4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

This was our first hotel experience in New Zealand. We were early for normal check-in but the hotel organised the room quickly for us which was appreciated. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Hotel is well located to botanical gardens and city centre. We had executive room which was spacious and well equipped.

The George is well situated in Christchurch for visitors. It is across from Hagley Park and near the botanic gardens and the Avon River. It has two great restaurants - 50 Bistro and Piscatore. Access to the airport is an easy 15 minute drive.

Stayed twice in past month. This place is really good...rooms, food, reception. Would be impeccable except the (off-site) gym facilities let it down badly....if this is important for you, talk to them in advance! I was sent down the road to a place where the facilities were below par & reception was "casual to rude"!

Stayed here twice and on both occasions had and executive room. This is a low-rise hotel, clean and well presented with many displays of art around the hotel. There is a welcoming reception area with extremely helpful and friendly staff. Pricing is as you would expect with a hotel of this quality but it is not outrageous. We had nice... More

As we live in Christchurch we are rather limited as to the restaurants we have to choose from now...but to be perfectly honest...even if we did have a huge range of choices - I'd still choose the George.

The hotel was very busy but the staff were very cheerful and helpful. We thought our room was great and we enjoyed our meal in the 50 bistro. We made good use of the guest laundry given our six week trip and wonder why so few hotels offer this facility. Given this is our first trip to New Zealand we... More

Every now and again when writing reviews, I find it hard to give adequate recognition to the really great and exceptional hotels that - so rarely - I find after several stays to be uni formally better than excellent.

The hotel was great. You are in central Christchurch which is pretty intense with all of the construction happening. If you are prepared for that it is fine. I loved the room, very clean and all amenities. First class staff and service.

Wow - what luxury. The staff were so friendly and helpful - could not do enough for us, and were efficient. We also ate at the hotel, in separate rooms for our party of 40, and all food was beautifully cooked and presented.

We stayed here the first night of our two-week vacation in NZ, and I only wish we could have stayed for longer. The room was modern, immaculately clean, quite spacious, and had a very nice bathroom.
