“Nice place to be”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

La Barbarie is one of those very small intimate hotels.....made of Guernsey Island stone and located in the countryside lanes of St Martins of beautiful Guernsey. A short walk to Saints bay and the magical Icart. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The restaurant is terrific with fine dining and a good selection of foods. The rooms are very clean, a little dated....but the bathrooms are very clean and have excellent Hot water pressure. Wi Fi is also pervasive and good and free!

You will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: For those with disabled or aged guests do stay on the ground floors.

This must be one of the best hotel everyone is friendly and helpful .The accommodation was lovely. Ivo and Raivis looked after us really well as did Andy. We were especially grateful to Ivo for fitting all our extra guests for dinner.
Not only is the hotel excellent but you get a Guernsey as well. We cannot recommend La Barbarie high enough

Room Tip: Superior rooms really lovely

We had a wonderful time. Stayed here for four nights. Staff were friendly and helpful at all times. The room was clean and comfortable. The restaurant was pleasant, the food really nice at both dinner and breakfast. The hotel is in a lovely position and overall highly recommended.

The accommodation in one of the superior rooms was worth the extra. The team of staff were attentive and nothing was too much trouble.We have stayed on most of the hotels on the island including 5 star OGH.This hotel is more homely and offers comparable food and comfort. The position of the hotel is excellent for the best part of the island for quietness and privacy. We will stay again...

Room Tip: pay for a superior room with a balcony if poss

A lovely hotel with excellent cuisine and friendly and helpful staff. Very good value. The rooms are comfortable without being extravagant. In the summer months the gardens and window boxes are delightful. We've stayed there for many years often twice a year and thoroughly recommend it. Well done to Andy and his team!

We opted for the 1 bed self catering apartment, and was definitely happy with our choice.
The apartment had a good sized living room / kitchen area, and a good sized bedroom too!
While the decor is a bit old fashioned, it is clean and cosy, perfect for a long weekend.

Service from the hotel was great, they were happy to provide extra bedding and extending the check out time was no problem at all for them.
Ate at the restaurant on the first night, and it was delicious.
Probably would have eaten there more often if I was staying in a normal hotel room.
Booking again next time I go to Guernsey!

Room Tip: If going for a self catering apartment, ask for the top floor one as it is further away from the car...

We live in Guernsey so were not staying at the hotel but and decided to go for Sunday lunch at La Barbarie where we enjoyed a very good carvery meal. Rather unusual for us as generally we do not like carvery food but this was very good with freshly made dishes and no large queues despite the restaurant being very busy. Service as always was excellent with just the right amount of friendliness.
