I've recently returned from a stay at Hougue du Pommier and thought I'd add a quick review, particularly at this isn't the first time I've stayed so can do a frank comparison.
The first thing that suprised me was that I was able, like other reviewers, to book on short notice. This hotel used to be packed to the rafters and you had to book many months in advance ~ particularly for the popular summer months. The fact that rooms were available should perhaps have been a small warning sign that things aren't what they used to be!
The room itself was pleasant enough and most importantly clean. The food from both bar and restuarant was good although the choice seemed to be fixed for a month ~ okay I suppose for a long weekend but would be repetitive over a longer stay. There was 1 vegetarian dish available across all menus available. A previous reviewer stated that virtually everything in the bar came with chips which is pretty close to the mark ~ I think there were two risotto type offerings if you didn't like chips.
The staff were friendly. The (new) manager was incredibly rude to both his own staff and in his dismissive manner towards guests. The reception was often unmanned.
The hotel enjoys a lovely location close to Cobo beach which is one of the main reasons for staying. It is a good base to explore the islands and is also on one of the bus routes if you don't drive. Unfortunately though the food and manager experiences would put me off revisiting.
