Best Western George Hotel
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Swaffham
Reviewed June 26, 2014

Ideal for holiday with pet - plenty of walks nearby and hotel very dog friendly
Breakfast excellent, plenty of choice. Bedrooms ideal for pets as all on ground floor. Night porter very helpful for late night dog walkers.

Thank you for sharing your experience of staying at The George.

I am delighted to learn that you were well looked after and enjoyed your stay.

Pleased that breakfast hit the spot, hopefully you were fully fuelled for plenty of dog walking activities.

Thank you again for your review and we look forward to welcoming you and your lovely dog back to our Hotel in the near future.

Kind regards

Superb cooked breakfast and very helpful staff. Avoid rooms at the back as they have shower attachments over bath. Location is excellent for Swaffham town centre and there are two or three good pubs. Avoid The Greyhound though!

The George Hotel is an old fixture in Swaffham and the place runs like clockwork. The rooms are
not luxurious but they are clean and comfortable and everything works. Bathrooms are small but there is plenty of hot water.

Great breakfast and all day menus. Friendly and competent staff. The George is centrally located in the town. There is private parking behind the hotel. Great for a short stay.

Room Tip: Get a room that overlooks the parking lot and not the road.

Extended weekend in this part of the country - favourable weather and much to see in relatively short distance. Have been to this hotel on previous occasions and been impressed, so no question of not returning. The rooms were comfortable and very clean, bathroom was small, but adequate. The staff were friendly and helpful. The meals were of a very good standard, both in presentation and variety. The value of our stay was outstanding. Still much to see in the area and when next visiting there will be no doubt we will be retuning to this location.

Room Tip: In summer would suggest that rooms at back of hotel(other side to car park) are preferable - cooler...

We stayed here overnight Friday to Saturday, and found this to be a lovely hotel with very friendly staff. The room was clean, looked recently decorated, and (since it was at the back of the hotel) very quiet. We ate in the bar - a good value menu with plenty of choice, and some good real ales. The lady behind the bar was particularly helpful, but in fact all the staff without exception gave us good customer service. In the morning, the breakfast was plentiful and the service efficient. We left wishing we had booked for longer. We will definitely return.
