Travelled to Guernsey with my husband, son, daughter in law and two year old grandson. We paid £1200 for a week in a two bedroom apartment. Quite expensive, so I expected a luxury apartment. The main living area was very comfortable, with plenty of sofa's, a spacious dining area and a very well equipped kitchen. However what let the apartment... More

Stayed here for one night on the temptation break. Everything about the place was lovely, the staff, the food and room where all excellent. The price of drinks was very reasonable considering its a hotel. The golf course attached to the hotel also looked in excellent condition. We are looking at booking again later in the year.
