Fully refurbished Essex based Iconic hotel with 500 years of history and character. Quirky Rooms, Bar, Restaurant, Afternoon Tea room and Event space for private parties.

Restored to its former glory, The George Hotel has proudly sat on Colchester High Street in Essex for over 500 years. It has always been at the centre of bustling life in England’s oldest recorded town and with historical artefacts, medieval cellars dated back to AD60, period features and beautiful beams; it really is one of a kind and a place to remember!

Featuring a stylish bar, lounge and restaurant, The George has 49 heritage guest en-suite rooms decorated in warm tones, have super comfortable beds and smart TVs, while the individual suites boast king size beds, some with freestanding bath, Bang & Olufsen sound systems and coffee machines. All rooms are full of designer touches and period features.

The town and hotel have proven links to Queen Boudica and the historic Colchester castle is a mere 2 minute walk from the hotel. We are just a 15 minute drive from Beth Chatto Gardens and Colchester Zoo as well as to the Essex beaches. Guests can enjoy cocktails in our Secret Courtyard and trendy bar, delicious locally sourced food enjoyed in our restaurant and Afternoon Tea in our new Tea room 'Tea at the George'.

  • A Sunday Afternoon Visit


    We popped into the George hotel on Sunday 28th of May, this was our first visit since they reopened. The inside decoration was lovely, although as the sun was out we sat outside. I had a quick peek in the restaurant and it looked fantastic. The waiter, who has been there for many years was as good as ever. He is always ready to say hello and nothing is too much trouble. We had a lovely relaxing drink, we will definitely be returning for a meal soon.
