We booked Sunday night accommodation. We were given an Immaculate twin bedded room with balcony, sea view and excellent, spotless bathroom, carvery lunch and breakfast for two - all for £79. Unbelievably good value. All the staff encountered at reception, restaurant and housekeeping were extremely pleasant and helpful. Would thoroughly recommend.

This is our 4th visit and each time we feel we want to stay longer. The 'View' from our room was wonderful and loved having a large balcony. The hotel is in an ideal position close to restaurants and shops but away from the busy end of the seafront. Breakfast was a bit hectic on the Sunday and was kept...

This was a very last minute booking after our arranged weekend break to Guernsey had to be aborted owing to flight cancellations. We could not have made a better choice. The addition of a balcony was amazing as the view out to sea was excellent.
