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.

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.

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 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.
