I visited Christchurch for a day as I used to work there before the earthquake. The George was wonderful from every point of view; service, comfort, style. I especially loved the special touches like offering you a drink when you arrive. It lived up,to its repuation. I hope to come back soon!

Ideally located in that it's a 20 minute walk from the earthquake hit downtown core. The service is excellent. A very can do attitude. The hotel was well built so it has survived the big earthquake. We had a 4.8 while there and while we got a lamp topple over, we were unscathed. On the negative side, their prices for...
