We arrived at The George after 30 hours travelling from the UK, and the staff couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating. The room was beautifully clean and comfortable, equipped with everything we needed, and after a quick freshen up, we had a drink in the bar and then ate in the hotel restaurant. The food was well cooked and...

We stayed here for one night before flying back to Auckland. A little bit of luxury after 17 nights of travel staying in different hotels and self catering accommodation. The room was large and comfortable, the bed very comfortable, the bathroom large and modern. The staff are friendly and helpful - and the restaurant served good food with excellent service....

The George has a great location, opposite a park, close to restaurants, the city centre and Botanic Gardens, & easy access to the airport & main road routes.

On arrival at this classy small hotel the reception was clogged by a massive influx of people attending a function, but that can happen anywhere I guess. The room we stayed in was on the ground floor, and was well appointed. The only odd thing about the room is the sliding glass door on the bathroom, which affords only minimal...

We were given a huge room in the Residence for our one night stay. Large bed, sitting and dining area and a kitchenette. Strange choice as we are only overnighting and unlikely to want to self cater, especially as there are no supermarkets nearby. Dinner in the Bistro was good and informal but the atmosphere is spoilt by the large...

The staff of this hotel was outstanding. As a guest you were treated like royalty. At first I was afraid this hotel was TOO uppity for us, but the staff quickly learned that while we like fine things, we enjoy keeping things casual for the most part.
