Had a wonderful week in the middle of August - weather was a bit mixed but in all circumstances St Peter Port and Guernsey are charming, and Hotel De Havelet probably the best place to stay.
Location is good - 10 minute stroll out of town - easy going into town (downhill) but a bit more arduous coming back after a meal!
The various restaurants in Hotel are all brilliant! From the formal to less formal - all excellent food, well served, and good value - the staff are ALL very well trained and attentive and nothing is too much trouble. We got hooked on a glass of their Proscecco with Aperol (a pink liquer made from oranges,fruit and rhubarb of all things!) before a meal.
Breakfast really does have something for everyone - I had a different cooked breakfast each morning and still didn't get through every option!
We stayed in Room 27 - the one on the front with a balcony - yes it's a sea view but the trees are getting taller! Still wonderful views in any case. Big comfortable bed and well equipped bathroom - although the cupboard door squeeked a bit. Really peaceful location - shame we had unfortunate neighbours for the last 2 nights - they must have been hard of hearing as they had VERY loud voices and we could hear every word! But that's not the Hotel's fault - we didn't hear other or previous neighbours.
There are plenty of public rooms, and whilst there were odd places where you could see some redecoration would be needed soon, overall we felt it was in good repair.
Saw a comment about over-chlorinated pool - yes it hurt my eyes a bit too but were told it wasn't chlorine. Whatever, next time I'll remember my goggles as it's a great little pool, with sunbeds and towels provided and a good spot to read the paper!
Free wifi useful for us - may not be important to everyone.
So overall, well worth the extra for a superior room if budget allows, and the staff made it a relaxing holiday to remember. We will return
