“A lovely hotel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

This hotel is certainly worthy of more than 3 stars. Lovely pool and leisure centre. Really helpful and attentive staff. Room very comfortable and spotless. Food was excellent. My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful fresh crab salad. The crab was locally caught.

Stayed a week in July 2014. I cannot fault this hotel . It was clean, up to date,staff very friendly and helpful, food excellent and well priced. The previous reviewer Bob024 gives you the lowdown on all the facilitiesand I agree with his comments. This must be the best family run hotel!

This was our second visit to La Villette hotel, the last being 2 years ago. It is located in a rural setting, about 3 miles from St Peter Port and a couple of miles from the airport. Guernsey is a small island, so you are never far from anywhere, and the advantage of this hotel is that you are close to five main bus routes; #81 stops right outside the door and provides a service into St Peter Port, and buses #11, #91, #92 and #93 (“The Guernsey Vaeux”) stop on the main Forest Road about 300 yards away. There is some noise from the airport as the hotel is not far from the flight path, with jets being used more frequently and you might be woken by the first flight into the airport at 6.30am, but that will be the same everywhere on Guernsey.
The hotel has a lovely 'free' health and spa centre, featuring an indoor & outdoor swimming pools; Jacuzzis and steam rooms as well as a gym and solarium.
It also has a bar/ bistro which offers a broad range of meals at a very competitive price and is well used by the locals. The bar prices are standard pub prices. Breakfast is provided in the main restaurant, with a broad range of cereals, fresh fruit and either a full English breakfast or fish. All the staff and management are friendly and helpful.
The one drawback of the hotel is that the rooms are slightly smaller than many hotels, which we understand was because we had twin beds. The rooms with double beds we were told (and saw on inspection) seemed larger. The rooms come with flat screen television and tea/ coffee making facilities and although our room only had a shower, others had a bath as well. There is 'free' WiFi internet around the hotel.
The hotel also seems to be used longer term by workmen, and we had some problems with late night (or early hour) noise, as these people kept different hours to the resident holidaymakers. While we made complaints, it only resulted in us having to relocate to a different room.
Overall, it is a lovely place to stay while on Guernsey and we hope to revisit in the future.

Spent a few days here after 4 days in Jersey. Great facilities. The Whole Hotel is very clean and looks as though it has been refurbished. The Leisure Suite is excellent...large indoor swimming pool with two jacuzzis and saunas, plus well equipped gym. An added bonus of a heated outdoor pool too. This pool was so warm it was wonderful! Towels and robes are readily provided. Our room was spacious and the kingsize bed was so comfortable. We booked bed and breakfast but ended up having dinner here too. The menu was varied and tasty. Breakfast was hearty too. Would recommend this hotel - it is excellent value for money. It is slightly out of town and if we came again we would hire a car. However we managed to get around via the buses. Well done La Villette!

Just returned from two wonderful weeks in Guernsey and part of our enjoyment was down to the quality of the hotel. Chosen at random after reading previous reviews and in desired location and price range. The hotel is very clean, I cannot fault the standard of cleanliness in either the public areas or hotel rooms. My only negative comment on the room was that it was very warm but as we were on the second floor it was possible to leave the large windows open all the time to help improve the airflow.We stayed on a B & B basis so only ate at the hotel a couple of evenings when we were too tired or late to go out, didn't,have to book and the staff always found a table for us. The food was good, fairly basic but well cooked and good value for money. The breakfast was excellent plenty of choice with fruit, cereals and yoghurt and a cooked breakfast which was prepared to order. There are two pools at the hotel a smaller outdoor heated pool and a large indoor pool in the Spa, both were very clean and the unlimited Spa facilities excellent. The hotel is situated in St. Martins which is known as the "hotel belt" it's a quiet location apart from the occasional airplane heading for the local airport but that was not an issue for us. It's a seven minute drive from St Peterport (dependant on time of day) or a twenty minute bus journey , the bus stop is at the end of the hotel drive and the local service is excellent. At present all journeys cost £1 but there are plans to make it a free service for 2015. For journeys into St Peterport I would recommend taking the bus but be aware the last bus to St. Martins leaves at 8.30pm. Overall, I would stay at La Villette again.

We only stayed overnight arriving after 7:00pm and leaving at 5:30am. We were v happy with facilities in room and particularly the cleanliness. Most impressive was the attention of the night manager who got up to make sure we had breakfast before we left at 5:30 am. Big thank you to that gentleman. We were there because of travel plans collapsing and enforced stay over. That made it more bearable.
