What a wonderful find your guest house is in Guernsey. You have thought of everything!
The welcome and service is A1 +++++ - - - - - - - - '
'Now I understand why you have chosen to open your doors (and your kitchen, and your cellar) to guests. You welcome people like nobody! La Roche is actually the embassy of all foreign countries, the house where anyone could find room and board, and protection. It is “la maison du Bonheur” for everyone except the poor lobsters who have been sacrificed for our pleasure. Just one problem, after having tested and tasted your 6 stars Maison d’Hôte, anything else will taste insipid.
Thank you Jane for your energy, your generosity and bravo for your talent as “cookgardenerguidehostess…” and Merci David for the great wines we shared,and bravo for your infectious good humour.’
'The garden is mature, lots of nice, quite spots to sit in and a nice little pool.
It was very exciting as I there when the establishment was featured in the Saturday daily Telegraph as the best guest house in Guernsey and from my experience they have got it spot on! I look forward to a return visit one day’.
'But what do we really think ? Well we have been vocal ( but we whisper it – don’t want to give the best kept secret away ) ambassadors for the Guernsey experience in general and the La Roche ‘’hospitality epicentre’’ in particular and are planning a return trip next year if you’ll have us ?
Our stay with you was without question the highlight and therapy for what was a highly stressful summer . Jane and David, you well know you have a truly lovely b&b , BUT what made it special for us was your ever-helpful and friendly approach and we just really enjoyed your company and felt at home.’
'Thank you very much we have had a fantastic time - great way to continue my BIG birthday celebrations. Lovely food and good company, we hope to be back.’
'Easily the best staying experience I have had in all my touring trips. Thanks a lot David and Jane for your exceptional hospitality and kindness! I shall be sure to recommend La Roche to anybody I know visiting Guernsey.’
‘We appreciated the Beckstein, the pool, the wonderful breakfasts, lovely room but most of all your kind and helpful personalities.’
'Just coming to the end of our second stay at La Roche, wish we were staying longer! Still never mind, we can always come again. Thank you David and Jane for all the fun we had especially last night’s dinner and all the lovely people we met. Until the next time.’
'Thank you for such a wonderful stay. It has been memorable and I would say after visiting 112 countries this is the best B & B I have been to. Extraordinaire!’
“…Very welcoming hosts Helpful in planning our days Dropped us into town Most generous with their time Excellent breakfast Comfortable, traditional surroundings…”
“…Right from the start, I was made to feel warmly welcomed and I was picked up from the airport on arrival which was a welcome change for a solo traveller La Roche is a beautiful house and the room I stayed in was luxurious, clean and comfortable I shared a bathroom and toilet with the room next door but this was not a problem and worked very well The owners, Jane and David were exquisite hosts They were really helpful about what to see and the best way of getting there Breakfasts were delicious and lots to choose from…”
“…They arranged an evening meal one night for the guests which was fabulous and a great way to meet other travellers David was always on hand to offer a lift to town which was much appreciated Although I didn't make use of it during my stay, there was a heated pool and a magnificent garden that you could use This was a very different experience for me from the usual B&B Hotels I have stayed in It was very warm and friendly with an abundance of help and advice on offer if you needed it I would whole heartedly recommend this hotel to other travellers and would definitely think of returning their myself It was a pleasure to meet Jane and David…”
“…The house is expansive and luxurious, and the hospitality is in keeping You are made to feel welcome and at home The garden facilities and jaccuzi are a delight…”
“…Freundlichkeit und Hilfsbereitschaft der Gastgeber Jane und Davidpersönliche Betreuungperfektes Frühstück…”
“…Ambiente im Haus…”
“…Jan und David sind so herzlich und hilfsbereit …”
“…Die Zimmer sind so niedlich eingerichtet und das ganze Haus ist einfach nur toll…”
