We were blown away with the level of service and the high quality of the facilities of this hotel. Having tried to book via the Internet I decided to phone to enquire as to whether there were any rooms......so glad that I did! I immediately got the impression that this was an establishment that treated guests as individuals. Our room... More

My mother and I had a QuidsIn voucher for a 'Dip and Diner' lunch today at La Grande Mare. When we arrived there was nowhere for us to change into our swimwear except a portable toilet by the pool or the sports centre - this being the other side of the complex and meant walking though the restaurant. No thought... More

A short break of B & B plus dinner. It was excellent with a large and very pleasant room, good food and excellent staff. The hotel is across the road from a very nice beach and has large gardens, golf course and good parking.

20 minutes flight from Jersey to a world of fluffy bathrobes, generous rooms and bathrooms and beach walks. Why go further afield. Food was great, staff excellent and everything very clean. Balcony as well.

Booked a weekend at LGM with my wife and I. Nice friendly staff, great rooms as ever with lovely lounge. As usual had a delicious dinner, breakfast and afternoon tea. Alcohol is reasonably priced. Tipping isn't expected, meal prices are reasonable and the early bird dinners seem very good value with no drop in quality of food unlike some places.... More
