“A great recommended place to stay”
Reviewed 22 June 2013 via mobile

This is a charming place to stay and is a gem of a boutique hotel.
The great things can be said of the service and rooms.
The hotel personnel are affable and very communicative/attentive.

The price is reasonable and I would recommend others to stay.

The only drawback I faced was the room that was assigned to me.
It was close to the lobby and I being a light sleeper was frequently awakened by the door to the lobby being opened and closed. Hence for other visitors, I would recommend that you ask for a room further away from the action.

Dear Andylkj,

Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. We are looking into the options for soundproofing the doors through to the lobby area so hope to be able to improve this issue.

Thank you again for your review, we look forward to welcoming you back to The George the next time you are in Christchurch.

I now stay here whenever I'm in Christchurch on business. It's such a cosy and welcoming hotel with lovely staff and a great restaurant for dinner, although the breakfast is not the best. The rooms are of a very high standard and I can't get enough of the heated bathroom floor. Without question the best hotel in Christchurch, the All Blacks even stay here when they're in town! The location is good and it's about a 5 to 10 minute walk to some good restaurants.

We only stayed a night, but we really enjoyed the stay. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, the location across from the park and within walking distance of the city centre was great. We were shocked at the damage to the city but were inspired by the resilience of the people. I'd recommend the George to both business and holiday travellers.

Room Tip: Our room was on the second floor andf overlooked the park which was lovely.

I stayed for 2 nights. My wife loved the heated floor but the heated towel rack did not work. Location is ok. The concierge were very helpful as to the places we can go to.
The breakfast option is so-so, i had the continental buffet (not ok) and the big breakfast (ok).
The rooms are ok. its clean but it can be improved.
You are given a limited free internet connection which is good enough for checking emails.
i think for the price, this is the best option in Christchurch.

Accommodation in Christchurch can be hard to get these days, so to find such a great hotel where the rooms were comfortable, the staff helpful & friendly and access to the hotel & parking were easy - is a real bonus.
Wouldn't hesitate in recommend this hotel to any business traveller. Especially now as the weather is turning cold - all rooms are heated, warm and very welcoming!
Food fantastic, great wine list at the bar. Love being so close to the park & other good restaurants.
Could not fault any aspect of my 3 day stay here.

Our room was clean, warm & comfortable, loved the heated bathroom floor. Very comfortable mattress & pillows. Room service in the mornings, so nice to return at midday to find our room had already been cleaned. Internet signal poor and our 'free unlimited' use seemed to get cut off very quickly.
Most of the staff were friendly, but the reception desk staff seemed a bit unfriendly or vague. Breakfast & coffee okay, better to venture out if wanting real coffee.
Our room was small & looked out to the carpark which for one night was ok but I am sure there are larger rooms & better views if staying longer.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on carpark side, if view or privacy important

Dear Kim C,

Thank you for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed the room and found it clean and comfortable.

We have discussed your comments with our reception team and used this as a training example. Generally our guests comment that all staff, particularly reception, are warm and friendly, so we need to ensure we can achieve this every day with every team member.

Our current internet offering is free for a limited amount of data, sufficient for emails and basic web browsing. There should not be anywhere advertising that we have unlimited free use (although this is available from the lobby guest computers). I would like to apologise for any misunderstanding that occurred with this.

Thank you again for taking the time to post your feedback.

Kind regards,

Bruce Garrett

We stayed at the George for 3 weeks on business. We had a very good time and were taken care off as if we were home. The hotel is very conveniently located in front of the Hagley Park and close to the city center, and many good restaurants (and bars). The staff was very helpful and the hotel comfortable - the only downside is the gym located outside of the hotel with limited hours. We had a great stay!

Dear Coffeesip,

Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback. Staying in a hotel for three weeks gives you plenty of time to ascertain the true essence of a property and also find any flaws.

We are delighted you felt at home here as that is the very atmosphere we aim to achieve. We are also very glad that you enjoyed our location and the helpfulness of our team.

Kind regards,
