Wonderful attentive service. Fantastic room and facilities. Lots of little extras that made our stay memorable. Meal at bistro was underwhelming. Would be keen to try Pescatore next time. Otherwise, would not hesitate to recommend.

Superb service and stunning food including the breakfast. Great attention to detail with a few wee points of difference. We felt like we were not just another number. Very good location. Thank-you we look forward to staying again in the future.

First class. Great service. Wonderful restaurant. Centrally located. Next to the park. Will not disappoint. I was there on a motorcycle and they were kind enough with tips re ferry to the North Island. Lots of restaurants and entertainment in the area.

As usual the service we received at The George was outstanding.... very attentive without being intrusive. Our room was very comfortable and a nice taste of a luxurious getaway - I would definitely recommend The George for a couples retreat.

The best boutique Hotel in Christchurch. This is the 6th time I have stayed and the only negative is it is never long enough! Rooms are gorgeous and the staff are very service orientated to ensure this feels like a home away from home!
