My partner and I stayed in the G hotel last week and had a very good stay there. Having come straight from another 5 star hotel though the differences between the two were striking. In advertising a hotel as 5 star it is the little extra touches one one expect. In the previous hotel there was a doorman who showed us to our room, luggage brought to room for us, executive putter in room, a phone call from reception to see if we needed anything, mr/Madame from staff, prosecco offered at breakfast!! There is a big difference between this and what the G offers! We would definitely say it is a good 4 star but much more personal touches needed for a 5 star rating and price. The cupcakes were a lovely touch though. Drinks were excellent particularly the cocktails - buy one get one free which is excellent value. We had lunch and a four course meal during our stay. Neither of us enjoyed the lunch - pulled chicken sandwiches. Dinner was a mixed bag - we both disliked the starter which was pulled chicken. It was nearly identical to lunch!! Next we had a pasta dish, pork and creme brûlée which were lovely. Dishes served quickly. Our hotel room had lovely decor and comfy bed. Some maintenance was needed on blown lightbulb, stains on carpet, loose tap. Also my night robe had a stain on it. We ordered room service for 9.30-10 slot and knock came to the door at 9.20. We would prefer it too early rather than cold but weren't dressed so had to answer in pjs which I wasn't happy with. Breakfast was nice. If this was a school report it would say - G is working well but needs to try harder.
