“Lovely hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

The hotel staff are all very friendly and helpful, food is excellent , we stayed in an apartment which was basic but had everything you would need when self catering!, beds were huge and comfy. Having the apartment meant we had a break we could afford but the luxury of the use of all hotel amenities! central to everything the island has to offer.

We went on a sentimental return to Guernsey....la Barbarie had been recommended by friends, and it was a pleasure to be a guest!
The meals were very good ( we made the mistake of "eating out" one evening!), and the staff were attentive and helpful.
Thank you to all!

Room Tip: Overlooking the swimming pool, the rooms have balconies big enough to quaff champagne!

It was two years ago when we last stayed at La Barbarie and from the moment we walked in we knew that it was right to return. So many friendly familiar faces ,not just of the staff but also the returning guests. We were half board and on our first evening meal we were shown to our table , the same table that we had two years before! It is this attention to detail that makes this little hotel SPECIAL as well as the excellent food which is beautifully presented and the lovely comfortable rooms (we had a superior king) it was spotlessly clean . We will definitely return. We always tell our friends how nice it is but the only way to find out is to go there yourself.

Room Tip: We like the extra room that the superior king gives although the standard rooms are also very comfor...

This hotel is the jewel in the crown of Guernsey, for sure! If you want a peaceful location in a small yet friendly attentive caring hotel with luxury at an affordable price then come here! My gluten free diet was catered for superbly so- very impressive indeed!! Went half board. Stayed in a deluxe room- room 29- beautiful! Bed very comfortable yet pillows not great- next time will bring my own pillow then it will be perfect. Room was spacious as well as brilliantly clean all the time.
Every single meal we had was first class in every way possible!! Breakfasts were varied, cooked perfectly as well as delicious, too! Presentation of food was amazing yet it was not a case of style over substance as the taste of the meals was phenomenal too. The restaurant so deserves all the awards it has won!!

It feels like you are part of the family being there, also!

Adored Guernsey too- so much to see and everyone is so helpful!! It is incredibly beautiful! You feel like you are abroad, too!! Even the climate is slightly warmer than mainland and people from Guernsey are friendlier as well!!

Next time go to Guernsey with hubby we will return to La Barbarie for sure as well as stay for slightly longer- stay for a full week, too! Four days just was not long enough- we were sad to go!!

Thank you La Babarie for making it so memorable for us!
Was very challenged with my fibromyalgia as well as had two migraine attacks- was amazed at how caring all the staff were towards me!
Hubby and I made friends with fellow guest there known as The Barbarians- regulars- they were super lovely, too!!

Our first time at La Barbarie yet we will be back, most definitely!! What a gem of a place!!
Decided to come here from reading reviews here on Trip Advisor- well- thanks Trip Advisor- it sure does deserve all the fab reviews here! Apparently it is rated highly on other accommodation review websites, too!

Great to hear different nationalities languages within hotel- that other countries guests also enjoy staying at La Barbarie, absolutely!! Whilst we were there there were 3 different languages we detected :-)! A lovely international feel!!


One of our best hotels that we have stayed in home or away!!

Room Tip: deluxe rooms like room 29

We stayed in a superior room for 4 nights in August and had a lovely time. The staff were welcoming and efficient, making our stay very enjoyable.
I think the description on the hotel's website sums it up pretty well - " A cozy, small hotel in a rural location combined with a popular award winning restaurant".
Well worth a visit.

Room Tip: Try for a superior room in annex overlooking pool
