After a truly unforgettable day at Thursford Christmas Spectacular with the ladies Club, excellent place for 40 people to stop for evening meal, good food there was excellent service from a number of waiting and bar staff who seemed happy to help and were attentive, the prebooked meal was good value and there was a good choice.

A group of 48 of us plus our driver had lunch here on 20th November 2016, for a pre- Thursford Christmas lunch. The service was excellent considering they had only just cleared away from breakfast. The tables were perfect with white linen table cloths which everyone commented on. The food came up perfect, very hot considering some had two and...

Most of the staff were lovely and this is where the positives ended. First room on second floor, the window rattled so badly I had no sleep, bathroom freezing - asked to be moved. Moved to another room (for 2nd and 3rd nights) to then be told the heating had failed! Out of date tested free standing heater supplied, but...

The only fault if any was the waiter/ress service was a little disjointed, in their defense they were extremely busy.. a good sign.. Do not go for the vegetarian option.. otherwise a perfect stay.. This Hotel was a base for the Thursford Christmas Spectacular..

We stayed in this hotel as our family lives in the neighbouring village. Unfortunately, as a family with a 5 year old and 3 year old, we were allocated a room on the 2nd floor and high up. Unfortunately this was not great, however the rooms were nice and clan. The heating however was nothing short of non existent. The...

We turned up unannounced thinking a booking had been made for my nan and grandad's 60th wedding anniversary (turns out the booking had been made at a venue with a similar name in a neighbouring town). After the initial confusion was cleared up, The George accommodated all 11 of us with ease. The service was excellent, the staff were fantastic...

Nice hotel, bit rough round the edges and could do with a lick of paint but basically sound. The rooms are clean and tidy but the fluorescent lighting is so very dated these days and does make the place seem cheap. It is well enough priced so fair enough. Bar and restaurant good and friendly and the night porter is...

Hotel is easy to find and is located well for exploring Swaffham. We were greeted by a very friendly lady on reception and our room was clean warm & had everything we needed for a comfortable overnight stay. We went to the bar we had booked and we were shown to a table and then we waited and waited for...

Looking for morning coffee turned into early lunch on a Monday, we were greeted by a very attentive young man, what started with coffee ended with a very pleasing lunch. They do a pensioners 2 course meal for £7.95 Monday to Friday and I can recommend it very highly. The roast Beef was well cooked and the veg just right...
