G! Boutique Hotel
Ranked #2 of 35 Portsmouth B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Came here to visit theMary Rose museum et al.Bus at £4.40 for 2 10 minute journey stops outside and it may be worth your time investigating aPortsmouth card to defray the cost of this as parking near the GunWharf is also expensive.A taxi from ferry terminal only cost £8!
That said, the hotel was great.Breakfast excellent with great choices,real orange juice,fresh fruit salad and lots of options.staff helpful and friendly at all times.Room quiet and large with good bed and facilities.Decor is quirky and all is clean unlike many English places we have stayed in the past.We were very happy with our 2 night stay and advice about local tapas restaurant was spot on.We ate there twice(Nicholsons).hotel also convenient to walk along the promenade and around the lake.It was25 degrees so this was a great thing to do.We had brought the Australian weather with us!

Room Tip: Gorgeous is downstairs and quiet.

We stayed at this hotel in the Gorgeous room on a Friday night - as a group of six on our way to the Isle of Wight. I loved the personality of each room, and the cupcake was a nice little treat. Staff were so attentive, and very polite and very accomodating. They were even very kind when we got a bit loud late into the evening while catching up over some beers in the front room (sorry about that!!). The location was perfect for the beach and some nice dining options even though it's a bit aways from the Harbour, the recommendations for dinner were spot on and I enjoyed the breakfast immensely. May I also add the soft beds were a very nice treat and were missed in our lackluster Isle of Wight accomodation for the rest of the weekend. Great hotel - would be happy to return here again and again.

Stayed here in Gosh room.
Having read the reviews I was disappointed on several levels,
It would appear that unless you have the suite the other rooms are average and unfortunatly it was grubby in the corners around windows.
We stayed here as a change to a premier inn as cost wise it was similar. No atmosphere at all in the bar even though the hotel (actually its a B&B) was full. Perhaps I was expecting more from the reviews that I read (albeit not on Trip Advisor)
They state they use 'premium' sausages in the full English. Sorry there's no way they were.
There's only parking for 4 cars on site but there is unrestricted parking all around.
Quite noisy so couldn't sleep with window open.
I would have been bitterly disappointed had I paid full price.
Would I stay again probably not as the Permier Inn by the M27 is just as good.

Dear Tony and Faye,

Thank you for your comments. I am very saddened to hear you did not enjoy your G! Boutique experience. We take all comments on board and strive to improve from your criticisms.

We do understand the hotel is not for everyone and from reading your comments feel you would be more suited to a premier inn establishment.

We would urge you in future if you are unhappy with a stay to let the hotel know at the time in order to give them an opportunity to put things right for you. We have seen this same review from you on other online review sites and feel saddened that the only people you haven't told about your experience are the people that could do something about it - us!

As a small business, comments like these really do affect us and the staff who work so hard here every day. It's both frustrating and upsetting when the first we hear of it is on the internet without any opportunity for us to do anything about it, especially when your detrimental comments are on multiple sites. We take all problems very seriously and had we known, would have done whatever we could to rectify the situation.

We would like to point out that, if you look at all of the other reviews on here, you do not need to stay in a suite to enjoy your stay (see the review below written the day before this one - they actually stayed in the same room as you!).

My husband booked this beautiful hotel as an anniversary treat after I had been so impressed when they had been featured on the tv programme 'four in a bed'. No wonder they won.
We were in room G for Gosh, which was gorgeous. The staff were friendly, the hotel was clean, and the food fantastic. Lots of little extras made the stay extra special: wine, chocolates and cup cakes in the room along with a card for our anniversary and a goodie bag of water and cereal bars for the journey home (which took about 15 minutes as we live in the city!!)
Well worth a visit.

We stayed in the Glittering room for four nights in May. The room was very very purple :-) but really nice and the small bathroom had a bathtub. Good breakfast with a lot of choice. The situation of the Hotel is fantastic, it takes only a five minute walk to the beach. We enjoyed our staying there and had a great time in Portsmouth.

We decided on G! after reading the reviews on TA.

Even though we knew what to expect from the reviews and photos on TA, the avant-garde decor including the suspended ceiling chairs in the lounge still surprised us - we were told they could support up to 38 stone! (they could certainly support our weight).

Our room - 'Graceful' - was clean and cosy. The decor was light and cheerful, and the bathroom was clean.

Breakfast variety was good. Portions were sufficient and tasty, and staff were friendly and helpful. We loved the mini-croissants.

G!'s location is convenient if you enjoy relaxing walks by the sea. During our 3 day stay, we walked along the esplanade everyday, even to the Gunwharf Quays (about 45mins stroll), passing many interesting sights and monuments along the way. On our second day, we had an absolutely wonderful day out on the Isle of Wight via a fabulous 10min hovercraft ride (the hovercraft pier is a 25min stroll from G!).

Thanks Eli for a great stay! The little thoughtful touches everywhere were really appreciated (the final surprise was v nice, which we noticed matched your purple colour theme).

Room Tip: We opted for 'Graceful' but you can't go wrong with any of them.
