“Excellent hotel in great location”
Reviewed 24 May 2011

Hotel positioned next door to the ferry terminal and close to all bars and restaurants in yarmouth. Lovely garden overlooking the water to enjoy a drink. Breakfast was a bit haphazard with several complaints over the quality of service. However if they can sort out these small issues this is a hotel to visit.

Reviewed 12 April 2011

We stopped staying here regularly after the £200+ a night and can only book 2 nights minimum at the weekends policy....got a weekend deal at £99 + breakfast per night...that's much better.

We arrived on a warm sunny Friday afternoon...sat outside in the garden..no outside waitress service available....only one person running the place...had to go inside to order then take our drinks outside ourselves...ordered two bottles of reasonably expensive wines and asked for some nibbles...like a bowl of peanuts or crisps..like you get everywhere else outside of the UK ..particularly in a 4 star hotel....sorry we dont do that but you can buy some at the shops and bring them back with you ??!

Anyway, the room was excellent..comfy beautiful soft white linen and our friends got an upgrade to one of the paneled rooms with a sea view....the staff were all bright and cheery and the breakfast was superb.

Just lacks that little extra touch that you could reasonable expect for the money...but this is true of so many places in the UK.....will start to go back again.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at The George and were charmed by the quality of this establishment. Delightful, well equipped/decorated and airy rooms with proper linen and v comfortable beds, excellent food, an extensive wine list and genuinely great service. Lovely residents drawing room next to the bar to crash out in pre or post dinner, and a light and spacious dining room (and a private dining room for larger parties). Manicured lawn with terraces right on the sea. The only reason I gave the 'value' rating a 4 instead of a 5 is that whilst the rooms (with delicious breakfast included) were very good value, dinner (whilst superb quality) was fairly expensive (and hulking starving rugby players may go a little hungry). But I am about 14 stone and was VERY SATISFIED! Lots to do and see in the area, walkers, twitchers and boat spotters paradise. No hotel car park but large long stay car park 2 minutes walk away which was less than £20 for three full days (pay by card in the machine), so you can come and go without having to buy another ticket. We stayed in room 1 on the ground floor, door to side courtyard and perfect for disabled (although we aren't) with a separate walk in shower room (grab handle / seat) as well as quality bathroom with shower. Some lovely rooms upstairs with large balconies / decks. A little bit of gentle Dire Straits piped at us during dinner last night for reasons which are obvious if you dig a little. I signed up to Trip Advisor so I could write this ...

Beautiful hotel, had a lovely four poster room, friendly staff, nothing too much trouble. Superb meal in the restaurant. Situated right on the quay, cant wait to go back in the summer and enjoy a meal al fresco overlooking the sea.

We spent a day at the hotel and had lunch. We have been lucky enough to travel to many places in the world on business and stayed in many top class hotels. The standard of food and service was absolutely at top level. The staff were very pleasant, the atmosphere was great and we will be back..

Expensive but a very nice hotel. apparently best to book on internet, according to another guest. It was a lovely place but as has been mentioned no hospitality tray for coffee but ordered a tray of coffee and it was delivered free of charge. nice restaurant and very freindly bar person during the evening. Sadly the hot water failed and the receptionist said they were working on it. No discount was offered and I asked if this was a regular occurance she said she didnt think so. when you pay £200+ for a room you expect hot water! still I'm sure they will sort it
