“Hidden Sark gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2011

I have stayed at the Sablonnerie a few times and am pleased to say I still return again and again. The owners are delightful; a local family, who are keen to please and serve their guests in every way. I have stayed in a few rooms and they do vary quite a lot, so its best to ring and check where your rooms is and the facilities it has, and that they suit your needs. The honeymoon suite is gorgeous - a room on its own in the garden with an enormous bed and great sitting area. The lunches in the summer are fabulous - you sit outside in the beautiful garden and eat lobster, and drink wine all afternoon - what could be better. If you go for dinner, watch out for the sloe gin kicking in on the cycle ride home, but if that's all there is to complain about, then I think its pretty good. Its true the hotel doesn't have the mod cons that a lot of other similar priced hotels might, but it more than makes up for it in charm, beauty and friendliness.

I stayed at La Sablonnerie in mid September and had one one of the most peaceful and relaxing holidays I have ever had. A beautiful setting. Wonderful food, and the company of regular visitors who have been returning over many years. I hope to do the same. By chance I met Elizabeth Perree on arrival at the harbour and she discovered I had just stayed in a large hotel with a small room on Alderney. She she offered me the cottage at no extra cost so I could stretch! An example of the wonderful way they treat their guests. A lovely place to stay.

Imagine a hotel that is more like a small village of tidy, white cottages within a beautiful garden. A garden with colourful flowers and quiet corners to retreat. Imagine there is no tourbus or taxis or cars but the carriage driver Tina and her horse George who take you there or show you this wonderfull island. Imagine there is no reception desk were you have to fill out forms just to get an electronic keycard but Phillip and Nigel who welcomes you like an old friend. Imagine the best food with fish and lobster right out of the clear turquoise ocean around Sark or an unbelievable tender shank of lamb or what ever your heart or stomach desires. Imagine there is no "hotel manager" but Elisabeth who personally takes care of your wellbeing and when i told her that i wanted to make pictures of the sunrise ... she was there to wake me up and show me the sun coming up the quiet pasture behind our cottage.
Imagine all that and you have the LaSablonnerie at Sark. Elizabeth Perree and her team really created a paradise on this hidden corner of the world. It's clean, it's tidy, the staff is warmhearted and friendly, the food is just excellent and if i were a professional hotel or restaurant tester i would award this place more stars then there are in the nightsky of sark.
WE LOVE THIS PLACE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have just returned from our third visit to this hotel and once again found the food and service to be first class. We were very well looked after and nothing was too much trouble. A very quiet and relaxing week on a lovely island. We hope to return in early May to see the spring flowers.

We had an overnight stay at La Soblonnerie, and the food was amazing, the staff were very friendly and we were amazed to return from dinner and find hottie tucked into our beds as it was a chilly night!

La Sablonnerie really is getting away from it all as one crosses La Coupee on foot (H and S!) behind the immaculate horse and carriage, leaving the trippers behind in the village and clopping through the country lanes with views across the sea to a true garden hotel. Most efficiently our cases brought by brother Peter in his tractor were already in our room.

First time on Sark, we had found it was the Sheep Races weekend (which actually turned out to be great fun) but a great relief to be staying at quirky, quiet and very independently run by Elizabeth, La Sablonnerie. Rather small room outside (but we were last minute guests) but quiet and perfectly adequate in good weather. Fruit and flowers in the room and welcome coffee tray first thing, and a slug of sloe gin last thing after an excellent dinner (made from the sloe bushes on the farm).

We really appreciated the five star professionalism of all the staff with Nigel and the chef producing good reasonable wines and delicous food. We loved eating outside on a balmy evening, and returning from stunning walks to the pretty gardens to lunch or drinks there or in the neighbouring Tea Garden (also owned by the Perrees).

Apart from the quiet comfort of the hotel on Little Sark and scenery, we loved visiting the glorious walled garden of La Seineurie and the carriage rides efficiently organised by Elizabeth. We just hope that old Sark families like the Perrees continue to give such pleasure to visitors, and resist the wholesale attempts at acquisition by The Brothers that could turn Sark into any other resort island.

Room Tip: Ask for a good sized room or the cottage

We stayed four nights with Elisabeth and her staff and have nowhere ever felt so welcome !! They did everything to make us feel like king and queen and we enjoyed the way they did that. La Sablonnerie is a lovely small hotel on a fabulous island with excellent food. The next time on Sark will certainly be in this hotel.
