We stayed at the George for two nights while on holiday, paying about $400 NZ dollars per night, including breakfast (about $300 per night Cdn or U.S.D). The hotel is just on the edge of the downtown, within easy walking distance. Their are a number of larger hotels right in the downtown that are more conveniently located, but perhaps noisier.
We booked an executive king room and were supposedly upgraded to the king unit in the adjoining cottage section. The room, while quite large and with a modern bathroom, was dated and somewhat disappointing for a hotel of this reputation and cost. The rooms and common areas in the hotel were also not up to par for a high end boutique hotel.
The service and staff at the hotel, however, were absolutely top notch. The restaurant facility was very nice and the breakfast included in our room rate was also extremely good.
Overall, The George is a nice hotel with excellent staff and food. However, the quality of the hotel is certainly not commensurate with the price charged. We certainly stayed at nicer places during our travels in New Zealand at better prices.
