We always enjoy our stay at The George. The service is exemplary, the beds super comfy and the restaurants excellent. No better place to stay in Christchurch right on the edge of Hagley Park. We especially love getting 'George' the toy bear left on the bed when the room is made up. A nice touch.

The George Hotel is an exquisite place to stay. Celebration of my Darling Mothers 82 nd Birthday. Following check in we were upgraded to a Junior Suite & then Nautilus Champagne & Macaroons arrived to the Suite. Pescatore Restaurant was outstanding & the girls had Bolle of course!

The room whilst clean looked tired.The hallway to the room was also scruffy. I am being quite critical but when you are paying beyond 400.00 per night you have high expectations. I was also challenged about my booking-we booked with breakfast included and I needed to show proof of this from a link through wotif. Embarrassing and unnecessary-all records should...

A good hotel with excellent service, but disappointing restaurant. Staff were very friendly and efficient, bedrooms well appointed and public areas welcoming. The main course of the 5-course degustation dinner menu was disappointing.

This is a quality hotel. They pay great attention to service. Rooms were very nice and comfortable. The location is very convenient also. And the breakfast which was included was wonderful. We were very pleased with our choice.

Loved this hotel. We stayed twice during our 5 week trip to New Zealand and enjoyed it both times. Lovely modern rooms, helpful and friendly staff, great food and 2 teddy bears to take home as a bonus. What more can I say. Highly recommended!

Very accommodating at short notice. Personal attention from reservation staff, not an offshore booking department. Very nice room and common areas, understated and elegant. Excellent location. Without question the best in Christchurch.

Our go to place for something special! We have eaten here many times and it is consistently fantastic! From the food, service and ambience. I had scallops, then tuna and wow the coconut sago was Devine. We will be back. Might even call in for a cup of coffee at the weekend. Yes you can do that too!

Spent one night here and loved it. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The room was lovely, extremely clean and comfortable. Touch sensors for the lights and air conditioning. And a good view. Located so that it is easy to walk to the centre of town. Wish we could have stayed for a few more nights

This time a ground floor room facing the garden. Very peaceful. This hotel has everything you need. Service is great, and you get to take home George Bear as well. Already looking forward to my next stay sooner rather than later!
