We were a middle aged couple dealing with an elderly relative in “end of life care” situation on the Island looking for an emotional life when life was against us.
Derek and the staff delivered beyond all our expectations and were simply exceptional.As someone who has visited the Island for two decades this is the best place by a golden mile, every thing is perfect and when my wife and l were in the depths of despair the Blonde Hedgehog gave us exactly the lift we needed. We will be forever grateful, you chaps are simply the best.

For our fourth year running with family for three nights in autumn half term. This lovely hotel still offers good food, friendly staff and well equipped accommodation in beautifully decorated rooms. Sitting rooms and dining room very attractively furnished.

I was put in this hotel for a three day business trip to the Island, and it was an absolute delight. Two breakfasts and two dinners showed a wide range of culinary skills and, where possible, local produce. The room was finished to a very high standard too, while keeping a homely feel. The thing that really made the stay was the kind and attentive staff - clearly enjoying what they do and looking out for the moment to do a little bit extra to make my stay special.
I very much hope I return to this lovely Island, and to the Blonde Hedgehog.

As a previous reviewer commented this place is faultless! Clearly a lot has been spent on the refurbishment and the food and service are to match. The Blonde Hedgehog compares favourably with both Rick Stein and The Pig on the Beach and must surely be the best on Alderney. Thank you for a memorable experience

Stunning and flawless. We had our post-wedding meal of “Feast Over Fire” at the hotel’s beautiful Frette Farm. Tracey and all the staff could not have been more helpful, and all of the food was of the best quality and so delicious. Would highly recommend BH to anyone visiting Alderney, or for anyone looking to come to this beautiful island to get married.

A lovely evening tasting some delicious Pan Asian food. Service was good as always. If you visit Alderney pop in for a nice treat in the morning or a meal you won’t be disappointed. If the weather is nice you can sit out in their garden.

The Blonde Hedgehog in Alderney is a superb boutique hotel with a wonderful restaurant managed by Alex and Sarin and a team of people who absolutely understand that success in the high end hospitality industry is all about satisfied customers. This is certainly the place to stay and eat in Alderney.
The accommodations are beautifully decorated and equipped to the finest detail. The gardens are landscaped and maintained to the same high standards.
However, it is the restaurant that truly excels. Breakfasts set a standard that many other hotel breakfast chefs should aspire to emulate. Dinners then up the ante even more. Service is professional and unobtrusively managed by Alex with matching bar service provided by Sarin. Then there is the chef and kitchen crew who can justifiably be proud of the dishes that come to table.
Yes, this is a glowing review. Other visitors must judge for themselves. For us, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Blonde Hedgehog and we are very pleased to highly recommend this hotel and restaurant.

Stayed in a bed a breakfast but had two dinners at the Blonde, both were excellent, staff are super. Stayed at these premises 2 years ago and were impressed and am pleased to say that the standards have continued to be excellent. On our last morning we called in for a coffee and nothing is to much hassle for the staff, they are excellent.

A phenomenal experience across the board: accommodation (we stayed in the separate house, “The Old Corner House”, with two small children), the restaurant, and the staff. We tried pretty much every dish on the menu and each was better than the next; you must have the peanut parfait for dessert. Everyone was so accommodating, always asking if we need anything and offering local tips. Alderney is a spectacular destination and this is the place to call home while here!!

Our first visit to Alderney ,and we chose the island and the Blonde Hedgehog based on a very favourable review in the Sunday Time last December . We were not disappointed . From the moment we stepped through the door to be greeted by the lovely Joe and taken to our beautiful suite, the whole 3 day experience has been a joy . Every single member of staff has been warm and friendly and happy to chat and a special shout out to the delightful Roxy who cleaned our room and went above and beyond to find me something I had been searching for on the island .
The restaurant was exceptional . A delightful room and interesting menu and we thought excellent value compared to what we would pay back on the mainland . Every dish we had was faultless . I hope they hold onto this chef and their staff as it makes this place so special . The decor throughout is tasteful and the rooms comfortable and enjoyable to be in. .
We stayed in the Le Marais Suite which was huge and had the best bathroom we’ve seen in a long time . We would love to come back with friends and perhaps stay in the cottage although it would be hard not to book the same suite again as it was fabulous . So many lovely touches , every hotel owner should take note !It is Definitely worth staying and dining at the Blonde Hedgehog- we will be sending all our friends !
