It was unexpected to be staying in a 4 star hotel, when our group arrived on 12th May 2012. The staff could not have been more helpful and were, at all times, a real credit to the hotel. I must single out Robert who was brilliant, but frankly all the staff were almost as good!! My room in the VENUE a, well, 3 minute walk (fairly steeply uphill lit path within in their manicured grounds) was superb and when the only criticism I can make is that they changed the sheets after just 4 days (and I and the group was staying 7 nights) you can tell how good it was. The room (number 50) was in 2 parts with the bed and, rather small bathroom, on the lower level and then up 2 full length steps to the "lounge" part with a lovely sofa and an armchair plus the Sherry in the decanter (provided!!!) on the lounge type table with a view of the sea down the valley. No noise at all and excellent nights' sleep every time.
The food was, probably, too rich but the presentation was out of this world and being on a photo holiday we were in a position to take pictures of the sweets/desserts that we enjoyed, but, alas, I do not have the skill to put one on this site. You will have to imagine the little bunny rabbit portrayed using the raspberry coulis!!
I have absolutely no connection with the hotel or the staff and this was my first visit to Guernsey and what good fortune I had to be able to stay in this hotel. It has left a lovely impression and thank you to everyone there.
The meals were taken in the main hotel, down the slope (one needed the pull up to "walk off" the meal), but the benefit of the VENUE where all our group stayed is that it was closer to the bus stop to town. I have not rated the value because it was a photographic group holiday paid to our holiday organisation and neither have I mentioned the fitness centre or spa because I did not use them, though my waistline suggests that I oughta!!
In the main hotel there were most luxuriously comfortable small lounges and a library and plenty of open air space to sit outside (though we were out taking pictures) and in the VENUE there was a meeting room that we were able to use to review our pictures and also a Cinema that we didn't have time to go to!!
