From our greeting by reception to the welcome from the manager, this is a superb, top notch hotel. The location is ideal, a short stroll to restaurants, shops, the museum and botanical gardens. It's opposite a park and we were fortunate to enjoy a beautiful, sunny day. The concierge was very friendly and pleasant, helping with bags, describing the room... More

A beautiful boutique hotel with great customer service - nothing is too much trouble. Brian, the concierge, is the most helpful person ever. The rooms are large with an up to date bathroom and unusually for New Zealand, we had a room with a bath. The food in the restaurant is very good but not cheap. Breakfast was slightly disappointing... More

We stayed at the George for just one night - our last night before we flew out of Christchurch Airport. It was perfect. The staff were just fantastic - going the extra mile just doesn't quite express how good they were. Our first point of contact was with Mark, the concierge. He was friendly, helpful, and welcoming. He showed us... More

Amazing service from the moment I walked in the door. Nothing was too much hassle for the amazing staff. Sarah at the bar was outstanding and her drink recommendations were bang on - I'v now been converted to NZ made gin. I'd come back just for the food at 50 Bistro. The room was spacious and the bed was amazingly... More

Hope that an email would be sent prior to our arrival advising the transportation between airport and the hotel. We had a great time in room, but it took a little bit walk to the restaurant nearby. It seems people nearby doesn't quite like Asian as they shouted at us near the entrance of the hotel.

Stayed here for our 10 year wedding anniversary and booked a normal room. When we checked in - found out we were upgraded to one of their top rooms free of charge. From the time we arrived until the time we left, nothing was a problem and we were looked after faultlessly. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking... More

50 Bistro food was exceptional with great service. The concierge, Mark, is the best! Stay here, you will love it. The entire staff rocks! Everyone is helpful, friendly and caring. They recommended some great restaurants, including Kum Pun Thai nearby, which was outstanding. Mark found us a place to fix eyeglasses. He also recommended a great men's hair salon. We... More
