The George Hotel on Main Street, Inverary, in county Argyll, has been a hotel since 1860 although the building dates all the way back to 1770. This wonderfully restored ancient hotel takes the visitor back in time with its warmth. The rooms invoke nostalgia with their well-appointed decor and exquisite furnishings, even in the lovely en-suite bathrooms. Apart from the rooms in the George, there are some – equally attractive – in the First House and you can also stay in the Big Wee Hoose or the Wee Hoose, depending on your requirements. The significant variety of both beds and baths to choose from ensures that you will happily spend your stay in your preferred environment. And if you feel like nesting, the hotel has its own cocktail and public bars and restaurant.
The restaurant inside the George Hotel on Main Street in Inveraray is highly recommended. The dining area is a large flagstone conservatory that lets in the soft Scottish light during the day, while the four roaring peat fires create a warm ambience. The cocktail and public bars are cosy, friendly spaces. Patrons could have a pre-prandial drink on the garden terrace when the weather is kind. The ingredients of the traditional pub fare, along with those that have a more modern twist, and the vegetarian options, are all locally sourced. Meals are all equally well presented and delectable. The considerable wine list gives you much freedom to choose. And the Malts of the George must get a special mention as it is rare to encounter such an impressive list of malts.
