Good Hotel Guide Review
High on the clifftop above St Peter Port, this townhouse hotel has enviable views over the harbour and neighbouring islands, sleek bedrooms and an established reputation for its food. Interiors of the 18th-century building, sympathetically extended, are contemporary yet the hotel’s service remains polished and traditional. Expect silver service at dinner in the restaurant with its panoramic windows, striking white and shades-of-blue colours and crisp tablecloths. The monthly changing menu highlights local seafood – Guernsey crab, local sea bass and hand-dived scallops – as well as classics such as steak tartare and shepherd’s pie. Drinks on the terrace are the best way to start the evening. All bedrooms enjoy views over the harbour to the islands of Sark, Herm and Brecqhou, and are light and airy with milky colours, accents of lilac and blue, and bleached-wood furniture. Desks and leather armchairs can give them a corporate feel. Book one with a balcony or terrace and you’ll be tempted to breakfast in your room to enjoy the morning sun while tucking into cooked options that include kippers, eggs Benedict and omelette.
