Are you looking for something upscale yet relaxed? This is your choise! A beautiful hotel with excellent service - one of the friendliest staff I have ever encountered - and I travel a lot! The George is a "big small hotel" - and has everything you need for a cool stay in Christchurch.

From the moment we checked in this property was top notch. Every staff member we encountered was so friendly and helpful. The room was immaculate and well appointed. We were on a two week trip and the property had a guest laundry with all supplies provided. Truly a joy to stay here, would recommend to everyone.
