“Grinning from ear to ear!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

As the title suggests I certainly was. Lovely girl on reception when we arrived who explained every thing to us and was really smily and friendly she even told me where to find the button for the TV which was in the end of my bed! Lovely decor and spotlessly clean my only comment would be that the bathroom was a little small BUT it was perfectly useable and clean/modern, I understand the property is a converted Victorian house and so it's all part of the charm. Loved the cupcake in my room nice touch! And breakfast was lovely too, really tasty and a great selection, the team will do pretty much anything you ask for so that's nice and without making you feel like a nuisance. Oh and when I left I got a bag with a bottle of water and a cereal bar for my onward journey which was a nice touch! Overall I loved my stay which was for work, but I have already booked another stay for pleasure! I can't wait to take my girlfriend.

Stayed for one night in the glamorous room and staying there was a lovely experience all round. The décor is quirky and stylish, the staff were lovely and very helpful and we had a great night sleep because the bed was extremely comfortable. We had no problem with noise, the shower was powerful and the products smelt nice. We parked on the road outside which was fine. The location was ideal, five minutes from South sea prom and beach. Breakfast was tasty and we loved the complementary cupcakes in the room! Will definitely go back soon!

We just spent a night at the G! Boutique and I felt inclined to set up an account on TripAdvisor just so I could lend my voice to the cacophony of people who are saying just how good this place is.

We're expecting our first child in a couple of weeks and so wanted to go for one last night away before everything changes forever! As soon as I saw the reviews and the photos of G! Boutique on TA, I knew this was the place for us. An explosion of quirky luxury crafted with an eye for an astonishing level of detail, it was obvious the love that had gone into creating something a bit (or rather a lot) different for those of us who see chain hotels as functional rather than desirable. I immediately booked one of their three luxury rooms (got a great deal on a Sunday night) and we were lucky enough to be put in Glad To Be Here, a beautifully appointed room with a comfy, ornate four poster bed, and a stunning bathroom with a freestanding bath and a double shower. I didn't tell my better half where we were going because I didn't want her to look up pictures of it before we got there and the effect was apparent: she teared up (tears of joy I might add!) as soon as she saw the room.

You can see pictures of all the rooms on their website and each one is striking and individual in its own right. If you go to the hotel's Facebook page, there is an album that shows what the property looked like before it was transformed into what it is today. The amount of vision that the owners must have had and indeed needed to create the G! Boutique defies belief.

On top of all this there are the touches that many others have mentioned in reviews before me: the welcoming cupcakes when you get to your room, the snack bag for your journey home, the tasty and generous breakfast. But despite all of this, one of its main assets has to be the staff. We chatted to the owners as well as the girl who was working in the restaurant in the morning and the breakfast chef extraordinaire (who was later manning reception as we checked out). Every single one of them was a credit to the establishment.

I've been lucky enough to stay in some nice hotels over the years, but none as friendly, photogenic, and stunning as this. This is definitely our kind of place. We managed to sneak a look into the room next to ours as the door was open when we went down for breakfast (the occupants had obviously checked out earlier). This was Gloating You're Not Here, which features a round bed so big that the pictures don't do it justice, and a magnificent raised double jacuzzi in the bathroom. Once our kiddy is old enough to be left with grandparents for the night, we will be back to stay in this room!

A massive thank you to everybody at the G! Boutique who helped to make our last night away before parenthood takes over our lives a memory we will hold onto forever. Here's to somewhere that dares to be different!

Room Tip: Check Sunday night rates for good deals - the weekend we went the luxury rooms were not that much mo...

We have just returned home from a nights stay in G Boutique, we originally saw them on four in a bed and loved the look of it.
I booked it as a surprise for my husbands 40th.
I'm not sure where to start but it is absolutely fantastic, from the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and more like friends than just guests.
Our room was great and all the little touches make it even more special. The birthday ballon and banners was a nice surprise for my husband. The chocolates and cupcakes are a great touch.(and birthday card to).
The decoration all around the hotel is fab. Love the lounge, the coffee and cake is a nice extra.
We have to say thank you to Will, he made us feel at home and his cocktails are good too. Breakfast was lovely lots of choice and cooked well.
Thank you once again to everyone at G Boutique for making our stay so special, will definatley be back would stay tonight if we could.
You really should stay here you won't be dissapointed.

We were given this night away by family to celebrate our 25 th wedding anniversary, we had watched four in a bed and was delighted that by chance we had been booked into G Boutique. From start to finish we were overwhelmed, we stayed in 'glad to be here' and we certainly were. The room was spotless and oh so beautiful and the bathroom out of this world. The staff couldn't be any more helpful and the wine, cakes, chocolate and card were so thoughtful. We opted for breakfast in bed and thoroughly enjoyed it, the going home bag was another lovely touch. Can't find a bad word to say and would love to go back.

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.
