Only had one night to stay on a very brief visit to Christchurch, I would definatly reccomend staying here. Rooms and hotel were very contemporary, heated floor in bathroom (we were there in winter and New Zealand has a much small carbon footprint that USA), Breakfast buffet was good, nothing over the top. I noticed that the gift store had... More

As a freelance writer, I've been fortunate enough to have stayed at many SLH properties in Asia, Australia and New Zealand ---- but none exceed 'The George' in Christchurch when it comes to all-round excellence. Adjoining Hagley Park, a spacious inner city green belt, and close to the city centre, The George offers every thing a discerning traveller could wish... More

We have spent a fair bit of time in New Zealand over the years, and have gotten used to the usual motel/motor lodge accommodations (ranging from great to mediocre), but wanted to spend the night is a higher end boutique hotel. The George did not disappoint. The hotel itself was nice, but what wowed me was the staff. I have... More

The hotel facilities were standard but the staff excelled. The location is great, next to Hagley park and Victoria St. The restaurant has a regular menu and serves home style dishes. Overall, a modern efficient hotel

We had a lovely stay at The George after a whirlwind trip around the South Island. It was the perfect place to unwind. Great location, close to many good restaurants. Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean and comfortable room. Plenty of free parking available. Nice touches like chocolate mints at turn-down and a George bear to take home.

I visited a friend who was staying here just recently and I ended crashing with him because I didn't want to leave.
