What our patrons say

Love it here. If you want amazing service, great location and awesome rooms then this is the place for you. I love coming to stay here when I am visiting family. The beds are so comfortable and the blackout curtains are great to help with a good nights sleep. The staff are lovely and it's nice to see the same faces when returning to The George.

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.

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

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.
