All staff met, weere friendly and engaging and the waits of food was quite simply outstanding. We have two dinners and breakfasts. The choice of evening meal...

Great to receive a call from reception asking if anything was ok and the Teddy Bear was a surprise and nice to take home to my wife! Staff were excellent and the food was awsome. The cost was outside of what I budgeted but the client booked the Hotel for the training so had no choice but the extra cost...

Lovely stay and great location - attention to detail a bit off, but issues we noted would be very easily remedied. Staff courteous, helpful and pleasant at all times. George the bear was a nice touch!

We arrived at the hotel after a longish drive and were well looked after on arrival. The hotel is reasonably central with a nice outlook over the park. The room was well appointed and comfortable. The bonus was eating in the Bistro - the food was delicious. However the waitress forgot our order of drinks!

Older hotel, great room although it was by stair well which was very noisy due to metal stairs. Friendly staff, great location, good conference facility. Dined at bistro for breakfast and dinner, good menu.

The George is in an ideal location - close to parklands and only a short walk to the city. Reception staff were friendly and efficient; rooms were clean and spacious and bathroom amenities and toiletries were great. Sadly, our experience for the 2 days we stayed here was marred by the wait staff at breakfast; both mornings our simple order...

Very good staff and extremely good atmosphere with unusual front desk being an immediate influence of being "at home". Excellent. The beds and rooms were also excellent The location and food and beverages were all very good.

Stayed 3 nights and really couldn't fault it. Staff are so attentive and friendly. It has the feel of a small boutique hotel but with all the amenities. Parking out the front walk to tram tour or restaurants (although we drove). Away from all the construction noise in the CBD We would easily stay here again.
