A pub & hotel in the heart of the Weald of Kent

The George Hotel offers you the most exceptional of experiences, combining history, indulgence and outstanding service. Dating back to 1300, The George Hotel is one of Cranbrook’s most historic buildings having played host to King Edward I in 1299, and Queen Elizabeth I in 1573. Yet the hotel’s rich history is fused with a contemporary twist – the magnificent staircase, flanked by two full suits of armour, leads up to 12 stunning, individually-designed rooms, combining period features with fresh, modern décor.

Fab stay

Our stay was amazing and it’s dog friendly too. Our room was spacious so was the bathroom only drawback was there was no fridge in the room that’s all...


Excellent base...

We wanted a base to explore a few local National Trust properties and made an excellent choice! We could only stay two nights...


Love the George!

Many thanks to Marie and Alex, and the entire staff at the George for making our stay comfortable and memorable...
