Great room with fabulous views. The hotel is very conveniently located and the staff is friendly and always helpful. We ate dinner at the hotel several times as well as breakfast every day and the food was consistantly delicious. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel.

Our second visit to the hotel. This time we had rooms facing the sea which were lovely. Another very pleasant stay, staff all attentive, good breakfasts and an enjoyable meal in the Havelt Grill.
Children enjoyed daily swims in the swimming pool.
Last time we visited was in the Autumn, this time it was really good to be able to sit on the terrace and have lunch.

We have just returned from a lovely half board fortnight's holiday on Guernsey staying at the De Havelet Hotel.Very clean with friendly staff and excellent meals in a dining room overlooking the sea. We made use of the swimming pool before breakfast and enjoyed walking on the cliff paths,using the bus service to return. The no.11 bus will drop you at the top of George road leaving a short downhill walk,avoiding the steep climb up from the bus station. Very good value for money.

Room Tip: The best rooms are on the second floor at the front overlooking the castle and the sea.

We spent a week at this hotel in 1990, and were extremely impressed, especially by the quality of the food. So we were slightly apprehensive about being placed here for one night as a substitute for its sister establishment, Moore's in The Pollet - our designated "superior" room there was being leaked into from the room above, it seems. The adoption of de Havelet by Best Western produced all kinds of expectations in us, but we need not have worried. The place is as excellent as it ever was. Our room was immaculate and breakfast in the Wellington Boot restaurant was excellent. It managed to be presented "a la nouvelle" without being minimalist.
We did not eat here in the evening, though the temptation was great. Our car was delivered the morning after our arrival and we had forgotten how arduous (in the 2013 heat-wave), the climb from the Esplanade is - though maybe the 23 year intervening period played a part here.) Our subsequent holiday in a self-catering establishment in St Martin was also wonderful - so, thanks, de Havelet for a really splendid start to our first visit to Guernsey in four years (only kept away, I might add, by illness and the lack of a reciprocal health agreement with the UK.)

We have just returned from a three night weekend at the Hotel de Havelet in St Peters Port. The hotel is set back at the southern edge of the town up a hill, with lovely sea views.

Rooms in the main building were excellent, we were upgraded to superior rooms, spacious, well equipped, and very comfortable. There is a spacious spa area, with an indoor pool, sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi, which was well cared for.

Breakfast consisted of an extensive buffet which was regularly replenished, and hot food cooked to order.

All the staff, from reception, to the restaurant and bar, and housekeeping were extremely professional and did all that they could to make our stay enjoyable and relaxing.

We would definitely recommend this hotel, and hope to stay again some time. Thank you.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main building, rooms are quieter and have more character. Recommend booking a...

We have just returned from a 5 day break at De Havelet and, once again, have nothing but praise for the very high standard this hotel achieves-5* on a 3* rating! ALL the staff are unfailingly courteous and professional and this was particularly noticeable in the restaurant where waiting staff had changed since our last visit but certainly not the service quality. We ate in the restaurant every night and the chef and his team are to be congratulated on producing high quality, tasty and imaginative menus. The breakfast buffet is magnificent and there is an excellent choice of cooked items. The hotel is spotless throughout and we have formed the view that the management team and all the staff take a real pride in looking after guests.
