Located in the heart of Christchurch overlooking the picturesque Hagley Park and river Avon you will find a peaceful retreat just steps from Christchurch's cultural precinct and key attractions. Impeccable service in an intimate ambience is guaranteed at The George, the only Christchurch Hotel with a one-to-one staff to guest ratio.

Enter the luxurious world of fine dining in Christchurch’s most elegant hotel. The George offers   two award-winning restaurants, 50 on Park Restaurant and Bar, and Pescatore.

The George tops the list of Christchurch Hotels and is the only Christchurch Hotel that is a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World. With its focus on luxury, The George was recognised as 'New Zealand's Leading Boutique Hotel' 2006, 2007, 2008 & 2009 in the World Travel Awards, one of Oceania’s top 20 Hotels in the 2009 Conde Nast Readers’ Choice Awards and voted #2 in New Zealand by Travel + Leisure 'World's Best Hotels Survey' 2009 in the category of top 20 City Hotels in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.

As part of the community, The George understands that its actions impact the larger environment. As such, we have made a commitment to Caring Luxury which involves initiatives to reduce our impact on the natural environment, help charitable organisations where possible, and support local artists and suppliers.

Some of our actions developed naturally. For example, The George has been involved in helping various charitable organisations for numerous years. Other actions are driven by a desire to protect what we hold dear. For example, our ongoing commitment to reducing our impact on the natural environment has triggered management and employees to develop many initiatives to ensure we do our part in helping New Zealand remain the clean and green country we are proud of. 

Furthermore, as evident by our New Zealand Art collection The George has for many years been a keen supporter of local artists. What is perhaps less known is that we also strive to source local products and utilise the skills of local craftspeople for our furniture and refurbishments.

Conference and Banqueting at The George:

Our facilities cater for groups of 8-150 people, so it makes perfect sense to hold your special event at The George. Whatever the event or occasion, our team will design a function to suit your needs and budget. The hotel's six separate function rooms can be used for a vast array of events including cocktail parties, meetings, private dinners, presentations, seminars, conferences, wedding receptions and product launches. There are also opportunities for team-building and outdoor pursuits such as golf and orienteering in the park, boules on The George’s private lawns, or canoeing on the Avon River.

All new wall and floor treatments together with new soft furnishings give the rooms an up to the minute contemporary look, and further enhance the spaciousness and stunning views. Each room offers internet and multi-media facilities, and can be themed to suit any occasion. Another bonus at The George is the abundant free car parking allowing easy access for all guests.

Superb catering is a hallmark of The George Conferencing facility. Andrew Brown and his team of 15 chefs, renowned for their work in Pescatore and 50 on Park, maintain the same award- winning standards to create individual menus for conferences and meetings.

In addition to the many menu options we also offer a daily delegate package for all day corporate meetings.
