Guernsey hotels with pools: coastal settings and country house vibes With its charming climate and infinite elegance, it is little wonder that Guernsey and the surrounding Channel Islands are a popular holiday destination. Peaceful but with enough to keep guests entertained, and offering an old world charm that few other parts of the world capture, Guernsey is a destination that invites you to eat and drink well, walk, daydream, go to the beach and simply enjoy being in a beautiful destination. Nowhere is this ethos displayed more beautifully apparent than at the region's hotels, where hospitality is exemplary and style abounds round every corner. A favourite destination for Guide readers for example, is the The White House on the car-free island of Herm. The aptly named, iconic white building has the most breathtaking views of the sea and is accessed by boat. This former country house is surrounded by palm trees and a tractor brings you your luggage, while guests are invited to take tea by the outdoor pool or play croquet in the grounds. Alternatively, La Fregate at St Peter Port is an 18th century clifftop hotel filled with natural light. The hotel offers more contemporary interiors but still provides service with the kind of old school attention to detail that's hard to come by. Bella Luce combines some of the most pleasurable luxuries available, blessed with its own gin distillery and its own spa as well. Here, the historic Norman manor house on St Martin invites you to experience ESPA and Carita treatments. Of course few places compare to The Duke of Richmond, a gleaming four star hotel overlooking the harbour and inviting guests to unwind with an array of activities including a dip in their beautiful outdoor pool. For those who prefer to just sit back and watch the world go by, the terrace takes in the sea as well as the swimming pool and serves a superb afternoon tea complete with Guernsey cream.
