The staff really push the boat out with hospitality here. The room was modern and beautiful. The bistro restaurant had a buzz about it - a warm and happy atmosphere. The food was unpretentious - good, local ingredients, superbly cooked and presented. While we were out at dinner, more homely touches had been added to the room... Next morning at...

Stayed a couple of nights in Christchurch & was very happy to have found The George. Great location, super friendly staff & modern well-equipped rooms. We also had drinks at the bar & a very nice dinner in the restaurant. A bit pricey but a good experience & there are some lovely helpful staff working there.

We had trouble finding the hotel, but that was just down to our satnav. The staff were, in the main, very helpful and made the checking in procedure very simple. We did not have a great view from our room, but it is the quality of the room as well as sleep quality that counts. Both were very good. As...

Have enjoyed very good meals at Pescatore previously. Was a bit disappointed with the reception at check in out of hours, and the poor response to a later checkout request. Having arrived after midnight, and paid over 400NZD for the room, I did wonder whether more accommodation could have been made with regard to a later checkout until perhaps 2pm....

Fast and friendly in- outchecking. Nice and quiet rooms and excellent restaurant. Good location by the Botanic Garden and the tram. Free and easy parking and also easy to go to the Airport. And to top it all: The George Bear!

The personnel are exceptional. The service is genuinely committed, friendly and effective. It is also, based on several stays, consistent. The restaurants are also exceptional. The rooms are of a high standard but with some minor irritations - switch labels hard to read; some reading lighting could be improved. Its great that George the Bear still arrives and demands to...

We enjoyed staying at this hotel. Clean, well located and the service was good. It was not exceptional and the price for this hotel was very much a price you pay for excellent. Christ Church is not a very exciting place due to all the closed places and damage left from the earthquake. It is sad that so much damage...

The George is a great place to stay, in a great location!!! The staff is some of the best I've seen and I know. I own a hotel in downtown Chicago. I highly recommend The George to everyone. Staying there was one of the highlights of our trip.

This hotel is well situated and small enough to feel like home away from home. My room had a lovely view of neighboring trees with a nice deck to enjoy it. The only criticism I have is with the housekeeping. The hard floors in my room were dirty and there was a lot of dust.
