Luxury Holidays At The George

This elegant multi-award-winning boutique hotel, situated in the heart of Christchurch, prides itself on its exceptional levels of service and boasts a 1:1 staff-to-guest ratio. Here, you’ll find sleek, spacious guest rooms and suites decorated in neutral tones accompanied by dark wood furnishings and offering lovely views over Hagley Park or the River Avon. Additionally, two of the city’s best restaurants can be found at The George: Pescatore is famous locally for its Pacific Rim-influenced degustation menus and impressive wine list, while the chic interiors of 50 Bistro make a perfect setting for the Executive Chef’s fresh, classic cuisine. The George is ideally located close to key attractions, such as the Botanical Gardens at Hagley Park and the Arts Centre, filled with galleries, shops and cafes (mountain-bikes are available for those guests wishing to explore the city’s parks and gardens). Furthermore, globe-trotting George Bear (the hotel’s mascot) is making his way around the world, so log on to his blog and find out where he’s been recently.

City Highlights

The George is an ideal base from which to explore Christchurch's historic charms. Spend a day or two exploring the inner city gardens, glorious parks or punting down the Avon River. With its low skyline and Gothic architecture, Christchurch is comparable to many UK cities, but adds a certain flare to the equation - trendy cafés, workshops and galleries spill out onto the streets, colliding with food carts and market stalls, while modern bars lend themselves to hip, boho interiors and external street art. Peruse the second-hand bookshops, ride the tram or while an hour away people-watching in the park. Venture to The Arts Centre or Canterbury Museum and eat well in one of many international restaurants in a city that successfully mixes outdoor living with culture and creativity.

Dining & Gourmet

Boasting two exceptional restaurants, experience a gastronomic journey at The George. Discover award-winning Pescatore (translation 'fisherman'), which pays homage to the restaurant's name and legacy, as the menu focuses on fresh seafood, along with a stimulating dining concept, enhanced by the stunning interior. Enjoy 50 Bistro, one of the best contemporary dining experiences in New Zealand, where Executive Chef, Darren Conole and his kitchen team have designed a seasonal menu that utilises fresh local produce.


The George offers two beautiful locations in which to marry, including the romantic private garden of the Residence, a private house adjoining the hotel, and Parkview, providing stunning views of Avon River and Hagley Park - guests may have exclusive use of either. For those looking for intimate gathering, the Residence dining room and cocktail area, combined with the pretty garden, creates the perfect location for you and your guests. Allow The George to help plan your perfect wedding and meet your specific requirements, from menus, designed by the award-winning, chef Darren Conole, and wine selections to table dressings, no task is too big or too small.
