OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

What's not to love? A sandy beach directly outside the hotel, a busy working harbour around the corner - where you can get boat trips to spot puffins and gannets - and the capital St Anne's just a 15-minute walk away. The airport is a six-minute drive away or a 25-minute walk. The island is just 1.5 miles by 3 miles and so everywhere on the island is walkable from here if you've got the right shoes on.

By plane: direct flights are only from Southampton and take 40 minutes. Indirect regional flights go via Guernsey. The hotel is a 5-minute drive from the airport. Book flights.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The hotel is formed out of a terrace of colourful gabled houses that run along the edge of the beach. Inside, it's smart, with a seaside feel brought in by driftwood artwork on the walls and prints of seascapes. The Vaults steakhouse and cocktail bar has the most contemporary design.

THE FACILITIES

Nothing is too much trouble here, and the staff go the extra mile to make your stay special. That might be a surprise bottle of prosecco in your room if they know you are celebrating or help to book a car or bicycle hire. You'll find board games and books in the lounge.
