Best Western Hotel De Havelet
Travel Blogs from St Peter Port
Our first port of call was the island of Guernsey, just a bit north of France. While technically a part of the United Kingdom, the island certainly had a French feel to it (signs, food, etc). This was a tender port, which means that the ship can't pull right up to a dock but must anchor offshore a bit and the passengers use smaller boats to get from the Ruby Princess to shore. After disembarking our tender, we strolled around the ...

Friday 13th June. I left St Peters Port at about 0430 and headed out on the last couple of hours of favourable tide before 6 hours of adverse current heading towards St Malo, Then the tide was due to turn at about 1300 and the wind, which was very light was due to increase in the afternoon.

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.
