All staff were helpful and friendly. Comfy 4-poster bed. Relaxing with drinks in front of log fire on a wet winter evening. Extensive menu. Well cooked breakfast.
Excellent location Lovely food
Inadequate blinds which let the light in, and passers by were able to see in. We had to put towels up at the windows to get a nights sleep.This was on the ground floor of the annex for a room which cost over £100 for the night.
Lovely location, with a beautiful walk down the estuary right on your doorstep.
location, frankly outrageous pub grub decent room loads of parking superb access to Snowdonia, and by the seaside
not much. firmer bed but that's being picky
The delightful view.
The staff seemed disinterested. There was a delay of 30 minutes between breakfast order and breakfast arrival. The television in the room did not work at all and no one could do anything about it during our two night stay.
The setting was wonderful, the food brilliant, the bed and linen clean and soft.
George III is amazing in every respect. It is beautifully and quietly located, and convenient for Barmouth and Aberdovey. The views from the hotel are outstanding, with the Mawddach estuary beneath your bedroom window, and the fabulous wooded mountains can be seen on the other side of the river estuary. It is lovely to hear and see the wild ducks etc.on the river. The bedrooms are spotless and beautifully appointed, and the bathrooms are large and pristine. The entire hotel is decorated to a high standard. There are flowers overflowing every balcony and seating area, and there are so many beautiful areas in the hotel, to sit and relax. The food was served promptly, and the choice was outstanding. The breakfast was delicious, and the range of food offered was excellent. To conclude, it was a wonderful experience, and we will be returning for a longer stay next time.
The television did not work. Bliss! Adventure is the opposite of television!
The hotel is in a beautiful location and we would definitely come back. The breakfast was excellent and the evening meal we had was fresh and well cooked, we were really delighted with our meals. We also liked the room - we had the suite and enjoyed sitting out on the first floor balcony which overlooked the estuary, there was a large bath and a comfy bed
We didn't get the most warmest of welcomes on arrival - I think because the bar was busy and one of the bar staff checked us in. Our room, the Suite was in a separate building a short distance from the main hotel, this was the hotel's most expensive room and I guess we had expectations. The mini fridge in the room did not work - we were disappointed as we had bought wine to chill and non dairy milk which needed to be kept cold. We notified the fault to with the same person who checked us in hoping he could look into it to be told it was working last time they looked and nothing could be done as he was just the barman. We left it and asked someone else for some ice to take to the room. When it works again, perhaps leave it on for your guests? The TV in the bedroom was not working and the TV in the sitting room had a very poor reception. We learned the next day that this was a universal fault with the signal and no TV's worked which in view of the location we understood and accepted. However this is about managing your guests expectations and we would have hoped for a short note through the room door advising us there was no signal or to be told on arrival. We paid a lot of money for this room. Finally the balcony which we were so looking forward to sitting on watching the sun go down and drinking a chilled glass of wine needs a good brush and there was a large ashtray full of fag ends and cigar butts left there. There were also dirty ashtrays in the bushes on the ground floor. We thought one packet of biscuits with the tea things was a bit stingy (compared to other places we have stayed) and also the 2 tiny hand soaps and the shampoo in the bathroom and the one plastic mug made a lovely big bathroom feel less than luxurious. All these things took the gloss off our stay and we feel a bit disappointed.
The location cannot be faulted and the clientele are warm and friendly the rooms are well appointed and comfortable The evening menu is extensive and are delicious and well portioned. We we spoilt by one member who could not do enough for us
It is a great pity to highlight an area of the front of house when the majority worked to make our stay enjoyable but the bar staff have a air of arrogance and are evidently not happy I find it astounding that you have to book a table then order food and drinks via the the above mentioned staff even though 4 or 5 staff served it. The bathrooms are dated and are well due a remodel.
Relaxing on balcony overlooking estuary (tranquillity) Food excellent at breakfast and evening. Room clean and comfortable. En-suite up to date (hot water!!)
we have stayed there many times, and never had cause to complain , great to wake up and see that beautiful view , rain or shine .10 /10
stay was too short.
Overall a good standard with excellent food. We will definitely be staying again. Hopefully for a longer period next time
Beautiful location overlooking tidal river and toll bridge, good walks nearby, in the shadow of the Cadair Idris mountain range, a country inn with a good atmosphere thanks to patronage by walkers & cyclists
Weather turned wet & cold at end of stay, no heating on so room rather chilly morning & evening. Mean with shampoo/shower gel, suggest you take your own ! Residents are put in separate dining room for evening meals, bit empty and lacking character albeit with good river views, felt we would rather be eating with the non-resident diners !
Second visit to George III with friends. Like coming home. We had a Lodge Suite absolutely beautiful. Clean and cosy. Wonderful food and lovely staff, we had some lovely conversations with them - very friendly.
What is there not to like?
We loved everything about the hotel and location. We had the Lodge Suite which was superb and had a balcony overlooking the toll bridge and the beautiful estuary. The suite was spotless, the bed extremely comfortable and cosy. The food was excellent as were the staff.
Having to leave!
The room The view The food
How unhelpful the staff was Other customers
General Poor quality of service Wait time for meals; breakfast took 50 minutes to arrive after ordering Tired rooms
Location is superb and the food is pretty good when they get it right and as long as you don't expect anything too fancy.
A little noisy from the downstairs bar - but it was a weekend in August. Nothing too disturbing.
The room the view & the breakfast
Queing for drinks due to lack of bar staff
Location superb. Views of mountains across the estuary. Cattle grazing on the other side of the estuary, ducks regular visitors. Friendly atmosphere, in and around the hotel. So peaceful. Breakfasts excellent, as were evening meals. We hope to visit again - we all feel restored. Thank you.
Accomodation a little tired, although beds were very comfortable. Fixtures needed attention - eg shower rail not very secure. Food took just under an hour to arrive after ordering, but delicious when it did arrive!
Location Lovely old building, full of character
good breakfast, comfortable rooms, helpful staff
This hotel/pub has a lovely setting Bed very comfortable linen and towels very clean
Shower head broken looked as if it had been broken for a while ! Pointed it out when paying bill absolutely no apology given ! Breakfast while ok was slow to arrive at table ! Barman was miserable and food slightly overpriced This place has potential to be a stunning location however get the feeling that they rather take for granted business that passes through a distinct lack of interest in customer service
The location is excellent and both the evening meal and breakfast were first class
The whole place looks a little run down and the standard of cleanliness could have been better
Beautiful location, friendly staff, relaxing atmosphere.
Poor television and WiFi reception.
