I arrived...

First time visitor to Christchurch and selected The George based on the reviews and the fact it is my surname - I accept not the soundest reasoning.

The bedrooms are very high standard. It feels like at home. They are spacious, and you can have everything you need. Services are professionals and fast. You are very close to the new center, only 15 minutes walk with the tramwaay close by. Really highly recommended
