What our patrons say

Our three day stay at The George was a wonderful and relaxing experience. The hotel is a 5-10 minute walk to downtown but a short walk to the Botanic Gardens and Avon River which provide outstanding opportunities for both city adventure and leisure exploration. The real highlight for us, after several days of travel was a complimentary laundry room on the second floor with washers, driers and laundry detergent.

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.

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.

Amazing Service! Staff were very friendly and accommodating. I was given a bike to see the city. Staff showed me how to use it and helped me plan my day. My room was very tidy and well presented with an amazingly comfortable bed.
