“Nice hotel, lovely island.”
Reviewed 1 June 2009

Spent 4 nights at this hotel and we made this choice after checking out reviews on the Trip Advisor site, we then booked a package including taking our car through Holiday Getaways.
The actual hotel is situated in St Martins on the main road to the airport, you do get a few flights go over the hotel but this did not bother us too much even though I am a light sleeper. The room very nicely presented and the hotel has recently been re-decorated and our bedroom was of a very good standard, maybe the only slight criticism was that the central heating was on and this made the bathroom to hot. Our kettle failed to work one morning and the lady in reception went and actually bought a new one for us and I have to say that all the staff were very polite and helpful during our stay. The breakfast was very good and had a lot of differnet choice's, we never used the restaurant for meals so cannot comment on this. My wife used the fitness centre every day and said it was of a very high standard and the swimming pool looked surperb/hygienically clean, these factilites were used as well by the locals so I think this tells you that it was good and also it was not to crowded.
We did use the Deer Hunter Inn down the road for dinner and it was very good and reasonably priced, we also ate in the Falcon Carvery which was also very good and great value.
We visited lots of places such as the German Underground Military Hospital, German Occupation Museum, German Bunker Fort Hommet, Guernsey Candles and many other places which are pretty good as it is the local people who are passing all this information on. Our favorite place was waiting for the tide to go out in the afternoon and then walking over the causeway to Lihou Island and seeing all the birds nesting. Also the beaches, coastal walks are fantastic as the island was quiet, well looked after and very clean.
There are plenty of shops, supermarkets and places to eat and buying fresh produce at the front of people houses is great, which really sums what a lovely beautfiul, peaceful island Guernsey is.
Finally a couple of tips would be to leave your petrol tank empty if you bring your car to the island as the petrol is as low as 78 pence a litre and also purchase a Guernsey parking disc which is a must in St Peters Port and this can be purchased from any garage.

Good value for money. Hotel is very hot constantly opening windows and turning off radiators. Breakfast was ok , only sampled snack menu which was acceptable but not thrilling. Health suite and pool was excellent. Staff tried hard but did not always deliver good service.

Would not return to hotel but Guernsey was as beautiful as ever.

Lovely hotel on the beautiful island of Guernsey. Reasonably priced. Good location if you have a car - near all major sights but not in centre of town. Hotel room clean and well equipped. Public rooms nicely decorated. Staff friendly and helpful.

They offered set menus every evening and we tried the dinner on the first day because we were tired. The food was so good (and reasonably priced) that we ate there every evening of the 4 nights of our holiday. If you get the chance, try the apple pie - best I have ever tasted!!

Late booking. Bedrooms excellent. Ensuite good. Cleanliness excellent. Heath suite/pool good. Was a "warm" building. Stayed BandB. Did not eat in. Breakfast good. Range on offer excellent.Service all round good. Hotel bar/lounge comfortable.Parking no problem. Airplane noise overhead for 30 seconds. Propeller aircraft mainly. Earliest 0630. Latest 2130.About 10/hour at worst. Excellent eatery nearby "The Deerhound Inn". Time to nearest beach by car 20minutes.
Would return again.
Fast Ferry good from Weymouth. OK to Poole, but 30minutes to get into dock through all the boats !

My wife and I arranged this 5 night break at short notice via a newspaper advert. We had read most reviews available but you can"t be sure until you experience for yourself.
We upgraded to a 4 poster executive room, to treat ourselves, and it was beautifully appointed, very tastefully decorated and furnished. The downside was that the room was extremely hot at first , I turned off the radiators, however much of the heat was from hidden pipes. We opened the window for the duration and reception immediately gave us two fans and eventually the temperature became bearable. The window was kept open night and day which meant the aircraft noise between 6am & 9.30pm was more pronounced, but acceptable.Hot water was no problem but heat from the pipes transmitted to the cold water pipes to make it lukewarm, not for drinking, so we had iced water to our room for drinking.Otherwise our room was superb, with facilities as described.

We found the senior staff very helpfull but if you are unlucky enough to be attended solely by junior staff you may have problems. They try to be helpfull but their inexperience and english language difficulties may cause episodes from Fawlty Towers to become reality! We had some minor episodes but not bad enough to avoid seeing the funny side.

The swimming pool and leisure suite is excellent and I could not fault it.

The whole hotel was very clean and well finished.

Car parking is plentifull.

Food was a good, we were on half board and enjoyed almost all of our meals.Both the table de hote & a la carte menus had a wide choice of starters, mains and desserts.


We would return here again without hesitation. It is 3 star rated and you get this as a minimum

We have just returned from 4 days at this wonderful hotel.

The staff were all, without exception extremely friendly and proffessional. The entire hotel is ultra clean and contemporary in design. Food was excellent especially the evening meal we had.
The bar area is very relaxing and if you like you can eat here if you don't want to eat in the restaurant.

I cannot praise this hotel highly enough.

Recommendations for eating out on the island apart from La Trelade are Da Nellos in St Peter Port, La Grand Mere, Beaucette Marina ( what a fantastic location ) and Fermain Valley Hotel.

Thank you La Trelade for a memorable stay.

  • Liked — Spottlesley clean hotel and fabulous staff
  • Disliked — Bar closed between 2pm and 5pm so no coffe and tea available during this time.

Nice hotel and rooms have been recently re-done with new bathrooms etc. The food is also very good. Stayed a couple of times and would come back. Paid £72 B& B and would consider staying if they asked for more than that for a single. It is near the airport and so you can hear the planes which I think stop at around 9pm and start just after 6am! Nice people too.
