We have been on day trips to Herm many times over the last 15 years, but this was the first time we have stayed. We enjoy camping, so chose a pre-erected tent on Seagull Campsite. Our tent was good quality and spacious for 3 of us. Airbeds were comfortable. Cooking equipment limited but adequate. Our pitch was perfect for us, but the tents on the main field appeared quite close together. On our first weekend there was a large group with a themed party. After they left on the Sunday it was quiet for a few days until a large school party arrived from Wednesday until Friday. We never had to wait for toilets or showers, however if the site was full, suspect facilities may be inadequate for the number of pitches available.
We ate sandwiches from the beach kiosks and meals at the Mermaid and White House Hotel which were all good.
One day we had breakfast at the Ship Inn. There was a poor selection especially for our daughter who is vegetarian. After negotiation she was served 1 slice of toast with baked beans and we had a full English which was only luke warm. We ate is as were about to catch the Trident to spend the day in Guernsey. We did complain but with no response. Consequently we did not eat there again.
It is worth noting the shop did not stock any fresh fruit,vegetables or croissants and all bread is frozen. There was also no hedge veg available.
The main reasons for holidaying in Herm are the unspoilt beaches and views which are superb.
