Great room, great service,great food, very comfortable decor, bathroom roomy with all the amenities,great service from the moment we arrived.

We stayed in one of the Park View suites. Amazing view though the autumnal willows to the Avon River. Truly wonderful colours as the sun set. The Park suites have to be one of the best hotel rooms in Christchurch.

Beautiful place, excellent service, comfortable room, not far for the center and excellent assistance with the information. I will recommend all passenger to visit The George.
