We stayed here over a year ago and the experience was horrible from start to finish. Staff that don't care or don't seem to care Food that's mediocre Rooms that aren't particularly clean or welcoming Lovely location for a hotel but it's location isn't done justice by it's staff and poor management. I wouldn't recommend staying - we did the... More

A pint plus a bitter shandy sets you back 7.50. Staff cannot manage even a grunt. Thoroughly unwelcoming, a done-up 'modern' bar without character. Food looked good from a distance but decided not to bother given the attitude. Went to the White Horse in Blakeney instead, 10 minutes further in the next village and a lot more enjoyable.

A nice room in a lovely location. Good for walking, and a handy base for exploring the area. Only criticism is the breakfast. There are plenty of comments already on this; for a continental breakfast, read "just breakfast", it's more UK cereals and fruit with a few pastries rather than what most people accept as continental with meats, cheeses, breads...

Our first hotel break with our dog. Room was very comfortable, superb views across the Marshes. Great choice for breakfast but could not manage 3 courses in the evening ! Relaxing atmosphere with everyone very laid back. Fantastic area for dog walking.

4 of us ate here on a Friday evening. We had drinks in the bar before hand. My husband thought the beer very expensive. Great gin selections though. Empty glasses were not collected by either of the 2 grumpy bar staff. Our meal however was good, good portions and flavour. Also a lovely selection.The woman serving us most pleasant. We... More

My wife & I called in at the George a few weeks ago, and decided to have a drink and sandwiches for lunch. The menu looked a bit pricey (£9+) on the menu board, but looked tempting. My wife ordered a dressed crab sandwich & I had a smoked salmon, cream cheese and chives sandwich, both with hand cut potato... More

Thank you for your comments. Our dishes vary from around £ 7 to £ 19 (for a steak) and whilst you can pick up a sandwich from a supermarket for £ 3, you have to remember that they are not subject to VAT whereas we are, in addition we provide handcut French fries so if you were to add those...

Had a very nice beef Sunday roast at the George but very overpriced, £13.95 each. Our bill came to just on £40 for lunch and two drinks! It was nice but not £40 worth of nice. After we paid and left 10% tip,we looked at our bill to discover that there was a 12.5% service charge already added so beware.

Liz thank you for your comments and am glad that you enjoyed your roast at the George on Sunday. It is £ 13.95 for a roast but I think it is not bad value, the beef is reared on the surrounding fields, the vegetables are all local, the potatoes cooked in duck fat and it comes with a Yorkshire pudding....

We visited at around 4pm and it wasn't busy. My partner, six year old daughter and I ordered food and drinks. My daughter ate sausages and mash from the children's menu, my partner ate the adults sausage and mash and I ordered crab salad. The bill came to £48, which I wouldn't have minded paying if the food had been... More

Lynne Thanks for your comments and am sorry that you did not enjoy your food. Clearly at 4pm restaurants are not at their peak and our chefs are trained to cater to serve 80 people quickly in busy times so your food can be prepared quickly without being reheated. We invested in a large Combi oven ( at a cost... More

I was disappointed to find that only a continental breakfast was included in the price of the room, comparable hotels include a full English breakfast for £120 so why can't The George. Bathroom was lovely, table top in bedroom cracked and sugar sachets had been used and not discarded, clock needed new battery. Food was pricey but good though my... More

This was a last minute Amazon escape during the may half term week for a couple without children.We saw very mixed reviews so were unsure what to expect. Checked in with no problems and were taken to our room with a flask of fresh milk for a cup of tea after our journey. Lovely room, spacious ,newly decorated and clean... More
