Reviewed 12 February 2013

Another three night stay at Le Friquet-very comfortable rooms and an excellent restaurant blessed with a truly fine chef. All 27 of us (!!) were made to feel very welcome; the carvery was an enormous success with the boys and the staff were, as always, quite superb. For us it was an ideal base for our school hockey tour but additionally for sightseeing between matches. Having also stayed here in the past with my wife, I couldn't recommend Le Friquet more highly

We could not have wished for a more friendly, efficient and comfortable hotel for a winter break in Guernsey. We took advantage of the hotel's offer of 3 nights for the price of 4. Although booked for B&B only, a marvellous seafood platter dinner was included in the deal. We could have opted for a 3-course dinner instead but were glad we went for the platter which was huge and delicious.
Without exception, the staff were excellent, making us feel at home without being overbearing. We were upgraded to a 'Superior Room' at no extra charge. It was clean, well equipped, warm and comfortable. The free, fast wi-fi broadband connection was much appreciated.
A car is almost essential; we took our own but would have hired one if we had visited by air. One note of caution: the exit from the hotel by car is 'blind' in both directions. There are mirrors on the far side of the road, but care is needed!
We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be in the countryside away from the town or beaches.

This hotel should be renowned for its really excellent staff and good food. The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful, nothing was ever too much trouble. Rooms were lovely and very comfortable and well equipped. Will want to stay again when we are back in Guernsey.

Room Tip: had rm 9 which overlooked the lovely garden which had an italianate fountain in it.

Le friquet hotel is in a quiet area of Guernsey. You are met by very warm reception staff who are exceedingly helpful. All rooms have all your needs met, coffee making facilites, en-suite bathroom with bath robes, beautiful decor and satellite tv. We stayed in the conservatory suite for our New Year break and were met by champagne and chocolates.
The food was of an exceptional standard accompanied by the very attentive and hard working staff who had obviously been trained to the highest of standards.
It was our 4th visit at all times of the year and definitely will not be our last because the staff treat first timers and seasoned visitors all as long lost friends.

This was our second stay, last year for New Year, and this year we booked a Winter Warmer 4 night break from the 2nd. I selected one of the newly refurbished Superior rooms. Lots of space and really nice little touches like nice lamps, toiletries, that were lovely, bath robes, oh and did I mention the half bottle of champagne! It was lovely to recognised by the staff from our last visit, and it was nice to see that staff stay at the hotel. We had the seafood dinner, and it was truely amazing, beautifully prepared and presented. The hotel has a lovely cosy atmosphere, the lounge is chintzy and a nice quiet spot to sit and read. The only thing missing would be a roaring log fire, but you can't have everything! A huge thank you to James, Sunny and Sebbe, and the girls who looked father us in reception nd the restaurant. Looking forward to seeing you again, soon! Before I left I asked to see some of the Standard rooms aswell, they had also been revamped and were just as lovely - well done!

We first visited the excellent Falcon Carvery restaurant at Le Friquet in the Spring of 2012 and were so impressed then at the high standards that we decided to spend our first family free Christmas at the hotel. And what a good decision and an excellent treat it was - friendly greeting on arrival Christmas Eve; champagne and chocolates in our lovely room; mulled wine and canapes; fantastic celebration meals served by truly helpful and caring staff; presents on our table Christmas day - I believe Paul and his staff had thought of absolutely everything. Le Friquet met and excelled all our expectations and I can't recommend it highly enough. Give it a try - you won't be disappointed.
