Decided to go the G-Hotel after "roughing-it" in B&B's along the west coast of Ireland as a treat! I read some bad reviews on this so wasn't too sure what to expect when I walked in!
I must say that the receptionist was really lovely and chatty and down-to-earth. Breakfast staff the following morning were equally as nice!
I can see why some people may not like the decor of the hotel, but each to their own! I thought it was funky and really liked it. The really dark corridors contrast nicely with how white and bright the bed-rooms are! Each part of the hotel looks different to the other which I thought was kind of cool - quirky items everywhere which I like!
The room itself was spectacular and we were greeted with two lovely iced buns! Bathroom was lovely and the "do-not-disturb' button inside the door was something I hadn't seen before. The bed was unbelievable! In fact, I actually noted the make of the quilt and pillows so I can purchase my own - it was like sleeping in a marshmallow on a cloud!!!!
I can also see why people might not be crazy about the location, but if you look it up before you then you know it's not bang in the centre and it is in bit of an industrial estate, but it's a city hotel, which is what it's advertised as anyway.
Will definitely return!!
