My wife and I just got back from a trip through New Zealand and while we were in Christchurch, we stayed at The George Hotel. Don't let the dated exterior fool you, because the interior has been updated to a sleek, contemporary, comfortable place to relax and refuel for more traveling. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by friendly gentlemen who sweep our luggage away and made checking in feel like a social meeting between old friends. Our Park Suite was perfect after long days of traveling with a sitting area, beautiful bathroom with heated everything, and a full fridge to quench any thirst. The location is several block away from the city center; however, we enjoyed being away from the large groups, plus Hagley Park is a stones throw is truly an asset. What a way to start your morning with a walk or jog around level trails with beautiful views. I have to mention the staff, once again, because every question was not just answered. They went far above with maps, suggestions for shops and restaurants. My wife will kill me if I don't comment on the FREE guest laundry. There are several washers and dryers on the third floor and they were a God send at this leg of our trip. Just to be able to through a few loads in at night and to start your journey with clean clothes the next day made The George Hotel a true gem, and I will keep it in my address book for future travels.
