just had a great weekend at this super hotel,advertised as a christmas party break ,and not knowing what to expect after a coach full of visitors left on Saturday morning leaving only eight of us in the hotel.
But ,what a surprise Saturday evening,turkey dinner,crackers,silly hats, and presents ,what more could you ask for.Well done all the staff at the St.George Hotel.

i recently stayed at this hotel with friends on a coach trip ,i have never stayed at such a run down hotel my room was awfuly laid out no room to swing a cat .a wash hand basin in the corner , the bathroom had a deep step up to it and then 3 more to get to bath ,no heating in there so it was out of the question to have a bath or shower i did complain only to be handed a key to a room with no heating and offered an electric fire , the meal served us on the first evening was near unedable ,the food did improve after the first night ,i must admit the staff work hard but this doesnt make up for the dullness and out of date facillities i shant be returning there .

This hotel was probably amazing in its heyday! It's just a bit tired and could do with a total refurb... That aside the friendly attentive staff ( Lucas was superb) more than made up for it! The room, although a bit dated was spotlessly clean with crisp white bedding. The evening entertainment was hilarious with a singer ( who appeared to be a bit drunk) engaging with the audience! A great night. We would definatley stay again

My husband and i are just back from a 5day holiday at the st. george, we had a fantastic time there, all the staff especially lucus and peter are brilliant, i emailed peter to ask if it was possible to have a nice big family room although there were only two of us , that wasnt a problem so the george do listen to peoples requests, the hotel is in a brilliant location with the prom just round the corner and the sea, the hotel itself is away from the buzz of gt yarmouth and is very quiet which we loved, the food is lovely and hot and had plenty of variety, okay this hotel isnt 5star but if your only sleeping in the rooms then its comfy enough, i think though its in need of a wee paint, but as we were coming away on saturday the painter was already on the roof , the entertainment at night was also very very good and we took in a show one of the nights aswell, the other thing was the heating , i dont think they had it on at all and one night we were getting a little chilly but again no problem i went down to see peter and i had a little fan heater up in the room within 10mins

Again its not the ritz but the ritz wouldnt give the service the st georges give, so please dont read all the nasty comments, go see for yourself, we had a great time

For £200 bed breakfast and evening meal for 5 days you cant beat the value

Room Tip: Please ask for family room if there are one available just ask the hotel

we stayed for a 3 night break fri to mon i will be very honest with my review
If you are expecting 5 star think again this is a cheap hotel break and you get what you pay for ...
the staff work very hard but very under staffed they do all the cleaning serving cooking etc ..the rooms are 2 star need a complete doing up but i do be-leave they have started to up date some rooms the sheets and towels were clean, rooms cleaned in a hurry so yes dust etc ..plus you cant really clean the old carpets ..very creaky floors so you can hear people walking about also hear them talking in there rooms like a normal house ,,,breakfast is served at 9 which is 2 bacon one sausage egg beans tomatoes and half slice of fried bread plus slice of toast that was 1st day as only 8 of us second day more people so one slice of bacon and quarter piece of fried bread ,,,, tea is the cheapest tea bag so take your own cereal available also and coffee plus juices ,staff are running around to get it out and very quick ..dinner is basic and all fried ie,,roast potato veg are frozen not fresh but all ok .. entertainment is like all hotels have so enjoy or go some where else ,,i would use this hotel again as it was a very cheap weekend you get what you pay for and we did ...........

Room Tip: ask for a up graded room

We stayed 4 nights at this hotel as part of a coach holiday. The whole hotel is in need of a refurbishment. The carpets on the stairs and landing is dirty and thread bare. Our room, though small was clean with a strange combination of different patterned bedding. The furniture was old and tatty, though the mattress was spotless. The food was also poor quality and quantity. On a positive note our waitress was brilliant, she was, as were all the staff, very hard working. We won't be visiting again and we won't be going on a coach holiday again, we were twenty years too young!!!!

Room Tip: Apparently there are rooms that have been refurbished - ask for one of them!
