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 were a party of 6 booked in for lunch on New Years Day. There were obviously enormous issues surrounding the change of ownership which had resulted in the staff on duty being very overworked. Despite this, the lady who served us was delightful, friendly and helpful, and the meal was universally declared delicious. We all felt that the two members of staff that we met deserved a special commendation so I am posting this review and giving the hotel 4 stars, despite the fact that the hotel obviously needs some redecorating and updating. We will definitely return and look forward to meeting the new owners.

    We had a lovely weekend at The George. Comfortable room with perfect Norfolk views, superb evening meal and breakfast and there’s a lovely atmosphere to the place. We’ll definitely be back.

    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.
