“One for the Foodies”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2008

We stayed here in September. We are cynical Londoners with fast paced lives. We have travelled all over the world and stayed at some amazing Hotels.

We had a fabulous time at La Barbarie.

The food, in particular, was AMAZING. Easily as good as anything you would eat in London prepared by Gordon Ramsay , Gary Rhodes etc. Better than the Oxo Tower on the south bank by miles. Fantastic.

The staff were friendly and went out of their way to make us welcome. The Hotel is very homely and clean.

We shall return.

Our first visit to Guernsey was made all the more special by a great fortnights stay at La Barbarie .
This is a superb hotel,situated in a rural location at St Martins.A bus stop outside connects you with reliable,efficient and cheap travel all over the island.We found that we didn't need to hire a car at all.
The en suite room was comfortable and spotlessly clean.The chambermaids had always serviced our room by the time we had eaten breakfast!
All reception,restaurant staff and management were at all times courteous,friendly and efficient.
The hotels' reputaion for good food is very well deserved,we ate in the hotel restaurant every night and it was superb. Its a good job we took plenty of walks along wonderful cliff paths during our stay to work off those calories!!
All in all this is a hotel with a comfortable,happy atmosphere and we'd love to return. We would recommend La Barbarie to all.

We stayed here for 4 nights in April. The staff were excellent. The food was amazing. We paid for dinner when we booked as it was cheaper. It was incredible value for the standard of food. We met a lot of people staying there who visited every year and just kept coming back. This must be testament to how good it is here. The only down side to this hotel is that the rooms are a bit dated. However they are clean and the facilities are good. The food makes up for this ten times over.

This hotel is situated on the lovely island Guernsey, reachable easily by bus. The hotel rooms are great, although they can be a bit noisy (book a room at the end of the hallway). The staff consists for a large part of work-students that are highly qualified for excellent service. They are friendly, attentive and know how to make you feel at home in the hotel. The kitchen is really good with a fine list of excellent dishes, the service in the restaurant is excellent.

As a local Guernsey resident I have dined at La Barbarie Hotel with friends and family on numerous occassions over many years and have never, ever had cause to complain about the service or food.

Infact, quite the reverse - the staff and Manager are attentive and accommodating to every individual request.

I can highly recommend this hotel for both the accommodation and excellent restaurant. LJF

We stayed here for a week in 2003 and made a return visit with our 3 year old. Really pleased to say that the standard of food and room, and the courtesy of the staff was as good as ever! Also, we were really pleased to find a children's menu on offer.
The half board deal is excellent value.
Lovely garden and a nice pool too.

We had a brilliant time at La Barbarie. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The rooms were excellent and were cleaned every day.

The restaurant was excellent and the food we had their was great and the menu had a variety of choices to choose from.

There was a lovely swimming pool which you could relax in after your day out.

We would most certainly stay there again if we chose to have a holiday in Guernsey.
