“Fancy for me...”
Reviewed 15 October 2013 via mobile

I'm probably not the best reviewer for this place as I don't normally stay in hotels as fancy as this. The 24hr check in saw us here, the service was great (although perhaps due to our arrival hour we missed our free arrival drink), the wifi worked in our well-appointed room and I could see the view from the rooms could be great (ours overlooked some hotel utilities). All the lights are touchpad operated except for the towel rail in the bathroom, which we couldn't turn off (the towel rail probably doesn't need it's own light!) so that was annoying, the door to the bathroom was frosted glass so there was no avoiding that light! One thing we didn't realise was our gift of George the bear, who has his own blog. What a great gimmick! We left early the next day so didn't get to experience everything the hotel has to offer but enjoyed our stay and the facilities anyway.

Dear Skye M,

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed our service and the George Bear gift. We have taken note of your constructive comments and will follow up with our night-team about the welcome drinks, as these should be offered no matter what the arrival time.
Hopefully on your next visit you will be able to stay a bit longer so you have more time to relax and enjoy the experience.

The service provided by the staff was fantastic. The staff were friendly, helpful, knew the area well and gave accurate directions. As we were leaving early, staff arranged an early breakfast and a car to pick us up to go to the station.

This hotel is excellent. We had a very good welcome and rooms and service were excellent. There is also a fantastic restaurant in the hotel called Pescatore which I'd highly recommend. The hotel was really clean, room was big and very comfortable/luxurious. Would highly recommend staying here.

First impressions were that the staff were very welcoming and they were exceptionally approachable. The room was lovely: beautifully fitted out and comfortable. We opted to have dinner at the hotel and were spoilt for choice with two great restaurant options. They were both reasonably expensive, but the food was really good and worth the prices. The perfect place to go for a special weekend away!

Arrived at The George after a 20 day coach tour around NZ and was delighted to be upgraded to a Park View Suite.

The room was wonderfully appointed with all the amenities you would need and a delightful view out over Hagley Park.

The concierge staff were also on point with assistance in arranging taxis and also directions to attractions that I wished to visit.

The entire stay was flawless and relaxing. Just what I needed before heading home after my holiday.

The two restaurants in the hotel were also a delight to dine at.

I would highly recommend The George to anyone staying in Christchurch.

This place is great. Rooms are a good size and beautifully appointed. Loved the little extras like heated bathroom floors and heated towel racks. George the teddy bear a nice touch that my son George loved when I got home. I am very particular of hotel bathrooms having enough room for toiletries and make up and this place didn't disappoint. The only negative would be the very ordinary coffee for breakfast otherwise couldn't fault it.

Very nice hotel!!! Nicely decorated, large rooms, great service and staff. Considering the shape Christchurch is in after the earthquake a few years ago, this place is fantastic. Located across from a beautiful park, short walk to what's left of downtown. Large rooms, comfy beds, very clean.
Would definitely stay there again.
