The service was attentive when we checked in but that's where it ended. The room was average and the location was okay. Hotel is a few blocks from the botanical gardens and tram stop 13. It is also close to some good restaurants on Victoria street. All in all one of our least enjoyable accommodation experiences in 2+ weeks in... More

Stayed here for one night as part of a tour group, this was our last night in NZ. We arrived in the afternoon , checked in and went for a walk. The location is great, right on the park. Dinner was included for our group and we had a private room for this. The food was lovely with friendly service.... More

This hotel is fabulous. The place is clean, modern, and nice quality. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was very nice and comfortable. The electronics are very modern and sleek. The bed was very comfortable. Located just outside of the CBD but still within walking distance of restaurants, parks, and things to do.

We arrived at this hotel tired and hungry and they were happy to keep the kitchen open for us to get a late dinner. We had a lovely dinner and breakfast there. The staff were extremely friendly and accomodating. The rooms are quite comfortable. We wished we could have stayed for another night or two.

Situated on the edge of Christchurch's CBD away from the re-building, The George is a haven of peace, elegance and tranquillity. Our Premier Executive room was comfortable and stocked with good quality accessories. Free in-room internet access was a bonus, and George the bear was sitting on our bed inviting us to take him home. My travelling companion had a... More

Fantastic hotel - very high standard of service, food and attention to detail in the rooms. We enjoyed a Park Suite, the room was so good, the bathroom accessories were of really high standard & The George Teddy Bear to take home was that extra touch. Truly brilliant!

Christchurch is struggling to get back on its feet after the devastating earthquakes of 3-4 years ago. The downtown is in the midst of rebuilding and somewhat chaotic. Many businesses have fled to the suburbs and it will be interesting to see how the whole adventure ends up. In the meantime, there aren't that many functioning hotels. The George is... More
