I booked the hotel on the basis of the Tripadvisor reviews and can only endorse what has been written before. The location is ideal, away from the hassle and bustle of the centre but close enough to be accessible (be warned the hill really IS steep!). The upside of this is that you get fantastic views, especially from the 1st floor restaurant.
The facilities are excellent and the indoor pool is a real bonus as the weather can be variable. The lounge has a computer for guest use, which is free of charge. We also thought the teas and coffees in the lounge menu were excellent value for money, they included several biscuits as well as a choice of brands.
The rooms are relatively spacious and well equipped, with all the required extras, such as iron, hairdryer, kettle and toiletries.
Finally, I must mention the attentive service provided by the reception staff. Our ferry to Alderney was cancelled at the last minute and the receptionist did all he could to find alternative transport and accommodation; going way beyond that which we would have expected.
Overall, an excellent choice for a trip to Guernsey, you would be hard pushed to beat the service and facilities at the De Havelet. less
