“Just Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2012

Thank you so much everybody at The Barbarie for a fantastic last minute weekend. It was our anniversary and we should have been in Sark, but due to bad weather it was cancelled. In an hour on a friday evening, we booked the last ferry to Guernsey, and saw the advert for The Barbarie in the phone book, and right from the start the staff were just so professional. We arrived to the hotel by taxi that they arranged for us at 10pm, were given a fantastic superior room that was HUGE, then we were taken to the the lovely snug lounge to be fed by the biggest sandwiches i have ever seen...and a very welcome drink!
We dined in their award winning restaurant the following evening and once again it was superb and very good value for money. There was an excellent choice for breakfast, the service was faultless. The hotel is situated in a quiet country lane in St Martins, within minutes of fantastic coastal walks,spotlessly clean, the rooms just incredible...but most importantly the professionally trained staff..that make you feel you are the most important person in the world. Thank you so much..you turned a disapointment into a delight.

Room Tip: The superior rooms are huge.

We stayed at La Barbarie for 5 nights in June - our first time in Guernsey and also to attend a wedding nearby.
The hotel is in a lovely location with easy walks nearby. The gardens are very pretty and well kept and the car park is just about big enough for all the hotel residents. The swimming pool looked lovely but the weather was a bit variable so we never got to use it.We had booked 2 rooms for our family and both were very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed (trouser press/ironing table and iron, kettle and cups etc, toiletries replaced every day, flat screen TV with most channels).
Reception is very welcoming and the staff very helpful. The restaurant is very light and airey and the food is excellent. Service is also excellent under the command of Ivo who is very approachable and will put himslef out to serve his customers. We were on a B&B stay but also ate several dinners as the food was so good and the atmosphere was refined but not stuffy.
A real gem of a hotel and restaurant serving top food.
We would definitely reccommend this hotel to anyone visiting Guernsey

We stayed at La Barbarie for five nights, staying in one of their self catering units. The hotel is in a beautiful part of Guernsey.....relatively close to all activities, museums, etc. The staff are superior and of great help. The restaurant is superb with wonderful service and food.....especially fresh sea food. We would stay here again without any thought. The self catering unit was well supplied and had excellent wi-fi. If you come to Guensey, you need to stay here!

Room Tip: Our self catering unit was 111 and perfect for a couple. Only problem is that water pressure was ho...

The restaurant is our favourite on the island and although we have tried a few others we always return to La Barbarie. This time we thought would try the hotel as well as we were tempted by the special offer of half board, car hire and a bottle of fizz. We flew into the island in a light aircraft and had booked for two nights. However, the weather forecast was terrible for the day we were leaving so we had to cutail our stay to one night only as we wouldn't have been able to fly out otherwise. Andy was so understanding and there was absolutely no quibble at all in cancelling one night's stay. I must say I was very impressed and it all added up to a memorable stay. The service here is always immaculate and I am even more in awe now. The room was in the main hotel and was lovely. Lovely big room and bed and flat screen TV. Lovely toiletries as well. Breakfast was really good, as was the evening meal but then we expect nothing less having eaten here many times. Well done, La Barbarie, you are beginning to feel like a second home!!!

We ate at most of the St Martins restaurants inc Auberge and Bella Luce. This is the one on our week long stay that merited a revisit. Compared to the others it was far more comfortable and had a busy bustle throughout. Bella Luce is upmarket,quiet refined; Auberge was by comparison Nouveau. Barbarie staff are so precise and the kitchen is faultless in its precision delivery. A sole quibble would be that along with other diners nearby, this speedy delivery left us needing a break. Our gorgeous waitress enquired " break with menu or without?" If you can only manage one of St Martins excellent eateries I would make it this one.

We opted to dine at this hotel as visitors one evening of our stay on the Island. Whilst the resturant has a tradtional family feeling the food and service are excellent. Reasonably priced, and locally sourced produce. Would recommend.

Second visit to this great hotel, and it was every bit as good as the first time. Once again stayed in one of their premier rooms, which was very clean and comfortable. Chose half board (again) because the food is varied and fantastic; breakfasts that keep you going all day, and evening meals that offer excellent local sea-food. Everything is run at your pace, so evening meals are unhurried and give you time to reflect on the day with a great choice of wines. All the hotel staff are friendly and attentive and happy to chat if that's what you want. On a personal note, I was really pleased to see they now stock the local Guernsey beer!
