Amenity Bottles

We take responsibility for the entire life cycle of products and services we use and ultimately eliminate the waste associated with these.

Refillable Amenities 

Working with supplier Health Pak we developed a new range of amenities including shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and body balm. 

Harnessing the power of New Zealand botanicals including lemongrass, harakeke, and mamaku fern the amenity range is elegantly presented in 300ml refillable dispense bottles. 

Our amenities are G E free, 100% biodegradable, 100% vegetable-based, and not tested on animals. This larger dispense range replaced the previous 120ml refillable bottles which guests were encouraged to take away and reuse.  

We knew our guests were reusing our amenity bottles but we couldn't control the disposal of the bottle at the product's end of life.  Making the choice to replace the individual amenities with larger refillable bottles allows us to reduce plastic use overall and control disposal at the end of the product lifecycle.

What our patrons say

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 lounge 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. See you again soon!

From the moment I stepped into The George Hotel, to having left, the experience was one of great customer service and outstanding moments that made it memorable. Would stay again!

I stayed at the George recently and was impressed with the impeccable service given by all staff members. Friendly, polished and professional, they were a credit to the hotel. The evening meal at the Bistro was excellent, and I was surprised to realise that the hotel does a turn down service - complete with chocolate and "George", a little momento teddy bear to take home (which I did,I just couldn't resist!). It's a wonderful hotel, close to the city, yet set in a very green and peaceful part of town. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again, and plan to next time in a personal capacity with my husband.

Alex and Morgana are absolutely the best. Alex accommodated us on our arrival and nothing was an issue. We cannot speak highly enough of your staff in general. We love staying at your hotel. Your staff pride themselves in hospitality. Not just service. Thank you to everyone that made our stay so welcoming yet again!!
