We stayed at the G for 2 nights for my birthday and it was just fabulous. You have to like and appreciate design to get it, I guess, but it was in my view just brilliant.
Our room was great - roomy with the most comfy bed I have ever experienced. Toiletries and bathroom also as fab as expected.
We didn't eat in the restaurant (mainly because the concierge had such good suggestions for places to eat in town) but the breakfast was tasty (if a little slow to arrive).
The location is fine - out of town but easy to get to in a cab - and overlooking a lake.
The cocktails and ambience in the bar were just brilliant - really lives up to the photos on The G website.
My only gripe is that we arrived at 2.30pm and had to wait over an hour for our room. We were asked to wait in the bar for "a few minutes" on arrival - if we had known it would take so long we might have gone out. Instead, we decided to have a cocktail or three in the pink bar. I think in hindsight it was pretty poor of the hotel not to pick up the tab for those drinks, given that the delay was entirely their fault. However, after a few kir royales, we didn't really think about it and paid for them ourselves.
Apart from that episode - which I guess if we had asked the hotel, might have been remedied - we had a wonderful time and would recommend to anyone. Even if you are staying elsewhere you must go to the G for a cocktail at least, just to see it.
