What our patrons say

Had a great stopover at the George. Very friendly helpful people lovely service. Comfortable bed. thanks for the bear nice touch. Would recommend for an easy location for Summer walks exploring the Centre and catching up on your rest.

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.

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.

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.
