Set in the heart of the Weald of Kent, in one of Cranbrook s most historic buildings, The George Hotel has earned a reputation for being one of Kent s foremost boutique hotels with a highly-rated restaurant and brasserie. Built to cater for the travelling merchants of England s burgeoning broadcloth industry, The George dates back to 1300 and was visited by Queen Elizabeth in 1573. Flanked by two full suits of armour, the magnificent staircase leads up to 12 individually-designed rooms, including the one where Elizabeth spent the night, which combine period features with striking contemporary décor. The hotel is listed in both The Good Food Guide and Alistair Sawday s Special Places to Stay. As well as distinctive food and accommodation, The George serves traditional Kentish cask ale, kept in perfect condition. There is also a choice of international lagers and a good wine list, carefully selected to complement the excellent cuisine. Guests can also get away from it all by relaxing in the wisteria patio garden. The hotel is ideally located for exploring Kent and Sussex and visiting the numerous attractions the area has to offer, such as Sissinghurst Castle Gardens, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Penshurst Place and the Cinque ports of Tenterden and Rye.
