“A great surprise in Guernsey”
Reviewed 19 May 2010

I felt welcomed from the minute i arrived until the last minute i left.
The staff and management are extremely welcoming and professional. The rooms were adequate but bar and the menu was excellent. The fact that they watched everything to make sure that everyone was treated so well. The breakfast was excellent and i cant reccomend the hotel more highly.

I had a lovely stay at Les Douvres. The hotel is charming and comfortable, has a nice bar and excellent restaurant (every meal was delicious and superbly presented). Rui and Angeline were attentive host and hostess. The situation of the hotel was perfect for me; a bus stop outside made getting around easy and the cliff tops a pleasant 15 minute walk away.

Within walking distance (approx 15 mins) of some of the most beautiful cliff walks. Clean, large, bright room with plenty of storage and very comfortable 6' bed. Evening meals were excellent, with the option of a nice intimate eating area. Rui and Angelina even gave me a thoughtful surprise on my birthday! They made us very welcome and we wish them every success. We would certainly return to this hotel and recommend it to anyone visiting the island.

What a delightful experience! We were made to feel so welcome and treated as if we were the only guests in the hotel by the lovely Angelina and Rui. The food was some of the best we've ever tasted whilst the room was everything we wanted; the bed was very comfortable, towels were changed every day and the refreshments were kept topped up. Les Douvres is also in a lovely location with a variety of walks on the doorstep. We were very impressed with everything about Guernsey and have absolutely nothing negative to say. Our week there was a very happy and memorable one and we look forward to returning.

The hotel is great, the friendly and helpful service from Rui & Angelina is outstanding. The food, excellent. Guernsey itself - a small island, I don't think we'd want to spend 2 weeks there. (We're not beach people.) But some interesting museums of the German occupation and St. Peter Port is a very nice little town. The coastline is lovely. Narrow roads, much backing up to pass other vehicles but there is a good bus service.

The new owners are working hard and succeeding in providing top quality servce in a very inviting atmosphere. The hotel is being gradually renovated with excellent results. Rooms a little tired but we are sure this will be addressed in the near future.
We left with the feeling we had made new friends and will most likely return.
