The George Named in Top Ten Readers Choice Awards

The George, one of New Zealand’s most treasured boutique hotels and the only hotel in Christchurch with a one to one staff to guest ratio has been named in the top ten hotels in Australia and New Zealand by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler magazine. The George is the only New Zealand hotel named in the top ten.

The award announced today acknowledges the constant dedication to the guest experience, delivering authentic personalised service that is professional without being ‘familiar’.

“This award recognizes our focus on delivering exceptional service in a comfortable, sophisticated and elegant luxury hotel,” explains Bruce Garrett, Managing Director of Brook Serene. Brook Serene is the discerning curator of The George, one of four boutique hotels in New Zealand.

The George is located in the heart of Christchurch where you will find a high level of superior service and luxurious accommodation overlooking the River Avon in Hagley Park. With two award winning restaurants, you will enjoy personalised experiences in comfort.
