What our patrons say

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

From the moment you enter the hotel the staff could not be more accommodating. The concierge making dinner reservations at a great restaurant in Christchurch. Rooms extremely comfortable - great size. Free car-parking.

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.

Service is excellent with well-appointed rooms and perfect location. We even got a free teddy bear to take away which was an unexpected bonus! Its the small things right. Great coffee and rooms were recently renovated, bed was first class.
