Stayed in room 103 for 1 night. Room excellent, just been refurbished. Super bathroom. However our stay was let down by the extremely hard & uncomfortable mattresses. Shame. Will definitely stay at this hotel again though.

A lovely hotel in the heart of Kings Lynn with free parking. Friendly staff and well presented rooms etc. the décor in the bar and restaurant is very well done keeping the country side and historic theme of the area. There are many shops bars and restaurants within walking distance in the town centre and down by the river.

The George was a lovely hotel right on a busy corner in Swaffham. the room was lovely and so clean. facilities great. just a shame there was no ordinary bar outside the restaurant. the staff were lovely and couldn't do enough for us.

Swaffam is a lovely market town and because the George Hotel is in a central location and a Best Western we chose it. Positive points staff are very helpful,rooms are large,airy,and very clean,perhaps a little tired furniture wise,but not that important. Negative points are that the showers are powered off the taps and are old and with a weak flow,in... More

We booked to stay at the George, as we had a lunch to attend on Sunday elsewhere, so we decided to make a weekend of it and visit family in the area. We had a room on the ground floor in the new block, which was fine, very warm but think that would be the case wherever you stayed last... More

I was concerned having read a review which said it was noisy. However my own experience was completely the opposite – I guess it is down to which room you get. Everyone in the hotel was helpful and friendly and the food was good. My only gripe is the décor in the room I stayed in – it was probably... More

We booked though bookings.com, who didn't pass onto the hotel the fact we had a dog, so there was a quick switch around to give us a 'dog friendly' room. I can't comment on the difference between it and the room we would otherwise have had, but it was in the modern block to the rear on the ground floor.... More

Booked last minute for a three night break. Stayed in a spacious double room on the first floor at the front which had very recently been refurbished. The rooms at the front do look onto a busy road junction but there is secondary glazing and we managed to sleep comfortably even with the window open. We were on a DBB... More

We booked in advance as we fancied a break we were advised it was second floor which wasn't a problem, room was clean & spacious 208 but was not advised there may be "some road noise" Very noisy as adjacent to a junction on main road !! Staff friendly & there was a good selection on menu

Was concerned about reviews we had read but we had a positive experience. Good location in centre of Swaffham with plenty of parking. Took previous reviewers advice and requested a refurbished room in main part of hotel. Large room & ensuite with good shower but sadly only a tiny double bed! Well equipped room including fan as room was incredibly... More
