We were very happy to find on our late night arrival after our wedding that The George had upgraded us to the more expensive Park Suite.
We were a bit insulted by The George's snobby night staff who seemed to look down their noses at us. This was compounded by the fact that The George took money from us before we had even been shown to our room, seemingly like a 'bond' in case we damaged the place. They took more money than our room was worth and the difference was not back in our account until 2-3 days after we had left. We have never experienced any hotel do this before.
However, the upgraded room we were given was great. It had two televisions, a king-sized bed, dual showers, a large bath with jets and complimentary macarons. As we arrived late, we decided to make the most of our short time and we had two baths and a shower before we left.
Our only other complaint would be that, even after the room upgrade, the high pricing at The George seems like it should include at least a simple breakfast.

Best bed ever, and staff, checkin, wifi, parking, and an excellent onsite restaurant with great room service.
Only let down by the shower - very VERY low water pressure. The hotel does publish info re eco-environmentally-friendly measures, and water conservation is one of them, but most hotels do and I've never had this much trouble feeling 'clean' before.
If you're not a shower person, this hotel holds up to a high standard on every other front - but if you are, then you might find it's enough to detract from the whole experience.

The hotel exceeded my expectations and I was so pleased with their friendliness and generosity. You could help yourself from the fridge at any time and to biscuits, coffee and fruit. There was big fireplace in the lounge going 24/7. The room was comfortable and clean and I had everything I could want.
