Map & Directions

It's a 15-minute drive from Guernsey's airport to the hotel, or you can take the 11 bus (30 minutes) to the bus terminus in St Peter Port, which is 20 minutes' walk from the hotel. For those arriving by ferry, it's also a 20-minute walk uphill from the port. The hotel is in the capital so you can do without a car, but it might be worth hiring one if you want to explore the island.

Overview

"A little bit of Africa in the middle of the Channel", The Duke of Richmond has "masses to take in", says The Times. With stylishly eccentric interiors -- think exotic leopard-print carpets and polished checkerboard floors -- you'd never guess that you're in Guernsey, where locals still sell eggs and home-grown freesias from honesty boxes on the quiet island lanes.

But it's not just the décor that turns heads. In the restaurant, guests can watch the chefs whip up homemade crab cakes and rotisserie chicken in the glass-walled kitchen, and sample wine imported from the owner's South African vineyard (Bouchard Finlayson). Squeeze in a splash in the heated outdoor pool (open during summer) and soak up the rays on the terrace.

Rooms are quiet, with modern stripes and bold colours, side-by-side with pretty chandeliers and period features. Many have sea views and extra beds can be accommodated in some rooms for families. Opt for a Junior Suite for more space -- some also have private terraces with lounge chairs.

The hotel is set in a quiet residential area overlooking Cambridge Garden, a 10-minute walk downhill to the seafront and town centre (St Peter Port is on a steep hill, so you might want to take a taxi back to the hotel).

Spend the day exploring the 800-year-old Castle Cornet on the harbour front or stroll to the Victorian Candie Gardens, where manicured lawns stretch towards stunning views across the rooftops and sea beyond. Don't miss Hauteville House, where Victor Hugo (author of Les Misérables) spent 15 years in exile.
