4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

I stayed one night for a work conference. My room was large with an enormous and very comfortable bed and the bedroom area was very clean. I was disappointed that there was no extractor fan in the bathroom which got very steamy. The room was very quiet considering the city centre location. Lovely breakfast too.

Stayed at the George on Sunday night. Great location, short walk from the station. The hotel is lovely, quick efficient check in. Our room faced the Dome was quiet with good facilities and very comfortable bed. The Tempus bar is nice with good choice of cocktails. Plenty to choose from at breakfast. All staff were friendly. I would definitely recommend... More

Nice hotel but lacking something ... just not sure what it was.. Check in took too long for my liking... although it was the weekend the All Blacks were in town so probably fairly busy everywhere.. And they really should do something about the tight entrance..

After booking the 'treat your partner' package I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our superior room was lovely, spacious and clean. Unfortunately our view was of another building and we could see directly into some offices, but you can't always get a stunning view! We went to the gorgeous Tempus bar for our free champagne which was thoroughly enjoyable and went... More

The great central location and the beautiful historic building sold it at first sight. The rooms were clean and modern and the bedding was very comfortable. The staff (particularly young Stewart) were uniformly helpful and kind. We had dinner in the restaurant and it was excellent. Service was above and beyond. Would absolutely stay there again. Very good value for... More

If you like your Doormen clad in kilts, with impeccable manners and service, read on! So conveniently situated with attention to style and quality. Beautiful building, comfortable bedrooms. Stayed many times. You may find George Street noisy so request a quiet room. Really good choice at breakfast including pancakes freshly made. Very helpful staff throughout. It wouldn't be Christmas without... More

The breakfast room and options were very nice. THe bar area was fun with good food options. The rooms were nice. Very small, but as an American... More
