Our first visit to Guernsey, and could not fault Del Mar Court. Spotlessly clean, both in the apartment and out. Even after a stormy night, by 9am the grounds and pool were cleaned and swept and looked as if the storm had never happened! Just wish the weather would have allowed us to make more use of the lovely pool! All the staff are so friendly and extremely efficient, and nothing is too much trouble - our over washbasin light & shaver point didn't work properly and was replaced within an hour of us reporting it. Thank you Sandra, Phil and Pat (and guest Irene for her island knowledge!)! We were in a 1 bedroomed ground floor apartment due to be refurbished, but it was extremely comfortable, and we were very happy with it. Only slight inconvenience was the lack of water pressure for the shower, bit it did the job - just, and there was always loads of hot water.
Kitchen well equipped for holiday accommodation, just as on inventory - and there was a hair dryer (which wasn't on inventory) and the Guernsey Gache was delicious!
I have to say that although shops and a couple of restaurants are within easy walking distance in day light - we felt that we didn't want to risk the roads walking after dark as no pavements, but taxis are easy to get and quite reasonable if you don't want to drive.
Del Mar Court is a lovely location for a relaxing holiday and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Among places to visit - the Occupation museum, German Underground Hospital and Shipwreck Museum (Fort Grey) all fascinating, and do not miss The Little Chapel - seeing is believing, it's beautiful! And if you like seafood don't miss the Seafood shop on the south quay!!
Points to note about Guernsey as a whole - it is not disabled friendly - most of the attractions we visited would not be accessible for wheelchair users, Guernsey is very hilly and even in St Peter Port a lot of the shops had no apparent easy disabled access. Also do not expect quiet roads - there are more cars on Guernsey than people and driving is NOT a relaxing experience! Note the dents and scrapes on the Guernsey cars in the queues for the ferry at Weymouth! Filters are interesting too, but work! In a week in September I think I only got into 5th gear 2 or 3 times - and I am not a nervous driver! 35 miles an hour is the speed limit - you're lucky to exceed 30 most of the time! A good game for children - spot the Guernsey cow - not as easy as you might think!
Overall a lovely holiday, a rather damp week brightened by Del Mar Court!
