“Christchurch's Best Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2012

The best hotel in Christchurch by far. Lovely service and best laid out suite. Definitely on our must stay list unlike our Queenstown stay. Staff here were lovely and very attentive in a good location. Keep up the good work.

Excellence in every way. Holding an evening event in Christchurch for Millbrook Resort (Queenstown) I was impressed and delighted with the service, care, attention to detail and execution of our Millbrook Realty & Millbrook Country Club function at The George Hotel on 26 July 2012. From start to finish in pre-planning consultations, bookings, selections and then delivery, our Millbrook Team enjoyed a seamless and very successful event thanks to the professional team at The George. Daniel Dunne, Jackie Rozynski-Nuttall and their team were very accommodating, attentive and made it almost effortless on our part with everything where and how it should be with nothing overlooked to ensure Millbrook was able to host their guests in first class fashion. We flew in on the morning with our kit and were able to set up and run through our programme with plenty of time to spare, able to be relaxed and ready to go with confidence. The George's location and the Parkview Room were an excellent venue which worked extremely well for our 2 hour early evening canapes and presentation function. Our Team of 4 also stayed and dined at the George which was again, first class. The decor, rooms, service, food and ambience was welcoming, stylish and impressive. We highly recommend The George as the "go-to" hotel and function venue in Christchurch and would certainly return to enjoy the experience again - First Class Team George!

Had heard about The George and its reputation for years and recently stayed as options are limited in CHristchurh for obvious reasons. What a great hotel, everything about the way it runs is first class, rooms, service, food, friendly and extremely helpful staff. Its just nice to get a smile from everyone when you are used to a scowl. Very highly recommended-its like travelling back in time to when the hospitality industry knew what service and comfort was all about

Fantastic stay. Actually decided to stay there again a week later when we were back in town. Beautiful rooms, great location, and excellent service. The staff really went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and to take care of our needs. They even went out and bought some anti-histamine when one of us started having allergy issues. Would absolutely stay there again.

We stayed one night and everything was beautiful.
Rooms are very nice and a good size. Our room had a shower bath which isn't the greatest but it was a nice bathroom.
Service was wonderful and the staff were very helpful and friendly.
We would stay here again.
