“Very nice Hotel, rather noisy room. 3 night break:not sure if worth it!”
Reviewed 25 July 2011

We stayed at the Farmhouse July 18th-21st. We did the three night package and stayed in the third category room (one below a suite). We requested a quiet room as both my parents and my boyfriend and I had read reivews that it can be noisy above the bar etc. I am in my early twenties and assumed that other people that had commented about the noise were all old and miserable however I have to agree. The 3 night package includes car hire (except insurance & Fuel), Breakfast each morning, fruit basket in the room day 1 and half bottle of champagne.
The car insurance for the three days was approx £60-would be £90 without the hotel. We didnt need to buy any extra feul than what was provided as the island is small and half a tank lasts a long time.
The room itself was really nice, the staff are very pleasant, the food was average.
The only thing that really frustrated us was how very noisy the room was. Even after requested a quiet room months in advance, our room was positioned above the bar/kitchen and overlooking the carpark. Everyone in the hotel had to walk past our room to get to reception. There was a constant knocking sound throughout. We couldnt move rooms as the hotel was full. My advise with be to take your earplugs.

On that note we would stay here again, and our friends are in fact staying in three weeks time, in a different category room. Will take earplugs next time though.

Room Tip: Not the suite as we looked at one of these, the lower category are MUCH nicer and cheaper.

Our son had his wedding reception at the Farmhouse and they chose a four course meal for 94 people, which was served by friendly helpful staff, beautifully presented and delicious. The Hotel has lovely gardens and an outside pool. The bedrooms are all unique and very comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who knew what they were doing and were proactive in making sure the guests were all looked after. It was a lovely day and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel for functions, as we had previously been to others held at the Hotel and have never been able to find fault. well worth a visit for a weekend, week or longer......

A small and friendly hotel with ample parking and delightful gardens.
We had the 5 Night Special on B&B terms which included free car hire but we were able to extend the facility for the full 7 night stay. You pay for Insurance and local taxes.

Our Superior room was of a very high standard with plenty of space. Nice touches like a Port decanter (topped up daily!) and a basket of fruit and half bottle of champagne on arrival.

High standards in the a la carte restaurant but prices on the high side. Better value was choosing to eat in the Bar or Terrace from a still varied menu prepared in the same kitchen. Breakfasts taken in the restaurant were generous with wide choice of options.

Reception Manager very obliging and knowledgable. She booked ferry crossing to Sark and gave helpful advice for us to make the most of our stay on this very attractive island.

We thought the hotel offered good value for money with its Four Star rating.

We had a great stay at The Farmhouse from start to finish. The staff are very friendly and professional, the room we had was lovely, food was excellent - especially Breakfast where you can have Steak if you wish (it was excellent every time!)
I'm sure we'll go back and stay sometime in the future.....

We found this small hotel years ago before the renovations and have seen the changes as they have happened. Every year when we book we are concerned that maybe it is not as good as our memories and every year find it has improved.

Little thoughtful extra touches are regularly added. eg. this year the nightly turn down service with the home made fudge or chocolates,the jar of home made biscuits (which they re-filled quicker than we could empty) and the decanter of port. The staff are all very professional,attentive and friendly and seem happy in their work always ready with a smile.

Whilst I would not like to single anybody out I feel that not to mention Romano the restaurant manager and Donna the reception manager would be unfair. Their professionalism and attention to detail at all times ensured yet another wonderful stay. I would strongly recommend a stay at this hotel for anybody who likes a relaxing experience.

Have already booked next years holiday !!!

Prior to our arrival at The Farmhouse we had stayed in another of the island's well known 4-star hotels where staff were courteous, facilities excellent, and we enjoyed sea views and lovely gardens. No complaints there then, but it was a large hotel and didn't feel like great value. Then we went to The Farmhouse, similarly 4-star rated but with more of a boutique-style, and we fell in love...

What makes The Farmhouse better?

The service we received truly was some of the best we have ever experienced and it started from the moment we walked in. Actually, it was even earlier than that as when I telephoned Donna Rihoy (Reception Manager) to book the room she could not have been more helpful. The staff seem very happy in their work and take the time to talk to guests. The overall mood is one of quiet efficiency in relaxing surroundings.

Is it good value? Absolutely. For a similar nightly rate as elsewhere, you get so much more at The Farmhouse. A superior, beautifully furnished suite, luxury bathroom, champagne, fresh fruit, port decanter, freshly ground coffee and home made biscuits, complimentary car hire. Nice little touches are noticeable eg.providing a weekly TV guide opened at today's page (every day!), replenishing bath essentials, etc.

Don't let the close proximity to the airport put you off - we noticed little difference in aircraft noise between the hotels and The Farmhouse's central location makes a great starting point for exploring the island.

Full marks to a wonderful hotel and wonderful team! We hope to see you all again.

We’ve recently returned from a week’s holiday at the Farmhouse Hotel in Guernsey. Be under no doubt that this is a first class hotel with excellent accommodation, good facilities and polite efficient staff, especially the couple from the Breakfast:Mirabell and her fiance ,they are extremely friendly,helpful and did their best to make sure their guests were happy.Food was first class. Breakfast was buffet style and there was a good selection of fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurt, pastries and wonderful scrambled eggs and bacon. The well run restaurant had a great selection of excellent food .

We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and would like to take this opportunity to thanking the staff and management of the hotel in making our first stay in Guernsey so enjoyable.
