During a recent business trip I was fortunate to stay here with colleagues, where we took over the whole hotel. It is simply lovely with an elegant timeless style and welcome which immediately makes one feel at home and relaxed.
My room was very comfortable with simple but thoughtful furnishings, a nice sofa to relax on and a terrace with a fantastic view over St Peter Port, Herm and the harbour. Spotless with lots of storage, digital radio (hurrah!) and iPod dock, original watercolours, dressing gown, tea tray with biccies, newspaper when you want it - all touches which made the room a place you wanted to be.
Common areas are also pleasant with comfy seating and a good blend of privacy and conviviality. In the bar lobby are some rather special woodcuts from Frans Masereel's book 'Passionate Journey' - I wonder if they know they've got them.
We dined on one evening and had lunch on two days - with good coffee in the inevitable 'break-outs'. Everything was exceptionally well-prepared and presented with many of us enviously inspecting others' plates and plenty of food being exchanged to enjoy. Good weather meant we were able to drift in and out from the terrace to eat buffet lunches which was really relaxed and enjoyable.
Simon and his staff are warm, professional and hospitable - a rare combination in hoteliers nowadays. La Fregate is very, very highly recommended.
