Best Western Hotel De Havelet
Ranked #1 of 19 Hotels in St Peter Port
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 May 2011

We have just returned from 3 nights at the Hotel de Havelet and have nothing but praise for the attentive staff and the delicious food. The hotel is located in a quiet road at the southern end of St. Peter Port, a short walk from Victor Hugo's historic house. If, like us, you arrive on foot, having taken the bus from the airport, you need to be aware that this hotel is halfway up a steep hill. Once we got our breath back, we were pleasantly surprised by the courteous staff and the fact that we were able to get something to eat mid-afternoon. Our room looked out onto a courtyard filled with plants and water features and had an enclosed balcony / sun lounge. Our en suite room was of a good size, had a Sony HD televison, a very comfortable queen size bed and was very clean. Although we did not use it, there was a very inviting indoor pool just two flights of stairs from the room. We ate in the hotel's Wellington restaurant and both the breakfasts and evening meals featured a wide choice and generous portions. The 'cooked to order' food was generally well presented and flavoursome and there was a good choice of European and Southern Hemisphere wines available. The restaurant service was excellent with waiting staff quick to offer menus, drinks, bread, etc. Some of the tables have a panoramic view of Castle Cornet and part of the harbour and this gets even better at night. The public rooms in the main building are elegantly decorated and feature some interesting artwork. All in all, staying at the Hotel de Havelet was a very satisfying experience and if we return to Guernsey, we hope to stay there again.

Just back from 6 nights at this hotel and very impressed by it. Yes the decor is a little tired and the wi fi a bit hit and miss but if you want a central base for a relaxing holiday at a good price then you will not go wrong. The hotel is up a hill but there is a shuttle bus to town and my mum (70+) managed the lesser of the two hills into town and back. The hillside location gives fabulous views of the castle from the terrace and restaurant where the food is excellent and staff extremely helpful and obliging. In fact the staff and management really make this place. The pool and lesiure facilties are spotless and open long hours and are especially nice in the late afternoon sunshine. Rooms are a good size with lots of helpful extras like a hairdrier and iron and alarm clocks. It was very hard to come home.....

We had three nights here and tried the two restaurants. They were both good, although the average age of the clientele seemed rather high. The staff are all overseas workers but they work hard, are very friendly and we only had a couple of language issues.

The room was big and clean but the wifi was poor to middling and the decor a little dated.

The indoor pool, hot tub, sauna and steam room was great and we had it largely to ourselves.

The gardens were lovely and the views were fabulous. It's easy to walk to town to dine out.

A restful and comfortable hotel, good rooms, excellent food and 1st class service and friendly and attentive staff. We have stayed here many times and never been disappointed. Not a hotel for young children which is also what appeals!
Great iconic view from both restaurants and only a 5 minute walk to the town and good bus services for the rest of the island. Only drawback is the return walk up the hill but the hotel does have a mini bus schedule back to the hotel.

Room Tip: Room 27 has a balcony.

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay here. In particular we enjoyed the good old-fashioned service which is sadly lacking in many establishments today. Nothing was too much trouble for the very attentive and polite staff. The other thing worth mentioning, which in itself was worth five stars, is the fact that there was no TV in the bar! Wonderful to be able to have a drink and hear yourself speak!

We have just spent one week at Havelet Hotel in Guernsey with our three kids.
The two rooms were very nice and spacious, just near the swimming pool the kids loved to go every day.
We were on half board basis. It was wonderfull. Dinners were very good and varied.
The breakfast were fabulous specialy the "Smaller English breakfast".
Hotel' s staff was very nice and helpful.
A very nice week indeed !
