I stayed at the Pandora for one night (bed, breakfast and evening meal) and found it to be the perfect place to use as a base with the benefit of good meals in their restaurant.
I have read the other reviews here and consider that some people have rather high expectations from a 'value priced' hotel. Yes the decoration is a little dated and the bathroom suites are of mixed 1970s colours - BUT the rooms are clean, beds comfortable, rooms warm, en suite with toilet and bath with plenty of piping hot water and wash basin/vanity unit in the bedroom, thick white fluffy towels, hair dryer, tea and coffee making facilities, flat screen TV and radio. So what more do you want. If you want luxurious surroundings then pay the price and stay in a top of the range hotel. The hotel also has the benefit of plenty of car parking spaces - some in front of the hotel and a large car park to the rear. Parking can be problematic at some hotels in St. Peter Port but not here. A hidden gem is the garden at the rear which is constructed in a series of terraces dropping down to the final terrace where there is seating and table overlooking the sea. Beautiful - even on an Autumn day. I paid £48 for bed, breakfast and evening meal which I understand was a special offer but consider it about the right level as a regular price.
Due to location high above St. Peter Port and with steps leading up to the hotel it would not, in my opinion, be suitable for disabled visitors. Restaurant staff were extremely helpful and offered good service with a smile. At the time of my stay there were guests of several nationalities and the restaurant staff were able to manage the different languages very well. Food was excellent with plenty of choice. A smile would be a nice feature behind the reception desk, it costs nothing and makes visitors feel welcome or upon departure, but unfortunately I did not witness it - I notice other reviewers have reported the same. The Reception is the face of the hotel and the first and lasting impression - an effort should therefore be made.
