Reviewed 20 August 2014

We had one night at Stocks Hotel on Sark. Really enjoyed ourselves, lovely room and great breakfast. We eat in the Bistro and thought it ok but very pricey for what we had. Rainy when we arrived but sunny the following day so we're able to enjoy a few hours by the pool, followed by a lovely walk to Little Sark. The hotel is set in beautiful grounds and we would return.

This is a lovely hotel in a nice location with great outdoor seating areas. The staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is great with a choice of juices, fresh fruit , porridge, farmhouse breakfast and toast. The black pudding is the tastiest I have ever had and I have stayed at many different hotels. The room we stayed in (107) was large and comfortable although the bed was a tad too short for me. The room and windows were cleaned daily and the free standing bath was wonderful. The pool and hot tub were most enjoyable during the hot weather. Special mention must be made about the cream tea with two enormous scones each . I would happily stay here again.

Room Tip: Get a room in the main building

Lovely hotel in really good location with nice outdoor seating areas, we had a ground floor room which was nicely furnished and very quiet, especially liked the turn down service with chocolates every night and the bottled water.
Really good choice for breakfast and freshly cooked to order, so glad we there for 4 nights as was able to try everything loved the black pudding. Had dinner in the restaurant which was good and also in Bistro, nice pre dinner drink in the bar where they serve canapés
The carriage ride with Julie was great, very friendly staff and helpful, only one thing that I think they need to improve on is checking at dinner if you would like another drink.

Third visit now having first stayed 10 years ago before the 'transformation' and again a coupel of years ago. And what a transformation it has been. What was a nice country hotel serving excellent food is now a stylish boutique that caters equally well for couples and families, with really comfortable, spacious rooms, public areas and lovely gardens with a couple of pools.

The food is generally excellent though I prefer the brasserie rather than the fine dining restaurant where some of the skills were not up to the dishes on offer. I would have preferred more choice in the Brasserie, ie some of the small selection of starters are repeated as main courses, but I'm splitting hairs really, because the food is very good

Service was really warm and friendly and the staff throughout the hotel seem highly motivated and happy.

Thanks to everyone at Stocks, we had a totally relaxing, memorable stay and will be back next year but next time in greater numbers!

PS i'll drink to keeping those pesky Barclays at bay!

Excellent all round - our room was above the Bar Area but it wasnt a problem as before late any noise soon subsided.
We booked for one night only and were very impressed with the hotel and setting, also loved the decor of our room along with the many tea/coffee varieties. There's a huge flat screen TV in the bedrooms in front of a very comfortable bed (Note: Shower robes/slippers were provided, but the bath is only suitable to sit up in as its quite tiny - the shower room was huge as was the shower)
Dining; We enjoyed the exceptional restaurant food and found staff very very pleasant.
We plan to return to Sark again next year and shall endeavour for another stay at Stocks.

Room Tip: Smokers tables are just outside the bar area and below some bedroom windows

We came to Sark as a family: two grandparents, two parents and two youngsters - right across the age range. Very impressed with accommodation, staff and food (though a little more butter on the BLT would have made it less dry and much tastier!)

We enjoyed the pool and the grounds and appreciated the friendly attendance of all the staff who made every effort to make us feel valued clients.

We'll be back next summer with our grandchildren and their respective parents. You're warned!!

Thank you.

We have recently enjoyed our second stay and the three nights we had went all too quickly. Our room was beautifully appointed... A spacious double on the second floor with fantastic view over the front of the building. We really appreciated the well thought out Sark 'touches'.... Efficient luggage transfer, very useful boot room, chilled water in the room etc. The restaurant was delightful, with very pleasant and friendly young staff. We look forward to our next stay.
