The George Christchurch

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Without hesitation if ever in Christchurch again this will be my choice of accommodation. The Hotel not being too large has a warm inviting feel , the rooms spotlessly clean, very well appointed and great service from all staff .We spent several weeks touring the South Island and The George was certainly our favourite place to stay.

Fabulous clean, on trend hotel with great customer service. View and close to the park and easy walk to Victoria st bars and restaurants. Parking on site makes it easy to access and leave / return as frequently as required

The refurbishment of this hotel is fantastic, there is nothing you could want for in the room with all the latest fittings, I really enjoyed our stay, and the Teddy Bear to take home was a great touch, well done The George, Kelly

We always stay at The George while we are in Christchurch, from the moment you step foot in the front door you are treated like royalty, excellent service, friendly staff, rooms are always excellently presented. Will always come back to The George.

Even though we were gifted our stay, we were made to feel very valued and welcomed as true VIPs From checkin/reception to the amazing great professional young ladies hosting in the bistro this is a must visit place..we will be back

I was fortunate enough to be upgraded to a suite and I would have to say that even though I have been lucky enough to stay in some of the worlds better hotels the suite rated in my top two experiences. The rooms were huge, the bed amazingly comfortable and the bathroom stunning. I also greatly enjoyed eating at the downstairs restaurant where my steak literally melted in my mouth

We stayed here for two nights, whilst touring NZ. We stayed in the Hennessey Suite. It was simply perfect. Everything about it: stylish; super comfortable bed; all the mod cons; tea making facilities; great extras including bottles of water, toiletries and chocolates etc. All of it was total luxury. We loved George the Bear too : ) All of the staff we met were wonderful - friendly yet totally professional. Breakfast was fabulous and the evening meal was out of this world. Our stay at the George was simply perfect.

Absolutely LOVED the Teddy Bear-thank you! Such a nice touch.It is nice to see a piece of old Christchurch retaining its place in the city.The character and tradition cannot be found in new builds. Beautiful artworks too.

Staff exceeded expectations catering to our needs Elegant surroundings where staff are well trained attentive but discrete The comfort level is excellent and attention to detail consistently excellent

We had a very short stay in Christchurch and decided to stay at the George because of its convenient location. We didn’t stay for long but the hotel ticked the boxes we were looking for. We got upgraded to an executive suite which frankly was over egging it in that the room was small even by regular standards. That being said the rooms are tastefully decorated and the bed was very comfortable. Service was pleasant and helpful. I would stay here again.
