Rooms though could do with being updated and one of the beds seemed smaller than an actual double bed Good value for money, we had a weekend break which included a fabulous breakfast, nice start to the day The staff were all very friendly and nothing was too much trouble .

Pre booked our table which wasn't ready when we arrived. After some rearranging of crockery and cutlery we were shown to a table. Pot of tea was brought out but no milk. After 5 mins I asked for milk and it was brought to table a minute or so later. By this time tea in pot had lost heat and... More

I stayed here for one night as I had a meeting in Dereham the next day. The room and bathroom were both spacious and clean. Lots of parking with a security barrier. The breakfast was lovely and free wifi a real bonus. Only very minor gripe was that the television was on the small side but this was a replacement... More

I booked this hotel ages ago as it was close to wedding venue that I had to go to. 12 of my family stayed here over Friday and Saturday, including 2children. The staff were lovely, the rooms were immaculate and the food was amazing. They were very child friendly and catered for all our needs. I would definitely stay here... More

8 of my family stayed on Friday night followed by another 4 on Saturday. We needed a hotel near Hunter's Hall as we were going to a wedding. On Friday most of our party arrived close to 9, however the chef and staff served up a brilliant meal despite the late hour. On Saturday we had wonderful breakfasts before heading... More

My sister and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. We found the staff to be very helpful, the food good and the beds comfortable. I need a gluten free diet and Gareth made sure that g/f sausages were available so that I could have a full English breakfast and dishes for my evening meal were adapted to my... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your meal at the George Hotel. I am sorry that you were disappointed by the crab starter. It is as described on the menu, a starter with salad, grapefruit and avocado. If you were not satisfied our opportunity to rectify this would have been when the staff checked back... More

We stayed here as part of a group of friends recently. We had one of the annex rooms away from the main building which, whilst being a 70s building, had been very well refurbished and turned into a modern ensuite; though do be aware that rooms 9 and 10 are over the kitchen and the fan did wake me up...

As previous comments:) We had the pleasure in recommending - untried - this hotel in Dereham. It had had a chequered history in the time we have been in Norfolk, so was a little twitchy about using or even recommending. I need not have worried. Everyone in the group of 10 were very satisfied and delighted with the service, food... More
