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.
We are proud that Natalie grew up in the area and are both passionate about our village and Dorset. Natalie joined The Acorn as Assistant General Manager in the summer of 2010, while Richard began at The Acorn as a General Assistant in 2010. We are delighted to now lead this wonderful team together and are always happy to personally help our guests with any requests, before, during and after their stay or visit to our beautiful inn.
I have worked in the hospitality industry since a young age, in a variety of different roles. I began working at The Acorn Inn over two and a half years ago and I have now been promoted to the position of Assistant General Manager. It is privilege to work here, as I have been able to develop my skillset and progress within the company.
My career began in Kenya, working in wonderful restaurants and hotels learning to master culinary arts before moving to the UK where I worked in a string of hotels and restaurants. I was delighted to join The Acorn Inn in 2015 as Sous Chef and was honoured to be appointed Executive Chef in 2017. My team and I love to work with the fantastic produce that Dorset has in abundance, and it would be my pleasure to help with any personal dining requests.
