Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 28, 2014

Stayed for 4 nights in this excellent hotel. Food was very good and staff very professional and friendly. Little bit disappointed at the size of the room - looked a lot bigger in pictures online but was clean and comfortable. Bathroom was quite small and basin was located behind the door, which meant banging the door on the basin unless you remembered! Very creaky wardrobe (maybe a touch of WD40?) and we had noise from the room next door which was obviously the utility room for the cleaners (noise from tumble dryer went on for hours one day). On the plus side the breakfast was very good as were the meals. Very busy on our last evening in the restaurant so service was not quite so good but on the whole a very pleasant experience.

Room Tip: Room 16 is the one next to the utility room

Dear Carole, thank you for taking the time to post your comments on Trip Advisor and for decribing us as "excellent"! I am really sorry to read you heard noise from the room next door which is used by the Housekeeper in the morning ( never in the evening). I have spoken to her about use of a small domestic Drier which I believe may have been the cause of the noise you refer to and we will not allow this to happen again. I have fixed the wardrobe door as you suggested, thank you!

We booked this hotel for a short break in Guernsey based on Trip Advisor reports and were not dissapointed. Le Friquet is an easy drive from the airport ( we had a hire car which was well worth having). It is set in very well maintained gardens and has a very good, warm pool !!
The room was fine, not huge, but very clean and comfortable. We ate out once but decided that the hotel's restaurant offered a very good choice of food and wine... It also saved driving !!
All the staff are clearly very well trained and take care to ensure that guests have the best possible experience
I would recommend Le Friquet to any one visiting this lovely island

This was a find! Beautiful elegant hotel with amazing grounds and the loveliest hotel pool. I stayed for two nights and found the team to be charming and helpful. Food was locally sourced and delicious. I look forward to rebooking this hotel. Note. The pool is deep ( perfect for me!) so probably not ideal for kids.

I stayed here with colleagues for just a few nights. The staff were welcoming and the hotel well presented if a little dated.
My room was comfortable. However the shower head was in a slightly awkward position above the seat in a corner bath, making it hard to stand under the flow.
Breakfast and lunch were both good.
Good value for money. A very pleasant and enjoyable stay.

Stayed 6 nights at Le Friquet, travelled from Cambridge in February 2014 to attend my brother's 80th birthday. Had a wonderful time, excellent leisurely breakfast, sausages delicious (had two instead of Bacon), staff extremely helpful and always so cheerful. Manager always around asking if everything was satisfactory - of course it was. Was so nice to regulate the heat and air conditioning in my room, very comfortable bed and beautiful roomy bathroom. I invited all the family for a carvery meal which was excellent, as they live quite near Le Friquet they had dined at the hotel on many occasions. Will be back in Guernsey at the end of July to attend my niece's wedding, will be staying with my relatives this time but will certainly be booking at least one evening meal during my 2 weeks stay. Thank you so much for making an 83 year old so happy and comfortable.

Room Tip: The location was ideal for me as it was 5 minutes drive from my brother's house, could not stay...
