“A lovely atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

A a local person to Guernsey I haven't had the need to stay at this hotel, but I do visit the restaurant for a bar meal occasionally. This hotel has a good reputation & is popular with the locals for their food. It is an old farmhouse & the atmosphere is lovely & cosy - especially in the winter when the log fire is roaring. On my recent visit the food was of their usual delicious high standard & the whole group enjoyed their meal thoroughly. I would say that this time the portion sizes were a bit on the small size which hasn't been the case before. So they just need to ensure this isn't a new trend (maybe I was just particularly hungry!)

The staff were all very pleasant, helpful & friendly which added to our lovely evening. A good choice for a casual bar meal.

Stayed for a night post meal, for a nice treat and it was definately a great night! Great room, nice decor, clean and would recommend without a doubt. Food good and cosy bar for post meal drink. Location close to beach and in country lanes with gorgeous walks. Gardens nice too, although outdoor pool not good for spring time weather!

Lovely place to stay after a hard day walking and would love to have stayed longer than the one night booked. Service great and food fantastic. The potato and spinach soup was the best. Route 5 bus stops outside.

Great stay in Fleur du Jardin. Lovely warm comfortable bedroom. Staff very friendly and helpful. Good breakfast and plenty of it. There was also a good choice of food from evening menu. Roaring fire in dining room made it very cosy. Would definitely recommend.

Just had sunday lunch there, usually very good, but the service was slow and the food was average. The potatoes had obviously be reheated and were like cardboard. It was a shame as usually the fleur is good.

My family and I, ten of us in all, went to the Fleur for an overnight stay including dinner on Saturday night. The staff are so lovely, friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The food was extremely tasty and nobody went hungry as tho rations were of a good size. Our room was very comfortable clean and spacious, complete with a shower and bath. There was plenty of space for possessions and the bed very comfy. The hotel is set in the countryside and has lovely roaring open fires. It is an old farmhouse, so has plenty of character, which has a nice olde world feel about it. All in all a brilliant weekend.

A bit of a muddle to find in the dark from the airport, but that is living on a small island....Everyone knows where they are! However a small island means that eventually you will find the place. This makes the arrival even better. Cosy room upstairs, roaring fire downstairs, lovely staff, good wine and tasty food.Followed by a snug seat in the bar to watch the go and flow of the place.Bliss!
