눉Well, I had an interesting debate with myself about my room (N° 31): It was supposed to be a "superior single", and I couldn't see its superiority. Don't get me wrong, it was a perfectly lovely room. Like all single rooms it was small with hardly any room for a chair (definitely no room for a comfy chair) and a desk. That's what any standard single room looks like.
Maybe it's superiority simply was that the room faced the garden and was on the ground floor.
The only thing I definitely didn't like was the wall to wall carpet, since these things make me sneeze.
눇I liked the overall atmosphere, everything is rather laid back. Interesting people both in staff and fellow guests.
Meals perfectly fine, sometimes I felt a bit like an alien, travelling alone and having half-board seems to require a bit getting used to (that's how it felt for the first few days anyway).
Even my daily adventure getting out of the house and to the bus station without bothering too many cars was rather fun actually.
The Friquet Hotel is located rather close to Saumarez Park in Castel (not to be mistaken for Sausmarez Manor, which is in St. Martin). So getting to the coasts and to St. Peter Port you'll need a bus or car - with the exception of the lovely nature trail from Saumarez Park to Cobo Bay, which is a nice Sunday Morning walk. I liked the location of the Hotel, even though my "home turf" on Guernsey is rather St. Martin. This is a very, very good alternative. Busses are regular and there is no trouble getting anywhere you want.
