Stayed at L’Eree Bay for 3 nights in the first week of their 2013 season and, after some amusing moments whilst the key was being found, I was pleasantly surprised to find the room had a bath in the ensuite: There were double & single beds and a raised seating area by the window which looked directly out over the sea. The (free) Wi-Fi signal strength was very good. On the evening of our first night we both had Fillet Steaks (in the Brasserie) which were very nice; there was a slight mix up with the desserts as we’d asked for Rocky Horror cheesecake but got chocolate brownies; not wanting these we asked for Apple Crumble pie & ice cream (a combination not even on the menu) & my wife had Banoffee Cheesecake. The next evening I had Madras King Prawn curry & my wife had Pork & Stilton; both followed by Profiteroles: All the meals we had were excellent. The food here is very good and this was proven on the Friday evening as the Brasserie was packed so it’s advisable to book a table.
On our first night, the public bar (2 floors below our room), appeared to close early (normally open until 11:45pm) and it was very quiet outside all evening: I slept quite well on all three nights although on the second, there appeared to be some kind of function going on in the bar, with moderate noise lasting until midnight.
The breakfasts were quite acceptable and initially entirely waitress served: Although the cooked breakfast used tinned tomatoes these were very nutritious. On our last morning breakfast was self service (apart from the toast) from a hot buffet.
I appreciated the ensuite bath as we did a lot of walking (17 miles in 3 days!): Although you can get many books about walking in Guernsey, I used website www.guernseywalker.me.uk downloading quite a few maps & guides from this which I put on my tablet. L’Eree bay hotel is well positioned for west coast walking and, for those without a car, there is a bus stop directly outside.
All the staff were very friendly and courteous: In fact, the evening before we checked out, I was having trouble printing out flight boarding cards from the hotel's laptop & printer in the lounge & the chef (Mark Frost) kindly let us do this on his office machine.
