Hollywood Comes to Guernsey
Kenneth Branagh and Kate Winslet are not the first names that spring to mind when thinking of Guernsey...but this may all change soon.

Following the success in the USA of a book entitled “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society” a film is to be made and Mr Branagh has decided to call it simply “Guernsey”.

The star of the film is set to be Kate Winslet and both she and Mr Branagh have visited the Island recently to scout for suitable locations.

If the film is as successful as the book, the Island could see a huge influx of visitors...so book soon to avoid the rush!.
Le Friquet Weather Station
One of our regular Restaurant Guests has brought to light a fascinating story of his experience during the German occupation of Guernsey in World War 2.

As a young boy he recalls playing in the field belonging to Le Friquet Farmhouse (now Le Friquet Hotel). At the time this was a dangerous thing to do as it was occupied by German soldiers who used the building as a “weather station”.

One day a large “weather balloon” broke-free whilst he and his best friend were watching it. They then followed it (along with some worried German soldiers) as it drifted off towards the coast never to be seen again!
Did you know?
Le Friquet Hotel is currently in the top 5 (out of 46) hotels in Guernsey according to Trip Advisor.
How cool is that?
January is always a busy time as we continue our ever rolling refurbishment programme.

So far we have completely decorated apartments 1 and 2 and have installed a state of the art air conditioning system in guest bedrooms.
Customer Comments
It is only with constant feed-back from our valued clients that we are able to continually maintain and improve our high standards. Here's a few "kind words" from recent guests. [ click here ]
 
Food Awards


Head Chef at Le Friquet for over 16 years, Ian Carre has achieved further recognition of his work following independent inspection by the “Visit Guernsey” Inspectorate who have confirmed we have maintained our Restaurant Gold Award along with a special Breakfast Award.



Locally born, Ian is passionate about our Island and its local produce particularly the abundance of glorious Seafood which features throughout our Menu’s. This was noticed and commented upon by the Inspectors.

Well done to Ian and his team!
Snow, What Snow?
We couldn't resist showing this picture of Le Friquet in the snow, even though it wasn't actually a white Christmas this year!

Fortunately the mild weather has allowed our Christmas and new Year Package guests to explore the Island a little more and we have had some great feedback from them - just read our reviews on www.tripadvisor.com

If this whets your appetite for next Christmas and you book now you will receive a free upgrade to one of our fabulous superior rooms (subject to availability of course!).
