Recent guest reviews

This was a luxury hotel located right next to the Botanical Gardens as well as within walking distance to the Trolley and Hop On Hop. They provide lots of extras, staff very friendly and willing to serve any need promptly. Would stay again.

Superb hotel well located near the lake and is undoubtedly of the highest standards . Everything was perfect ranging from the premier room through to the standard of service Nothing could be faulted and the front desk team should be highly commended . Waking to the center was a mere 15 minutes and once back on the hotell there was a sea of tranquility . Very highly recommended

Thank you for making the stay and room type so amazing for our family. They were so very happy with their experience, everyone went to great lengths to do what they could to help. This was a stay for their wedding.

I booked the George as it is our company recommended hotel in Christchurch and I can see why. Small boutique hotel, very neat and functional, cozy rooms and efficient staff. And the two restaurants are most of the times full and buzzy and with excellent food But we went as a family and it was a memorable stay. First of all you may have heard about the teddy bear. We saw it on the site so our 6-Year’s old was already excited. Then the way it was delivered by the staff was in such a smily and caring and authentic way that made us feel at home even so far away There is a receptionist / concierge called Julia that is always there to welcome you with a smile and try to help you with every little need you may have On the way back after touring the South Island our flight got delayed to the next day and we knew where to stay

We celebrated a family gathering here from around the globe and to commemorate the sprightly matriarch. We had the observatory verandah off the restaurant to ourselves - and the staff could not have been kinder or more attentive. From reception to bar and kitchen and waiting staff, everyone went the extra distance to ensure we were all well catered for and comfortable. Well done, Georges, you made a very special day just perfect.

I stayed here for 3 nights, including the night before my wedding & my wedding night in the Hennessy suite. It was absolutely gorgeous. The hotel is stylishly decorated & has a real boutique feel. The rooms are beautifully finished & furnished & staff could not be more helpful. The room is full of thoughtful touches & provides items that a traveler might need. The breakfast was absolutely wonderful with high quality food provided. We also dined at Pescatore restaurant which was lovely. Could not recommend highly enough & would definitely stay again.

Stayed here when a change of plans forced us to spend the night in Christchurch and we had the most amazing stay. Christchurch is beautiful and this hotel is perfect; they take care of all the details that make your stay comfortable without being overly fancy. Very caring and genuine service, this is the type of hotel that I always look for and rarely find, one that is simply comfortable and hospitable without any pretentiousness.

After a long scenic drive from Queenstown, the lovely staff at The George made check-in easy. Our premium executive room was spacious, with a modern bathroom & a floor-to-ceiling leafy outlook. The welcome note on our TV, the complimentary ‘George’ bear & chocolates were a nice touch. The amenities are top notch & the room availed a relaxing rest before our onward journey home. Services are excellent & in line with a property of this caliber. We will recommend to others & look forward to returning to review the suites.

Our room was neat, modern, excellent shower toilet, floor to ceiling windows looking over trees. The suitcase bench could actually fit both of our cases, which is a much appreciated rarity. The staff are excellent! Loved the bear. Highly recommended!

A very short overnight stay before flying back to the UK. This is a lovely small hotel staff very friendly and breakfast was amazing. Had a great room and a lovely surprise in the evening of chocolates and George the bear. Loved it will recommend and stay again if we get chance.
