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!

This classic high-class hotel has the best service I've seen in years. The staff are over-the-top attentive and helpful. The rooms are beautifully appointed, with the latest fixtures and thoughtful extras such as mini French coffee presses. Turn-down service even added a small teddy bear, George, to be taken home!

Loved every minute of my stay with you, and Im fussy ! Lovely staff, nothing was too much trouble and every single person was as good as the one before. Just enough attention, but not at all suffocating! My room was lovely, and the bear is a brilliant touch.

This is a super hotel and very modern. The people were friendly and helpful and the room excellent. In the room, there were touch sensors instead of light switches, and air conditioning worked (not always the case) and the food was very good.

Staff very helpful when we extended our stay at a few hours notice. Very nice location and great service. Room didn't have much of a view but the bar and restaurant were great. Definitely recommend this hotel as it is right opposite Hagley park and a visit to the very close Botanical gardens is highly recommended

As always, excellent, friendly services, fine accommodation and brilliant location across the road from the park. Bistro 50 food very good and lobby bar is cosy with great drinks selection, including Peroni on tap!

This is a beautiful high end - expensive but worth it - hotel across from the park and. Short walk to the Canterbury Museum and Botanic Gardens. Everything is modern and thought through. Good dining available in a casual bistro or upscale restaurant. Nice change from smaller hotels and B&B's

The George is in a good location opposite Hagley Park, and a short walk to the Canterbury Museum, Botanic Gardens etc. It is relatively small and friendly.I would describe it as a premium hotel rather than luxury. Our room was a 5th floor premium executive room overlooking the front entrance and car park. Comparable to what most would call a...
