The staff here in 2014 are much friendlier and more professional than in previous years but the reviews are accurate - it's a little hit and miss. Breakfast was always spot on apart from the coffee. A fresh caffetiere would be preferable than the coffee served. Dinners were very mixed - the lobster seafood cocktail was delicious as was chilli... More

Don't bother ...... Burnt scallop starters, 20 min wait for main which has no veg, roast potatoes were old and hard. Crust on salmon was very salty. No cutlery or bread on table and when asked if everything was ok by waitress, she did not know how to deal with answer. Won't be back again in a hurry.

Scollops over cooked and very small portion. Main course plates not cleaned. Service shockingly bad. No cutlery. Roasted potatoes cooked yesterday. Hard and reheated. No vegetables. Not even got to pudding yet!!!!

Stopped for lunch. Pleasantly surprised. Idyllic setting on terrace overlooking rear garden and the sea. Good quality food. Excellent service. Unhurried. Good value for money.

We have stayed at the Hotel on two different occasions and have had beautiful rooms and enjoyed first class service from the staff. However it must be said that the restaurant is not on the same level most of the time. We have experienced similar eccentricities in the restaurant to those mentioned in some of the reviews. It seems to... More

I had been bought a voucher for afternoon tea for two at the Ocean restaurant in the Fermain Valley Hotel for my birthday and went along last weekend to sample the delights. The setting is almost without fault, nestling just above Fermain Bay on the south east coast of Guernsey, views down to the clear blue sea of the bay... More

Whilst the menu was simple the food was very good, service was good too, French fries were a little too salty, but then they do sell beer too!

We had something to celebrate and as the Fermain Valley's new Ocean Restaurant was within staggering distance, and it had been advertised quite extensively recently, we decided to give it a try. The food was perfect. The service from the restaurant staff was friendly and efficient save for a few minor niggles which a bit of training would easily remedy... More

Dined in Ocean the hotel's seafood restaurant - really liked the décor - well done designer. The staff were mostly delightful French students but their supervisor was also very pleasant. The food was fine not amazing, and there was a small problem with the desert, but the young man dealt with it very well.

The Ocean restaurant's decor is fantastic and gives a wonderful ambience. Menu is limited but has a interesting variety. Food was lovely and well presented. Scallops and lobster dishes were outstanding. The staff were very helpful but service was a little slow. Would certainly come back again.
