We stayed overnight for my birthday and had a lovely time. Studio room had amazingly facilities. Made use of the complimentary health suite, had a impressive evening meal and breakfast was also included. All the staff were friendly and attentive. Will definitely go again.

We stayed at La Grande Mare for wife's birthday. Excellent Room, Evening Meal and Breakfast. Lounge Window could do with being double glazed, and bedroom windows need new seals. Staff very polite and helpful. As was Twinkle the Cat! We will stay there again.

We spent New Year's Eve at the Grande Mare and had a fabulous time. Excellent five course meal and disco. Really great evening. The room for the overnight stay was first class with a very good breakfast to round things off. The staff are really superb, nothing seems to be too much trouble. Thoroughly recommend the hotel.

Visited La Grande Mare on a blustery December morning for a weekend anniversary trip away. We had a Suite which also had the bonus of a well set our mini kitchen/diner. The room overlooked the golf course and swimming pool. Well worth the money, as clean and the heavy curtains shut out the daylight when required. It is in the... More

Great experience, from the very professional way we were welcomed by the receptionist, the facilities fully explained, the location on the coast. The evening meal was good excellent value, the accommodation was first class and spacious. Breakfast adequate with attentive but not overbearing service. Checkout was easy and professional.

Visited Guernsey with family. On our first day went for lunch it was pre arranged as part of our group live here. Three course lunch with seven choices of each course. For just £10. For this price you may expect small portions. You'd be wrong. Well worth a visit.

Just to say a first class hotel, rooms are very large and well appointed with everything you could need. Excellent restaurant and health club available and golf course! Room looked out over the golf course and the sea as well. Would happy stay there again anytime, and I live on the Island can I say more! Superb

Previous overnight stays and meals (including our wedding reception) have been fantastic. We have always loved the standard of service and friendliness of staff. Our tennerfest meal this time was lovely and great value for money, and the room facilities were great. Breakfast wasn't quite as good - we weren't offered a high chair/booster for our 18month old.
