I found La Barbarie from the web under 'walking breaks in Guernsey'. The location, 10mins from the airport and 30mins by bus from the centre of St Peter Port, was away from the town hustle and close to the beautiful south coast. The hotel facilities were excellent and the restaurant food was exceptional. The staff were very attentive and helpful.... More

All the reviews and comments we had read before arriving proved to be true! Professionalism combined with courteous friendliness. Immaculate cleanliness- including the swimming pool. We had a first floor superior room, with a superb bathroom. Excellent breakfast and imaginative menus for dinner- bravo chef! We can't wait to return.

We stayed for 7 nights recently at La Barbarie. We have been coming here for many years but it still draws us back. The rooms are well thought out, spacious and spotlessly clean. The meals in the restaurant are to die for, still the same great chef. The staff are terrific, never intrusive but always friendly. There is no other... More

What a gem. Old fashioned customer service values brought right up to date. From the minute we arrived we were made to feel welcome and were personally shown to our room. The hotel is lovely with flowers everywhere and we even had some in our room. The staff were so professional, and made sure we were always acknowledged when we... More

Quite simply a lovely place to stay. The staff work hard, but are always friendly, helpful and efficient. There is plenty of parking. We had a very comfortable 4 night stay and as it was such beautiful weather we were able to take advantage of the pool, which was immaculately clean and the poolside and garden tables kept clean and...

My wife and I have just returned from a weeks holiday. We booked our own flights and benefitted from two small airports and 30 minute check ins. Our first visit but probably not our last.

Pretty hotel with very comfortable rooms, delightful friendly staff and an excellent restaurant. Nothing is too much trouble. Dated decor in some bedrooms so if this is a problem ask for a refurbished one. We slept with windows wide open and no problem with noise. We had room overlooking garden and pool. Once all rooms are upgraded, the rating would... More
