Guest reviews for The George Christchurch

5 out of 5

Excellent service

The staff at this hotel was superb. Our room was small but well-appointed: heated bathroom floors, nice linens. Ideal location. Easy walking distance to the tram that heads downtown, and just across the street from Hadley Park. In another direction, lots of good ethnic food. Highly recommended if you like being pampered.
