Husband had organised a night at The George. We have dined there several times but never stayed(its our home town). We now have first hand experience as to why this hotel is so highly regarded. The Park suite was amazing and although the sun was out on a cool winters day, we could not resist putting the gas fire on.... More

One of the friendliest hotels I have had the pleasure of staying in. Lovely food and in a great location for walking into the city and surrounding parks and gardens. The teddy bear as a parting gift was a sweet touch!

Little competition unfortunately.any hotel with a shower curtain cannot be highly rated.Our food order at the bar was lost and had to be served in our room.Their signature restaurant ,highly recommended not open Sun/Mon.Why would any hotel give you a Teddy Bear?Put your effort into service and accommodation.

We stayed at The George hotel in an executive room. It was lovely for a nights getaway from the kids. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the room was beautiful - nice big bed, and good bathroom. A great location for a stroll through the gardens. The breakfast was delicious, and it was wonderful to eat dinner at Pescatore... 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.
