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.

After a recent stay at La Fregate Hotel, the venue for my next Guernsey staycation was La Grand Mare. For this I used a Quidsin deal which offered bed, breakfast, 3 course evening meal as well as afternoon tea for two people for £130. We also paid an additional £50 to upgrade our room to a suite. Arriving at 5.30pm... More

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
