What our patrons say

Amazing Service! Staff were very friendly and accommodating. I was given a bike to see the city. Staff showed me how to use it and helped me plan my day. My room was very tidy and well presented with an amazingly comfortable bed.

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

Had a great stopover at the George. Very friendly helpful people lovely service. Comfortable bed ???? thanks for the bear nice touch ???? Would recommend for a easy location for Summer walks exploring the Centre and catching up on your rest.

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.
