We spent three nights in this charming place just a short walk away from a beautiful cliff walk. The food was excellent (!) and the staff was helpful. It was cool enough that we didn't try the swimming pool but we enjoyed walks and St Peter Port (Guernsey Tapestry is wonderful). Glad we chose to stay in this part of... More

A memorable hotel offering excellent service, comfortable rooms and wonderful food. Unfortunately our stay being work orientated limited our dining experience at the hotel but the daily breakfast was substantial and cooked to perfection. All the staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating from the colourful and knowledgeable receptionists to the highly professional restaurant staff. Thanks to all for making our... More

Once at dinner, when a course was being cleared, a tiny scrap of paper fell on my sleeve. This is the only negative thing I can report about our stay at La Barbarie; all else was excellent. The hotel was a short taxi ride from the airport. We were immediately impressed by the quality of the welcome. It was friendly... More

Fantastic hotel with excellent food and staff. Set in an idyllic setting. A little of the beaten track, however there is a regular bus service from just outside the hotel direct to Saint Peter Port, where buses can be caught to any location on the island. We can honestly say that our stay confirmed that it is top of our... More

Excellent hotel with a swimming pool that, importantly, is heated. Warm, welcoming staff, who upgraded us. It was my husband's birthday and they sent a card to the room, which was well-appointed, immaculately clean, super-comfy bed, and all completely renovated and updated. The room also had air-conditioning, which was much appreciated. The bathroom had a separate deep bath and walk-in... More

As a regular annual visitor to the island and a regular guest at La Barberie I would not say that room 41 is a superior room externally.
