The George Hotel.

The George Hotel BW Signature Collection by Best Western, 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.

You will be provided with as much freedom or support as you desire, as you are welcomed to invite any DJ or Live band to the event. Your guests can be assured of a comfortable nights stay when booking one of our en-suite bedrooms, so after a night of dancing they'll be taking their heels off and bowties off in no time at all.


If you desire the hotel to cater your special day, superb quality food for all your guests is promised. The catering team offers three varied (yet equally delicious) three-course menus. Additionally, an evening buffet selection is available for those more informal affairs. Three celebratory drinks packages are also available, including arrival drinks, breakfast drinks and toast drinks for guests. The Best Western wants to relieve as much stress as possible for you, assuring you that the congratulatory drinks will be flowing.

Honeymoon Suite

The honeymoon suite is a must have to end your special day in luxurious comfort, as wooden beams and a Jacuzzi bath create the most romantic of settings. If you opt for the full wedding package - including a wedding breakfast, disco and an evening buffet - the bridal suite is complimentary, so make sure you dont miss out.
