The minute we arrived at the George, it was quite the experience. Extremely friendly staff and the room... Oh my goodness. I have never been to a hotel where they have heated floors in the bathroom. What a treat! They also had a heated bar for the towels but the floor was priceless. They also had some great toiletries for... More

We stayed at the George as we passed through Christchurch. The Hotel was clean and the service and food was good. I think we would have enjoyed or stay more if the City had been built up more since the earthquake. It was a little depressing to see all the condemned buildings. We were living in Japan before Fukushima and... More

Stayed at The George for 4 nights last week in a Premium Executive room. Modest size room but exceptionally clean and comfortable. Service from all staff I encountered was helpful, efficient and very friendly. The standout for me was the food in 50 Bistro - I mostly had the early-bird dinner (5.30 - 7.00pm) - $45 for 2 courses (choice... More

We stayed two nights and I must congratulate the hotel, staff and restaurant chefs. On a months tour down under this was the best hotel we stayed in!

Spent New Year's Eve (Dec 31st 2014) here for a night and had a very comfortable stay. The hotel exuded old world charm but had nice modern rooms with high end appliances and an amazing bathroom. The room size itself was fairly small but adequate for the two of us. The location right outside the park allowed us to watch... More

The hotel lived up to our expectations. Our room was very comfortable with various "gadgets" to aid our comfort. The Air Con was very efficient and ensured an ambient temperature. A nice touch was the chocolates and teddy on bed at turn-down time. We ate in the bistro and food and service was excellent. Staff were very helpful and even... More

We stayed two nights for a wedding in January 2015. The hotel is beautiful and staff could not do enough to help. The amenities provided were first class and the rooms were wonderfully clean. No complaints at all. Thank you for making the HEEMI wedding perfect.
