It isn't until you visit Guernsey and peruse property prices you appreciate why accommodation is so expensive. Property prices on Guernsey are simply extortionate even by London standards. Why do I begin my review making this point? Don't complain you are not getting value for money unless you have compared either similar accommodation or weighed up the pro's and con's against more expensive hotels. Accommodation on Guernsey is not cheap.
What do you want in a hotel? Clean, tidy, good breakfast, friendly staff, room to shower in privacy and a comfortable bed. If you want hotels with extras expect to pay approx £200 per night.
I was a little reserved having read some of the reviews prior to our short break. I need not have worried. We are not youngsters but we are mobile and unless you are going to taxi into town you need to be mobile. Dunchoille is located about 25 minutes walk (uphill from the town and quite steep) into the centre of St Peter Port. The walk is lovely with sea views 80% of the way - it is steep in places so be prepared. For us it was chance to walk off some of the amazing meals we consumed as well as get a great feel for the area. Oh yes and people actually smile and say hello as you walk down the street.
Our room had a double bed, spacious wardrobes and a hand wash basin in the same room. The shower and toilet made best use of the space but was a little tight. Shower itself was fine with good pressure and space to move.
Full English breakfast available and the staff are happy to do variations on a theme - in fact Maggie and her team cannot do enough for you. I drink decaf coffee so Maggie gave me her own as they had none available during our stay. There is a bar and swimming pool but we didn't use them due to our hectic schedule - as I say we walk everywhere and for long periods.
Everything was clean, tidy and comfortable with a very warm welcome. We will be visiting Guernsey again as it is a wonderful place, maybe our new found love, we'll see. Plenty to do, great walking and wonderful restaurants and we will be staying in Dunchoille again.
