Stayed two nights here, although the plumbing is a bit old, the rooms are very comfortable and clean. Only had one issue, very strong air freshener smell in room which was solved by helpful and friendly staff ( switched it off! ) Food is very good, freshly cooked and restaurant has a nice atmosphere. In short, a great place to... More

We had a nice clean spacious room. All looked freshly decorated and very clean. The Staff were very helpful and accommodating. Our room was too hot, no air con but a fan provided. Breakfast was pretty good and lots of choice and vegetarian options.

This old pub/hotel has had several transformations in recent years and has come back from closure to be a popular venue for food. I don't know about the hotel side, but the food is good, the menu varied and reasonably priced.

Very friendly, spacious room, spotlessly clean room and en suite. The staff are very friendly and easy to talk to. The food is freshly cooked and tasted homely. Ample room for parking. Would highly recommend The George Hotel. Rooms are up a flight of stairs which may be a problem for certain disabilities. But well worth it.

We had a lovely evening here with a pleasant ambiance, good food and attentive service. We like the bar area and reserved our table beforehand. The staff are most obliging. Husband greatly enjoyed his steak . Thank you and we shall return!

Lovely pub & restaurant . On the top of swaffham hill. They have a car park at the back and seating area outside .It's not a hotel no more just a pub / restaurant.Very nice menu it's quite a selected taste if you like fine dining. Very nice staff very friendly. Nice furnishings too.

This was my second visit to the Hotel and I found it as charming and welcoming as the first time. The staff were SO friendly and helpful, the food delicious and very reasonably priced, we were even given a discount off our dinner as we were staying. The bedrooms and bathrooms were as clean as they could be. For breakfast... More

Friendly welcome, nothing was too much trouble. Spacious and clean room. We had an evening meal there, the quality of which would have cost you a lot more at some other fancy restaurants. There was ample choice of breakfast cereals, a freshly cooked full English breakfast (all locally sourced). We would definitely recommend this hotel.

There is a world of difference between someone asking how your hotel was (and replying "it was OK") and finding yourself introducing the subject & wanting to promote the place because of a great experience. On the plus side I have to say the poor exterior (both back and front) give an off putting but an unrepresentative first impression. The... More

superchefnorwich, Owner at The George Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Robert, As one of the owners of the George I am dissapointed that you felt that we are 'just ok'. I am incredibly puzzled by your comnents regarding the exterior of our property. We are an independently run family buisness in the centre of a market town. We are the oldest pub in Dereham. We are not a chain... More
