Stocks Hotel
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Sark
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 April 2014

We spent 4 nights at Stocks Hotel April 14-18. I am not sure what gave more pleasure, the beauty and peacefulness of Sark (no street lighting giving dark sky status), no cars etc., or the quality of the hotel itself. The room and bed was wonderfully comfortable, the food ought to have earned a Michelin star and nothing was too much trouble for the management or staff.

Room Tip: Discuss your requirements with the hotel, they will ensure you get what is important to you.

If you are looking for somewhere special for a bit of peace and quiet then you need look no further than here. The setting of this modernised, comfortable, friendly hotel is simply superb.
The staff, all of them, were welcoming and helpful throughout our 4-night stay and nothing was too much trouble. Plenty of advice is on hand should you need it.
The food was excellent. Breakfast was a well laid out buffet with specials available to order - no having to make your own toast or join a queue for eggs and bacon. A drink before dinner in the Smugglers Bar is a must; the Chef's canapes were a treat. Dinner was delicious; try the soup or the crab cakes, and the scallops ... ... One minor comment is that we would have preferred quieter (or even no) music in the dining room.
The bedroom was spacious, clean and warm with a turn down service provided.

It was so refreshing to be given a key to the room and not a swipe card; not to hand over one's credit card on arrival; not to have to swerve round the domestic trolley in the corridor each morning - all irritants which lesser hotels might like to note.

This was our first stay at Stocks and surely not our last. It probably went in to our Top 5 Best Hotels. A real treat.Thank you.

Room Tip: There's no lift and our room had a shower but no bath - neither of which was a problem for us.

Forgot to add to our ratings etc. that the food, especially at dinner, was excellent ... creative, fresh, great attention to detail, and really quite exciting!

The location of Stocks is beautiful; set in a wooded valley, peaceful, green,, and yet the sun finds a way in!

This is my second time at Stocks Hotel; the first was for our honeymoon almost 25 years ago. Some things have changed; but, in essentials, it is still the same perfect place it was when there were no televisions or telephones in the rooms. The management and staff, in my mind, are among the best in the world; the rooms are beautifully charming and welcomingly comfortable; and as for the food: words like "excellent" and "superb" only begin to describe it. There is only one other hotel, that I've stayed at, that equals Stocks Hotel (and that's more than 400 Km from Sark!)

It is a wonderful hotel for a quiet, romantic break; but it is equally popular for family holidays, with people returning there every year. How I wish I could do that!

Quite simply... when can we come back? Such a wonderful peaceful place, where both my husband and i and our 2 small boys were made to feel welcome. The meal was exceptional and such a treat. Simply perfect.

This was our second trip to Stocks and it didn't disappoint. The location is fabulous, the staff are welcoming, the rooms very comfortable and well sized and the facilities excellent with a cosy well stocked bar and a couple of lounges. One thing to note is that the pool was freezing, which is to be expected of a solar heated pool in April, but worth knowing if the pool is a key consideration. The hot tub was lovely and warm! We will definitely be going again, hopefully for longer next time.

Room Tip: The family room in the main building is larger than the one in the dower house if you get the choice...

We have been staying at Stocks Hotel on Sark nearly every year for about 25 years and have always loved it. It is now in its 4th year since a major refurbishment and, while it has retained its exceptional charm and friendly atmosphere, it has also succeeded in significantly improving the facilities and level of comfort. The food is superb, the bar is delightful and well stocked, the service is friendly and efficient and the rooms are very comfortable, with all the little extras like robes, hairdryer, chocolates on the pillow, that make you feel very pampered. The hotel is perfectly located in the centre of the island so, although it is off the beaten track, it is still easy to get to the best places on the island for walking.
It has to be one of our favourite places anywhere!
