“Good food but lacks atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

The first impression you get as you enter the hotel is brown everywhere. The bedroom doors are painted a dark purple with brown surrounds which makes the whole place seem rather dark, however in the evening you get the opposite effect as there are far too many lights on in the lounge area and it is very bright in the dining room. The bedroom was fine except for the fabric shower curtain which sticks to you when wet , the tiny cardboard like towels and the hairdryer which has hardly any power - take your own if you want to blow dry your hair! On a positive note the food both for breakfast and dinner was very good with plenty of choice and we got good service from the staff. It was good value for what we paid which included a hire car.

Attended a RAFA European Area Conference at this venue over the last weekend.
Found the venue very dated, similar to a mid 1960's 'hi de hi' set.
The furnishings and the bedrooms are extremely tired and in desperate need of major refurbishment.
All the 'Non-English' staff (think all of them!) were efficient, helpful and very friendly.
As for Conference facilities:
at the first coffee break the delegates gathered at a table only to find an urn of hot water and a large can of Nescafe instant coffee, a small concrete stone about the size of a 10p piece which we were informed was a biscuit! none were consumed - all were left on the table with pieces of delegate's teeth and fillings!

Room Tip: Why not try a different hotel first, compare prices and then come back to this one. It is on the bu...

Great hotel in peaceful location. Excellent service and food, especially the fantastic Sunday lunch. Would recommend this to anyone. Excellent heated outdoor swimming pool and still in use 1st week of October. Great hotel for long or short breaks always offering deals on breaks

This was our second visit to this hotel. The staff make it very relaxing and are always pleasant and helpful. The rooms are clean and the food excellent. The local beaches are wonderful. Would highly recommend this hotel for a stay on Guernsey.

Stayed at this hotel as part of a Channel island holiday. The hotel is situated across the road from the bay. It is in a lovely quiet location. The rooms are a nice size but a little on the tired side. The staff are very welcoming and attentive. The food served at the breakfast is good and dinner at the hotel is very good. My wife and I really enjoyed our break here.

Room Tip: If staying in Guernsey look out this hotel as it is good value for money.

Hotel had deteriated over the last few years, on a bed & breakfast status but the nearest Restaurant's attitude was appalling and will think twice about returning next year. I would like to review the Hotel where we stayed for the extra night as we were delayed the Hogue du Pomer very good , comfortable, friendly food very reasonable and of a high quality.
