I stayed with my husband on a "Romantic Break" package over the late May Bank Holiday. The hotel was full although one never felt it was over-run with people. Our room was a superior one and although small, had all one needs and was pretty and well laid-out. Our welcome was enhanced by flowers, excellent chocolates and a quality bottle of champagne - all part of the package. We breakfasted twice - the English breakfast was very good - and dined once. Dinner would not have disgraced a top-end London restaurant and indeed was superior to one we had the week before in such an establishment. Above all, the staff at the Bella Luce are probably the best I have come across in any hotel anywhere in the world. Nothing is too much trouble, you get what you ask for promptly and graciously, they know their jobs well and seem pleased to do them. The smallest niggle is that water escapes from the shower area onto the bathroom floor - a design fault that they know about and are working on. It was no big deal.
I would not hesitate to stay here again and would very much like to come back to this lovely island and do so.
We too found the people of Guernsey warm and welcoming and driving at 35 mph is rather a treat. We were struck by the way drivers give way to one another and thank one for doing so. It is a bit like driving decades ago.
We had many happy experiences in a short time, but a particularly memorable one was eating a fresh crab sandwich from a tea-hut just down the road from the Peninsula Hotel. Turn left off the main road going to the sea at the signpost for the Peninsula. The coastal walks and those on the beaches are fabulous and you will need to walk off some of the delicious food you will be eating on Guernsey.
