Best Western George Hotel.

A charming Victorian townhouse in the city of Norwich.

The Best Western George Hotel in Norwich is perfectly placed, just 10 minutes walk from the centre of this historical city. Although you'll be close to everything that Norwich has to offer, you'll also be only a short distance away from the Norfolk Broads National Park and North Norfolk Coast. You really will enjoy the best of every world!

Back at the hotel, you'll be treated to warm Norfolk hospitality and fine food. Almost every guest who stays here comments on how wonderful our cuisine is; what better recommendation could you ask for!
