As a regular visitor to the G Hotel I can recommend it's food and ambience. The rooms are tidy but are getting ready for a refurbishment. During the four years I've been visiting the G, the staff have always been superb. The hotel can be pricey at times - it depends how busy they are and who you speak to... More

Check is always quite slow, but they try to make it with you by serving ice cream. The rooms are up to date and I have... More
