This riverside resort is more than your average hotel – it’s a romantic, boutique retreat, oozing style and tranquillity, yet still within walking distance of the city centre.

The George, Christchurch

50 Park Terrace
Industry rating:

The George is a hotel of contrasts: its food and service are both impeccable and luxurious, but its design is simple and elegant – more humble than lavish. Its atmosphere is relaxed and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Even the guest rooms are laid back in style, with contemporary furnishings, bundles of space and calming park or garden views. We can’t mention the rooms without talking about the beds either: big and bold, they’re sumptuously comfortable with more pillows than you can count. Bedtime bliss.

Why we recommend The George Christchurch

  • Two award-winning restaurants to choose from: 50 Bistro and Pescatore
  • Centrally located, with views across verdant Hagley Park – Christchurch’s largest open space – and the River Avon
  • Named ‘New Zealand’s Leading Boutique Hotel’ for eight consecutive years
  • Complimentary mountain bike hire
  • One-to-one staff to guest ratio for an unmatched level of service

Place a bet at New Zealand’s first casino

Whether you’re a high-roller or a gambling newbie, a short stroll to Christchurch Casino is about more than winning money – although there’s plenty of opportunity to do that. Enjoy live events and shows, dine at the Grand Café or sample a cocktail in the Mashina Lounge. You can even partake in a slice of local history: this is the country’s first casino, opening its doors and unveiling a whopping 500 slot machines over two decades ago.
