A comfortable but perhaps a little 'drear' hotel with friendly staff and excellent quality food. We were advised of a wait for food service - there was a delay but it was well worth it for the fresh and quality produce served beautifully.We sampled breakfast, lunch and dinner over our two day stay in Dereham and all were of a...

Each time I eat here I am delighted. I am hard to please standard wise. The food is so well priced compared do some of the village pubs offering their 70s menus at London prices. The standard of food is lovely and after trying most of the pubs around and feeling ripped off, I will just eat here instead. Lovely,... More

beautiful rooms, both booked for work for me and a colleague. rooms were huge, and mine had bedside lamps that got brighter or darker at a touch! yes I know they have been around a while, but I've never encountered them before. Food was good, but communication with staff a bit weird. I ordered a pudding with a side order... More

If you want something other than a chain pub, then the George Hotel in Dereham is the place to go. Tasty, reasonably priced food. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Thank you all for a lovely evening.

I have stayed at the George several times over the last month staying in 3 different rooms. Each of the rooms have been spotless with lovely little home from home touches. As a female traveling alone I always feel secure here and the staff always greet you with a smile. Food is very good value for money & they have... More

Lovely room and fantastic food cooked to order. Staff very friendly and helpful. The beds are comfortable. Nightlife is great. Had our family there to eat a meal with us which was fantastic. Surrounding shopping area was nice with banks within walking distance.

Great location. Great breakfast. Clean and well appointed rooms. Nothing too much trouble. Staff really friendly. Great selection on the evening menu and good quality in terms of presentation and flavour. Would recommend and we will be staying again - as this time we have seen some improvement tweaks from our last visit.

In the last 12 months I have stayed at this hotel over 40 times. I have always been wonderfully well looked after by Gareth and Rebecca for whom nothing is ever too much trouble. I've stayed in all rooms in the hotel and each is equally comfortable and spacious. The food is gastropub quality but without the price tag! The... More
