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.

Our first night in NZ to celebrate my big birthday and we had a complimentary upgrade to a corner suite overlooking the beautiful Hagley Park.

Situated on the edge of Christchurch's CBD away from the re-building, The George is a haven of peace, elegance and tranquillity. Our Premier Executive room was comfortable and stocked with good quality accessories. Free in-room internet access was a bonus, and George the bear was sitting on our bed inviting us to take him home. My travelling companion had a... More

Fantastic hotel - very high standard of service, food and attention to detail in the rooms. We enjoyed a Park Suite, the room was so good, the bathroom accessories were of really high standard & The George Teddy Bear to take home was that extra touch. Truly brilliant!

Christchurch is struggling to get back on its feet after the devastating earthquakes of 3-4 years ago. The downtown is in the midst of rebuilding and somewhat chaotic. Many businesses have fled to the suburbs and it will be interesting to see how the whole adventure ends up. In the meantime, there aren't that many functioning hotels. The George is... More

This is a beautiful small hotel on the edge of the central area of Christchurch and across from a park that follows the Avon River. It's a short drive from the airport and a reasonable walk into the center of the city. Given the ongoing (and fascinating) rebuilding process in Christchurch, the George offers a complete range of services. The... More

We had stayed in Christchurch earlier in the holiday but came to The George for 1 day/night before flying onto Sydney. The George is in the more attractive part of Christchurch not affected by the earthquake. Its right next to the beautiful Hagley Park. The new cricket test ground is 5 minutes walk away.
