There was a lot to like about our stay at "The George". The beds were comfy, the staff were extremely friendly and obliging, the lovely touch of "George" the teddy bear - and it is in a wonderful location. I wouldn't describe it as luxurious or boutique though. When we were taken to our room it had a very musty... More

Just like SimOne71_12 we arrived in the early morning hours of 15th September 2014 after a flight from Hobart via Melbourne to Christchurch. Much to our delight we were told that we could check into our room and snuggled in to a wonderfully comfortable Kingsize bed for a few hours of blissful sleep. The centre of Christchurch is within easy... More

I don't want to pile on. Christchurch has been through more than its fair share. The earthquakes that leveled this City have done enough. The natives have shown truly incredible resilience, and despite the devastation, life goes on in a remarkable way. Like the people of Christchurch, the George has endured, and remains one of the city's best known hotels.... More

I would rate this hotel of the best places we have ever stayed (much better than a lot of 5 star hotels in Australia). We were greeted by concierge as soon as we reached the door and our luggages were taken care off straight away then we were directed to the check in desk where we could sit and check... More

We arrived at the George Hotel very early in the morning on 30 August 2014. We were extremely tired after flying from Australia and then missing our connecting flight in Auckland. Fortunately for us we were checked in early into an upgraded suite by probably one of the best concierges I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. This gentleman's... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at The George. The service was impeccable, the food delicious (in fact the best top level meal we have had in the South Island) and the room had many nice touches. Everything you'd expect from a luxury boutique hotel. The value for money was especially good. I would recommend this to anyone looking for... More

Stayed at the George. It was a lovely hotel with fantastic staff who offer the kind of attention you only get from a proper luxury hotel. From arrival to departure you are made to feel special and valued. Only downside was music from a neighbouring property that was an irritation. We are sure that was beyond the influence of the...

This hotel is over rated and does not justify a 5 star rating. Despite clear instructions for only one bill directed to me, repeated twice at check in, the bill was confused. My mother in law was supposed to be staying as our guest. She was presented with a 700 dollar bill for her 2 nights accommodation which was very... More

The George Hotel has retained its five star facilities and service despite the massive earthquakes that devastated Christchurch a few years ago. From the opening concierge-level welcome through the room turndown services on through to the checking-out offer of the (free gift) "George" teddy bear to take home as a fond remembrance, The George provides a memorable classy performance.
