Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Third time staying here, simply the best on the island. Lovely boutique rooms with enormous bathrooms, super king beds, nice terraced gardens and excellent restaurant. Staff could not be more attentive and super friendly.

We had a two night stay at The Blonde Hedgehog and stayed in The Den. The hotel is beautiful. The room was stunning and equipped with everything needed. The staff were always very nice and friendly and the food at breakfast and dinner was great....It’s very rare that we would happily eat everything on the menu.More

We were a middle aged couple dealing with an elderly relative in “end of life care” situation on the Island looking for an emotional life when life was against us. Derek and the staff delivered beyond all our expectations and were simply exceptional. As someone...who has visited the Island for two decades this is the best place by a golden mile, every thing is perfect and when my wife and l were in the depths of despair the Blonde Hedgehog gave us exactly the lift we needed. We will be forever grateful, you chaps are simply the best.More

I was put in this hotel for a three day business trip to the Island, and it was an absolute delight. Two breakfasts and two dinners showed a wide range of culinary skills and, where possible, local produce. The room was finished to a very...high standard too, while keeping a homely feel. The thing that really made the stay was the kind and attentive staff - clearly enjoying what they do and looking out for the moment to do a little bit extra to make my stay special. I very much hope I return to this lovely Island, and to the Blonde Hedgehog.More

As a previous reviewer commented this place is faultless! Clearly a lot has been spent on the refurbishment and the food and service are to match. The Blonde Hedgehog compares favourably with both Rick Stein and The Pig on the Beach and must surely be...the best on Alderney. Thank you for a memorable experienceMore

The Blonde Hedgehog in Alderney is a superb boutique hotel with a wonderful restaurant managed by Alex and Sarin and a team of people who absolutely understand that success in the high end hospitality industry is all about satisfied customers. This is certainly the place...to stay and eat in Alderney. The accommodations are beautifully decorated and equipped to the finest detail. The gardens are landscaped and maintained to the same high standards. However, it is the restaurant that truly excels. Breakfasts set a standard that many other hotel breakfast chefs should aspire to emulate. Dinners then up the ante even more. Service is professional and unobtrusively managed by Alex with matching bar service provided by Sarin. Then there is the chef and kitchen crew who can justifiably be proud of the dishes that come to table. Yes, this is a glowing review. Other visitors must judge for themselves. For us, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Blonde Hedgehog and we are very pleased to highly recommend this hotel and restaurant.More
