Somewhere To Stay?

Travelling into South Molton or wanting to be at the heart of it all? Why not come and spend a night at The George?! Based on Broad Street in central South Molton, you’ll have easy access to a great selection of local shops and eateries, the pannier market and the town itself. Our ‘home away from home’ hotel is the perfect place to set yourself up to be in amongst it all. We have a range of rooms available, we’re a dog-friendly hotel, and we pride ourselves on delivering a quality stay to everybody who comes through our doors. 

The George is also home to a comfortable, cosy lounge bar! Open to all for coffee and cake, or a pint of something in the evening (including several local favourites), we’d love the opportunity to welcome you if you’re in the local area! We may even add a few festive nibbles to our regular menu for Christmas. 

Come and visit us, or book to stay with us – we just can’t wait to see you.
