“Good Budget Hotel”
Reviewed 30 May 2012

Spent 3 nights here and it was a ok budget hotel. Staff were friendly and professional. Large, clean inground pool outside and nice garden area. Breakfast was good, nothing great but good way to start the day. Room was a bit dated but good to sleep in. Only complaint was it was a bit warm and we booked 2 rooms but were given 1 with 3 beds as they were overbooked. One complaint was it seemed there were lots of long term guests there (construction workers, etc) and they were always at the bar at night being rude and noisey. We didn't want to sit inside due to this so we sat outdoors. They came out and urinated all over the patio/gardens numerous times. Wouldnt stay here again but ok for 3 nights. Only other complaint is 20 min walk out of town or 6 pound cab ride.

Dunchoille, Owner at Dunchoille, responded to this review, 20 June 2012
These guest had originally booked a triple room for their stay, but were given a special rate.

We do not have "lots" of long term guest, and the few we have are not in the construction industry. We do have some short term construction workers stay with us, although they may be slightly noisy are not rude.

With regards to the urinating, if true, why was this not raised with receiption there and then, or at the latest the next morning?? But on questioning the residents that were present during this stay they denied doing this, and we would point out that there are toilets by the pool, in reception and in their rooms, so they had no need to do this.

The cost of taxis is out of our control, also there is a bus route that runs hourly from town past the hotel until 20:55 and this costs only £1.00.

May 5th 2012 and have just spent a week at the Dunchoille. After reading some of the very old reviews ( around 2005 - which really should be taken off here as no longer applyng at all) I was very pleasantly surprised to find a lovely hotel with the staff incredibly obliging. The place was immaculately clean and the food was to die for - lovingly cooked with fresh Guernsey produce in the full English breakfast. My room had everything I wanted, including TV, tea and coffee tray, phone and what looked like a spanking new shower room. Free wi-fi available too, and use of the computer terminal. My quiet room overlooked the garden with lawn and arum lilies blooming, which opens off the bar/lounge. I look forward to returning on my next trip to Guernsey.

Room Tip: Tell Mark, the manager, what your priorities are and he will be happy to choose the best fit for yo...

This hotel is as dated as its website photo's.
Nice lick of paint on the outside very poor on the inside.
The rooms are very cramped. Most twins should be singles and don’t even bother with the triple’s. If you think a shower is standard these days? Think again! Bath’s in most rooms. The rooms are very dated and so is the rest of the décor. The bar and breakfast staff are friendly. A law to themselves whether the bar is open. Don’t be fooled with this one, give it a miss!!
