THE GEORGE is a hotel with a history. Located in Cley-next-the-Sea, it was a victim of the devastating floods of 1953. Additionally this North Norfolk hotel was the home to the inaugural meeting of the Norfolk Wildlife Trust. It has become a focal point for bird watchers for many years thanks to its ‘bird bible’ and houses the best restaurant in Cley. The George sits imposingly over the Cley marshes and bird reserve looking out toward Blakeney Harbour.

Here, tranquillity is on the doorstep, thanks to the huge skies, acres of colourful salt-marsh and unspoilt beaches. The perfect place for a hotel break in Norfolk.

The Norfolk Coastal Path runs through Cley and the village, with a complete absence of street lights and a traditional red phone-box is a beautiful, idyllic, north Norfolk brick and flint village. No wonder so many people are enchanted by this stretch of coastline.

Our Restaurant serves hearty and wholesome food including breakfast which is the perfect way to set you up for a day exploring the coast. With food available all day, the Restaurant offers snacks, light meals and lunches as well as a full dinner service. It also provides a welcome setting for special occasions offering locally-inspired seasonal dishes. Dogs are welcome in the bar and front restaurant, and in our bedrooms so it is the perfect destination for a dog-friendly break. We have a great children’s menu in our Restaurant and on the cold Autumn & Winter days we have a roaring open fire going to warm you up. In the warmer months, our large beer garden is the perfect places to kick back and relax.

The George at Cley offers comfortable accommodation perfect for a relaxing short break and is within easy reach of a plethora of  popular market towns and villages such as Blakeney and Holt, two of our favourites!
