My wife and I visited here late October to celebrate an anniversary. We were looking forward to our stay here and I'm delighted to report that we were not disappointed. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and offered a glass of sparkling wine during our check-in process. This was indicative of the level of attentiveness and friendliness that all the...

There is a real sense of history here, you can imagine the German officers being billeted here. The decor is very sumptuous, I really liked the padded wallpaper with borders on each panel, I appreciate craftsmanship. 5 star hotels can seem impersonal and corporate but that is not the case here, the staff were friendly and welcoming. We took advantage...

The service of the staff and the quality of food was very good though and...

I cannot speak highly enough of this hotel & staff. We visited Guernsey for the weekend with our children (4&5) and from the moment we checked in we were looked after so well. The children had their own small dressing gowns in the room and their own Oggie Bear on their beds. The evening turndown was a complete treat which...

The hotel building is rather dated, but that only adds to it's charm. We stayed in room 108, with large bay windows, from which we could see all of the other channel islands and harbour, quite a view to wake up to! The room was nicely decorated and clean, with plenty of literature regarding Guernsey and tourist attractions. Everything required...
