Booked for Sunday lunch. Lovely restaurant in stunning surroundings,sadly the food and service is sadly lacking. Main course arrived followed approx 10 mins later by the vegetables. 1 person in the party ordered Apple crumble,which was only partly warm,so it was sent back,also,they must have the smallest ice cream scoop known to man,either that or they use a teaspoon.!!.

Fantastic afternoon tea today. Sandwiches were plentiful, fresh and very tasty. Cakes were traditional but with a pretty twist and the scones large and moreish! Of course having Guernsey cream helps! Without being intrusive the lady looking after us made sure our coffee/tea pots were kept topped up and could not have been more helpful. The setting of this hotel... More

New decor in Ocean is very well done, loving the sea / beach theme. A la carte menu quite limited (had tried to book for the Rock Garden upstairs but it was full) Found a terrace menu so asked if we could order from it - this option had not been offered. Service was very good, staff polite and attentive.... More

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
