We had first seen this hotel many years ago when it was first built and were very impressed then, when La Grande Mare was a timeshare complex. It isn't any longer obviously. We haven't been to Guernsey for a long time and thought we'd stop by and see if we could get a bite to eat for Sunday lunch and... More

We booked a long weekend through Secret escapes for three nights. On arrival the very nice receptionist had no record of our booking from secret escapes but it was sorted immediately. We were upgraded to a lovely studio room with a huge bed, big bathroom, seating area and doors out to a balcony overlooking the golf course and pool. There... More

Celebrated my wife's 60th birthday with family and friends. Had the set carvery menu which provided a good selection of food. The food was absolutely superb and the overall standard of service absolutely faultless. Have stayed overnight at the hotel in the past and experienced the same standards of excellence. We cannot praise the staff to highly.

Part of a special package that included car ferry from Portsmouth and two nights in this 4 star hotel with a fitness centre and indoor pool, we turned up very late in one of the windiest and wettest nights of a very wet and windy winter to a warm welcome. La Grande Mare manages to keep its occupancy rates high,... More

Great one night treat at La Grande Mare. Room was excellent - it was a good size, had good facilities and was quiet. Dinner was of high quality, a good variety of options and an interesting wine menu. Service was excellent - many thanks to Sheev and his team who looked after us well throughout our short stay.

What could be better for Valentines? Afternoon tea by a fire, beautiful meal, lovely overnight stay in a suite and large breakfast mmmmmmm. Use of the health suite too, so you feel a hundred dollars, and free use of the towels.

Wonderful suite with sea views and superb food. Head waiter and staff could not be more helpful or friendly. Cuisine was exceptionally good. Suite included 4 poster bed! Price for the stay was very reasonable.

I spent an enjoyable couple of days here. It is in an excellent location with just a short walk to the seafront. For sporty types there is a golf course attached to the hotel and a well equipped gym, decent sized pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi. I was there on business so no time for golf (sadly) but I...
