About Us

Pinnacle of luxurious comfort.

Line divider

The George, embodies the pinnacle of luxurious comfort and is renowned for providing a personalised and attentive experience during your stay at this boutique hotel, a member of the distinguished Small Luxury Hotels of the World portfolio and part of the Considerate Collection.  Situated in the heart of Christchurch, overlooking the picturesque Hagley Park and Avon River, the hotel offers tranquil accommodation just steps away from the cultural precinct and major attractions.  Impeccable service in an intimate ambience is guaranteed at The George.  

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.  The pioneering spirit of our forefathers, marked by visionary entrepreneurship, played a crucial role in the growth of Christchurch into the beautiful city it is today—an esteemed destination in New Zealand. 

Formerly known as the Arlington Motor Lodge (1974), Avon Park Motor Hotel (1977), Park Hotel (1982), and, since 1987, The George, the hotel has a rich history. 

Managed by Brook Serene & Co. Ltd, The George Christchurch is owned by Toranomon Jitsugyo Kaikan Co. Limited (TJK), with Mr. Yoshi Kawamura as the owner.

From the moment you walk through the front doorway of The George hotel, it feels like coming home. Familiar faces with smiles and enthusiastic welcomes and a feeling that, although you want to rush up to your beautiful room, the idea of staying in the bar longe area for a beverage and a snack is so inviting also. This is a little haven of peace and luxury only such a short distance from the city energy that Christchurch has in spades. I am torn – I want to tell everyone how amazing The George hotel is – but a part of me wants to keep it to myself! Either way, when I am fortunate enough to visit again, it will feel cozy and luxurious because that’s what they do so well.
