We stayed for two nights in April on a short trip to celebrate our wedding anniversary. After some good reviews on here, I was very diasppointed.
On the plus side the hotel is reasonably close to town and the breakfasts were good. But that's where the good things end.
The room we had, although large, was extremely old fashioned. There were two sofas which must have been purchased in 1860. The carpets were in need of replacing, the furniture was tatty, and the bathrooms were that nasty sort of plastic which was common in the 1970s. There was a fridge in the room, which had only one bottle of mineral water in it which looked as though it was drink by April 1940.; this wasnt the good business hotel I had been led to believe it was.
On the first night we arrived, there was an 18th birthday party in one of the downstairs function rooms. So when we returned from a nice meal in St. Peter port, there were drunk youngsters everywhere.....this would have been fine had I been travelling on my own - I probably would have gatecrashed, but not ideal for the wife and I to enjoy a nice quiet drink in the hotel bar before bed. And, speaking of which, I'm not a kill joy, but at nearly 12.15 am, all we could do was to lie in bed and sing along to the tunes that were belting out downstairs. Not exactly the romantic night away that we had planned! But at least we knew the words to the grease megamix, and the beds were extremely soft - too soft for me, but we slept well at least when the DJ finally finished.
For £115 per night, I had expected much more. I am sure this isnt the #1 hotel in St. Peter Port - I won't stay here again.
