We recently had our wedding at La Grande Mare and Archana and the team were outstanding. They couldn't have done any more for us and I would recommend the hotel for the rooms, service, food and General suitability. It was a superb day/night and I thank Archana and the team for their efforts. Thanks

We were booked into the restaurant for a 'office' do and took advantage of a special deal to stay over in the hotel. We were allocated a studio suite which was extremely accommodating. Both the bedroom and the dayroom cum kitchen were very generous in space- better than our flat in Guernsey. Every thing was spic & span. The bar... More

Spent a week here with some family and La Grande Mare was a wonderful place to stay! Very relaxing and our rooms were very clean, modern and classy. The staff was amazing throughout the week and the bar/restaurant had the most amazing food! They have an indoor gym facility which is free for guests to use, which I loved!

I have stayed there many times and found the staff very helpful. Buses pass by the hotel. There is a golf course on site. Food very good. It is on the Atlantic side of the island, so at certain times of the year you can watch the waves coming over the sea walls.
