On our way back from France we decided to make a stop to explore the island of Guernsey and booked to stay overnight in the Grisnoir Guest House.
We arrived very late as our Ferry had been cancelled due to bad weather and we had to take the Condor Clipper and although it was relatively easy to find, the doors were locked when we got there. I attempted to phone them with no answer and was starting to get worried when I spotted a sign saying check-in was at the Abbey Court Hotel 60 yards down the road. I feel this information should have been clear on the website when we booked.
We checked-in and parked at the Abbey Court Hotel and the receptionist advised us that breakfast would be in the hotel before showing us to our rooms.
We booked two family rooms as there were six of us staying and one had three single beds and an en-suite on the ground floor and the second room had a double and two single beds on the first floor with access to a shared bathroom. Both rooms were clean, tidy and warm and came with plenty of towels, tea / coffee making facilities and a small TV.
If I am honest we were still all feeling a little green after a couple of hours out at sea and couldn’t wait to climb into bed and go to sleep. Isaac and Kian shared the downstairs room and Hubby and I had Eliza and Sebby in with us.
The Grisnoir Guest House has free wifi which was really strong and meant I could keep the kids quiet in the morning with the iPads whilst everyone got showered and dressed.
Hubby went downstairs to Kian and Isaac’s room to have a shower, although there was a shower room upstairs.
Upstairs I gave Sebastian and Eliza a bath as we had only had a shower where we stayed in France.
I am not sure how many people were staying in the Guest House, but we had no issues with queuing for the bathroom or people needing to get in.
All showered and dressed, we headed around the corner for our breakfast and found that the small dining room was packed full, with nowhere to sit. Thankfully it wasn’t too long a wait to be seated and Hubby, Kian and I had a full english breakfast and the kids enjoyed cereal, pastries and toast.
All in all it was a comfortable stay, although not ideal having to walk in the rain to go for breakfast. If you are travelling with young children or have mobility issues it is worth mentioning that there are a lot of stairs in the property, with steps leading up to the front door and stairs and fire doors to negotiate inside.
The rooms cost us £63 each which I thought was very reasonable. I would have prefered to be opposite or next door to Kian and Isaac however there was enough beds that Hubby could have slept downstairs with them if need be.
We checked out with no problems and headed off to explore Guernsey.
