We recently spent the weekend of my 50th birthday at The George, completing a week long quick trip from Christchurch to Queenstown via Lake Tekapo and back again. This was the perfect way to relax and complete our journey. The accommodation was faultless, spotlessly clean, modern and relaxing décor, comfortable beds and well equipped kitchenette. The highlight for me was... More

We had a lovely stay at The George after a whirlwind trip around the South Island. It was the perfect place to unwind. Great location, close to many good restaurants. Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean and comfortable room. Plenty of free parking available. Nice touches like chocolate mints at turn-down and a George bear to take home.

I visited a friend who was staying here just recently and I ended crashing with him because I didn't want to leave. There was nothing I could fault with this hotel and theres normally at least one thing that I find with hotels that could be improved, not with The George. The food was something out out of this world... More

A truly comfortable, quiet, well cared for hotel where the staff take excellent care of guests and the rooms are all presented in minute detail. There are top class restaurants to choose from that will cater for the most discerning guests. Room service is quick and excellent and there are many choices to order - it's not 'an afterthought'.

Modern low-rise boutique hotel in a nice location with very helpful service staff and a nice restaurant which is almost always packed during dinner. There are artworks spread out over the property that you can uncover on an art trail. Be pampered with a welcome drink upon check-in. Rooms though compact, are very comfortable and well equiped. Stayed during winter... More

We treated ourselves to a night in town for my birthday (we live 1 hour from Christchurch). The George is the best Hotel in Christchurch and was my obvious choice, having stayed a number of times over the years. We were NOT disappointed! The team were very welcoming, friendly and helpful.

There is nothing particularly wrong with the George. The staff are excellent, as is their service, but the rooms let down the aspiration to be a true 5 star property. It may be the best that Christchurch has to offer, but it could be so much better
