Guernsey Hotels

The Bailiwick of Guernsey is made up of six islands in the English Channel. Beautiful coastlines, verdant countryside, and a fantastic foodie tradition have made the islands a popular holiday destinations. Each island has its own unique charm with plenty to offer visitors. When you’re deciding which island to stay on, it’s worth thinking about what you’re looking for from your holiday. So where do you want to stay in Guernsey?

Guernsey Island

The largest island in the Bailiwick has plenty going on. There’s a lot to discover, from world class restaurants serving up delicious local produce, to the stunning natural scenery: including a varied coastline with 27 beaches and some seriously beautiful cliff-top walks. The island’s capital, the historic harbour town of St Peter’s Port, is also worth a visit. Guernsey is particularly beautiful in summer, when wildflowers appear in the hedgerows. There’s a great range of high end hotels in Guernsey, with plenty of traditional country house hotels on offer as well as independent guesthouses and some lovely boutique offerings.

Alderney

Alderney is the closest of the Channel Islands to France, and boasts the highest concentration of pubs in the islands: as well as plenty of interesting history. Beautiful beaches come into their own during the warm months, while visitors arriving during spring and autumn will appreciate the golf courses and hiking trails. Most of the accommodation on Alderney is of the intimate and old fashioned style, with plenty of charming family run hotels and boutique guesthouses. There are a few large hotel chains starting to creep in, too.

Sark

You won’t encounter much traffic on this tranquil island: the only vehicles allowed are tractors, bikes, and horse drawn carriages. It’s a great place to relax, whether you want to wander along the flower lined coastal paths, indulge in a bit of fishing, or go for a dip in the sea. By night you can stargaze: Sark is known for its lack of light pollution, and became the world’s first Dark Sky Island in 2011. There are restaurants, cafes, and charming hotels sprinkled throughout the island.
