40th birthday surprise romantic weekend

Fantastic hotel in every way- Location perfect in the center of St Peter Port for exploring and accessing restaurants etc Excellent service from everyone Breakfast was wonderful- endless choices Room luxurious- beautiful bathroom Facilities top notch although we didn't use the Spa One very very minor issue- there was no way of plugging in the hairdryer and see into a mirror at the same time in our room. Would love to go back!

Wedding Anniversary

The hotel and its amenities were excellent and the breakfasts could not be surpassed. Additionally there were two excellent restaurants. The only disappointment was the size of the room. Our Queen room was a bit cramped, there was not enough room to fully open the wardrobe door, before it hit the bedside table.

Check out some of the excellent 3 course meal deals at local restaurants, La Perla is particularly good with a good choice, well cooked and reasonably priced wine. They do 3 menus,starting at £10.99.

Weekend break

Staff extremely good but hotel is back in the 80s! Décor very poor in fact windows were in a poor state of repair and pillows smelt stale! Would not return until they rejuvenate the interior, Moved on to La Fregate hotel in St Peter Port which, although 4 star, is excellent!!
