On-Site Gym

Our new full gym is currently under construction. 

Expected to open in mid-September this will be a full-service commercial gym located adjacent to the hotel building. 

In the meantime we have yoga mats available for in-room stretching or yoga, and Hagley Park is right outside the front doors for a morning or evening run.  We also have e-bikes available for hire. 

We can also book classes for you at Flow Yoga 

Other On-Site Facilities

We also have e-bikes and helmets available ($15 per four hours) for our house guests.  Why not start (or finish) your day in Christchurch with a ride around the famous Hagley Park? 

Please contact Concierge to arrange to use one of our e-bikes.

Exercise/yoga mats are available from reception on request. 

Hagley Park is directly across Park Terrace from the hotel and offers a variety of walking, cycling and jogging tracks from 5.8km up to 7.6kms. 

Iced water and refreshing towels are available on your return to the hotel to help you recover.

Spa facilities

We do not have a day-spa facility on-site. 

Our Concierge team is happy to recommend and assist with reservations at one of our local spa partners.

Please note that availability can be limited at short notice, so if we can help you plan ahead for your trip, please let us know.

What our patrons say

Welcoming and helpful staff. Delicious dining at 50 Bistro with great kids menu. Lovely cocktails too for harried parents! Comfortable beds. Love the teddy bears at turn down! Great central location next to Hagley Park, Botanical Gardens and the Museum.

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!

It was beautiful and so comfortable to stay in. Very clean and well maintained. The staff were exceptional. Every staff member we came across was so helpful, friendly, and professional. We were so impressed.

I love staying at The George, there is an old fashioned and much missed intimate pride to everything the staff do. Your stay feels important to everyone. The rooms are well appointed, the location is excellent and the restaurant serves excellent food. As someone who travels extensively for business there is something entirely comforting knowing I'm heading to stay at The George.
