We stayed at The George for one night when we arrived we were welcomed at the door and escorted to the check in desk, we were checked in incredibly quickly and were given an upgrade to a suite. While walking to our room we were a bit worried because the carpet in the public areas was a bit tired and stained but on opening the door to our room all I can say is wow what an exceptional room, huge bed, comfortable couch, large flat screen tv's, lovely bathroom, shower couldn't have asked for more. In our room for 10mins and reception rings offering complementary drinks while we settle in could this get any better? Yes make sure you got to the in house restaurant delicious. On our return to our room we found he cutest teddy bear to take with us. What a great hotel will definitely be back next time we are in Christchurch. Thank you to all of the staff for making us feel so special.

My research led me to find that since the earthquake, this is the 'nicest' place to stay in Christchurch.

Internally the hotel is quite modern and very nicely decorated. Our ground floor room was very small but very well presented. The bathroom was very modern and clean.

Staff seemed cold and disinterested most of the time but any request was met without fuss.

Easy car parking and within walking distance to 'CBD/Red Zone'

Breakfast was okay but the degustation dinner (Pescatore) was fantastic and highly recommended.

Dear Dazman69,

Thank you for your reviews of both The George and our signature restaurant Pescatore. We are delighted you particularly enjoyed your dinner and for your comments that we are the nicest place to stay in Christchurch. Of course we like to think that we were the nicest before the earthquakes as well but admit that we do have an obvious bias.

We will raise your comments regarding the perceived staff attitudes with our team. This is the opposite of the impression they usually give, as indicated by a large number of the reviews on this site. We are glad that despite this they still responded to all your requests willingly.

We look forward to welcoming you back to The George on your next visit to Christchurch to conduct further research.

Kind regards,
Bruce Garrett
General Manager

The George is brilliant! It's a small boutique hotel just opposite Hagley Park in Christchurch. Every aspect of the hotel is at the top end! The only thing that doesn't quite have a luxury feel is the exterior of the building which certainly doesn't give you any indication of what awaits inside. But as soon as you are met by the bellman and concierge at the hotel's entrance, you realise this is something special!

The foyer inside is small but friendly and welcoming. The rooms are wonderful - just beautiful modern furnishings with lovely luxury touches. Each room comes with a George teddy that you can take home with you - such a lovely touch. The internet is free, there are chocolates left on your bed at turn-down, the bathroom floors are all heated etc. There are so many luxury touches at The George.

Also don't miss dining there - either in the downstairs bistro or up in Pescatore. The food is amazing, innovative and very good value for money for the quality you get. And this hotel knows about wine - it's a wine list to die for with a fantastic selection of New Zealand best wine estates!

I love The George - it's a great experience and offers great value.

Didn't realize that most of the accommodations in Christchurch is still either destroyed or under construction after their very unfortunate earthquake which hit such a beautiful city. George Hotel is the place to stay at....very modern rooms. The F&B is the best at the hotel...nice ambiance and vibe...great wines and lamb chops.

Room Tip: Book a table early at the restaurant it does get full.

We were staying as a group. Nathan could not be more helpful. The food the chefs served was exceptional. Facilities in the rooms were excellent even a little bear to take home. Hotel is also close to the city although there is not a lot of "city" left.
