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.

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.
