I have thought long and hard about my weekend at the George and cannot find a single fault or criticism. The whole stay from the friendly reception and concierge staff, the beautifully appointed rooms which are kept spotless by the fantastic housekeeping team (I gave them some laundry and had missed the cut off time on the Sunday so they...

Bustling city hotel with a lot of very good points but a couple of weaknesses that prevented it being excellent. The greeting and staff generally were very good. The bed was comfortable and the room fittings good. The Bistro food was tasty, well prepared and served; also the modestly priced wines on the extensive wine list were of above average... More

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

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.
