Superb hotel. Did exactly what they said in the brochure and more.
Staff very helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble.
Hotel is centrally situated on the island so you might have difficulties without transport. Local buses are good, but not always timed to convenience. Buses are also very cheap, any journey no matter what the length, £1.

Food at hotel amazing, we had carvery most nights and came back with more weight than when we arrived.

Room was very very good although having said that, we did book the Conservatory suite superior room on the ground floor so cannot comment on the standard room. Its worth paying the extra for this room if you can.

Downsides;
Not too much to complain about, just little niggles. The gardens were beautiful but looked as though a little tlc would not go amiss. (The grass was quite long and had obviously not been cut recently.) They needed a general tidy up. Thats all really

Do watch out for the house cat! He is very very friendly and if you have a ground floor room, you might easily shut him in, but he really is a lovely friendly chap

We would thoroughly reccomend this hotel and will be returning

Room Tip: Conservatory Suite is worth paying the extra

Just returned from this homely country hotel with really delightful food, set in lovely well kept gardens with an outdoor swimming pool, cleverly surrounded on three sides by a hedge to keep the wind out. All the staff including the cleaners and dining room staff were most polite and friendly. The reception staff were amazingly helpful considering it was a very busy hotel although we dd find one member of the reception staff let the side down on occasions with her manner! We have now been three times to this hotel and will definitely be back, overall a gem of a hotel !

A fabulous hotel set in beautiful grounds. Welcoming and friendly staff throughout hotel. Food is varied and very well cooked. Nice to have a choice of Carvery and A La Carte menu.
Plenty of parking space. Outdoor pool area looked lovely for the summer months, with ample chairs and changing area.
Hotel spotlessly cleaned and maintained throughout

Room Tip: Choose a room on first floor at back of hotel, as road at front is quite noisy [although windows are...

I have just come back from staying 6 days at Le Friquet to catch up with old friends. Although we booked just B & B we had friends around for 2 dinners and the food was consistantly excellent. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the staff were happy, efficient and friendly. If you have a car there is ample parking, if not the bus stops outside. If I criticized any thing I would be nitpicking.

Room Tip: The stairs are on the steep side if like me you are past your prime and there is no lift.

This is a fantastic hotel, the food is great, the staff are brilliant and the pool area and gardens are an absolute touch of paradise, beautiful! My wife and I had a 1 night stay here and wish we could have stayed longer, it really is a great hotel. The carvery is without doubt the best we have ever had, the quality of the food is second to none! Our room was clean, modern and spacious and had a lovely bathroom. Breakfast was also very good! Big thumbs up from us!
