We have just enjoyed an excellent week at La Grande Mare. We had stayed there on a previous occasion, and returned happily for 7 nights to celebrate a family wedding. The staff were all very helpful and pleasant, and the wedding reception was superbly managed, with beautiful table settings, excellent food, and attentive staff. Our ground floor room was comfortable,... More

The hotel and timeshare is ideally suited for getting about. There is a good bus service, but a car is advisable. You can walk to St peterport in about one hour. Also there is a golf course and first class restaurant.

We purchased a Quids-in deal which included Afternoon tea, Evening Meal and Bed and Breakfast...instead of a room, we had a suite, which was fantastic! The food, staff and accommodation were superb, will definitely be returning!

had a great 24 hours at the hotel. Lovely spacious room with tasteful decor and comfortable bed and pillows. Delicious afternoon tea followed by a true gourmet dining experience. Good night's sleep and all you could wish for for breakfast. Friendly helpful staff and very good service. Highly recommended.

It had everything you could want in the kitchen, with a few useful extras such as washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets. The bathroom had a tub with shower over, with good waterpressure. Top quality toiletries and bathrobes were... More

Went for a surprise party with 48 people in our group. Accommodation is 5 star and you couldn't fault the cleanliness and quality of the rooms. The carvery meal was put out promptly but the children's meals were served 10 - 20 minutes after the adults serve-your-self meal was put out. The breakfast service was very slow with some servers...
