By George! We have some exciting news to share with you…

Surya Hotels and the team here at The George Hotel, Colchester are preparing for an extensive £10M refurbishment of our entire hotel which includes our rooms, restaurant and communal areas. The programme is aimed at preserving the rich 500-year-old history of the hotel – whilst creating a fantastic environment for our guests to give them the best experience.

An extension of The George – St Nicholas House, is opening this October 2018. 44 contemporary bedrooms are being added onto The George’s portfolio. St Nicholas House is also in a prime location, directly opposite of the George on Colchester High Street. 

The George – a Grade 2* listed building has such a fantastic history behind it and character like no other. The team are preparing prior to the scheduled start date in January.

As a visitor of The George, we would like to keep you updated at every stage of the refurbishment…


1st September 2018
Our restaurant will be reducing its opening hours. We will continue to serve breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea at normal times, however, our kitchen will close at 5pm daily. 


October/November 2018
St Nicholas House will open its doors! 44 stunning en-suite bedrooms – ranging from Doubles, Executive, Family and Spacious Balcony rooms.

With these available, we will be closing off and refurbishing the bedrooms at The George and existing bookings will be moved across to the brand-new rooms at St Nicholas House. Breakfast and lunch reservations will still be available at The George.


December/Christmas 2018 
Christmas is not one to miss this year at The George! A perfect location on the high street, you will experience tantalising food with a fantastic atmosphere! Christmas Lunches and Dinners will be running as usual and you can find our Festive brochure now on our website will all the information. Please book this early as spaces are filling up quickly. 


January 2019
After the Christmas period, we will be temporarily closing The George for a full refurbishment. Room reservations will still be available at St Nicholas House throughout this time which will be bookable through the George Hotel website


We look forward to keeping you up to date and showing you the all-new George Hotel in the coming months. Please follow us on Facebook to stay up-to-date with our latest announcements.
