We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. Our superior room with balcony had been recently refitted and was exceptionally clean and spacious. Staff were very helpful and always smiling. We ate most nights at the restaurant which was good value for a delicious meal. In particular the vegetarian food was excellent. We did not use the pool but it... More

Stayed at this lovely hotel in St Martins as part of our island tour. Loved it - quaint, cosy and welcoming. What a great set of staff led by mine host Andy Coleman with the lovely Ivo and Ravis delivering a warm and genuine welcome. Our room was superb, spotlessly clean and our dinner was excellent. Moules marinere, avocado, prawn... More

I have to concur with many reviewers on here that La Barbarie is just a wonderful place to stay and nothing too much trouble for the staff.

We recently spent a lovely few days at this very good hotel. It is very well run - Ivo and his team did a wonderful job in the restaurant and the food was really good.

Lovely, quiet location in the leafy parish of St Martins with a sub tropical flavour to the garden. You have to accept that things are smaller and quieter in here! The whole place ran like a well oiled machine, with pleasant and faultless service from reception to food and drink, room service and garden maintenance. The owner kept a visible... More

La Barbarie was the perfect base for our 3 night family trip of 9 persons to Guernsey. Adjoining rooms for the family of four and other rooms were allocated on the same floor. The 4 for the room is only that the bed was a little firm. All staff were so friendly and service was attentive and calm. The food... More
