“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

I have stayed in hotels across the globe and can honestly say I have never found a better 3 star hotel anywhere.
From the moment we arrived the staff were very welcoming, always smiling and so willing to be of help.
The room allocated to us (215) was clean, warm with a comfortable bed. The decoration was clean, bright and in keeping with our expectations.
The food was good, hot and plentiful with a wide choice of dishes. I would recommend the Chicken with Stilton. Breakfast was equally good though could damage your waistline with amounts.
The pool is spotless and had a relaxing Jacuzzi and a separate steam rooms. There are sun beds and a Sauna but we did not use these.
There is a lot to do in Guernsey but I would recommend Victor Hugo's house and the Little Chapel with the nearby Clock Shop.

We have eaten here numerous times and are always greeted with a friendly smile and welcome from the staff. There is a varied menu with quite a large selection of meals and they are all very good!! There is also a "Specials Board" which is different every day with plenty more dishes to tickle the taste buds! The bar area where the bar meals are served is lovely and clean with pleasant decor and service is efficient and friendly. The staff are always so welcoming that it is always a pleasure to eat here. They also always remember which drinks we would like which is a nice touch. I would recommend it for both lunch and evening meals.

Room Tip: We only come here to eat as we live locally!!

We have eaten in both the restaurant and the bar many times and up to now we havent been able to find fault with it! The menu is quite large,there is plenty of choice of meat or fish as well as salads or just sandwiches,the staff are very friendly and helpful. Best of all the price is very fair for a very good meal,be warned if you are not a big eater order a small portion! I have not stayed in the hotel but i have seen the rooms which were excellent.

We have stayed at the La Villette Hotel on many occasions. It should be more than a three star hotel. The rooms are very clean with exceleent ensuite facilities. The hotel offers a free to guests a health and leasure suite with ax excelent swimming pool. The food is of a high standard. Just outside the hotel there are bus stops allows guests without a car easy travel to the coast or St Peter Port. An important point about this hotel is the lift to the bedrooms, especially for the disable. We would not dream of staying elsewhere.

Just back from 9 days at the delightfull la villette. After 20 yrs staying at this hotel l have seen many changes from the staff to the hotel itself to the grounds outside and carpark etc. l have to say the review from scarecrowdevizes is spot on, could not have put it better myself. Can l say anything negative about this place no, what l can say since smoking was banned in the hotel its an even better place to stay.Could l end this review by saying how delightfull cozy & marion his wife, and carl the manager & all the staff ,not forgetting manuel the chef, for always making my stay a warm one,as gregg and toade from masterchef would say, it does,nt get much better than this. well done, see you in september.

Room Tip: room 222 is my choice.

This hotel is a definite must when staying in Guernsey. The bedrooms are all modern with ensuite facilities and tea/coffee making in the room. There is a good restaurant/bar and a modern leisure suite. The owner 'cossie' and his staff are always welcoming, friedly and helpful. Car rental is suggested but the hotel is just a across from a bus stop.

A definite thumbs up!

We have just returned from a long weekend staying at this hotel and felt very strongly that we would like to write a review. From the minute we arrived we were made to feel extremely welcome and our cases were carried up to our room by the very friendly chap on reception (sorry, we don't know his name). Our room was 204 overlooking the front of the hotel and was extremely large indeed. The room was spotless, and warm (on probably what was one of the coldest weekends!) with everything you could possibly need for comfort. Our friends were in 215 and although not as spacious as ours, they were equally satisfied. The swimming pool, jacuzzi's and changing rooms were probably the cleanest we've ever come across. We mostly had the pool all to ourselves (with our friends) ... the jacuzzi's were just like stepping into a hot bath ...... lovely! We did not use the gym but our friend did and he said that this was extremely well equipped.

The breakfasts were good and we ate in the hotel every evening as the menu had good and varied choices. All the staff we came across were friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them.

For a three star hotel, this we would suggest is second to none and we would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone. A very pleasant stay ... thanks to all!
