    The oldest purpose built Inn within the Southwest

    by

    Unique Quality: Built in 1475 to provide hospitality for visitors to the nearby Benedictine abbey, The George & Pilgrims Hotel has been welcoming people for over 500 years and is steeped with history.
    There are 14 en-suite bedrooms, 8 of which are situated within the oldest part of the building and have their own distinctive character. There are three four poster bedrooms, one of which is named after King Henry VIII, who apparently stayed in the hotel during the dissolution.

    Directions: The hotel is situated on Glastonbury High Street at the bottom of the hill in the town centre. The nearest railway station is Castle Cary.

    15th century inn

    by

    Excellent location by the market place. The hotel offered no great luxury, and was over-priced at £75, but I certainly don't regret the experience of staying in the wattle and daub former guest house of the Abbey, which has been putting up pilgrims for the last 540 years! It was also good to eat West Country pasties, washed down with cider. I've since learnt that it's supposed to be haunted!

    Unique Quality: Antiquity.

    Directions: Centre of Glastonbury

    Interesting.

    by

    An interesting place to stay from an historical point of view. Some rooms have special names, and are priced accordingly. The room I had was quite small but sufficient, although the window opened onto a tiny roof space enclosed by four high walls.....not what one could call a room with a view.

    Bar food was adequate, though not particularly hot (I visited out of season). Breakfast was hot enough and service seemed more willing to please than bar staff the previous evening. Maybe it was just a bad day.

    It's central, and architecturally interesting, but I suspect there may be other places in Glastonbury which are better value.

    Unique Quality: Started life in the 12th century as the guesthouse for Glastonbury Abbey. Henry V111 is supposed to have stayed there to watch the dissolution. Later used as a coaching inn, so a mish-mash of historical architecture.

    Directions: Can't miss it really, though finding the parking spaces is difficult (I think there are three, otherwise you have to use the pay car park at the rear of the hotel).
