Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Well worth the walk up from the middle of town,’ say visitors to this extended 18th-century town house spectacularly set high above St Peter Port’s harbour. The hotel’s bright, uncluttered bedrooms, many with balcony or terrace, some recently refurbished, offer widescreen panoramas of ocean and neighbouring Sark, Herm and Brecqhou. The interiors, tasteful in neutral beige, aqua and peach hues, don’t attempt to distract from the outside drama (although one room in the original house has a wooden four-poster and antiques). All rooms have fluffy robes, quality bedding, seating area and turn-down. In the unfussy, wood-floored dining room, which exploits the hotel’s cliff-top perch with acres of glass, new chef Tony Leck’s seasonal menu showcases local seafood, with the likes of local skate wing, crushed new potatoes, prawn, Lilliput caper and asparagus butter. On fine days, the terrace, with its old granite walls, is the sun-soaked spot for consuming Herm island oysters or hand-picked Guernsey chancre crab. ‘We worked our way through the set, the à la carte and the vegetarian menus. Interesting breads accompanied.’ Breakfast brings a ‘large range’ of cooked dishes. (J and MB)
