Stayed here for 2 nights 1st&2nd of November at the start of our trip round NZ.We were a small group of 8 so The George allowed us to stay here.Our original hotel was about to be demolished.
Christchuch is staring to recover slowly.
The hotel is in a fantastic location next to the botanical gardens, just right for a short walk.
The rooms very modern and spotless. The bed may be the best we have ever slept in.
The food here was superb.What more can we say about this fantastic hotel.

The decor of the hotel and the rooms is very modern. The staff were wonderfully friendly and made us feel very welcome. The city is recovering slowly, and was nice to have an oasis in the middle of all the damage. There is a park right across from the hotel. Enjoy, you will like this hotel.

This was a lovely hotel near the CBD of Christchurch. It is right off Hagley Park, which is convenient for any runners. Although Christchurch is still somewhat of a ghost town, The George is an example of what it can be again. We were on our honeymoon, and they upgraded us to a suite. The service, location, and overall experience was absolutely lovely.

Room Tip: If you have a chance to get a suite - they were amazing. Heated floors, walk in closets, jet bath, a...

We were only due to spend an afternoon in Christchurch after arriving from Australia. It is such a shame that so much of the city is cordoned off and so much has been or will have to be torn down. However our arrival at the George was a treat. We were upgraded to a suite and it was very nice. We had dinner in the restaurant and that was good. There were lots of great touches in the room including a souvineer teddy bear for us to take with us. We did get in a nice walk at the botanical garden which is close to the hotel. The next morning we left with a tour through the Mount Cook area and on to Queenstown. We loved staying there.

Located roughly 20 minutes away from Christchurch International Airport, THE GEORGE is an excellent place to stay!

We arrived short before midnight and immediately fell in love with this very contemporary-elegant hotel with a hint of scandinavian decor, its staff and its ambiance.

THE GEORGE is a mid-sized hotel with a big mission to pamper and please the guests. the rooms are tasefully arraned and the in-room amenities are impressive. There's a dining room serving breakfast, lunch and dinner of the highest quality and choice. The adjacent quaint bar and lounge are a lovely place to rest and relax with your favorite drink.

The staff members are always pleasant and eager to answer your questions or to make a recommendation. But the ultimate test of their helpfulness came on our day of departure when we were already at the airport, about 35 minutes before boarding our flight to Sydney, Australia, and I noticed I had forgotten my briefcase with my passport, laptop and other documents back at the hotel! The concierge retrieved my briefcase with all its contents and had one of the staff members rush it to the airport for me. Thanks to him, we made our flight but I had to insist for him to accept a tip from me!

We look forward to our next chance at staying at THE GEORGE and would highly recomment this splendid hotel to everyone.

Room Tip: Upon arrival, ask if there's a complimentary upgrade. If the hotel has the capacity, they'll...
