“Four night stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Party of four of us stayed last week, in two superior rooms. The rooms were spacious, superbly decorated to a high class, beds as comfortable as you could wish for and truely King size. Decor throughtout the hotel was to a high standard and can be described as quirky. Service and staff were top notch, while not always a fan of dining in a hotel, the menu and food were superb.Looking forward to staying here again.

My wife and I stayed at the Duke of Richmond over the Easter weekend on a getaway from London. We booked transport with the hotel directly which I would highly recommend anyone doing, it is very convenient and the best way to get an introduction to Guernsey on the way. The arrival was fantastic warm friendly and made us feel like old friends returning. We dined in the hotel on both night and I can assure you it is a fantastic experience not to be missed, Guernsey itself is a lovely island with some great walks and local shops to explore. The coastline is very rugged and the hotel Manager Lukas gave us a great recommendation for a fantastic walk and a great little hidden pub right on the coast. The room was amazing too filled with special Easter goodies as well, the view from the balcony was of the island which was brilliant to wake up to every morning

Do yourself a favour and have a drink in the bar too, it is quaint and beautifully decorated with an amazing cocktail and wine list, something that is not found everywhere on the island.

We will definitely be back, it was an amazing and relaxing experience which we both cant wait to repeat.

Room Tip: Book a room with a balcony its brillian to enjoy a coffee to start your day

I would like to thank you for finding the time to share your experience at The Duke of Richmond Hotel over Easter with other travellers. I was delighted to read that you received a very warm welcome from our team, which was a great introduction to a relaxing and enjoyable break in our beautiful island. I was delighted to share with my team that you felt comfortable in your Sea-view balcony room; enjoyed dining in The Leopard Restaurant and were impressed with the cocktails and wine available in the bar.

We hope we will have another opportunity of welcoming you back to The Duke of Richmond Hotel next time you decide to escape the city!

Went last Saturday with my daughter and grand-daughter for afternoon tea. It's been a long time since I've visited the hotel and what a lovely place.
Once seated in the airy and bright conservatory, we had ample time to choose which tea to order and the choice of teas (for a coffee drinker) was interesting. I choose the spiced apple, the others choose earl grey and fruity berry. It was a bonus to find that the teas were leaf and not any bagged varieties in sight! The waiter who brought the food explained what the sandwiches were and the nice selection of cakes plus scones, jam and clotted cream,. A very pleasant and relaxing afternoon, with perfect company. The staff were very attentive and friendly and the overall service was excellent.
I would definitely recommend a visit for the experience.

My wife and I recently stayed for one week at The Duke of Richmond hotel.
The room that had been allocated to us was not really suitable for a stay of 7 days and, to be fair, the front of house manager, Jo, sorted things out very quickly and we moved to a bigger room.
Overall it is an excellent hotel with good, efficient and friendly staff. Breakfast was excellent and the several dinners that we had during our stay were also very good.

Room Tip: The hotel is quite an old building and therefore rooms do vary in size. Prior to making a booking, s...

Stayed here on a tour of the Channel Islands in May. Hotel is beautifully appointed, service is attentive and personal and staff very obliging. Any request was dealt with effortlessly and efficiently. Being a part of the Red Carnation Group of hotels it fulfilled their high standards perfectly. Service and food in the restaurant and bar are great and the breakfasts were extensive and efficiently served. The walk from St Peter Port to the hotel up the hill through gardens offers lovely views over the harbour. We really enjoyed our stay.

Great place to stay for a long weekend! Quirky, and the little touches like the jelly beans and homemade ice tea really make it stand out. Staff were helpful and attentive and the breakfast was lovely. We'll be back

Great service. Funky boutique hotel. Can't quite figure out what the decor is Lots of glass and chrome with some Leopard theme though out with the odd full coat of armor thrown in. Upgrade to the junior suites well worth the extra cost. Can't think of anything you would for want for within this price range. 3rd stay and will definatley be back.

It's a bit of a hike into town. great going as it's all down hill so just 10 minutes but prepared for some exercise to the climb back up. May not be good for those that are less energetic. Only reason I give it 4 stars vs 5.
