A top hotel and restaurant in Guernsey has reopened following a substantial refurbishment, which is part of an ongoing improvement programme at the hotel.
La Fregate has been closed for six weeks, during which a new kitchen was built, new boilers and air conditioning units installed, two bedrooms refurbished and the restaurant’s wood flooring returned to its former glory.
The 22-bedroom boutique is also home to a 2 AA Rosette restaurant, alongside two private dining or meeting rooms, catering for between 10 and 40 people.
General manager, Simon Dufty said that the changes help to further prove the hotel’s commitment to improving the guest experience.
He said: “I am extremely proud of the team that undertook this project. Everyone involved has worked incredibly hard to complete a substantial programme of work in just six weeks. We were up against the wire towards the end – as is common with these projects – and the final contractors departed only 24 hours before opening.
“The work we have undertaken will be beneficial to staff and guests alike and will also deliver tangible environmental benefits. The new boilers are far more efficient and create cleaner emissions; we have a new non-slip resin floor in the kitchen together with the latest fire suppression technology.
