The Hotel is named after Sir George Seymour, one of the First Four Ships to arrive in Canterbury in 1850, carrying immigrants from the United Kingdom.

What our patrons say

Exceptional, Such a lovely hotel. Staff were extremely helpful. Breakfast was excellent

The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. Our room was very modern, clean & comfortable. Breakfast was a standard buffet with a good menu of cooked choices (some of which are charged as extra). The hotel is right opposite the park with the botanical gardens and a 15 minute walk from the city centre.

We enjoyed a lot our stay at the George! The staff is very thoughtful, the hotel is confortable, quiet with large and sunny bedrooms, large beds, nice bathrooms. Close to the park and to the center. Excellent breakfast

Our three day stay at The George was a wonderful and relaxing experience. The hotel is a 5-10 minute walk to downtown but a short walk to the Botanic Gardens and Avon River which provide outstanding opportunities for both city adventure and leisure exploration. The real highlight for us, after several days of travel was a complimentary laundry room on the second floor with washers, driers and laundry detergent.
