We wanted to book a double room but the hotel was full and we were offered a self-catering apartment instead. Our book-in was easy and we easily found our ground floor apartment - views over the golf course, tennis courts and on the other side was the outdoor pool and hotel dining room. We were amazed with the space -... More

We had our wedding at La Grande Mare on Friday 29th August. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The food, the rooms and the setting were perfect and we couldn't have wished for anything more. Thank you La Grande Mare.

As part of a promotion for local islanders, we were encouraged to stay here again. We were initially worried that a second stay might not live up the excellence of the first, but how wrong we were! In quick summary, lovely room, excellent facilities, fantastic food with friendly and polite staff. Highly recommended. Mr and Mrs J McGinn.

The location is great for the beach but a little way from St. Peter port if you want city attractions. Cobo is nearby and Crabby Jacks restaurant is... More
