The Blonde Hedgehog is very stylish. Food is excellent, staff, in particular Victor the restaurant manager, very friendly, and attentive. We ate the tuna tataki and arancini, and then sea bass and black bream, followed by the early grey crème brûlée. Everything delicious plus a bottle of NZ Albariño. Well priced.

A really splendid evening out. Our first time out for dinner here. The set menu choices were varied enough for us and reasonably priced(ish)
The fish dishes were well sized and incredibly tasty. It was clear much thought and care had gone into the preparation. Puddings were EXTRAORDINARY. The chocolate fondant was awesome alongside the strawberry ice cream!
The staff were knowledgeable about the food and the wines. VERY WELL DONE

We have just returned from our fourth trip to this gem of a hotel staying in Lapins- a beautiful room. We have stayed with friends, a three generation family trip (including a 17 month old) and this time as a couple. Every trip has been fantastic.
The staff are so welcoming and the service is unobtrusive but excellent eg our room has always been serviced while we are at breakfast. The food is superb with an abundance of local and homemade items (the homemade granola is a delight and can be bought at Butchers in Victoria street to enjoy on your return). The three bedroomed ‘Cornerhouse’ opposite is ideal for families - you can even have dinner delivered from the main hotel. This was our choice for the family break. We can’t wait to book another trip.

What can I say? The Blonde Hedgehog is a fantastically appointed boutique Hotel in the heart of St. Anne's. We had a deluxe bedroom which was large and comfortable. The gorgeous bathroom was huge and very tastefully done. Excellent, friendly staff made you feel very welcome. The restaurant food was very good with an interesting choice of menu. Booked our third trip here for next year!

Absolutely lovely restaurant, great food and nice staff, ordered the afternoon tea and it was simply brilliant, it's a lovely modern place with friendly atmosphere, sunny courtyard and raised terrace, with a welcoming front of house and bar, I'd recommend booking and I'd say you should definitely take the time to visit whether living on the island or just visiting, I'll be back for sure!

We'd had a quick look in The Blonde Hedgehog the day before and thought it looked beautiful, so today we went for tea and cakes. Everything was delicious (especially the hand made cakes - maybe the muffins came from elsewhere as they were a bit doughy) and the decor so stylish, spare and carefully chosen, without being in the least bit fussy. Plus dominoes, chess, draughts and backgammon in the snug! We'll be back. Prices reasonable and fair.

Stayed at the Blonde Hedgehog for 1 night . We stayed in “The Burrow” room. It was amazing , traditional roll top bath in the room, large shower room. The bed was very comfortable. The little extras such as quality bath salts, etc really made this a special place to stay. ALL the staff were amazing and couldn’t do enough to make sure our stay was enjoyable.

This was our 2nd visit to The Blonde Hedgehog and it didn't disapoint.
The rooms are fabulous and well looked after and the food in the restaurant is divine. Just be aware that pre booking the restaurant is essential. Would definitely recommend, not the cheapest place to stay in Alderney but this is a case of you get what you pay for.

Staying on Alderney for the first time and heard about The Blonde Hedgehog. Top rate food and warm friendly service. Liked the decor and feel of the whole place. Lovely loos too! Had the lobster fish cake and duck main course. Generous cheese too for dessert course - with very interesting and unusual cheeses. Loved it. Thank you.

We had the most fabulous stay at the blonde hedgehog a couple of weekends ago. We travelled up to Alderney with a group of friends from Guernsey for a long weekend, from start to finish we were totally blown away by just how wonderful this place is! From the moment we walked through the door, we were greeted with the warmest of welcomes! Both Cindy & April went above and beyond to make us feel welcome & made the whole check-in process seamless & really efficient. The Hotel itself is absolutely stunning! The whole feel & vibe of the place is one of classic class, elegance & luxury, whilst also being extremely cosy and inviting at the same time. Our room was amazing (we stayed in the Burrow), and the bed was sooooo comfy I never wanted to leave! We enjoyed an evening meal, breakfast & teatime drinks in the bar during our stay, and have to say, the food drinks and ambience of the bar & restaurant was fantastic! Very relaxed atmosphere & outstanding food! Every dish we ordered was to the highest of standards! Carefully thought out to showcase an array of the finest ingredients put together in well executed & delicious dishes (where possible, showcasing exquisite local ingredients!) Seriously, I would have eaten in the restaurant every day of our stay if I could have! I would highly recommend staying and dining at the blonde hedgehog to anyone! We’re already looking forward to our next visit I cannot wait to stay again! On behalf of myself and our group of friends we visited with, we would like to say a very big thanks to all the Blond Hedgehog team, for making us feel so welcome and looking after us! (special shout out to Cindy April and Sophie too! You guys are absolute stars!). Here’s to our next stay with you very soon! Best wishes Gemma Lainé-Sparkes & Co!

This is a relatively new boutique hotel in the centre of town in Alderney. We have visited twice for short stays in the last couple of months and have been consistently satisfied with the standard of the food and the rooms. Staff are efficient, friendly and helpful. The rooms are fitted to the high standard one would expect for the premium costs although one gets value for money.
Throughly recommended for a very different location.

We arrived very early at the Blonde Hedgehog (our second visit) and despite this we were welcomed beautifully by the staff. we had a lovely breakfast and then went off for a walk in the beautiful sunshine. Sadly the weather changed after that, but we still enjoyed our stay enormously. Dinner was excellent on both nights that we ate there.

A really lovely afternoon tea in the conservatory that serves as a dining room. The staff were helpful and knew the menu well. Sandwiches were tasty especially the smoked salmon. The chocolate bites were loaded with flavour. Overall an amazing experience and well worth doing! Good value

We recently travelled to the Northern Isle Alderney, booked the Blonde Hedgehog and from the time we arrived at 9.15 in the morning we were made welcome, our room was not ready as you expect at this time of the day, our bag was taken from us and Che k in all completed, we then told we could have a breakfast if we wished, but had decided to go for a walk, popped back after lunch out and about and checked the room out EXCELLENT is the only way to describe it. Stayed in various hotel over the world and this was among the best. In our package at the hotel two evening meals were included so booked in for dinner, again from the time we walked into the bar the staff could not have been more helpful, the food again could not be faulted.
Breakfast agin was the normal breakfast bar and offering of cooked dishes served by staff you had been seen in doing various jobs in the Hotel the day before.Have to say this was an absolute super break in a super hotel on a super Island which was made better being blessed in sunshine and so easy to get there by a super service being offered by Auringy.

This was our second stay at this hotel and we enjoyed it just as much this time. We stayed in one of their 2 suites this time and it was very nice and spacious.with a large bathroom. The food in the restaurant is superb and very imaginative. The staff are all so friendly and made us feel so welcome. We will be back.

Superb in every respect. Room, bathroom, restaurant, decor, quality of service and ambiance. All top class. Only niggle is there could be more wardrobe space. Well positioned for St Anne's bustling high street with its shops, bars and restaurants.
A walking circumnavigation of the island takes about five hours with a stop on the way and is well worth the effort. The nine hole golf course is a very good challenge and non members are always welcome.
If you are hardy the sea swimming in crystal clear water is excellent.
