We've started staying regularly in Guernsey for a work project and I've been lucky enough to have been booked in this hotel for the last three weeks. A little upset that they were already full for the coming week....! Anyway, the hotel sits perfectly on a west facing location, looking out over the beautiful coast. The sunsets have been amazing....

Had Quids in voucher and decided to treat my friend.....rather than her sleeping on my sofa! Could not fault the experience. Prompt friendly booking and check in. Studio room was a fantastic surprise. Spacious and immaculate. Champagne afternoon tea was excellent. I made the wrong meal choices at dinner....entirely my fault. My friend loved her meal though and the staff...

First time visiting the Island, and my company booked me in here for 1 night ... wasn't sure what to expect. Check-in was quick and easy. Asked if wanted to book a table for dinner and I declined, but later I decided I would eat in the restaurant. Room very large and clean, although being on ground floor, overlooked the...

I stayed here recently to attend a wedding of which the reception was being held at the hotel. The staff were brilliant. Extremely friendly and attentive. My room was stunning. Pristinely clean and fabulous patio to sit outside and enjoy the sun. The food was also outstanding - great breakfast and early bird menus. Highly recommended - 5 stars

Excellent food and service. It is also in a very good area on the coastline. Takes about a majority of 140 people for the restaurant. It is great for company or charity functions. There is also very good rooms available if people wish to stay the night.

A lovely relaxing lunch in lovely surroundings. All served by the smiling and friendly waiters and waitress. Each course was beautifully presented and tasty. We were quite a large group but nobody had to wait too long for their food and plates were cleared away promptly. I will certainly return.

The lunchtime menu in the Brasserie is always excellent value for money. The staff are so professional and friendly. The waitress, knowing my mother was partially sighted, suggested that she might want chips on a plate rather than in a basket, and she might prefer garden peas to mushy peas. If only all restaurants in Guernsey were like this.
