The George is without a doubt one of the nicest hotels I've stayed at. Great staff, huge rooms, lovely bar and Restuarant. Heated floors in the bathroom is something I don't think you see on many sub $1000 p/n hotels. The extra little touches that The George offers makes it a must visit for a luxury stay in Christchurch.

Hotel restaurant - not very exiting but since we went out for lunch and where very tied after traveling for 32 hours, it was ok. Didn't tried... More

I've reviewed this hotel before but the good thing is that on every visit, I fail to find anything that isn't perfect!From the moment you step into the small and intimate lobby, you are welcomed by amazing staff and it feels like you've returned to your home away from home. I like the size of... More

Enjoyed our three night stay. Staff very pleasant. Room spacious enough and warm. Not a fan of shower over bath but the bathroom floor was heated so forgiven! Restaurant and room service very good. Would definitely return

When I stay here, I feel like at home. 3 story hotel, spacious room, clean, beautiful landscape and surroundings, peaceful, and so quiet.

We stayed as part of a tour package and as such do not know the individuall cost but there was nothing at all that did not meet a very high standard, the room, the food and the service were excellent.

Love the John Pule art on the walls. Nice airy ground floor restaurant with good breakfast choices. I also had the ten course degustation in the upstairs dining room which is quite dark and reminded me of an 80s nightclub. The menu had too many dehydrated components for my liking, but was still pleasant. Also don't expect a grand reception... More
