Hotel description The George & Pilgrim Relaxinnz

Built in the 1400s, The George and Pilgrim is the oldest purpose-built pub in the South West of England. Situated in the heart of Glastonbury, it is steeped in history and old folk law. The building has a paneled stone frontage, mullion windows, and old oak beams. All 14 rooms feature a TV and tea and coffee-making facilities, and some have impressive draped four-poster beds. Guests are welcome to enjoy an aperitif or traditional ale in the charming Pilgrim’s bar. The hotel also has a comfortable restaurant with an à la carte menu, offering fresh, succulent homemade food. Licensed for Civil Ceremonies, The George & Pilgrim is a popular choice for weddings, holding functions for up to 90 guests and groups are made most welcome. Free on-site parking is also provided.

Glastonbury has been inhabited since Neolithic times and today it has more than its fair share of attractions and festivals. There is something to interest most tastes from Glastonbury Abbey that was the site of Edmund Ironside’s coronation as King of England in 1016, museums & churches to the interesting hippie shops selling books, charms, clothes and crystals. Step back in time and prepare to be overwhelmed by the charm of this hotel and the cultural town. Easily accessible to Milllfield, Street, and the city of Bristol, the George and Pilgrim looks forward to welcoming you.

Proximity to town centre and the abbey // friendly staff // useful car park at the rear of the building

Stairs up to the room could be a challenge for elderly people.

rooms are dated, though it would not work if it was modern for a spooky 1475 coaching inn,very authentic with good food, large rooms, and pleasant staff.

noisy, especially if you have a front of hotel room.

Wendy was most helpful and friendly and is obviously working very hard in a new job.

I suspect the bedrooms have been allowed to run down a bit and only now are being got back up to scratch. I had problems with TV, hairdrier not working and toilet running, but expect they will soon be fixed.
