“fantastic place”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Just returned from one week break at this hotel in one of their apartments. it was perfect everything you needed to hand. The weather was very cold due to guernsey having thier worst snow for 30 years. The apartment was lovely and warm, and the gardens looked lovely covered in snow. We would recommend this hotel and their apartments to anyone.

Booked a three day fly drive package and was not disappointed. Everything as advertised - huge choice of breakfast, you don't need to eat again till dinner. The best thing about the hotel is the staff, nothing was too much trouble and eager to please. We had the carvery for our first meal - delicious, excellent quality and choice and great value for money. Would recommend to anyone

Food of high standard, staff friendly, hotel clean. Not sure about management of hotel because when we stayed in October 2012 it was not full, me, my husband and 5 yr old son were given a room right at the very top of the hotel in the attic, my son's bed was under a low hanging eave of the roof so that he couldnt have free movement without hitting his head! another person we knew to be staying at hotel alone was given a huge suite of rooms, yet this person's room was booked for her by our club with the hotel management. We were very squashed up here for our week-end in Guernsey! However we were determined to enjoy the island and see the sights. Luckily we had hired a car as this hotel is in the countryside away from the main resort and beaches. We did not book this hotel and neither did the single person we knew staying there, it was booked for us by a club that I was officiating at, and when I gingerly enquired why my room was so small I was told that the club had to make savings and that this hotel does a very good deal. Location for us with a small child not great, but with a car we made the most of it. Its more of an adults hotel. Despite this we found the staff to be very genial and kind to our little boy and we enjoyed the food and relaxed atmosphere. Cant praise the food enough it was really excellent, as was the service. We wouldnt stay here again because of the location and that it does not cater for children, and because we were unsure of the room lottery! but it has an excellent restaurant that we would go to again, with plenty of parking at rear of hotel.

Room Tip: rooms at the rear of the hotel face the garden. rooms at the front of hotel face the busy main road...

Dear Vanessashihtzu, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of your stay here in October last year. Your kind commments about our Food, service, atmosphere and cleanliness are much appreciated. You were booked by the organiser of the Club on a Tennerfest Special Offer break and in order to accommodate your group we offered to put a full sized adult single bed in your room for your five year old son. I am sorry that you were unahppy with this arrangement and can assure you it was a one off. Its true that we are in the Guernsey Countryside, the Beaches are three minutes by Car and the main town of St Peter Port around ten minutes. Should you return to Guernsey again do contact me and I will ensure you have a room that suits your needs. Thank you.

Another three night stay at Le Friquet-very comfortable rooms and an excellent restaurant blessed with a truly fine chef. All 27 of us (!!) were made to feel very welcome; the carvery was an enormous success with the boys and the staff were, as always, quite superb. For us it was an ideal base for our school hockey tour but additionally for sightseeing between matches. Having also stayed here in the past with my wife, I couldn't recommend Le Friquet more highly

We could not have wished for a more friendly, efficient and comfortable hotel for a winter break in Guernsey. We took advantage of the hotel's offer of 3 nights for the price of 4. Although booked for B&B only, a marvellous seafood platter dinner was included in the deal. We could have opted for a 3-course dinner instead but were glad we went for the platter which was huge and delicious.
Without exception, the staff were excellent, making us feel at home without being overbearing. We were upgraded to a 'Superior Room' at no extra charge. It was clean, well equipped, warm and comfortable. The free, fast wi-fi broadband connection was much appreciated.
A car is almost essential; we took our own but would have hired one if we had visited by air. One note of caution: the exit from the hotel by car is 'blind' in both directions. There are mirrors on the far side of the road, but care is needed!
We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be in the countryside away from the town or beaches.

This hotel should be renowned for its really excellent staff and good food. The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful, nothing was ever too much trouble. Rooms were lovely and very comfortable and well equipped. Will want to stay again when we are back in Guernsey.

Room Tip: had rm 9 which overlooked the lovely garden which had an italianate fountain in it.

Le friquet hotel is in a quiet area of Guernsey. You are met by very warm reception staff who are exceedingly helpful. All rooms have all your needs met, coffee making facilites, en-suite bathroom with bath robes, beautiful decor and satellite tv. We stayed in the conservatory suite for our New Year break and were met by champagne and chocolates.
The food was of an exceptional standard accompanied by the very attentive and hard working staff who had obviously been trained to the highest of standards.
It was our 4th visit at all times of the year and definitely will not be our last because the staff treat first timers and seasoned visitors all as long lost friends.
