Small, intimate and extremely well-run, the 53-room George is the best small hotel in Christchurch – and possibly the whole of New Zealand.

One of the few luxury hotels to survive the 2011 earthquake, it’s an impressive 5-star property, with delightful guest rooms and suites and a faultless level of service – the hotel has one staff member for every guest.

The outstanding, in-house ’50 Bistro’ is one of the best dining spots in the city, and they also serve a rather good traditional high tea. The location is excellent too – 5 minutes from the city centre, and close to the airport.

The perfect base for sightseers, who want to return to some welcome, cosy luxury.
