Family suites

Our beautifully appointed Herm, Sark, Centenary and Studio suites are the perfect choice for a relaxed and enjoyable family break.

All of these rooms can accommodate two adults and one child (under 13), while our Sark Suite is suitable for two adults and two children under the age of 12.
