When I asked the barman if the hotel had a table D'hote, he didn't know what I meant. My starter was pigs ears. This consisted of 2 lettuce leaves with some crispy tasteless bits, with croutons. My second course was Chicken Kiev. This came with a crispy crumb coating, with chopped onions on the top, and sitting on a bed...

Central location, lovely garden, with far reaching views to the mainland, we peacefully sat and watched the boats and ships coming in to port. We drank wine and soft drinks outside, whilst the children played on the beach below us, which was very pleasant,

In the past we considered The George a good hotel and restaurant but our recent experience was simply terrible!! We were a party of 10. We had to ask for menus after 15 minutes, eventually ordered. one hour and 20 minutes later our food started to arrive in drips and draps. After a further 15 minutes we asked when the...

It's the second time I've stayed at The George Hotel and I've enjoyed both visits. It is a lovely old building, next door to Yarmouth castle, with views of the sea and its own little beach at the end of the garden. The staff are very nice and the food is lovely (we had breakfast dinner and afternoon tea there)....

Having had to rearrange our trip due to illness the hotel staff could not have been more helpful. Comfortable room, good food and friendly staff made our brief stay very enjoyable. Looking forward to returning.

Our £170 room (no. 23) was nice but overpriced and nothing like the one pictured on Booking.com. It was small, dark and had no view. My partner was very disappointed as he'd chosen the room as a birthday treat for me and had really pushed the boat out. We were also annoyed as we'd booked a double but our room...

We were sincerely sorry that your room did not match your expectations. As I am sure you will appreciate, The George is an historical building and no two of our bedrooms are the same. We are sometimes limited with the pictures we can display on third party booking sites but endeavour to provide an overview of each bedroom category. Whilst...
