“Faultless hotel”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Returned to La Villette after a break of ten years. Same attention to detail.
along with quality staff ensured a great stay. Varied menu, perfectly cooked
and presented. Ideal location, with the bus stop to St Peter Port just yards away.
Nice spacious and comfortable room in keeping with the high standards of this hotel.
Will not leave so long next time.

Just had the pleasure of staying at La Villette Hotel for 4 nights over the weekend wish we had booked for a longer period . Will definitely be coming back. From the moment we checked in we were made to feel very welcome from ALL the staff for the duration of our stay. We had room 234 on the front a large bright room ,with an excellent size bathroom. Plenty of drawers and wardrobe space and you will never run out of complementary coffee,tea and chocolate drinks Although on the front of the hotel we did not hear any noise at all . The hotel has a gym,indoor and outdoor swimming pool bar and an excellent restaurant serving superb food and good size meals ,if not a big eater ask for a small serving as the meals are on the generous size. The local bitter is also a good pint brewed on the island .I have stayed in many 3 star hotels all over the world business and pleasure and this welcoming hotel is definitely top of the list .A lot of local people eat and drink at this hotel so what more can be said its the best recommendation possible . Excellent value for money .Why only a 3 star ? I just wish i could tick more than 5 stars on the ratings.

Room Tip: Front room 234 excellent overlooking front entrance/car park but no noise at al.l

I have stayed in a number of hotels in my time but I can honestly say that this hotel provided the best experience ever. The rooms were light and airy and the bed super comfortable. The staff were superb from the moment we arrived and couldn't do enough for us. They made the whole experience a truly unforgettable one. The food was nicely presented and plenty of it with something for everyone. The breakfast was cooked to order and plenty of choice. If anything the bar area is lacking a bit of character but that would be my only criticism. We used the pool facilities which were superb and free to staying guests. My only advice to visitors to Guernsey would be not to go to Crabbie Jacks at Vazon. Two members of our group were seriously ill afterwards and the service was rubbish. The staff at La Villette could certainly teach them a lesson or three.

Room Tip: Room 215 is lovely with an extra bedroom (so you can get away from snorers if need be!)

This hotel was recommended to us and it was great , it should be better than three star
From the moment we arrived the staff made us feel welcome and could not do enough for us, always smiling and welcoming. The room was 221 was clean warm and the bed was very comfortable with plenty of space for clothes.
Food was excellent with a varied menu, the only problem we had was there was too much food but you cannot complain of that. The specials board was excellent, and the breakfast and lunches were excellent too.
I used the swimming pool and was very impressed by the facilities there and understand that they are thought to be the best on the island.

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.
