast improvement. The service was friendly and efficient and the rural location suited us perfectly. The beds are really comfortable and the linen is good quality. My only gripe would be the small size of our room (Ripon) which was classed as superior and to be fair, if the weather hadn't been so very hot, it would have mattered less. The owner quickly found us a fan, which did help the situation. The food is good and I recommend the ice cream with nut brittle. The chef gave me the recipe for the nut brittle, which I made this morning, so many thanks for that. We will return next time we are in North Yorkshire.
