“Amazing hotel, amazing service = 100% a must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2011

I've haven't written a review before, but I was SO IMPRESSED with the George hotel I had to write one. We stayed here for one night at end of July as a last minute decision - and I am very glad we did. This has to be one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in, and I have stayed at some of the most famous / luxury hotels worldwide.

The service and rooms at this hotel are faultless, from the welcome coffee brought to your room to the special touch of a complimentary teddy bear and chocolates in the evening. Everything was well considered and I would 100% recommend this to anyone considering a stay in Christchurch.

Also, if you dine in the ground floor restaurant - the cheesecake dessert has to be one of the best desserts I've had in a very long time!

WELL DONE!

After two earthquakes, Christchurch is reeling from the devastation - having said that, The George is one of the few hotels doing business amid the destruction. Upon arriving in Christchurch to join a tour of the South Island, we gathered at The George before departing. I also stayed at The George a 2nd night at the end of the tour. Both stays were very satisfactory - food was exceptional, staff very accommodating, and management wanting to please.

I have stayed at The George Hotel 3 times over the past few years - its everything a luxury boutique hotel should be !

The suites are stunning, lovely tasteful modern design, spotless clean with great views of Hadley park. The hotel is obviously extraordinary well maintained with no sign of maintenance being required anywhere. The staff are simply marvellous - highly professional, friendly and genuinely helpful - they clearly take pride in where they work and it shines through. The George is simply one of the best hotels I have stayed in anywhere..... Stay there you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: The suites are gorgeous, large and spacious

What a delightful hotel! I was in Christchurch for one day on business to provide training at the CPU. The company's preferred hotels weren't available due to the Quake, so we chose the George based on Trip Advisor. I did not expect to end up in one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in (well traveled around APAC). The hotel took care of storing quite a bit of demo gear in a secure location and organized transport to CPU. Check-in and check-out was seamless - I had an email invoice within an hour of checking out. The hotel ambience is fantastic. Warm smiling faces on arrival, a crackling fire in an intimate lobby, beautiful artwork... I almost salivated at the menu in the elevator - the food was outstanding! Staff called up to check I was settled on arrival, and to top it off there was the cutest teddy on the pillow (you get to keep it and blog about it's adventures). Definitely will be back. Thank you Hotel George for a lovely stay.

The George is on the edge of the Red Zone in earthquake ravaged Christchurch, and it was hard to find ones way there through the CBD, but once arrived it was a haven of comfort. The rooms are quite exceptional with lots of extras. It is not a cookie cut out hotel. Due to the quake rates were discounted I think so take that into account.

We have stayed at this hotel many times now. Always clean, great service, the restaurants are excellent. The fact that it is only 4 stories tall makes it feel more intimate. The post-earthquake situation makes this the only hotel open in the central city, but The George has not let standards slip, and this hotel is a great jumping-off place for touring the rest of the South Island. Our only gripe: at this standard of hotel, wi-fi internet should be included.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of Hagley Park.

Stayed here during a weekend visit of Christchurch, picked the hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews. Price rather high for Christchurch at that time, but happy I booked this hotel. The outside looks a bit dull and the location seemed to be in a too quiet place. However once i got to know Christchurch, the location is actually perfect; very central, still nice an quiet. The inside decoration is great, service is correct and just right. The interior design is peacefull and stylish, the whole place gives you a very relaxed feeling. I experienced the 5.5 maginitude earthquake on june 6th there on the second floor, the building took it really well. Breakfast buffet options a bit limited for the price asked, but then again, i find most hotels being really bad when it comes to breakfast quality/price ratio, so it might just be me.
