Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm are all part of the Bailiwick of Guernsey. Guernsey, the largest island, would probaly claim to have the best places to stay, but we have found other contenders too on its smaller neighbours.
Guernsey is a beautiful place - with stunning beaches and historical landmarks. Its capital St Peter Port is a bustling harbour town, a fine mix of architectural styles with plenty of boutiques, bistros and restaurants to satisfy most tastes.
If you want to be based here, then one of the best places to stay in Guernsey is the Old Government House. As its name would imply it was once the Governor's residence, but has been a hotel since 1858 and is now the island's first (and only) five star establishment. It has a clubby feel with grand, sometimes theatrical decor plus fine dining restaurant, outdoor pool and spa.
Alderney is the third largest channel island, yet it has managed to stay well off the main tourist trail. Just 8 miles from the coast of France it boasts glorious beaches plus an abundance of wildlife and plants.
Sark and Herm, both tiny carless islands, are much closer to Guernsey. A visit to either takes one to crowd-free bucolic idylls that are reminiscent of days gone by!
The White House on Herm is the only hotel on the island and, as luck would have it, is one to recommend. It boasts a hugely loyal clientele who come back year after year. The ambience is unpretentious and very relaxed. Indeed one of the major selling points is its lack modern gadgetry - no iPod docks or flat screen tvs here. Just great food and a stunning location!
The order of our hotel selection bears no reflection on our preference. Can't find what you're after from our list of the best places to stay in Guernsey? Check out our Jersey selection.
