The George Hotel is a 17th Century townhouse enjoying a wonderful location nestling on the water’s edge between the castle and pier in the bustling harbour town of Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight.

This magnificent building is steeped in history and was once home to the most noteworthy of the Island’s Governors, Sir Robert Holmes who often entertained King Charles II.

The George, under the new ownership of London nightclub impresario, Howard Spooner (whose club creations include The Leopard Lounge, Crazy Larry’s, Embargo, Public and The Clapham Grand), has undergone an extensive refurbishment designed and implemented by Andrew Martin. Their stunning new Italian-inspired beachfront garden, with historic olive trees and driftwood clad beach bar is the hotspot on the Solent – serving up to  500 covers a day. 

Alfresco dining at its best.
