The George At Cley

THE GEORGE is an inn with history. A victim of the devastating floods of 1953, home to the inaugural meeting of the Norfolk Naturalist Trust and a focal point for bird watchers for many years thanks to its ‘bird bible’, it sits imposingly over the salt marshes looking out toward Blakeney Harbour. Here, tranquility is on the doorstep, thanks to the huge skies, acres of colourful salt-marsh and mile-upon-mile of un-spoilt beaches that are also a haven for wildlife. Here at Cley-next-the-Sea, with it’s narrow roads, no streetlights and a traditional red phone-box, you will find a beautiful, idyllic, north Norfolk brick and flint village that is bursting with character and filled with local culture. No wonder so many people are enchanted by this stretch of coastline. Dogs are welcome in the bar and front restaurant, we have a great kiddies menu and on the cold Autumn/ winter days we have a roaring open fire going to warm up the cockles of your heart.

    We had a lovely stay at the hotel we stayed in the October half term the only thing that I would say that needs improving is the heating as the room wasn't very warm. The food was lovely.????

    Whilst we were very pleased with our stay we don't feel they are doing enough to promote the business! It is one of only a few places to stay in this very popular area and should be packed so why isn't it? There needs to be real fires in the fire places not electric ones - there needs to be adequate heating in the rooms and there needs to be more staff and not everyone likes a hotel that allows digs to stay!

    Yes! We had an enjoyable night on secret escapes and the meal was good - only comment was we were put at the top of the building in an attack room so view wasn't that brilliant but as it was December I suppose it didn't matter too much just a long climb up!!

    Just spent a lovely weekend at The George whilst visiting family. Arrived to find a problem with our room, but it was no trouble for the staff to upgrade us to a suite at the front of the building with incredible views towards the sea. Staff were all delightful, it was no trouble accommodating our dog either. The seafood chowder was delicious. Negatives were that cooked breakfast was not included in the price, and there were no hangers or hanging space in the room.

    Food was really good especially the smoked haddock chowder using fish from the local smokehouse. Other mains and puddings were great too. Couldnt fault the service. Only minor drawback is it works out a bit pricier than other local choices but worth it i reckon.
