The George Review

Overlooking the Avon River and Hagley Park, this small luxury hotel has spacious, modern guest rooms. Its public areas are welcoming but intimate, with lovely details such as the magnificent brass handles on the entrance door and the verdigris brass banister. It's just a short walk from the museum, botanical gardens and a good number of bars, restaurants and the casino. The two on-site restaurants, Pescatore and 50 On Park, are also top-notch. Don't let the light switches get the better of you—just a single light tap is all it takes.
