Fermain Valley Hotel
Ranked #6 of 19 Hotels in St Peter Port
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 December 2011

Guernsey is not a big island, but this hotel gives a feeling of seclusion. Situated in a pretty valley its a pleasant stroll down the road through woods to a small stony beach. Most people will drive to the hotel - it would be quite a walk from St Peter Port. All the rooms to the front of the hotel have views down the valley towards the sea in the middle distance. I have used this hotel many times on business. There is free wifi. Food is OK in the dining room but not fabulous. There is a new bar opened up - the "Rock Garden" which might appeal to the younger guests but feels incongruous. The old bar is still there and conservative. As elsewhere in the CI, staff are mostly Eastern European - but very friendly and efficient. Public areas in the hotel are to a good standard. We often use the business meeting room "The Venue" which is good for private meetings and dining.

Room Tip: Rooms to the front of the hotel should have sea views. Some rooms are much bigger than others esp o...

Exellent hotel with very good staff,clean and well organised,very good food with wonderful dinners, the whole hotel runs like clockwork with staff being very helpful.
My only disappointment was that it is in the flight path of Guernsey Airport,planes starting from around 6 o`clock in the morning!!!

I took my wife for an anniversary surprise stay to Fermain - it was wonderful!
We had a sea view room looking down the valley and literally the sun shone for us - lovely hotel facilities and walks. Take a walk around the gardens....
We live in Guernsey and this is our favourite hotel - haven't stayed overnight locally up till now, and certainly this is worth repeating.

I've stayed a couple of times at the Fermain Valley in the last three months. The view is wonderful and the beds very comfortable. The staff are pleasant. It's just slightly awkward. The rooms are too hot (I had to sleep with balcony door open) and I couldn't find the thermostat (a colleague says there's one in the floor). There aren't enough plugs to charge phones/ipads etc. I don't like showers which mean you have to climb into a bath. It's not possible to access the BBC website (they suggested it was something to do with having to restrict access to websites to comply with Guernsey regulations). The planes come into the airport rather noisily just overhead. The signposting is a bit odd (so finding The Venue from within the main building can be a bit tricky). I just wonder whether there isn't enough good quality competition?

Room Tip: Ask where it will be...

Having read the reviews about "The Venue", a kind of annex to the Fermain Valley Hotel, and some restaurant experiences, we arrived quite sceptical about the value of the kgb-voucher, a friend had bought. We didn't mind the walk between the main building and The Venue through beautiful gardens and: our room was lovely and quiet looking onto the garden, though the building is - I admit - close to the road. We slept with open windows and woke up to the sound of birds and the wind in a majestic tree.
I must admit, the door to our room could have been a bit more sound proof, but apart from that we couldn't grumble. I cannot tell how much the pub on the other side of the road at the top of the garden might influence the noise level eg on a warm Friday or Saturday evening in summer.
The food in the restaurant was excellent, the service professional. We even had a go at the risotto, which some people apparently didn't like. It was creamy and light as I experienced it in the best Venetian and Tuscany restaurants. Sometimes in Britain risottos are a far too dry lump of sticky rice, not so at the Valley Restaurant @ Fermain Valley. The vegetarian choice in the Tennerfest menue was surprising, creative and tasty (many chefs seem to know no better than the boring grilled haloumi or pasta).
We would book again.

I stayed here for a four weeks on business. The staff were generally really helpful and the service was good. Breakfasts were great and evening meals good quality although the dining room lacked a little atmosphere. The location is great, with a great view over Fermain bay. Having stayed in various room I think the gold rooms with balconies are better than platinum unless you really want a large room. The hotel has a relaxed feel with a some comfortable seating/ chill out areas. The balcony areas outside the restaurant are great in the summer too.
The hotel is situated outside St Peter port so unless you are prepared to drive or get a taxi, your dining options in the area are quite limited.
Wi-fi is available but there are some restrictions placed on websites which includes such sites as facebook. This is apparently to stop people diownloading movies which affects the hotels internet. Not a major problem unless you are a facebook addict....

arrived late in the evening for check in,warmly greeted,we were taken to our balcony room and shown the view and offered a tour of the hotel,on arriving in the bar we had a lovely meal, the local steak was cooked to perfection, the staff are very helpful and polite, breakfast was again fantastic lovelly choice and perfect scambled eggs, the room was quite hot as the weather was unusally mild during our stay but you cant expect the hotel to turn the heating off in the whole hotel!! we slept with the balcony door open and the sea breeze was great and listening to the waves comming into the shore was again great, the free bus the hotel runs is again fab with our driver even taking us to the ocuppation museum, I am already planning my next visit as I dont think you could find a better hotel on the island.
