This historic building was once visited by Charles Dickens for his public readings. It offers a Dickens-themed restaurant, light, modern rooms with private bathrooms, and a themed bar.

Set within an old corn mill with a working waterwheel, this traditional hotel enjoys a tranquil setting on an island between the historically significant Abbey Ruins and the banks of the Thames.
Score from 295 reviews Good
Good hot baths. Breakfast had limited choice but adequate
The room was cold on arrival as well as the corridors. Decor although fine was looking tired. A 3 star rating was adequate and it served our purpose well
Staff is very helpful, nice hotel reasonably priced
Sometimes it can be a bit noisy. Shower system/pressure needs upgrading (not a surprise as this happens in 99% of English hotels)
The building a good old village type pub / hotel.
Had to change rooms due to the facilities not working, second room not much better, cold shower... In then end after being their for about 2 hours I gave up and asked for a refund and they said the card machine had stoped working, offered me a cheque!!!! Then after a short conversation refused a refund altogether......
they mended the bath tap quite quickly
the tv was rubbish, kept losing reception or something
Best lamb curry I have had in a long time.
Bit noisy from traffic
Overpriced, very tired looking and in desperate need of decorating Twin room not double, tiny bed, minimal, very basic bedding. Floor carpet dirty, no toilet paper in bathroom. Railway line about 100mtr from room.
Very Friendly and couldnt do more for you
The trains but thats not the Hotels fault
The George Hotel is a nice hotel and the staff were friendly. After initial confusion with our booking we were allocated a nice room. This Hotel needs a lot of work and can't do much about its location. Bearable for our one night stay but not for longer.
Location to the railway, very noisy. Breakfast was terrible over cooked, dry and not much of it, thank goodness.
Proximity to village Bar Bed Parking Friendly, helpful owners
Terrible bathroom and room layout Stairs (old building) Noise from street tables below
I was really helped by friendly staffs since I was troubled by lost-baggage at airport. I had fun through talk with them.
Noisy railway line all night
The hotel is in the middle of the town
I booked 2 rooms only to be told on arrival they were not on the system even with copies of e-mails from Bookings got offered a family room which we had to take as we came by train and return ticket where for the following day we were also charged for breakfast the wi-fi did not work in our room
Not much every thing hit & miss.
Room very small /bathroom needs some work.
Having used this hotel for one night, and having stayed in many hotels, in both the UK and Europe, the list of issues found with this property is vast. Issue such as; *The whole establishment, certainly the parts that were used, looked tired and in uregnt need of decorating. *Windows would not shut correctly and were full of rot. *The bath panel in the room was damaged due to water leakage with mildew visiable on the panel and shower screen. *The heating system was noisey when the radiator was turned on, in an attempt to warm the room. *The property is less than 10 yards away from a train line, which disturbed sleep. *The drinks offered at the bar were of poor quality. *No VAT receipt was available for items purchased at the bar. *External doors were not securely shut meaning anyone could access the hotel rooms area. *Breakfast was poor with tables not being cleaned prior to other guests being seated at them. Due to my personal experience at this property i will look to avoid this in the furture at all costs.
The rooms are clean and tidy. Nice bar. Good location.
Train line very noisy for room at the rear. No wifi in rooms due to thickness of walls (age of property)
I was upgraded to a better room upon arrival which included a 4 poster bed with very good facilities. I had a comfortable sleep with good level of heating. Staff were helpful in calling me cab when I was running late.
The breakfast service was fairly slow in the morning so I only had cereal rather than cooked. Also the wifi and phone network signals in the hotel area were poor although the wifi was free which was good when it worked!
Clean sheets and towels Good quality toiletries Friendly staff Refreshed decor/
Trains very audible when window open Dining room needs upgrade
The George is located very centrally in Pangbourne. There is ample car parking. We didn't eat at the Hotel so can't comment on the food. The wifi worked ok in the bedroom - but had to phone down to reception for the password as it wasn't given to us when checking in. The staff were friendly and let us keep the car parked at the hotel throughout after we'd checked out as we caught a train to London for a few hours.
I booked the hotel at short notice as Newbury where I was working didn't have any vacancies, 20 minutes later pulled into the George, still undergoing refurbishment as the new owners had only been there 5 months, greeted very warmly, was concerned when I pulled up about the railway viaduct close to the hotel, got a room facing the Chinese restaurant on the road, never heard a sound all night, an excellent nights sleep, choice of draught ales was limited but was told that they would be getting guest beers in, lagers were plentiful, breakfast was ok, dinner was fair, also opposite was a Co Op if you needed anything else
nothing really, suited what I needed, the only issue was car park was limited, some large guest vans in there, but apart from that it was good
Bedroom was clean and comfortable. Food in restaurant was well thought out and presented at a reasonable price. Staff were pleasant and helpful.
Shower did not have a proper mixer. Danger of scalding. Breakfast was not explained very well either by staff or via wall notices. Would expect real ground coffee not Nescafé at breakfast.
Decent Italian around the corner
Noisy pub underneath room. Mirror above the toilet not the sink No pole in the wardrobe to hang clothes on.
-The proprietor and staff were very friendly and helpful -The hotel is picturesque and great for a weekend getaway or country retreat - Good breakfast - WIFI available, which was great -Easy walk from the station and near to all the little shops, with a supermarket right across the road -Great pub for lunch and close proximity to other hotels and pubs, so plenty of meal choices
-Rooms were not very soundproof, so quite aware of neighbouring activities -long walk down higgledy-piggledy passages to the rooms, which is due to the age & design of the hotel and can't be helped - WIFI signal was quite weak in the rooms, again probably due to the size and design of this older hotel (at least it was offered, which was more than we had in London!)
Extremely efficient, very friendly and accommodating staff. Good, quality food. Comfy beds. Excellent room throughout. Welcoming to families. Staff went above and beyond. We will be visiting again and would highly recommend.
Good location in the centre of Pangbourne wonderful staff Very clean Hotel. New owners have only been in 3 months Would recommend this hotel
Breakfasts could have been better The hotel is at present being refurbished but will be beautiful when finished
