OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Set just off a peaceful country lane in the sleepy parish of St Martin, this is a good location for exploring the cliff paths of the south coast, which can be reached in ten minutes on foot from the hotel. Moulin Huet bay, the subject of several paintings by Renoir, is a 20-min walk away. Sandy Saints Bay is just a ten-minute saunter away (although it will take you considerably longer on the way back up the steep hill).

By plane: flights from London Heathrow to Guernsey take around 1 hour 15 minutes. The hotel is less than 10 minutes' taxi ride from the airport.

By boat: ferries to St Peter Port run from Poole (3 hours) and Portsmouth (7 hours). Free parking available. Book boats.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The granite exterior of this hotel is postcard-perfect with window boxes heaving with petunias in spring and summer and traditional sash windows. Inside, they have been bold with a refurbishment that includes photo-real wallpaper of local scenes or Italianate gardens and stylish wood-effect flooring. The tables and chairs on the terrace are popular for drinks in the summer.

THE FACILITIES

You'll get a lovely, friendly greeting from the reception staff, who can also help you hire bicycles or book horse riding or boat rides and advise you on the best things to see and do in the area. The outdoor pool is heated from Easter to October and there's also a car park.
