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.

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.

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

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.
