I last reviewed this boutique hotel about a year ago. Since then nothing has changed, the excellent personalised service remains. What is noticeable is the number of staff available to assist guests. The breakfast offers a reasonable choice of cereals and accompaniments. Hot dishes are cooked to order. Situated across the road from the Avon River the hotel rooms have... More

I expected more from this hotel after reading some of the reviews and seeing that they belong to the Small Luxury Hotel group. On the good side, I thought the room was nice and comfortable and the staff were pleasant. The hotel is not very attractive from the outside and the lobby and dining area are only average. I arrived... More

My husband surprised me as a night get away. The room is spacious and we enjoyed the turn down service with a cute teddy bear the lights on in the rooms was something special.

First time visitor to Christchurch and selected The George based on the reviews and the fact it is my surname - I accept not the soundest reasoning. Lovely welcome at reception and allocated a room on the ground floor. Very modern interior for both the bedroom and bathroom. Tones of white and silver with wood accents.

The bedrooms are very high standard. It feels like at home. They are spacious, and you can have everything you need. Services are professionals and fast. You are very close to the new center, only 15 minutes walk with the tramwaay close by. Really highly recommended
