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.

The hotel has good modern rooms and is conveniently located across from a large park. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant on the ground floor has great food and very helpful staff. We spent a couple of nights around the firepit tables and the outside seating area and the staff were always attentive. The free wifi, nightly... More

Excellent food, if a little expensive by New Zealand standards. The rooms are excellent, as are the staff. Christchurch is not for the faint hearted, the damage inflicted by the earthquake is devastating and shocking. The George was lucky to be unscathed. The bear is a nice touch.

I would like to have given the hotel a rating of "excellent," but there were some wrinkles that were unexpected from a "luxury boutique" hotel. However, to their credit, when I raised these to the General Manager they were addressed appropriately and with sincerity. The positives are that this is a very nice hotel (aesthetically and the nature of rooms... More
