“Wonderful hosts, beautiful house, perfect stay”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

David & Jane were wonderful hosts, and made us all feel very welcome. The house is stunning, and adds a real authenticity to your stay on Guernsey. It is full of character, and decorated to the style of the grand old lady that she is. David and Jane were wonderful hosts, who gave us lots of advice about where to go & what to see. The rooms were wonderful, the beds super comfortable & the food delicious. They even went as far as ferrying fellow guests around on airport runs, etc as well as providing us drinks & wine during the afternoon & evening. There is a beautiful garden & a jacuzzi plunge pool to top it off. Myself, my partner & in laws had a fantastic time & would return in a heart beat, thank you David & Jane.

This was our second visit to this elegant Georgian house hotel and the experience just gets better. From the moment of arrival. Jane and David are the perfect hosts. The house itself is wonderful, full of character, ambience and charm. Our room was spacious, comfortable and welcoming and reflects the elegance of the rest of the house. David's breakfasts are so good they would not be out of place in the final of Masterchef. Guests are encouraged to use the house, beautiful gardens and pool (so so warm) as though it were your own and nothing was too much trouble for this wonderful couple. We would have no hesitation in recommending La Roche to anyone planning a restful, relaxing and happy holiday and can not wait to return.

Room Tip: All rooms are of excellent quality

From the moment I arrived as a solo traveller I was made to feel very comfortable and secure by Jane and David. They were helpful in so many ways (picked me up from airport, dropped me in town in the mornings, gave me good bus advice, invited me to join them in the evenings). The friendly atmosphere that they created continued as all guests were seated around a large table for a wonderful breakfast, covering all tastes.
My twin room was clean, bright and comfortable with fresh flowers (nice detail) and the toilet and shower rooms (shared between 2 rooms) were both spotlessly clean.
Guests were welcome to sit on the patio looking out over the lovely garden.
Jane and David were very kind in keeping me informed, on the day of my departure, about the weather conditions at the airport and whether flights were going out (due to a low mist). They reassured me that my room was still available should my flight be postponed. I would have no hesitation in recommending this guest house to anyone travelling alone.

We were given a warm welcome by Jane and David and they were most attentive throughout our 2-night stay. The handsome house, built in 1837, is full of pictures and artefacts with spacious rooms and a natural garden with a distant sea view. Drinks were on the house and we enjoyed use of the warm plunge pool outside (with built-in Jacuzzi). There was also a cinema in the basement, although we didn't have time to use that. Breakfast was very plentiful with a large and interesting variety of home-made jams. We had a hire car but David and Jane were very helpful to those staying without a car and offered to drive guests to St Peter Port.
The historic Castel church is next door with its distinctive spire lit up at night. From La Roche it is just a few minutes drive to the stunning beaches at Vazon Bay and Cobo Bay, with St Peter Port ten minutes drive the other direction. The beautiful Little Chapel made of seashells is also nearby.
Our hosts were charming and most informative about the history of the island and very helpful as to how best to make use of one's time. We felt at home staying there and recommend La Roche.

My Mum and I stayed at La Roche for six days in June. Jane and David were unbelievably generous hosts and honestly couldn't have made us feel more welcome. The house is very comfortable and interesting and the breakfasts something to behold. We hired a car for a few days and I am glad we did as our experience of the buses wasn't great, also the walk up the hill from the bus stop to the house was slightly challenging for my Mum. All in all we had a thoroughly enjoyable time and we were both sorry to leave.

We needed a relaxing comfortable place to stay to get away from stresses at home and to visit friends on the Island. La Roche provided that & more. Jane & David are wonderful hosts and will offer as much or as little attention as you require. Their knowledge is extensive and will share as much as they can with you if that is what you would like. The Guest House is beautiful and very tasteful, full of interesting furniture, books etc. We stayed in the Rose Room and it really was so very comfortable. La Roche is situated right in the middle of the island which is great. We didn't get to see the pool but if the rest is anything to go by we're sure it's wonderful.....we will use it next time. We really couldn't fault La Roche or its owners. Thank you Jane & David, it was everything we needed.

We stayed with Jane and David for two nights in May 2013. The house is beautiful- grand but very colourful and homely, packed with interesting bits and pieces on the walls to look at while we munched our way through a delicious breakfast. Our room (the Cream Room) was lovely and light, beautifully decorated, very quiet, and shared a bathroom with one other room. The bathroom is a dream come true with excellent hot powerful shower.

Our hosts were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble for them. As we didn't have a car they kindly picked us up from the ferry port and took us back into town a few hours later so that we could have dinner with friends, and the following day dropped us off at the wedding. I spent one beautifully sunny morning in the swimming pool (small but perfectly formed) and when I got out I was immediately offered a beer in the garden- perfect. Thank you Jane and David for an excellent weekend!
