Comments by walkers who stayed at The George Hotel in Orton/Raisbeck on The Coast to Coast Path
The most comfortable bed on my short trip. A busy pub the cause of others drinks being added to my bill. Error rectified without problem and efficient breakfast staffing enabled an early start. Needed due to getting lost after Bents Farm. Stick to the walk till you face a gate do not continue down to a hard track. I'm told many make this mistake.

This was our second stay with Hazel at The George Hotel, a traditional English pub in Orton on our second C2C crossing and again we were not disappointed. This is an ideal place for walkers and for the second time we were given Room 6 with its quirky sloping floor, a very spacious area with plenty of room to spread our gear. The acceptable en-suite was clean and toiletries plentiful. The George offers a varied menu and generous portions. Although we stayed on a Friday night, we were not disturbed in any way by the pub patrons (it was Appleby Horse Fair weekend). The self –serve light breakfast option next morning was enough to sustain us, but the cooked breakfast served to others did look very tempting. Mobile phone reception is patchy and Wi-Fi is available, again depending on position. Recommended. Stayed 5th June 2015

Comfortable friendly place to stay. Good value and food was good.

I stayed mid September on the 7th night of my solo C2C walk. My suitcase was waiting for me in the bar area – a bit worrying since someone (other than me!) could have walked off with it. My twin room was three floors up on the second floor. The en-suite room was ok but quite ordinary and though it was not a large room it was plenty adequate for one. I would have preferred the bathroom not to have been carpeted. The evening meal and breakfast were good and at all times the staff nice and friendly.

This is the third time we have stayed at The George (and we will be back for more). This time my daughter Ruby and I were walking on the Coast to Coast route. It is a very relaxing inn, lots of space, and bedrooms and decor are of a high standard. An exceptionally warm and friendly welcome from the landlady. The village is set in outstanding countryside, with walks from the doorstep. All in all, this is one of our favourite places to stay on the route, and also for a weekend break perhaps later this year? Highly recommended!!

A smallish room. Good evening meal and breakfast. Much improved since new owners took over.

We arrived here after a day of horizontal rain from Shap (the spring promise at Bampton only lasted to Shap Abbey) to be met by a smiling host with one of those boot trays to remove all wet boots and clothing which were whisked away to the drying room - and returned dry the morning after.
Room and shower room were spacious and bright and clean, with welcome addition of shower gels and a hairdryer available. (Just need to put a notice up that hot and cold are in reverse!) The George now feels like a mini hotael rather than a pub - though the bar is good too. Food was very good and the dining area was separate to the bar so felt clean and sociable as other walkers from B&Bs came to eat.
Very friendly, hands on owners - and nice to meet them - not always the case in many pubs along the way.

Room was fairly small with ensuite toilet (shared tub/shower). Dinner in the pub was very good, as was breakfast. Hosts were friendly. Overall, it was an above average hotel B&B.

I stayed here in May of 2012 while hiking on the Coast to Coast Path. Hands down the nicest, most accomodating people on the trail. The couple managing the place made me feel right at home. Great pizza too.

This place is apparently being restored from a much-neglected condition and still smells a bit of paint. But it is now being run by a friendly and enthusiastic young couple and probably does most of its C2C trade in evening meals. The meal we had was very enjoyable - imaginative, good ingredients and well-cooked. The bacon for breakfast was especially noteworthy and we learned afterwards that this came from the hostess's own pigs. If this standard is maintained and more rooms are brought back into use this could become a successful C2C stopover.

We had dinner here on 4th July. The new managers are working very hard to build up the pub's reputation. Great menu and food. Recommended
Mel and Mike Cartwright, left on 16 July 2011
Go along with most other comments. The staff we found fine, the food and beer good, the room just clean enough to stay one night, we would not have stayed two. A
