As one of the SLH hotel, the George exceeds all expectations. The check in was swift and easy, the concierge was super helpful and even helped to recommend dining spots and proceeded to help with reservations without fuss. The room has everything you need and they really pay attention to the small detail. The wifi was fast and reliable and...

You wont be dissapointed if you stay at the george, a superb hotel that deserves the reputation it has. The location is convenient been a short walk to the CBD but directly across from a beautiful park. Christchurch is a well worth visiting and i suggest you select the george for you accomodation option.

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. The staff were all wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay.

From the moment we arrived at the George to the moment we left, we received superb service from doorman, concierge, reception, restaurant and housekeeping.

We had a lovely weekend stay in The George. Very attentive and friendly staff - they helped us, as visitors to the area, find the best restaurants, local amenities etc. The room was luxurious and the large bed was fabulous.

I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it, it is great people that make great hotels. Sure, lots of other factors come into play in defining an excellent hotel experience. Location is important, facilities also. The property itself is of prime importance, however, all things being equal; it is really the people that will determine whether a hospitality experience...

We enjoyed our stay immensely. From the friendly and helpful staff, to the beautifully appointed room with a view, down to the chocolates and teddy at the turn down service. The location was also perfect, near the CBD, but not close to the construction noise.
