TravelPod Member ReviewsBest Western Hotel De Havelet St Peter Port
I was very happy with my experience here. I had missed the ferry and needed an extra night in St Peter Port but didn't want to go back to the B&B where I had stayed. I ran into quite a few no vacancies until I got to Moore's Best Western where the very helpful desk clerk called numerous downtown hotels and then finally got me a room at their sister Hotel De Havelet. My room was very cozy and my dinner lovely. I was too tired to take advantage of the sauna. I found staff at both hotels to be exceptionally helpful and pleasant.

... of 1781, the time of the Battle of Jersey, against the French (who else?) in the American Civil War.
Came back to shore on the amphibious ferry, except by now the tide was out so it didn't need the water propulsion.
Also to be noted is that the first airfield in Jersey, in operation from 1933 to 1937, was on the beach at St. Aubin's Bay, so the flight schedules were governed by the tide, as the beach is covered at high tide!
... in 1939. The museum described the history of the squadron and described all the various aircraft they flew - I won't bore you with the details!!!
At noon everyday they re-enact firing the noon-day gun, or cannon, when two "red-coated soldiers" march to the gun and fire it -electronically now, but it still makes a big bang and lots of smoke, that impress most of the tourists!
In the afternoon, I went out to the northern end of the Island to ...
An over night sail and we arrived in Guernsey early morning so we had plenty of time to wander round this lovely town. A great place and felt just like Cornwall. Had to spend 3-4 hours having brunch as we needed to download charts before heading off again for the UK so brunch turned into afternoon beers. Feeling very bold ...
So we've had a week in Guernsey. Christina took us for a guided tour all around the Island. Around every corner(and there are a LOT of corners) is an absolute delight. Little cottages with rose gardens, stone/granite walls everywhere. The Island is a granite rock. It's about 7 by 5 mile, shaped like a triangle, but if you add all the lanes together it's about 250 miles of road! With about 60,000 people.
Guernsey is such a pretty place. The Council spend a fortune on flower pots just everywhere. They hang from all the shops in the town and line the streets, they are immaculate. Bright vibrant colourful flowers which are very healthy looking! Amy told me they even employ someone to Srape chewing gum off the pavements, I wonder what their job description is. Guernsey has won prettiest town last year.
There is so much history ...
