There is nothing wrong with this hotel it's just expensive for what you get. I paid £112 per night and I have had better for £70. Having said that this is St Peter Port and all the hotels are expensive. The rooms are spread over what appears to be a couple of buildings and extensions all on different levels.
The room I had was quite small but big enough. The bathroom was also on the small side. Both were scrupulously clean, the bed was big and very comfortable. There was adequate storage and tea & coffee making facilities along with a small flat screen tv. The bathrooms biggest problem was there was no where to put anything other than a very small glass shelf above the basin. Ended up leaving my wash bag on the toilet cistern but had to move it every time I wanted to flush the loo. The shower was controlled by the bath taps which was a very arduous task getting the temperature right before pulling the knob to direct the water to the shower. Again there was no where in the shower to put anything like soap or shampoo.
Breakfast was ok without being very exciting. The full English was one bacon, one sausage, 1/2 tomato, 1/2 round fried bread a spoon full of mushrooms and beans. When you're paying £112 per night could they not stretch to another rasher of bacon and a whole tomato and the other half slice of fried bread. Tip, if you want a quick breaky get down early as the crowd seem to arrive just before 9 and it then takes a while especially if everyone wants omelettes. There was the usual boxed cereals, yogurts and fruit juices on offer along with help yourselves to toast and preserves. There was also a bowl of fruit. The hotel doesn't serve dinner. There was a small bar where you usually had to phone a member of staff to get served at and they never seemed to have any change. There was also a large screen tv room and a couple of well equipped computer and internet stations in the lounge. On the plus side good WiFi was available throughout the hotel including the rooms. There is parking at the front of the hotel for around 10 cars, only one night did I see the parking completely full. It's about a 15 minute walk into town. ( coming back this is all uphill) there is a well served bus route with bus stop 100 yards down the road though if you don't fancy the walk.
I had really good nights sleep during my stay as internally the hotel was very quiet although there was quite a bit of early morning traffic noise especially with the windows open in mid summer.
