116 High Street
A handsome hostelry with 500 years of history, few hotels have as many stories to tell as this one. Its dignified facade a distinctive feature of Colchester’s characterful High Street, The George is an authentic coaching inn with a storied history interweaved with the town’s own. Preserved in its medieval cellars, the ashes left by Queen Boudicca’s rampage that burned Roman Colchester to the ground take you right back to AD60, while just upstairs, today’s travellers are treated to every contemporary comfort.

Quietly stylish rooms, an atmospheric Lounge Bar and an intimate Courtyard Brasserie complete the allure of the oldest hotel in town, for centuries an icon at the heart of the oldest town in England.

2018 promises to be an exciting year for The George, with a £10 million makeover planned. Naturally, we’ll do our utmost to keep any disruption to a minimum, and rest assured we’ll always keep you informed of any works taking place during your stay.

Showcasing the best of British produce, dining at The George is a taste of local culture. Leading conference and banqueting facilities are underpinned by the imaginative, categorically English menu at the Courtyard Brasserie, and the cosy, rustic tranquillity of the Lounge Bar.

Before anyone takes to the stage, allow The George’s historic ambience and effortless efficiency to do the talking. A characterful venue for events of every kind, our flexible function rooms are a popular rendezvous for delegates and private diners alike. With spaces for up to 70, enjoy the latest in conferencing technology and a team of events professionals with an unrelenting attention to detail.
