“A really, really nice hotel.”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

My wife and I have just come back from a week's stay at La Barbarie. We had a self-catering apartment consisting of a combined lounge and kitchenette, a spacious bathroom and a bedroom with a king-sized bed and plenty of storage space. All the fixtures and fittings are to a good standard and the rooms were cleaned daily. We were on a bed and breakfast tariff but could also get room service or eat in the hotel for lunch and dinner if you didn't want to prepare your own meals. The food was of an excellent standard at a reasonable price. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. I would certainly recommend La Barbarie if you stay in Guernsey.

Room Tip: Choose a self-catering apartment as you have that bit of extra space and it gives you the flexibilit...

We have just come back from a weeks stay at La Barbarie, it was lovely the food is very good, the breakfasts are a little disappointing, after sampling the evening meals, the only down side is the pool area where there is a lot of room for improvement and speaking to the owner that is his next plan.

Room Tip: the rooms are being refurbished so ask for a refurbished room

What a lovely hotel this is! From the moment you step inside you are welcomed by friendly, attentive staff who show you around and make you feel a valued customer. All the staff are lovely and look happy to work here. The breakfasts are excellent with a choice of Continental or full Guernsey. The evening menu for dining is fabulous and so well presented and cooked. The seafood is wonderful and the Lobster is particularly excellent.
The standard room we stayed in was newly refurbished in a modern design and was comfortable and spotlessly clean.
Very close to the airport and ideally situated to explore the Island. Would definitely return to this hotel again and recommend to anyone else wondering where to stay

We returned for our second stay and loved it just as much. We took six friends with us and we all had a fabulous time. The hotel was great, the service second to none and the food was once again the best we have had in any hotel. The staff in this hotel cannot do enough for you. We cannot praise you enough. It was great and we will be back. Oh and one more thing, the boss supports a great football team! Thank you La Barbarie

Room Tip: pool view is good but old building and all rooms are good

This has to be one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. My wife and I have travelled extensively around the world and stayed in many nice hotels, and this one is amongst the best. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and we were showed around the hotel and then to our apartment. The apartment was very spacious and clean. There was a sitting room with a settee and television with a dining table and small kitchen at one end. The bathroom was small but adequate. The only disappointment here was the poor water pressure and shower head was small and not adjustable. This was a minor issue for us. The bedroom was a nice size with good storage. The bed was comfortable, but pillows were a little too firm for us. We were able to book a table for breakfast each morning and we ate in the restaurant on two nights out of the three we stayed. The standard of service was excellent as was the food. The ambience in the restaurant was superb. Every member of staff in the restaurant was superb at their job. They were not intrusive but made you feel welcome and ensured your dining experience was as good as possible. The menus are varied. There was a lovely bar and outside garden area where we would sit and have a drink either before or after dinner. The small pool was very nice. The location of the hotel is very good being only 15 mins from St Peter Port by car. The airport is also close by. We would highly recommend this hotel and we will definitely be back

Room Tip: Our apartment number 114 was a first floor one. Someone with walking difficulties might find he sta...

Once again my wife and I had a fantastic five nights stay at La Barbarie Hotel, St Martins, Guernsey.
The set menu and a la carte we ate were delicious. The service from all staff was friendly, prompt and efficient.
I was very impressed with the use of local produce in the day to day menus.
On visiting a Farmer's Market at Samourez Park I was delighted to hear how the hotel supported the local farming community by buying their produce. It came as no surprise that local farmers choose La Barbarie to eat!

We were visiting friends in the island and this was an ideal hotel for our needs. It is situated close to the cliff paths so we could walk during the day and visit our friends at night. The grounds are lovely with a pool and lovely flowers which are well kept. The staff are very friendly. The rooms are nice and clean with a very comfortable bed. I would certainly go back again.
