It does have really fast wifi! Is conveniently situated to the CBD. A decent selection of drinks in the mini bar. Plentiful parking and is very close to the Botanic gardens one of Christchurch's showpieces.

We stayed here for only one night, sadly, as our jumping off point of our tour of South Island. Our car hadn't even come to a halt before Mark was there to deal with our luggage and escort us to check in. We had booked a Junior Suite but found we had been upgraded to a Park Suite on the...

Booked through travel agent. 15 minutes from airport and a 10 minute walk into the city. Reception was excellent, fast and efficient. Food and wine prices seemed expensive but most of NZ is so not out of the ordinary. Room was large (and disabled!) with a small balcony. We ate breakfast out so can't comment on that but the evening...

My partner and I enjoyed an excellent dinner in the in house restaurant Pescatore. A special fish based menu. Try the oysters with passion fruit puree and lime gel. Christchurch is still recovering but this place sets a high standard for the future culinary revival.

Stayed for 3 nights 8-11th January 2017. This is in a great location, just outside the main city and just a short walk to Jimmy's and Strawberry Fare, two great restaurants (but quite different). Although a little corporate, our room was very clean and tidy. Great breakfast, fabulous staff. Very good stay. Thank you.

I cannot imagine there is a better hotel option in Christchurch than the George. The staff were exceptionally helpful and pleasant and the facilities are immaculate. While not inexpensive, the overall experience lived up to the price. Additionally, the breakfast buffet, though not huge, was of good quality.
