The George Hotel.

The George Hotel is one of the most picturesque and convenient places to the stay in Norwich. This charming Victorian townhouse is just a 10-minute walk away from the city centre and many of it's brilliant attractions, including Norwich Castle.

The castle has been used as a prison in years gone by, but has now been converted into a museum and art gallery, and is most certainly worth a look around. Other unmissable sites within walking distance include Norwich Cathedral and The Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library. The library gives a great insight into Norwichs rich literary history and has been voted the most popular library in England for six years running.

If you are instead in the mood for a scenic stroll or some fresh sea air, the hotel is only a short distance away from the Norfolk Broads National Park and North Norfolk coast. The North Norfolk coast is a haven for wildlife and world famous for its birdwatching; so dont forget your binoculars!

The Best Western George Hotel welcomes you with warm Norfolk hospitality and fine food, as the Arlington Grill & Brasserie has become a favourite meal-time spot amongst guests. Additionally, if you're looking for a pet friendly hotel in Norwich then the Best Western George Hotel is the perfect choice, as this warm welcome is extended to furry friends. Dogs may stay for only a small fee, so man's best friend can enjoy all the city has to offer by your side.

No matter the reason for visiting, The Best Western George Hotel proves a delightful, dog friendly hotel in Norwich, placing you in a peaceful spot just outside the heart of this bustling city.
