Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

A very nice room and great service but the breakfast wasn't good. Under cooked bacon and a sausage that was oily and grisly. Great location. This was our wedding night and we were very impressed with the room and staff. We would stay again but would probably skip the breakfast as it was expensive and poor quality.

A first class hotel - just what we needed after 3 weeks in a campervan! Good restaurant but not cheap. Breakfast buffet good but choice was relatively limited & coffee very weak. Great staff though! We were made to feel very welcome.

Staff were fantastic, food pretty good but not 5 star hotel. Rooms were not great. Shower over bath not ideal. The place was tired. Location very good. I searched website for luxury, 5 star hotels and this came up several times. It was expensive compared to Sofitel 5 star Auckland, Millbrook 5 star Queenstown. Very disappointing

Fabulous hotel, staff were excellent and super helpful. Mark in Concierge was brilliant and helped us plan our short stay in Christchurch. The rooms are modern, clean and very comfy. Just what you want after a 28 hour journey from the UK. The hotel itself overlooks the park and is about a ten minute walk from the centre of the...

Excellent choice if you are visiting Christchurch. Convenient to the city center but away from the rebuilding areas. Staff are very courteous and helpful. They provide washer and drier for guest use at no charge.

We arrived in Christchurch after a very long and arduous drive from Blenheim, looking forward to our stay at The George to finish our fabulous holiday in NZ. The GPS took us to 50 Park Terrace but it became clear there were two 50 Park Terraces and we were at the wrong one. Not the fault of the hotel at...

It's tough not to highly regard a hotel that places a welcome stuffed bear on your pillow that announces via a hanging card that his name is George. That said, there's nothing cute about the service and food, which are definitely five star. The steaks were prepared to perfection helped in no small measure by the quality of the beef,...

Booked in for High Tea, informing them of my food allergies and they did a great job. So much food and service was amazing. This was a lovely treat on a miserable day. Not too busy, so noise level was not bad and decor was nice.
