Colliers International’s Hotels Agency division has been appointed to sell the four-star Fermain Valley Hotel. Located on the outskirts of the vibrant capital St Peter Port, the agent is seeking offers in the region of £9 million for the freehold interest.
Set in 3.35 acres on a beautiful, cliff top position the property enjoys stunning views out to sea encompassing the neighboring islands of Herm, Sark and Jersey, and even France on a clear day.
The hotel features 45 boutique bedrooms, fabulous public areas (including some of the island’s finest restaurants); an indoor swimming pool; a large alfresco terrace with stunning sea views; a private cinema and modern events room. Aside from the trading areas, the sale also includes a 3-bedroom cottage and 54 staff bedrooms spread across onsite and nearby properties.
The hotel’s eponymous Valley (with direct access to Guernsey’s infamous cliff paths) leads down to the stunning Fermain Bay, a tucked-away pebble beach, that remains quiet and uncrowded throughout the year.
Guernsey is an ever popular destination, with annual staying visitors estimated around 415,000 and total visitor spend of circa £250 million. The Fermain Valley Hotel is a great base to explore the island’s abundance of attractions and stunning coastline.
