I stayed in the G Hotel for one night as I was travelling to Galway anyway and had heard wonderful things about the G. Initial impressions (aesthetically anyway) weren't wonderful as it is on a main road and so I agree that the other reviewers' were right - the location could be better and the exterior of the hotel is not that inspiring. However, from the moment your car is valet parked and you enter the G, you are very pleasantly surprised. Staff are super friendly and we checked in swiftly and without issue.
Although we booked a standard room, it was absolutely beautiful. I can't imagine what the suites must be like. Everywhere you look, you see Philip Treacy's hand - the glorious detail in lighting, mirrors, furniture - even the door handles! The hotel screams quality.
We tried to book dinner that night for 8pm and though initially it wasn't possible, the maitre'd went out of his way to get us a table for the time we wanted. The food was a little pricey but was delicious. In the lounge we had to wait a little while for drinks though I think that was down to the staff being new.
Next morning, the breakfast (included) was the best I've ever had - locally produced and 'full irish' of course.
I'm dying to go back and would highly recommend it. Excellent.
