We had bought a 3 night and car package from "Holiday Getaways", and upgraded our room as there is no lift in the hotel, and thus we wanted a ground floor room, which had french windows to overlook the pool. The superior room was very spacious indeed, good TV etc, and table and chairs on the personal patio area.
The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful, especially when I need a dentist as a matter of urgency, and was pointed in the direction of the proprietor's own dentist, who was excellent and sorted me out.
There is a lot of fish on the menu, as to be expected, but we did find our sautee'd brill for my wife's 70th birthday dinner the first night a little overwhelming : we appreciated that it would be sautee'd in butter, but the vegetables were swimming in butter as well. Certainly it isn't a hotel to come to if you want to watch your figure. Wonderful creamy sauce with the mussels another night, though. There are table d'hote menus if you don't want to go a la carte.
It was only after we were commenting on the unchanging and limited cooked part of breakfast that we were told that we could have ordered scrambled or poached eggs etc - pity we weren't told that at the start. There was plenty of cold breakfast buffet.
You are right on the cliffs, one of the best positions on the island, looking out to Herm and Sark, with plenty of walks at your door. If you don't hire a car (very narrow roads), the bus route ends right outside the hotel. There is also a small snack bar across the road from the hotel, and another proper restaurant a ten minute walk down the road, although we did not try it. Apart from a scattering of private homes, the hotel is on its own.
Overall a very enjoyable stay on a lovely island.
