The Duke of Richmond Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 12, 2011

Stayed with my sister and disabled mother for four nights. The staff were very friendly and helpful as my sister and I asked to change from a double room to twin room upon our arrival. This was done very quickly and we were very pleased with the large twin room we were allocated. A few problems parking near the hotel every night, despite having a disabled badge. The hotel has a few parking spaces in a car park opposite, but not enough during our stay and only one disabled bay on the street nearby. My mother had to use the service lift to get to her room. Breakfasts were very good, nothing was too much trouble for the restaurant staff. Outside pool was very clean. Overall a very pleasant stay and Guernsey is a very friendly island to visit.

We stayed here on a 3 nights for the price of 2 which was a good start. We dealt directly with the hotel people who arranged our flights as from Southampton and the transfers to and from the hotel. Everything went without a hitch even the weather (nice touch eh!) The staff are every bit as good as previous reviewers have already stated particularly Olga, the lady in charge of the waiters and waitress. The maitre d himself makes sure that all the guests are happy and that the wine is served at the right temperature (extremely important to me). The food is very well prepared and presented so the head chef is pretty good too. The scene in the bar is also very good so there is no need to go out at all in the evening unless you have something special in mind. Our room, a standard one was quite adequate but an upgrade would have provided more room I'm sure. The room itself was clean enough if a little old fashioned and the chambermaid called each evening to see if there was anything we needed replenishing. The town centre is only a short walk away, down through the park. Once there the shops are varied with a mixture of independant and familiar British chain stores. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants. You must try the "gache" currant bread (pronounced gosh) which is a very useful filler around mid-day and if you can find it "gache mellee" a kind of apple pie. Getting around the island is so easy on the buses, which only have one fare £1 or you can hire bikes. There doesn't seem to be any reason to hire a car at all. Finally one place that doesn't seem to on Tripadvisor is La Vallette Underground Military Museum located in St Peter Port just opposite the bathing pool. It's well worth a visit even if you are German.

If, like us, your enjoyment of a stay in a hotel depends upon friendly, efficient and good humoured staff, then the Duke of Richmond is for you. And the food is brilliant - we had half board, and really recommend it.

this was our first stay at the duke of richmond hotel. we loved it and we are defenitly going back once. everything was excellent from the moment we checked in till the moment we checked out. when we arrived at the reception they were very friendly and helpfull. we got a nice room on the second floor. the room was on the roadside but it didn't gave us any trouble at all because we slept very well for all the 5 nights. every morning we went to the restaurant for breakfast. the restaurant manager and the staff looked after us verry well. the menu for breakfast was good and we could make some changes on it as well. in the evening we had dinner in the bar, wich was very delicious and the price was very reasonable. I would like to make my compliments to the kitchen for this. after the dinner we went back to our room and the housekeeping who already serviced our room did a very good job. later on in the evening we had some drinks in the very nice and cosy bar. the ambiance was very pleasant. the barmanager was very kind and he served us well. unfortunately the bar closed arround midnight wich was a pity but it wasn't a big deal at all because we could sit in the lounge after that.

to walk from the duke of richmond hotel to st peters port will take you about 10 to 15 minutes wich is a nice and pleasant walk. in st peter port are lots of things you can do, like shopping or have a drink on one of the terraces. a good idea is to take the bus that goes all the way arround the island wich is a nice tour.

everything together makes the duke of richmond hotel an excellent hotel with a very friendly staff from housekeeping staff to restaurant staff. the food they serve is delicous. in our experience the hotel should be a 5 star hotel and we are definitely going back once.

Room Tip: room 203 a very nice room

Have been staying at the Duke of Richmond with my family for the last 7 years for our holidays and have known Guernsey for the last 40 years and have never found a better situated hotel, more friendly staff, good food and an overall good management.

Would recommend it to anyone.
We will certainly be returning in the near future.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view.

Hotel is in a nice location (5 minutes to town) with a lovely view over the bay below. We had booked a family room, so that our son could sleep in a separate area and we were given a fantastic two room studio with lounge/kitchen on one side and large bedroom on the other. Rooms aren't particularly new, but as they are not worn out, it really didn't matter.

The hotel only has four carparks but it was actually rather easy to find on-street parking nearby.

High above St Peter port, the Duke of Richmond hotel sits adjacent to a park in a quiet residential area. A steep walk up hill to the hotel, (but an OK walk back to town) or a short bus/taxi ride either way. (Use of a taxi or hire car is suggested for arrival) ! Our room was large & nicely furnished, the public areas however look a little tired. The hotel was a good choice however, and we'd return if the price was right; the one downside for us was that their safe deposit facility (located at the Reception) consisted of just sealed bags in the hotel safe (nothing in the guest room, nor individual safe deposit boxes available) which we found inadequate for our purposes due to the fragile nature of some items and the need to regularly access them (no laptops or cameras fit for example). The staff were lovely and everyone was welcoming and friendly.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front overlook the park, rooms at the side are on the street which may be noisier depen...
