Hotel Hougue du Pommier
Ranked #6 of 6 Hotels in Castel
Reviewed 29 November 2010

I stayed at The Hotel Hougue du Pommier with my 6 year old son and had a fantastic time and experience from the moment we arrived. The staff were friendly, efficient and more than happy to help us throughout our stay. The hotel has a great restaurant offering food throughout the day and evening. The hotel staff and its facilities was perfect for our stay and we both thoroughly enjoyed our holiday there so much so we plan to return next Summer too.

Our stay at the Hotel Hougue du Pommier was brilliant!! We had a well earned break and enjoyed every minute. The staff were so friendly, and couldn't do enough for us. The restaurant was superb and the food delicious. In fact, everything was just great!! I would definitely recommend this hotel

From the time we entered the hotel and checked in, to the time when the manager held the door open to bid us goodbye, we could not have been cared for any better. All of the staff were polite, professional and so helpful.
In an old Country House I got exactly what I expected; I loved the mix of old and new, the creaky floorboards and the wonderful gardens. The food was perfect; I noticed that the locals ate in the bar as well.
As stated in other reviews there are a few faults with the decor and plumbing but so what? The 1st class service and peaceful location easily made up for that.
This is the only hotel in the world that I have ever stayed in more than once. The staff at the hotel put to shame the so called 4 and 5 star big chain hotels. I'm just so glad I went back to stay at the Hougue Du Pommier.

A three star AA hotel, near the beaches on the NE of the island. Staff are very helpful indeed, and the food is excellent and very good value, although the restaurant offers little over the bar meals. The hotel is a little tired, decorations wise, - for example paint and wallpaper is scuffed in places, a telephone has a fault etc., but these faults do not detract unduly from the overall experience. Plenty of parking and location is handy for the main areas of the island.

A car is not necessary.
Close to the coast with beaches.
Excellent bus service on the Number 3 and 3A service. The bus stop is only metres from the hotel. It is a short bus trip into main centre of St Peter Port.
All bus journeys cost £1.00 and you can get a full bus tour of the Island by taking a £1.00 trip on the number 7 bus service.
Nothing is very far from a bus stop.
Hotel Rooms were clean and well appointed. However, they are airless and would benefit from having a ceiling fan fitted.
Service at breakfast was speedy with an excellent range of foods at the buffet and off the menu.
We ate out most days but we did try the hotel restaurant one evening and found the food good but a little pricey.
The bar menu was very good and the bar service friendly and efficient.
Unfortunately the climate is very English and you cannot expect hot sunshine day after day.

We found the staff very helpful from reception to leaving. The hotel was full but breakfast was served at a reasonable pace and was of a good quality. The waiting staff were very attentive throughout our four night stay. We ate in the bar every night as the food was good and reasonably priced. The bar staff also gave good service.
The Sunday carvery was superb.
The room was located in a wing of the hotel which meant walking outside to get to the bar etc. Not so good if raining. Our room was clean and of a good size.
The hotel is in a quiet location with a couple of shops and the beach only ten minutes walk away which suited us.

the hotel is "under new management" - not sure how long since the changeover, but it seems to be going well for the new guys. its obviously a favourite with some long-standing guests, and i can see why. quaint and homely, there's nothing missing in terms of facilities and service, but the fixtures and fittings are a little tired and the bathrooms could do with a simple spruce up - mouldy shower cable and a toilet that you're best keeping the lid down on (perhaps the drains need a good blast?) but overall, welcoming, comfortable and convenient. better for those seeking a quiet relaxing holiday, although the paper-thin walls mean the relaxation of the snorer next door might infringe on your own sleep!
