Dear Guest

We were delighted to recently learn that Guernsey featured in number 2 spot in the Sunday Times list of "Best Holiday Destinations for 2020", just behind Sri Lanka.

Admittedly, we're a bit light on elephants, but if you're looking for a holiday island destination with no visas, no jet lag, no jabs and friendly pounds I would venture to suggest Guernsey is a wiser option!

In your latest issue of Le Friquet Hotel's newsletter catch up with the all the latest news, views and special offers and enter our FREE reader's competition to win a scrumptious Guernsey Tennerfest Break for two.

Celebrate the 75th Anniversary of our Liberation

2020 is the 75th anniversary of Guernsey's Liberation, commemorating the Islands' freedom from German Occupation during World War II. It will be a day not to be missed.

Don't worry if you can't make it for Liberation Day itself, there are 75 specially themed events taking place throughout the whole year.

Why not book one of our super value short breaks and be a part of these very special celebrations this year.

A Special Thank You and "Boa Sorte" to Fernanda

After 20 years of loyal service Fernanda, our long-standing Head Housekeeper, has decided to hang up her feather duster. We are very sad to see her depart, being such a valued part of the team.

Thank you, Fernanda, for all your hard work and friendship over the years. We wish you every success in the future.
It's Official. We're Sunnier than Jersey

News | Published: Jan 31, 2020.

Latest statistics have shown that Jersey’s claim to be the sunniest place in the British Isles is in doubt, with data from 2019 suggesting that the sun shines more on Guernsey.

The Met Office at Guernsey Airport recorded 1,875 hours of sunshine during 2019 and the figure at Jersey Airport lagged behind at 1,781 hours.

However, Jersey has another recording site at the elevated Fort Regent leisure centre, and at this spot 2,298 hours of sunshine were recorded.

Fort Regent is high up on the south coast of Jersey and has far-reaching views to the horizon which would boost figures at the beginning and end of the day. It has raised the question of whether Jersey is being a bit cheeky in using the Fort Regent figures and not its airport data.

The marketing strap line of ‘sunniest place in the British Isles’ has been hugely successful for the "other island". However, by comparing like with like at the two airports, Guernsey emerges as the clear winner in the sunshine stakes.

Deputy Joe Mooney is the tourism lead on the Economic Development committee. He thought it was an interesting analysis and added that Guernsey already had a very authentic offering. "Guernsey people are definitely much warmer and we’ve got sunnier personalities".

Winter Works . . . the Final Push

You could be (and will be) forgiven for thinking Winter is a quiet time here at your favourite Guernsey Hotel. But no, it's full on, as usual with our rolling program of refurbishment and improvements.

This year has seen the upgrade of a tranche of bathrooms, extension to the sun terrace and the creating of quiet seating area in the garden. Not to mention the behind the scenes stuff like kitchen upgrades. All of which are intended to add value to your stay with us.
