The George, Christchurch, New Zealand
Picturesquely located near the lovely Hagley Park and just a stone's throw from Cathedral Square, this very individual boutique hotel is just a step away from all the key attractions including the tram, arts market, restaurants, theaters and gardens. The George has 53 spacious guest rooms furnished with understated elegance, many of which feature balconies from which to take in views of the city. As a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, The George boasts two restaurants — Pescatore and 50 Bistro — that rate among the best in New Zealand.
