This is a beautiful hotel, the staff are friendly and the rooms modern and clean. There is only four floors and it is a small and quiet boutique hotel.

We did not eat in the hotel but walked the five or six blocks into the middle of Christchuch where all the restaurants are.

This is the only downside of the hotel, if you can call it that. It sits opposite the park and the river and therefore you are in a very quiet, leafy part of town and not in the heart of it all.

The hotel provides nice toiletries along with a kettle, mugs and a selection of teas and coffee.

We did splurge out on the wifi but there are a couple of computers in the lobby for the guests to use.

The hotel has a sign on the front which states ’SLH’ which is Small Luxury Hotel and I would totally agree. I loved this hotel and found it very comfortable.

I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

Quiet and comfortable hotel. Service was friendly yet professional. Only complaint was our reservation - initial approach made direct to hotel by 'phone. Was told only rooms available were expensive suites. Immediately went to hotel website and booked the (less expensive) room we required. Strongly recommend both the hotel restaurants restaurants. Would have been nice to have free wi-fi available.

Was just here for the one night after arriving in New Zealand, but everything we experienced would make us stay again. The concierge pointed us in the right direction for the rest of our trip, and just set the tone for a good trip.

We stayed here for 3 nights and were really charmed by the place. Good amount of parking....to park our cars. Bang opposite Hagley park....15 minute walk from the center of town...and excellent rooms and toilets and a great selection of breakfast. Other than free wifi which they should introduce it has everything that a good hotel should have. Service is very warm and we really enjoyed our stay.

Our second stay. Location, location, location – the George has it. Right next to beautiful Hagley Park and within easy walking to the Arts Centre, downtown Christchurch, and the Botanical Gardens. Rooms are comfortable. Very eco-conscious about resources. Service and staff are excellent and very helpful. No worries here, mate.

The George gets everything right and thoroughly deserves its 5 star rating. Excellent facilities, attentive (but not obtrusive) service with a choice of two first class restaurants. Location on the park and a short walk in to town is excellent.

A great hotel with really friendly staff. We stayed on 24 and 25 Dec nights, and were thrilled by the christmas treats (truffles, Twas the Night before Xmas poem, teddy bears with xmas hats etc!). It was a lovely touch and proved this is a modern hotel with a heart.

We also commented that it looked like it had been designed with women in mind - great lighting in the bathroom, lots of cosmetic products and lots of soft furnishings!

The free internet terminals in reception were also great given we had travelled for many days without free internet access.

We ate in the downstairs restaurant (the less fancy one) and the food was incredible! Our five course christmas dinner was faultless and accompanied by great wine. The service was a little confused but I attribute this to one of their busiest days in the restaurant and would still recommend it,
