What our patrons say

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.

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.

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.
