The Hotel staff were exceptionally professional, with assistance offered with luggage. All of the food was excellent. The location is fantastic - with great views of the river from some of the rooms, and it is within walking or Tram distance to the centre of Christchurch.

We spent our last evening at The George following a two week tour of South Island and, in hindsight, wish we could have stayed longer. Its website accurately describes this as a luxury boutique hotel and that it most certainly is. Situated literally across the road from the green open space of Hagley Park (and just a short drive from...

One of the best hotels we have ever stayed in--and we are frequent travelers! The reception area is welcoming and the staff delightful. The room was comfortable and offered all of the necessary amenities in a stylish and contemporary manner. Breakfast was great! Loved the guest laundry.

Our overall experience was very good. The rooms were beautiful and looked like they had been recently renovated. Only one restaurant was open, but the food was great. Portions were small, but presentation and taste were wonderful. The only issue was the last night when we happened to get a very group in the room above us the last night....

Excellent hotel. We stayed for one night while stopping through Christchurch. Beds were clean and comfy, room temperature was comfy, shower had decent water pressure. Service was unbelievably fast and efficient; every thing we called down for, (a salad, a shaving kit, toothbrushes) was delivered in 5-10 minutes. They quickly made us takeaway Americanos so we could hit the road...

Loved the hotel. Was welcomed warmly and room was well apportioned and the bathroom was great. Loved the bidet! Didn't stay long but location across from park and close to town was perfect. Would recommend and come back when in the area.
