“G is for Great!”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

What can I say. This place exceeded all my expectations.

We were met with a friendly welcome and our first impressions were 'this place is awesome'! Great room with a double shower and huge slipper bath. There were also two delicious cupcakes left out for us too, along with a written personal welcome from the owners and their team. Things just continued to get better as we explored, they had a lovely lounge with coffee and cakes on tap, huge amounts of useful local knowledge available, funky decor, free wifi throughout the hotel and a cool basement bar. Breakfast after the night before was also amazing. Great quality food, huge choice and more friendly staff. It was also lovely to meet the owners as they seemed to help out around the place alongside their team instead of locking themselves away and leaving them too it.

As if all this wasn't enough when it came to checking out we were presented with a leaving gift. What a nice surprise!

Overall would have no hesitation in recommending the G! Boutique Hotel to others and can't wait to return and try out some of the other quirky, cool rooms.

Thanks Guys :0)

We are so pleased to hear that your stay exceeded expectations!

It is also great to hear you enjoyed all the little touches that we put in place and that you enjoyed the food. As you can probably tell from the various cakes etc food is a very important factor here and we are pleased it is well received.

I have passed your comments on to the staff who are equally pleased - many thanks!

Was welcomed by a lovely member of staff who checked us in with great ease. We were shown to our room (glad to be here) and informed of all we needed to know.
Upon our arrival in our rooms were cupcakes and a welcome letter with our names on which we found to be a very cool personal touch. The room did not disappoint, however we did have a small issue with one of the showers which was fixed very quickly without disturbing any of our stay.
The breakfast had a good choice for everyone and service was quick and efficient.
On our second night we went to the bar for a drink and was served by Jason who was friendly and entertaining.
Overall we would recommend this hotel to others and think Eli and the team have created a very lovely relaxing hotel to stay at in a great location. We cant wait to return and try out the other rooms.

No wonder this place is so highly rated, it's fabulous, every little detail considered, quirky but elegant and a must to try.

We will return several times I'm sure, purely to experience an excellent establishment.

We had a fantastic time, great quality room, service and food.
Although we don't live too far away it was a nice opportunity to spend some time in the city and enjoy the amenities it has to offer. A lovely location that enabled us to check out the local bars and restaurants. An excellent WIFI service available throughout the hotel which meant we could carry out some of our day to day work during our stay.
Will definitely be back when our batteries need recharging again. Next time we're going to go for the breakfast in bed option which is offered at no extra cost :-)

From the moment I arrived I was treated like a family friend, the staff did everything possible to ensure my short visit was perfect, My Ferry from Portsmouth to Guernsey on Valentines Day was cancelled due to the very stormy weather and high winds and at very short notice I was able to book another nights stay in the G for Gushing room, Everyone I came in contact with were so friendly and pleasant, I wish my trip home had been delayed even longer.

We stayed at the G boutique hotel for 3 days and the hospitality was exceptional. The rooms were amazing and the stay was recalling comfortable. The staff are really welcoming and homely. I asked for a few personal touches and they carried these out without questioning to the highest standards. We have stayed at a few hotels and boutiques in Portsmouth but this is by far the best we have ever been to. Would recommend this to anyone visiting Portsmouth.

Went here last night. The hotel is really nice etc and comes with a lovely breakfast which was brought to us in bed. The rooms are nicely presented and finished to a good standard. Above all though the receptionist is really nice and will do anything for you.
