I've got to say this last weekend is one I enjoyed immensely. My friends and I booked a few rooms for a small reunion. Of course I was in charge of arranging it all. Even at the time of booking I found all helpful. The receptionist who took my call couldn't have been more charming. She answered all of my questions, even some that I didn't know I wanted to ask. She was the same at arrival, extremely helpful to the point that she seemed worried every second we weren't smiling.
Being right in the center of town made it a great help. Granted it would have been a bit difficult to get to had we had our own car, but I can't blame the hotel for the islands infrastructure, On foot however was great, the main shopping street is literally right around the corner, as is the central bus terminal. plenty of pubs and restaurants nearby as well. But I wouldnt see the need to go anywhere else as the food in both the hotels bar and restaurant was heavanly.
As we were a group friends the hotel offered aus a private room for our meals and we were looked after by the restaurant and bar staff. I must admit its not often that I see the staff of a place work so well together, but also being very friendly and helpful. We almost felt like a part of the family and were sad to say goodbye to all of them.
As for the rooms some of us stayed in the executive rooms and some of us in the standard rooms out in the courtyard. I can't speak for my friends but I loved my executive room. It did cost a bit more than I expected but in the end was worth it. Quality does come with a price afterall.
I can say ultimately that the Duke of Normandie is great hotel, nicely placed. If I had to say there was a downside it might be not the best place for anyone with a car who doesn't know Geurnsey. Rather stay on foot and stick with the public busses.
