In these COVID times, we are always looking for ways to keep our guests safe and well.  This week saw the delivery of our fleet of Beyond Guardian Air and Surface sanitation systems.  These units are used after departure to filter and sanitise the air and surfaces in each room - the units take one hour to filter the air four times.

If you are a coffee lover you will be pleased to know we now stock Mojo coffee along with our favourite luxury tea brand Harney & Sons.   Mojo Coffee is now available in our guest rooms and 50 Bistro.  

Keep an eye on The George Facebook pages for our 12-days of Christmas promotion.  There are some wonderful prizes to be won. 

Wherever you are we hope you are well and we look forward to welcoming you back to The George soon.

What our patrons say

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!

We stayed at The George 6 years ago on our first honeymoon and returned here to start and end our month long second honeymoon around the South Island. As usual, the facility was excellent, and the service outstanding. Make sure you try the smoked salmon on the breakfast buffet, and if you need anything rely on Alex and Mark to assist you. Hands down the best hotel on the South Island.

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.

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.
