I stayed at the Hotel Du Phare this summer, with my husband and 2 children, the night before catching the early ferry back to Portsmouth. We were greeted by extremely friendly staff on our arrival. We had a family room with 2 double beds, whic was clean and spacious. The shower was excellent, which is always important, and the beds very comfy! We ate in the hotel brasserie for dinner, where again, we were served by lovely staff. The menu was fairly standard, but the food was good and perfect for what we wanted.
All in all, this hotel is perfect for the ferry port, or indeed if you are looking for an extremely good value accommodation to base yourself in when visiting this part of the coast. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the hotel was clean and served excellent food. I would thoroughly recommend!!!
