I have rated this as average as the website said this attraction was open from 10am onwards. On arrival it was closed, the car park was knee high in mud, and the signage was covered in green mould. There was a sign outside saying open Thursdays and Sundays 3-4 . Not really an attraction !

In terms of interesting things to look at there isn't much - but with a bit of imagination you really get a feel for the place. Take a thick coat as even on warm days it is into single figures - it gives you the chills (quite literally!).

The underground hospital is a fascinating place to see as it was built during the German occupation. It has a reputation of being haunted. It's an amazing place being built under the land and consists of numerous tunnels and wards, kitchens etc. It is quite a damp place to visit in colder months but it's good to see it in... More

Really interesting look back on a dark time in history. A very strange place and be careful not to get locked in!!!

This is truly a must see whilst on the island. It gives a much greater understanding of the island during the war years and is fabulously unrestored, damp and cold. Don't let my last comments put you off though as unlike so many other 'museums ' this makes the experience all the more real to how it would have been.... More

After several attempts to visit here we eventually visited on a Thursday. It only being opened 2.00 til 3.00 on Thursday and Sunday through November. It offers an extra insight into the German occupation but essentially it is a huge network of massive tunnels in which there were wards and operating theatres, kitchens and also munition stores. There are some... More

the tunnels are full to the brim with displays and information, giving full details of what it was like for the channel islanders in the war, there is a lot of individual accounts of what went on in those years, hopefully never to return

We took a trip out to see the underground hospital and the little chapel which is close by (all off route 71) and I think it is worth the visit even just to appreciate the sheer size and scale of the tunneling that was undertaken. It's a pretty errie place and there isn't a great deal in terms of 'artefacts'... More

Fascinating insight to a period we were privileged to miss. The hospital is well preserved and evocative of an era that was pretty grim in Guernsey. I had seen it before years and years ago but teenage son had not. Both enjoyed the experience although son was " bunkered" out by the time he left Guernsey with various German, royalist... More

Earlier reviews stated that much could be done to expand the content of the hospital but we thought quite the opposite. The very fact that it has been left in a virtually authentic condition made the whole experience more meaningful to us. It was very easy to imagine the horrific conditions the slave workforce were made to work in and... More
