The Blonde Hedgehog, a new boutique hotel in St Anne Alderney, is to open its doors on November 15.
The hotel will comprise nine rooms and suites set across two buildings, as well as a restaurant and one detached three-bedroom cottage.
Owned by entrepreneur and philanthropist, Julie-Anne Uggla, The Blonde Hedgehog’s co-founder, Tracey Farquhar-Beck will be general manager.
Built in 1750 as the Rose & Crown pub, the hotel’s main building is home to four rooms, named Lapins, Spikes, The Burrow and The Den – a nod to the island’s varied wildlife.
Named after different areas of the island, Clarence House is comprised of three guest rooms – Beaumont, Sauchet and Tourgis – and two suites, Le Huret and Le Marais.
Dating back to 1740, when it was a workers’ cottage, The Corner House has three bedrooms and is located across the road from The Blonde Hedgehog.
The hotel’s interiors are by Charlie Horner Design, and uses an eclectic mix of vintage and antique pieces, as well as British brands including OKA and Parker Howley & Co.
The Blonde Hedgehog will champion a farm to table ethos.
