We stayed here for 3 nights for our 10th wedding anniversary. We stayed in a gold room with a balcony in the main hotel, which was a good size and very pleasant with a nice bathroom, although a shower but no bath. There were nice touches like a box of fudge, sherry and fruit which were topped up daily and a good selection of water, teas, coffee and biscuits. On our first night we came back to our room to find rose petals scattered on our bed and an anniversary card, which was a lovely personal touch.
The breakfast was excellent with a good choice of cold buffet and hot food cooked to order- delicious pancakes and eggs Benedict! We ate from the bar menu , the mushroom tartin was delicious and reasonably priced. The Ocean restaurant was good, but the specials were disappointing when we were there- no seafood special which we had been hoping for.
The complimentary shuttle service was useful to/ from the airport, and staff were accommodating in letting us grab an early breakfast on Saturday when we had an early start for a day trip. Whilst some of the staff were excellent others on reception seemed a but grumpy.
What really made the stay excellent though was the stunning location and views from the hotel. The restaurant and some of the rooms overlook the gardens with the sea in the background. It is a beautiful (but hilly) walk down through the lovely, well kept, tropical hotel garden, then through the woods to Fermain bay, which is just stunning surrounded by wooded cliffs, with views of Herm and Sark in the distance, and a pleasant cafe.
It was about a 20 minute scenic downhill walk to St Peter Port, the downside of course is that it is uphill all the way back, but a reasonable bus service runs just past the hotel, and was a bargain at £1 per person!
All in all a very enjoyable stay, and everything we had hoped for!
