Located bang in the middle of the handsome north Cotswolds market town of Shipston-on-Stour, and by far the grandest building on the short high street, The George Townhouse is a historic eighteenth-century coaching inn that has been the heartbeat of the town for years. Given a major makeover at the beginning of 2016, it's now a medium-sized boutique hotel, fitted out afresh for the 21st century.

They have done a great job, updating it with flair and style while preserving the historic nature of the building. The rooms all come with with kingsized beds,  high-quality mattresses and stylish bathrooms with rainfall showers, plus Temple Spa toiletries, flatscreen TVs, mineral water and Nespresso machines, and blackout curtains for insomniacs. There are fifteen rooms in all, ranging from smallish 'Classic' rooms to larger 'Superior' and 'Deluxe' rooms and so-called 'Deluxe Plus' rooms, which have a freestanding bath and separate walk-in showers. There's also a Suite right at the top of the building.

The really nice thing about the George, though, is that it's also a well-known venue for food and drink in the town, with non-residents popping in for breakfast, lunch and dinner to enjoy locally sourced food or just a pint or two, either in the main bar or restaurant or out on the popular terrace behind. They serve a shortish, moderately priced menu with half a dozen starters and mains, plus good steaks and a few 'classics' including a great burger and fish & chips – and we challenge anyone to finish what is a generously portioned and delicious 'Full English' breakfast. The atmosphere is good, and the welcome always warm, and there's a pride and enthusiasm for the town and its area that shines through in the service and surroundings. Long may that continue.



Open all year.


From £100 a night including breakfast for a Classic room to £160–£180 for a Deluxe Plus room. The hotel's one suite costs £200–£240 a night.
