Have just returned from 4 day break with husband to celebrate my birthday. We picked this hotel for its location and asked for room with balcony, these overlook the beach and therefore get the sunsets. The road between the hotel and the beach can be little noisy but you soon get used to this.
Our flight from Manchester was early morning so when we arrived at the hotel our room wasn't ready, but just down the road was a lovely tea room so we were able to go there and have a leisurely lunch. The room had a very comfortable bed, robes, slippers, complimentary water, fruit and chocolates. Breakfasts were very good, and your hot choice was served to your table, along with your tea/coffee. Dining room staff were all very pleasant. The hotel was participating in the "Tennerfest" scheme that occurs in October on Jersey and Guernsey and we had evening meal there on the night of my birthday - very good menu at reasonable price. On the other nights we ate out at different places, first night was at the Rockmount pub next door but as it was Friday night it was extremely noisy and crowded in there and to be honest we didn't enjoy the food and my husband had to take his cloudy pint back twice to be replaced.
Hotel bar/lounge very pleasant to sit in at night with a glass of wine or two and again bar staff all very friendly and efficient.
The bay is beautiful, in fact most of the coastline around Guernsey is. We hired a car and tootled around from bay to bay, stopping for coffee, lunch etc, very laid back here and relaxed, upper speed limit is only 35mph, less in most places so makes for unstressful driving.
I have no hesitation in recommending the hotel to others and would definitely return.
