    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The George. The service and food was exceptional and beyond our expectations. Very special thanks to the concierge, Mark, who helped made a romantic proposal possible. You definitely contributed to our memorable moments and we can't thank you enough. We have highly recommended The George to all our family and friends and look forward to returning in the near future. Thanks again! :)

  • Older travelers

    I liked the quality and consistency of the service

    Our room had many fetaures that either didnt work or were substandard .It needed someone to go right over the room checking it out and tweaking the things that didnt work ar didnt work well

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Great staff and excellent room with very modern facillities.

    Nothing really, the food was good but some of it was a bit pricey. If you can afford it there is nothing to dislike about this hotel.

  • Older travelers

    Expensive, but worth every penny.

    Please put the TV in room 412 on a pivot. It is very uncomfortable watching perched on the bed

    The toiletries

    The price. It was overpriced even if the city was in good shape We were there for 3 nights and talked to the staff immediately re the situation. We had called from our hotel in the north island when we heard about the Christmas quake and were assured everything was fine in the vicinity. In reality, the city is closed, there were no restaurants or cafes in proximity. It was new years eve and the hotel restaurant was fully booked and couldn't accommodate us. There were earthquakes every night and we were happy to get out alive. $529 a night? Ridiculous

  • Group of friends
