The George was excellently placed and the overall feel was good. The receptionist was excellent, extremely helpful and responsive. We didn't use any other of the hotel facilities. Our stay was marred by our ground floor room overlooking the car park which had a distinctly damp odour. However, the room was well appointed and comfortable. The hotel was fully booked.

We stayed at The George following our looooong flight from the US. Had a great meal in the bistro and slept in one of the most comfortable beds I have ever experienced. Friendly staff was informative and helpful and the location can't be beat!

Four female friends visited the George this afternoon for High Tea. We were disappointed with our experience. While the surroundings were pleasant the food was mediocre. The service was rather slow. Having enjoyed High Tea in other parts of the world we were surprised that The George was somewhat lacking. It was expensive too.

The Guest Ratings for this Hotel are a huge surprise to me. This Hotel is full of pretension - but fails at nearly every test. One receptionist! So you wait. Or get dragged over to the Concierge Desk. Rooms that no more special than a typical hotel room - not enough power sockets - and an irritating, over-active night light.... More

From our greeting by reception to the welcome from the manager, this is a superb, top notch hotel. The location is ideal, a short stroll to restaurants, shops, the museum and botanical gardens. It's opposite a park and we were fortunate to enjoy a beautiful, sunny day. The concierge was very friendly and pleasant, helping with bags, describing the room... More

A beautiful boutique hotel with great customer service - nothing is too much trouble. Brian, the concierge, is the most helpful person ever. The rooms are large with an up to date bathroom and unusually for New Zealand, we had a room with a bath. The food in the restaurant is very good but not cheap. Breakfast was slightly disappointing... More

We stayed at the George for just one night - our last night before we flew out of Christchurch Airport. It was perfect. The staff were just fantastic - going the extra mile just doesn't quite express how good they were. Our first point of contact was with Mark, the concierge. He was friendly, helpful, and welcoming. He showed us... More
