“Every Cloud…..”
Reviewed 10 December 2011

........has a sliver lining! The George is one of the only hotels in Christchurch to be unaffected by the earthquake. There is some minor damage but the hotel is running on full steam. Normally when a hotel is as busy as this hotel is, it losses its customer service / attention to detail and can become sloppy. Not The George!
Mark at concierge was so helpful – thank you for your help with suggestions and assistance when work came calling on holiday!
Super hotel, certainly worth staying at.

We held our wedding @ The George recently. Some wedding guests and the bridal party got to stay at the amazing hotel. My guests were really happy with their rooms. I personally got to stay in the junior suite (night before the wedding) and also the bridal suite which were far beyond my expectations! Clean, spacious rooms with underfloor heating (definitely a pluspoint), recycle bins and George Teddybear! Excellent food in 50 Park restaurant and also for the wedding reception. Wonderful, friendly staff made the stay an enjoyable one. I'm glad I chose The George hotel for my wedding and stuck to the decision even after the September + February earthquakes. Thanks for the wonderful experience and keep up the good work!

Room Tip: Rooms on both sides of the building were quite quiet.

The Staff were helpful and mike on the entrance excellent. The room was light and well fitted, even with a wheelchair and luggage in the room. Guest laundry well placed for us with a disable person. Nice size bathroom. Thank you for a lovely stay.

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...
