Australasia’s Leading Luxury Hotel Villa 2016 & 2017 in the annual World Travel Awards.

Built in the 1950’s, this three-bedroom character villa has been recently restored to the highest standards, offering the ultimate in exclusive luxury accommodation. Set adjacent to the main building The Residence offers the best of both worlds – access to full hotel services, but the privacy and exclusiveness of a private villa.

The Residence is available in a number of configurations, with the three en-suite bedrooms being able to be rented individually or combined as either a one-bedroom suite, a two-bedroom suite with one shared living room, or exclusive use of the entire three bedroom villa. The latter option includes the exclusive use of the ground floor kitchen, dining room and library as well as access to the hotel gardens.

In addition to luxury furniture and fittings in keeping with the style of the era such as wooden wall panelling and ceiling batons and marble benchtops, The Residence has been updated with the latest technology that has been discretely and tastefully incorporated to ensure guests do not lack modern comforts. The building is fully insulated with triple-glazed windows, an air-conditioning system that pulls fresh air from outside and filters out impurities before heating or cooling to the desired temperature, underfloor bathroom heating, demist mirrors, ultra-high definition TVs, SKY Select with over 50 channels, touch sensitive light switches and a full automation system capable of controlling heating, sound, lighting and curtains all from a user-friendly remote or wall touch-screen. In addition to the above, the master suite has a built-in humidity control system – ideal for recovery after long air-travel, a gas fireplace, Nespresso coffee machine and dining table for up to eight guests.

What our patrons say

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.
