From the outside, you might think the hotel is a relic out of the 80s, but don't let looks deceive you. I love The George and I can't think of a better option in Christchurch. The hotel is part of the Small Luxury Hotels (SLH) of the World group and it really is a small luxury hotel - it has understated elegance. The rooms are perfect - and come complete with "George" - a small teddy bear- just an example of the small luxury touches at the hotel. The two restaurants are fabulous - don't bother eating anywhere else. And did I mention the beds are perfect - absolutely perfect. The amenities are beautiful (and generous) too. Nathan Maynard is one of the 'fixtures' at The George - and nothing is too much trouble for him.
I much prefer a small boutique hotel like The George to a large chain hotel - it's much more personal and you feel like the staff have become your friends. We've stayed here a few times and are never disappointed. (The ONLY downside for me is that wifi is charged - it's only $15 a day - but I'd love to see The George do away with this charge - it's a constant bugbear of mine and not what I expect from a 5 star boutique hotel.)
