Six of us have just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel where we also had the Gala Dinner on New Years Eve (excellent). From arriving on the Friday evening to leaving late afternoon on New Years day, every single staff member could not do enough for us. The public areas of the hotel are beautifully decorated and you feel so welcomed and comfortable. Our bedroom allocated room 501 was a corner attic room and exceptionally noisy with the weather, but had lots of facilities included ie slippers, robes, hospitality tray including biscuits. I phoned ahead to enquire about a minibus at the airport and this was instantly arranged by Alisha at the hotel which was conveniently added to our room charges. We were looked after on our arrival by Orlando in the bar who organized delicious food for us even though it was about 9.45pm and this was all on a room credit of £50 supplied by the hotel as part of a stay for 3 nights pay for two. The breakfast at the hotel was fantastic, so much choice and cooked to order, not stood congealing like a lot of other hotels offer. Again the staff were fabulous. The hotel should be so proud of the service and attention to detail their staff provide. Even the General Manager Norburt Stump makes a point of speaking to the majority of people that visit the hotel. The team care about the customers and are very personable and friendly. The whole experience make me want to revisit in the summer with my family. It was handily located within a 10 min walk of the port.
We went here for our annual Christmas staff meal. The staff were very attentive, the room was attractively laid out. The food was excellent , delicious and beautifully presented. The best Christmas meal out for so many people.
This hotel was recommended to me by a friend in Jersey and it didn’t disappoint. The staff were amazing. Helpful, friendly and clearly take pride in their work. The colour scheme in my room was a bit dark for my liking and one or two minor details could have been updated but the room was well proportioned and in my case had a view over the park. I very rarely stay in and eat at hotels but in this case I did and was pleasantly surprised both by the quality of the food and the reasonable prices. Service in the restaurant was exceptional led by Orlando. Overall a great stay. I tried to upload a panoramic shot of the room and failed so here is an edited shot of the best Christmas pudding I have ever had which I enjoyed at the hotel.
For anyone looking for a warm welcome when in Guernsey, make sure you visit and stay at The Duke of Richmond hotel. Norbert and his team go above and beyond to ensure his guests and visitors are happy. Everyone on Reception are friendly and helpful. Dianna, Aaron, David are just a few of the friendly faces who have made us feel like we are at a home away from home. Olga always ensures a pleasurable meal is enjoyed in the restaurant. Her attention to detail is exceptional. As we are both Vegetarian she went out of her way to ensure the chefs put on a variety of Specials so we had something different to choose from (we stay frequently and have worked our way through the menu Vegetarian options). I opted for a tasty Spinach tortellini and my Partner enjoyed the Halloumi Burger and fries. The chef on duty was Alan and he definitely loves to cook! Our meals were perfect and very tasty. The hotel is dog friendly, as they are part of the Red Carnation Hotel Group. We are always blown away by how much they love our Boston Terrier, Sidney and he is always treated like a VIP. So, when I say everyone can expect a warm welcome... I do mean everyone! Thank you all for another brilliant stay.
We have just stayed at the DoR for the 4th time and we have always felt welcome, at home and comfortable. We have stayed in a variety of bedrooms, from a classic double to a suite with balcony and each time it has been special. A ten out of ten for everyone who works at the DoR but a very special mention must go to Olga who manages the restaurant - she is always helpful, attentive and welcoming. The DoR is our first port of call, whenever we visit this lovely Channel Island.
The hotel is nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. The staff are lovely and really helpful. We ate in the restaurant and the food was great. The only downside was that the bedroom was really, really cold at night.
WOW from the moment you walk through the door the service is first class, every detail checked..... Nothing too much trouble......The food was amazing, breakfast was fantastic a pleasure to sit in the dinning area. The decor was great big clean comfy beds slept so well i near never made it to breakfast Will return without question
Recently visited this fun and well presented hotel with it's eclectic mix of decor. First impressions on entering the hotel are dominated by the checker board flooring, accompanied by the sparkle of glass and silverware leading up to a central reception desk where a warm welcome awaited us. Our travel arrangements had already created a challenging start to our time in Guernsey as we had been due to start our stay in Sark but due to poor weather had to swap the first part of our holiday around. The hotel were able to deal with this in a flexible and efficient manner, accommodating the varying requirements of all 9 of us! Following check in we located our well appointed 3rd floor room, which was a very good size, decorated with opulent blue striped walls, a large, very comfortable bed, seating area and good sized bathroom. All clean and tidy with the addition of tea and coffee making facilities. Prior to arrival we had requested an iron and ironing board along with feather pillows and this had not been overlooked. The dining experience at the hotel is also to be commended and we enjoyed the safari chic themed Leopard Bar as our pre meal meeting place. Again the staff were friendly and obliging, offering suggestions of the wines and beers that might tempt us! In the comfortable and spacious restaurant we took advantage of the tennerfest menu on offer and were not disappointed with the quality of the food provided. The same can be said for the variety of options available for breakfast which has something to suit most tastes, no excuses for feeling hungry here! In summary, I can thoroughly recommend this hotel which is close to the centre of St Peter's Port yet in a quiet and attractive area and would happily visit it again.
We were visiting Guernsey for the first time, and were here for 4 days, during this time I was celebrating my birthday!! I have high expectations for hotels I stay in and am occasionally disappointed. The Duke of Richmond however, didn't disappoint, it exceeded my expectations, hugely!! The superior room we stayed in was large, bright and roomy adorned with a cute chandelier above the bed. Super clean room with lovely little extras. The hotel itself is SO elegant with a really stunning reception. The main reason this hotel is EXCEPTIONAL is the staff. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble, they were ALL bright friendly and cheerful ( we were there for 4 days and it never changed). They found out it was my birthday and so when we returned to our beautiful room, after cycling round the island all day, a beautiful little cake decorated with fruit and happy birthday written in chocolate was sitting on the table and an even sweeter touch was a birthday card signed by every member of the concierge/ reception team!! It was full of signatures. We ate in their restaurant twice and again, the blond maitre d was utterly charming and professional every time!! Gorgeous Irish waiter who served us, was a delight!! Thank you The Duke of Richmond and your AMAZING staff. Due to how you treated us, we will MOST definitely return and would recommend this hotel to the most discerning of travellers. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!!!!
This hotel and it's staff are just great. The food is of high quality. Rooms are beautifully presented. The walk to town is a pleasure but hard work coming back unless an experienced walker. Thank you to the General Manager and his team for a lovely stay. Special mention to Paul from the bar for his cocktails the wife enjoyed them.
