This Hotel stands overlooking the sea and a Golf Course , it has some great views. The fact that the Course is owned by the Hotel need not worry you if Golf is not your scene. You cannot help but notice it ,but inside the Hotel you are in your own world. The Golf has a seperate Bar, if you want to join in. This is one of the best places to stay in Guernsey, although you should understand , this is a lovely slightly old fashioned Island full of charm ,not a sophisticated jet set destination. If you are looking for a relaxed stay, more on the side of informal, with recently refurbished rooms and friendly staff ,look no further. The one problem we had was when they had a Wedding, the staff were definitely doing stress and our normal good sevice suffered for a short time. The food can only be described as never less than good , with a Breakfast that has everything you want, You may well prefer something different if you are staying more than a couple of nights , not a problem there are some top class Restaurants in Guernsey with most no more than 15 minutes away by Car. We have a list of ones we like to visit if we are in the Island. You must visit Sark ,on a calm day, if you have the time, to see what it is like to live without a Car to say nothing of being 50 years behind the times.
