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.

    Excellent location, great food and friendly staff. However the hotel cleaner needs to do better. Edges and corners of carpets not vacuumed, batheroom blind dirty and lots of dust on bedknobs and light shades. In a plus lots of electric sockets in room, lots of lights and good mirrors.....shame about the housekeeping.

    All food was delicious and staff were incredibly friendly. Only thing I felt was lacking was a sense of identity or ambience; this was mainly due to the music playing throughout the restaurant, which was just piped in from a local radio station and felt wildly out of place. A minor gripe but a more tailored playlist would really improve things I feel!
