We stayed at the Farmhouse for 1 night before heading out to Herm and then Sark for a week. The location is very convenient for the airport (we actually walked round with our bags, which was quite easy) although it's then around 20 minutes into St Peter Port by bus. The buses are a great way to get around though as any single journey only costs 60p, even right round the island!
We arrived at around 8.30am after an early morning flight from the UK and were expecting to just drop our bags, thinking our room wouldn't be available until later in the day. Not a bit of it! We were offered breakfast first of all (which actually didn't appear on our bill when we left!) and the room was ready for us by 9.30 - having been up since 4.30 that morning, this was most welcome and a wonderful surprise! The breakfast was also easily the best we had for our entire 8 day holiday.
We booked for a meal in the restaurant that evening and opted for their seafood special at £25 per person, including a glass of champagne, starter with prawns, crab and lobster, sea bass main and a choice of puddings. Pretty good value and a good standard. The only slight blemish was the service, which was a little lacking - we had to ask twice for both some bread with the starter and a jug of tap water. This however was the only blemish on our stay - the room was wonderful with a bath in the room as well as a separate en-suite shower room. It was all very comfortable with large plasma TV, very large bed, and newly refurbished en-suite with lovely tiles and fittings.
Overall we would heartily recommend this as a romantic and convenient place to stay in Guernsey. It's so easy to get around by bus on Guernsey that it doesn't matter that it's out of town and the country setting is actually a bonus.
