The location, service, ambience of the George was superb. I'd be delighted to have the chance to stay again if in Christchurch. I'd highly recommend to anyone that is looking for a little luxury whilst in town.

Outstanding!! The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. It felt more like staying with friends than as a guest in a hotel. The room was excellent as were the rest of the facilities. The location is ideal, being close to the city and Hagley Park.

Congratulations The George..... A great hotel to stay in Christchurch with attention to detail and great staff. Clean rooms and restaurant to meet family needs. Location good and close to Park. Low level accommodation was also a plus for us. Top marks we hope to be back. George Bear given to guests on the first night was special. Thank you.

The hotel is amazing, modern and comfortable. We arrived earlier and they made all the arrangements for an early check in, really concerned about our comfort and well being. The staff is the best I've ever seen. All of them. Whenever I come to Christchurch I will definatly stay at The George again and again.
