“Home from work!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2013

i have started coming over here for a few days a week for work. It is wonderful to come back to a) such a nice house and b) such lovely hosts - feels like you are going to a house party - even though i was there on my own in middle of winter. David and Jane love people and love life - beautiful home - fabulous hospitality - fabulous food cooked by them - it is infectious - go see for yourself:)

Exceptional hospitality by Jane and David, exchanging a wide range of experiences from around the globe. The room and bed were extremely comfortable and the huge soft fluffy towels a treat. Lovely views from bedroom and bathroom towards the sea. Breakfast was incredible and nothing was too much trouble. Time was too short to sample the spa pool. Jane and David took every trouble to facilitate an amazing cliff top walk in the sunshine before we left. Highly recommend.

This delightful place is run by the most charming couple who go out of their way to ensure that your stay is a memorable one. From the moment we arrived we were very well looked after and enjoyed mixing with the other guests. Our room was very comfortable and our breakfast each morning was a feast in itself. The owners even took us into town in the evening when we went out, not something I have ever experienced before when staying in a guest house.
The whole house was at our disposal and we were able to come and go at will. I would not wish to stay elsewhere should I find myself on the island in the future and have no hesitation in giving this place 11/10!!

Like its proprietors, La Roche, flies the flag for Guernsey, homespun hospitality, high-quality service, comfort and fine food and wine. David and Jane not only make you feel at home, they are knowledgeable, helpful and ever ready to - as they say in Guernsey - 'run you down'. Nothing sinister or a reflection of their standard of driving but meaning a taxi service to town, the airport or harbour and to the many wonderful restaurants and pubs. There's a mini cinema in the converted basement and a secluded spa pool in the garden, heated at 38˚C, a church next door to 'bong' the hours and views to the other Channel Islands. Old fashioned service at its very best in a traditional Guernsey country gentleman's home.

Great house in a lovely setting but what made it special for us was our hosts who treated us like part of their family and made us feel so welcome. The breakfast every morning was great and plentiful and the lifts into town and the help in finding alternative travel arrangements after our return ferry was cancelled was much appreciated. A gem amongst the other hotels on Guernsey. Tony and Gaby

A magical place with the perfect hosts Jane and David who welcome you with kindness and generosity. We stayed in the Rose room with a very comfortable bed and a stunning bathroom with sunken bath. Loved the garden and the pool was the warmest we have ever experienced.David prepared a delicious four course meal for us and the other guests, all delightful people who made the evening special. The breakfast was well cooked by David with lovely touches such as fresh blackberries and strawberries.We can only sum up our stay as Perfection. We will definitely return.
