When staying in hotels, whether for business or pleasure, one always hopes for comfort and an element of luxury or indulgence. By choosing North Norfolk as a destination and staying in a Cley, Blakeney or Holt hotel visitors are already off to a good start as this area of the country is a stunning place to spend a trip.
So having chosen a perfect location, the next step is to make sure the hotel is just as appealing. Many hotels in Holt and nearby are set in villages or old Georgian towns amongst the gentle hustle and bustle of local everyday life. It is great staying in hotels with a story or history behind them. One such hotel is The George Hotel at Cley. The hotel dates back to 18th Century. It survived World War II bombing and the 1953 floods. In 1926 The George hosted the inaugural meeting of the Norfolk Wildlife Trust – or The Norfolk Naturalists Trust as it was called then – after their purchase of 407 acres of the nearby Cley Marshes for £5,160.
