We were impressed. When we arrived the staff were extremely helpful. We had booked for a Junior Suite. We were upgraded. The room was fantastic - bedroom, separate lounge/kitchen walk-in wardrobe and large bathroom. Impressed with the additional attention to detail - offer of free drinks, chocolates, bottled water and a "George" teddy bear. Had a meal in their Pescatore...

Really good service, friendly staff and great rooms and amenities. Would have expected to have a gym on site but the one available to use was only a short walk. Food is not very kid-friendly and you do not get much for what you pay. It is very beautifully presented, high end food, however there isn't much choice for those...

We have stayed here a number of times and always enjoy it. The staff are welcoming and friendly. Our room is always clean and comfortable. We used to live in ChCh so know the area well and The George is always our first choice when visiting.

Service throughout the hotel was excellent. The bistro food whilst good was poor value. Room service food was poor value and very disappointing for the price. We expected a lot better.. The room was comfortable and quite and very nice. The TV and movies took abit of driving but we got there in the end.

The rooms were clean and modern. Although lacked the in house laundry services and gym, it more than made it up with excellent service and quality restaurant. Those used to 5 star chains will appreciate the slight quirkiness and attention to detail that makes a stay at the George a pleasantly unique experience.
