Hotel description

There’s more to New Zealand than just those rustic rural lodges. Though it may confound the narrative a bit, New Zealanders can do cosmopolitan style as well. The George, a 53-room boutique in central Christchurch, would look at home in any European capital, so chic is the pared-down modernist décor — in fact the endless whites and blond wood recall nothing so much as Scandinavia at its coolest.

Of course urban, in Christchurch, is relative — they won’t be shooting Blade Runner 2 here, that’s for sure. The George stands at the edge of Hagley Park, which many of the rooms overlook; not only do you get 32” LCD televisions, wireless internet and 24-hour room service, but idyllic views as well.

The George comes with not one but two restaurants among Christchurch’s finest — the clubby 50 Park and the more formal Pescatore (no points for guessing what’s on the menu at the latter). You can work out in the fitness center, or take a complimentary mountain bike for a spin around the park, and if you’re still feeling confined (unlikely in this scenic, modestly sized city) you’re never far from the vast expanses of great outdoors that are a New Zealand trademark.

How to get there:

The George is approximately a 25 minute drive from Christchurch International Airport. Please contact customerservice@tablethotels.com to arrange an airport transfer.
