Stayed 2 nights and delighted with the accommodation and the continental breakfast. All staff very helpful and friendly, too. Excellent location for walking into the centre or going into the park opposite to walk to the beautiful Botanical Gardens.

Our first visit to New Zealand and after touring Australia for a number of years and suffered some very poor quality overcharging hotels it was great to see that the George can provide excellent accommodation,food and service.

We stayed for two nights over New Year. The hotel was easy to find, fantastically located for Hagley Park and the botanical gardens and about a 20 minute walk into the centre of the city. Staff were really friendly and helpful - this includes reception, the concierge and restaurant staff. We stayed in the old house where the rooms had...

We booked the George en route from Blenheim to Franz Josef and were grateful for a comfortable stay in the midst of two long travel legs. Christchurch was shut on Christmas Day which we were not expecting: very different from London! The staff were welcoming and prepared to fit us in to their buffet extravaganza but we opted for exploring...

We booked the George for a very short holiday from Australia - this was our first time in Christchurch and NZ. It's a nice hotel - clean and comfortable, having a great location opposite the park and within walking distance of things that needed to be seen (e.g. the damaged cathedral, museum, etc.). But what was outstanding was a) the...

The entire stay was wonderful. We felt at home as soon as we saw the George Bear on each of our beds and this was only the beginning of a wonderful stay. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly and I would only stay at this hotel, if given the opportunity.

We really enjoyed our stay at The George. The room was very comfortable, and the food at the restaurants was sensational. Best of all though, were the fabulous staff, who made us feel very welcome, and were really helpful. Thoroughly recommend this hotel. Great location in Christchurch as well.
