Why we recommend The George

The George in New Zealand boasts an impressive one-to-one staff to guest ratio meaning the service is top-notch throughout. The food is fantastic, and the property also has its own art collection celebrating local New Zealand born artists. If you can tear yourself away from the comfortable rooms then Christchurch’s main sites are just a short stroll away. Key attractions including the Botanic Gardens, Canterbury Museum, and Christchurch Art Gallery.”
