“One of the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013

Staff were very helpful and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them. Very attentive but at the same time unobtrusive.

Great setting.

Ate in their 'Country Kitchen' in the evening food and service was excellent as was the early breakfast.

Just wished I could have stayed longer than overnight.

Stocks Hotel has to be the most homely, cosy and welcoming hotel I have ever stayed in. Travelling for business can be a chore but staying at Stocks was nothing but a pleasure from start to finish. All of the staff were fantastic and went out of their way to make me feel welcome and the room was beautifully finished with a warm homely feel.

I choose to have dinner in the restaurant and was fortunate to be there during tennerfest. Their menu was excellent and the food was a very high quality and excellent value for money at £20. The breakfast was also excellent and I can recommend the eggs benedict with black pudding - delicious!

The Smugglers Bar is a lovely warm and cosy bar - perfect for a pre-dinner drink or a nightcap from the extensive selection of whiskeys from around the world.

The hotel was a perfect compliment to the beautiful Isle of Sark. The tasteful décor made me feel that I was not staying in a hotel but at home. Nothing was too much effort for the staff, who were polite and well trained. We were there during the "tennerfest" and thoroughly enjoyed the special menu. The breakfast was also a highlight. In fact, I enjoyed the eggs Benedict so much that I ordered two breakfasts! This hotel is the best I have stayed in within the Channel Islands and would highly recommend it for a weekend away on this unique island.

My boyfriend decided to take me away for a surprise weekend to Sark for my birthday. As we had both never been before, the whole experience was incredible. We arrived at Stocks, after being directed by some very helpful locals, to a lovely welcoming from the hosts. Upon arriving at our room, I discovered "extra touches": a birthday banner on our door, and inside a slate platter inscribed with a birthday message in chocolate. This was a heart warming touch! At dinner, we chose from the Tennerfest menu, which I can honestly say was the best meal I have ever had, and the price did not do it justice! The numerous special touches we received whilst on our stay, from extra courses between our meal to the staff's helpful and friendly nature, made the whole weekend truly fabulous and completely unforgettable. We feel very honoured to have experienced such a stay!

Room Tip: Fountaines (111) - High up with an incredible view over the immaculate gardens.

My wife and I stayed at Stocks for four nights last week-end and we had a totally unforgettable experience.
For the first two nights we were a deux and we had two exceptional dinners. On the first night we chose the Tennerfest menu and every course was superb. On the second night, because it was my birthday, I was able to choose my own menu. I chose smoked salmon, beautifully prepared and presented beef and a mouth-watering raspberry soufflé. Fabulous food very well served by attentive, friendly and efficient staff in the most romantic candlelit setting.
On the next two days and nights we were joined by 40 family and friends to celebrate my birthday in style, and did we celebrate!!
On the first night, we enjoyed excellent fish and chips in the bar imaginatively served in newspaper accompanied by much good wine and by loud karaoke performances - of it has to be said - varying quality. Tremendous fun in a great venue.
We had laid on various entertainments for the following day, including a scavenger hunt on bikes, which events manager Monika helped make extremely successful and enjoyable for everyone. In the evening we had a carefully chosen menu the highlight of which was delicious Sark lamb, again beautifully prepared and presented. Further entertainment, all of which came as a complete surprise to me, followed, the success of which was again in no small measure due to the enthusiastic input of the staff, all of whom got fully into the spirit of the occasion and seemed to enjoy it almost as much as we did.
All the beautifully furnished, well designed and extremely comfortable rooms met with unanimous approval from our guests, as did the breakfasts, snacks and lunches we enjoyed throughout.
Everyone left singing the praises of Stocks and we have no hesitation in heartily recommending it, either for a romantic week-end in this stunning and idiosyncratic island, or for a party venue par excellence.
Paul and his team are running a superb hotel to a very high standard and we will certainly be returning - with or without 40 odd additional guests.

A big birthday requires a big celebration, so when my husband hit one of those with an "Oh" on the end, we invited forty people, friends and family, to join us in Sark for the weekend. And what a weekend it turned out to be! The hotel staff were brilliant, not only in helping us to prepare for the influx, but once the guests were with us, they went out of their way to make sure that everyone was well catered for. All of the rooms are lovely, so there were no worries about anyone being in accommodation inferior to someone else's. Our first evening consisted of fish & chips in the bar followed by karaoke; it's just as well we had taken over the whole hotel, otherwise the quality of the singing and volume of laughter may have been offputting for other guests! After an excellent breakfast the next morning, it was scavenger hunt time on bicycles, lunch at the island hall and games in the hall afterwards. Dinner in the evening - showcasing local produce - was exceptional, the sort of menu you expect in a top, cosmopolitan restaurant rather than on a tiny island in the middle of the Channel.
It takes a lot of organisation to make a weekend for forty appear effortless, and we couldn't have done it without the help of Monika and Paul; nothing we requested was too much trouble, and everything was done in a cheerful manner. There were a lot of happy faces throughout the weekend and no nasty surprises at the end when the bill came, and thanks to Stocks, we can now reflect on a multitude of happy memories of our celebrations in Sark.

We took over the hotel for a long birthday celebration weekend. We know Sark well (55 years visiting...) and also travel a lot. Indeed, we stayed at Stocks some 40 years back. This trip was unique in that we could not find fault in any way and can only praise every aspect of the refurbished hotel and facilities, the excellent service and staff, good food, ambiance and location. Old world charm is successfully combined with modern comforts - including free WiFi that works! And it's the little extras - homemade yoghourt at breakfast, a variety of little pats of butter, boot room with washing facilities etc - that make a difference. You don't always get what you pay for in life, but this is value for money and something special. The highest recommendation...
