I spent 2 nights at Le Friquet and it was, quite simply, one of the best hotel experiences that I've had in 20 years. From the second I walked in I was made to feel welcome by the very friendly receptionists, who gave me a brief tour of the facilities before showing me to my room, which was clean, well...

From the moment you step through the door you're greeted with smiles, friendship and warmth. They all seem to genuinely care about your stay. The place itself is spotless, with a great restaurant and a nice outside seating area in the garden - ideal to relax with a drink from the bar. Maybe the location is a little isolated as...

My view is that good 4* hotels are always better than 5* where it's merely a question of box ticking over quality of service. On the service front Le Friquet is a positive delight, they seem to function with few staff but somehow they are always there when you want them? The hotel looks as though its just had a...

Dear ColinInHants True we are lucky to have a couple of locally made Gin's on the island one with a healthy taste of Juniper and the other with Rock Samphire hand picked from the Guernsey cliffs with a touch of Grapefruit. They certainly make a nice aperitif before dinner or to sip on our patio when returning from a day...
