Staff very helpful when we extended our stay at a few hours notice. Very nice location and great service. Room didn't have much of a view but the bar and restaurant were great. Definitely recommend this hotel as it is right opposite Hagley park and a visit to the very close Botanical gardens is highly recommended

As always, excellent, friendly services, fine accommodation and brilliant location across the road from the park. Bistro 50 food very good and lobby bar is cosy with great drinks selection, including Peroni on tap!

This is a beautiful high end - expensive but worth it - hotel across from the park and. Short walk to the Canterbury Museum and Botanic Gardens. Everything is modern and thought through. Good dining available in a casual bistro or upscale restaurant. Nice change from smaller hotels and B&B's

The George is in a good location opposite Hagley Park, and a short walk to the Canterbury Museum, Botanic Gardens etc. It is relatively small and friendly.I would describe it as a premium hotel rather than luxury. Our room was a 5th floor premium executive room overlooking the front entrance and car park. Comparable to what most would call a...

We stayed 3 nights before meeting up with a tour and again a night when the tour ended. From the moment you walk in the door you are made to feel welcome. Very efficient but not pretentious.

First off the staff is great and should be given 5 circles. Completely on point. The hotel however is a bit shabby on the outside and just ok inside. My room smelled of mold or mildew or something like that and the room itself was just so so. None of this would have been an issue if not for the...

We've lived in New Zealand for 13 years and traveled the country extensively. The George is hands down the best hotel experience we've had in any city or town. It's a beautiful space, well-appointed, comfortable rooms, centrally located right across from Hadley Park, with an outstanding, professional, helpful staff. This will be our new home in Christchurch.

W booked our stay online on the hotel website which described a premium luxury room. Who would know these rooms faced a parking lot below the ground. Not very luxury especially when spending 500 per night. Staff were pleasant and trained well but breakfast was also cold. Wouldn't reccomend staying of looking for luxury.
