What a great property,
It's a short walk from Victoria street where all the restaurants are located

The staff is so very friendly and very professional

The rooms are modern and nice very comfortable

We have taken two rooms interconnecting to be able to manage our two boys and they were able to accommodate this for us

The rooms are very practical and they also have free wifi Internet

I am very happy with this hotel and I will recommend it to everyone passing through Christchurch

Stayed: August 2014

Only had one night to stay on a very brief visit to Christchurch, I would definatly reccomend staying here. Rooms and hotel were very contemporary, heated floor in bathroom (we were there in winter and New Zealand has a much small carbon footprint that USA), Breakfast buffet was good, nothing over the top. I noticed that the gift store had very reasonable prices for very high quality goods.

The bed was the most comfortable bed i have slept on in a while (pillows not so much), 50 bristo food is amazing highly recommended, good views of the park. Not in town but only a 20min walk into town centre. Apart from being woken at 8.10am by housekeeping wanting to clean our room was a great hotel. Very modern, loved the bathroom doors!!

Dear Laura,

Thank you for your kind comments regarding the room, bed, food in 50 Bistro and location. We are very pleased you enjoyed your visit with us. I am sorry to hear that our housekeeping team woke you early, this should not have happened so we will definitely investigate this to see what went wrong with our systems.

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

As a freelance writer, I've been fortunate enough to have stayed at many SLH properties in Asia, Australia and New Zealand ---- but none exceed 'The George' in Christchurch when it comes to all-round excellence. Adjoining Hagley Park, a spacious inner city green belt, and close to the city centre, The George offers every thing a discerning traveller could wish for ----superb accommodation, comfortable and relaxing, with memorable dining, both in its '50 Bistro' and in its world-class fine dining restaurant 'Pescatore', A warm, welcoming and attentive staff make a large contribution to a truly memorable experience.

We have spent a fair bit of time in New Zealand over the years, and have gotten used to the usual motel/motor lodge accommodations (ranging from great to mediocre), but wanted to spend the night is a higher end boutique hotel. The George did not disappoint. The hotel itself was nice, but what wowed me was the staff. I have been across the world, and have never experienced such a friendly, gracious staff. They went above and beyond any expectation I could ever have. It's pricey, but worth it.

Thank you for "taking the plunge" and choosing to upgrade from your usual accommodation. We are delighted you not only enjoyed the facilities but found the our team to be friendly and gracious, going above and beyond your expectations. That is precisely our goal and I am very glad we delivered for you.
