We only stayed one night at G! but the time spent there was very good. The overall atmosphere was very relaxed and welcoming. We arrived about 9 pm and ordered a drink from the bar and took it into the lounge with its 'hanging' see-through chairs. There was a large cake, toffee apples, coffee and bars of chocolate - to which you could help yourself. There's lots of quirky furniture, black carpet, bright purple and white décor. Each room is decorated in a unique and different style, with rooms having names beginning with G rather than numbers. Rooms were comfortable and clean - only criticism of our room would be to have done away with the bath and just had a shower cubicle as it meant the toilet was a very tight fit - but that's all we could fault really.
The breakfast room was bright and cheerful and the food was fresh, cooked well, and the service was friendly and attentive without being overbearing.
When we left, we were given a bag with water and cereal bars to take with us on our journey - nice touch.
The situation of G! is great too as it's just round the corner from the seafront and a lovely park with a play area and fitness trail for children. Lovely for early morning walks along the beach. Easy parking too. Also very convenient for getting to Portsmouth's Historic Dockyard and other tourist attractions.
We would definitely return.
