A quiet seaside retreat
St Peter Port, Guernsey
Our peaceful setting, overlooking leafy parkland, offers the feeling of a quiet seaside retreat, and yet we are just a short stroll down the gentle hill to the heart of St Peter Port, known as one of Europe’s prettiest harbour towns.
Our luxurious hotel offers the perfect location in this charming seaside town, with magnificent views across the sea. Savour exquisite dining with fresh local seafood in stylish surroundings, as our dedicated team ensures your memorable stay exceeds your highest expectations.
The Duke Of Richmond is temporarily closed due the current travel restrictions. During this time, our team will be working hard to ensure the hotel is at its best, and ready to welcome you back soon.
Due to the design and rich history of the property, we are constricted with regards to structural changes to be totally accessible, however, whether you have mobility, hearing or visual impairments, we will be able to suggest the best solution to ensure your stay in Dorset is as comfortable as it is luxurious.
Sadly we do not have any ground floor bedrooms. For wheelchair users, our sister hotel just opposite has three ground floor rooms, one of which has been designed specifically for guests with special access needs.
All bathroom floors have a non-slip treatment on the tiles and non-slip bath mats.
Feather and hypoallergenic pillows can be requested.
We operate a system of PEEP’s (Personal Emergency Evaluation Plan) - assisted escape for disabled visitors. Please tell our staff your requirements and we will provide you with a suitable escape plan.
The Acorn Inn is committed to its policy that persons with disabilities have a full and equal opportunity to benefit from the goods, services, privileges, advantages and accommodations offered by the Inn.
As part of this commitment, we are continually improving our website to make it more accessible. If you encounter any difficulty using our website, have suggestions about improving the usability or accessibility of the website, or would like to know more about the Inn's commitment to accessibility, please contact the General Manager by email using the contact information below.
The bar, restaurant, lounge and reception are all on the same level with no steps.
There are two steps down to our skittle alley. The skittle alley can also be accessed with one step from the car park.
In the restaurant, we have a mixture of armchairs and side chairs.
If you wish to avoid the steps customers can be dropped off at our front door on the main village lane. The front door leads immediately into our restaurant with no steps leading around to reception.
There is room for people and luggage to be dropped off at the front door before parking in the car park. We are happy to assist with your bags. We advise you not to park in the lane as it is very narrow and tractors are very wide!
