We stayed in this fabulous apartment for a few weeks whilst we were in between house moves and loved every minute. It's absolutely gorgeous and the finish and fittings are 5-star hotel standard. The location is brilliant and the private secure parking a real bonus. Very highly recommended!
Angie & Steve, Farnham
We absolutely loved this place! You can feel the history in this lovely old building and the apartment is tranquil and calm. Everything was very high spec. The top-of-the-range oven is a work of art and has more features and settings than I could imagine - and besides, pretending that I couldn't get to grips with it gave us a great excuse to eat out every night in all Henley's great eateries!!!! (Try Naya Indian restaurant it's fabulous!)

Thank you so much Exclusively Warwickshire for your help with our wonderful stay at the George. It was everything we hoped for and more. We will highly recommend it to friends in Florida. The apartment is perfect and the location is unbeatable. Looking forward to many more visits.

This was a really great apartment to stay in for a holiday. The decor and furnishings are 5-star quality, yet it's still a comfortable and inviting space to spend time in. Coming back to the apartment after a day out sightseeing in the stunning surrounding area was always a joy. We highly recommend the George and Dragon apartment.
