The hotel is situated approximately half way between the airport and St Peter Port.
Access to the hotel is down a steep, but short road, with the Hotel's 'Venue' extension at the top of that road.
The hotel was refurbished in 2006 and the result is a high quality location for quiet holidays.
The food is excellent, with more than sufficient choice off of two menus for each sitting. If you aren't on full board, the prices are reasonable, with a two course meal available for £19 pp at the time of posting. Bar prices are equally reasonable, and it was noticeable that Guernsey locals used the restaurants and facilities, which I've always taken to be an implicit recommendation!
The platinum rooms are large, very well appointed and extremely comfortable, but lack a balcony - but the rooms more than make up for the lack! The gold rooms come with a balcony, but are smaller, although just as well appointed, as are the silver rooms, which are almost identical to the gold rooms, but lack a balcony.
All the staff were extremely efficient and friendly.
The manager was considerate and friendly, giving you the impression that nothing was too much trouble .. in fact, on one day when the hotel's shuttle bus was not available, the manager himself turned out in full chauffeurs uniform to drive myself and my partner to catch the boat to Sark for a day out!
If you are disabled or have difficulty walking, then I would recommend you ask for a room in the main building, as the walk to and from the 'Venue' extension at the top of the hill is quite steep, although it passes through a well maintained and attractive garden.
The nearest beach is a 10 minute walk down a quite steep hill, but the reward is a breathtaking, quiet little bay facing towards Herm Island, with a little beach-side cafe that serves reasonable food. A cliff-top path leads from the bay into St Peter Port (about a 40 minute walk), through one of the local attractions, Bluebell Wood.
