This is by far the best hotel in the area, when you consider the price. The rooms are spotless and the staff are really friendly and helpful. Everything about this hotel is quirky, each room is different and individual, obviously a lot of care and attention went into the interior design.
The breakfast is cooked to order, so no dry scrambled eggs and warm bacon.
I would definitely stay again, I want to sleep in every room!!!
I can see this little gem being a big hit in the future.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely , no matter which one you stay in, you won't be disappointed

What a find this lovely little place is!! And such a breath of fresh air compare to so many small hotels, with their faded nylon bedspreads and tragic phials of cheap shower gel. The G in G hotel makes its presence felt everywhere - each room is named (we were in G for Gleeful, a riot of turquoise, our grown up kids in Glittering and Graceful - which both lived up to their names) and the furnishing and ambience throughout is just gorgeous. I actually considered stealing one of the purple studded chesterfields; it was only the heavy rain that stopped me in my tracks.....

But best of all, this place is the antithesis of style over substance. As well as the visual treat, this hotel gave us everything you'd want from a hotel but sometimes dont get - superb, friendly service, decent pillows, a great range of tea bags, nice-smelling shower gel (I know - but little things and all that....) and, best of all, the most delightful and tasty breakfast, all cooked to order by a cracking chef.

I can't imagine staying anywhere else now, whenever we need to be in Portsmouth. Just delightful. Keep up the good work!

I made a booking for my partners birthday and had the Giddy room. It had a huge round bed and a double sunken jacuzzi which was just out of this world.
Nice early check in times and late check out.
The staff are amazing, so willing to be of any assistance and attending any need.
Breakfast was freshly cooked to order, brilliant no frisby eggs and dried out bacon. Well worth the wait.
The leaving gift was such a special touch.
Bravo G! Boutique
Long may you be in business

Stayed here recently. Nice welcome from the receptionist who showed us to our ground floor room, which was a good size. A nice touch was the two small cakes left as a token welcome gift. Good quality toiletries were supplied in the en suite bathroom. The bed was comfortable although the mattress was 6" narrower than the bed frame, so sitting on the bed side was uncomfortable. Only one pillow each was supplied but we did find an extra two in the bottom of the wardrobe. I assume that the drunken woman who was screaming and shouting in the bar until past midnight and keeping me awake was an exception rather than the rule...

Breakfast was good although the decor is a matter of taste and is shared with the bar. Perhaps that's what sent the aforementioned woman crazy.

Staff were excellent throughout. A couple of (I hope) helpful suggestions - put a couple of chairs in the ample bedroom and some tisues on the dressing table.

Overall, a pleasant place for an short stay and I would certainly be happy to stay here again..

We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and would be happy to stay here again. We are also very pleased you were well looked after by the staff.

We appreciate all suggestions as to how we can improve our business and always take action on them where possible.
I apologise for the noise disturbance from the bar area, again this is something we will look into for you and I can assure you this is a very unusual occurrence.

We take great pride in our decor at G! Boutique and enjoy being a little different from the norm. We provide a lot of pictures on our website and suggest to guests to who have a look at this prior to booking to ensure the hotel is to their taste. As you can see from all of the previous comments this is usually something that is appreciated by guests.

Stumbled across this hotel online and having read prior reviews we were keen to check it out on a New Year's Eve trip to Portsmouth. I cannot fault this place in any way. From the great service when booking over the phone allowing me to pick which room we wanted right through to breakfast and checkout everything was fantastic.

Our room 'Gleeful' was a great size, super quiet, light and airy. What you don't get in many hotels is a great room layout - nowhere to put your makeup on or if there is it's not light enough. This was a really well thought out room.

We have stayed at many hotels in the area and this one far exceeds all the others. If you want a touch of luxury combined with exceptional service this is the place for you. We have already recommended it to friends and are planning a trip back later in the year.

Thanks for a great stay!

I took my partner here as a surprise xmas pressie. I wanted a hotel which was not part of a chain and was extra special. G! Boutique totally hit the spot. The staff were fantastic, even recommending a romantic restaurant for our evening meal, booking the table for us and the taxi. The room was comfortable and classy. The breakfast in the morning was more than adequate even for the healthiest of appetities. Will definately stay here again if ever in the area.

Room Tip: All the rooms are individually designed and themed.
