The George Hotel.

The George Hotel BW Signature Collection by Best Western, is one of the most picturesque and convenient places to stay in Norwich. Having completed a full refurbishment in 2018, every area has been beautifully upgraded in keeping with the traditional ambience of the building whilst giving a modern feel.

This charming Victorian townhouse is just a 10-minute walk away from the city centre and a 15-minute drive from the University of East Anglia, so youre never far away from the hot-spots of Norwich.

There is a wealth of History and iconic landmarks in our City, including 2 Cathedrals and a Norman Castle. The castle has been used as a prison in years gone by but has now been converted into a museum and art gallery. Another unmissable site within walking distance is the Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library, which also houses the Tourist Information Centre. The library gives a great insight into Norwichs rich literary history and has been voted the most popular library in England for seven 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 bird watching; so dont forget your binoculars!

The George Hotel welcomes you with warm Norfolk hospitality and fine food, as our No.10 Arlington Bistro has become a favourite meal-time spot amongst guests, many returning especially due to our delicious food and friendly personal service. Additionally, if you're looking for a pet friendly hotel in Norwich our Hotel offers 2 pet friendly rooms for our 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 George Hotel proves a delightful, dog friendly hotel in Norwich, placing you in a peaceful spot just outside the heart of this bustling city.

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.
