To impress business clients, win a contract, and shake on that all-important deal, few venues beat The Duke of Richmond Hotel in Guernsey. Not only does the hotel offer state-of-the-art meeting facilities and an expert team of staff to ensure the smooth-running of your conference, it’s also excellently placed to enjoy the island’s spectacular scenery and activities. Clear your head between meetings on a charter boat and chase a day of successful meetings with a toast of something sparkling on the terrace. Here’s our pick of where to impress clients in Guernsey.
Sail out on the open seas
Little beats a breath of fresh sea air to clear your head after a morning of meetings. Take your clients out on a yacht to enjoy Guernsey’s sparkling coastline. The island has a wealth of tour operators offering various scenic excursions around the island. Alternatively, charter a private yacht to demonstrate your nautical skills and steer your meeting in exactly the right direction. Allow our concierge to arrange it for you.
Enjoy a wine and whisky tasting
Located within our sister property, The Old Government House Hotel & Spa, The Crown Club is a short stroll from St Peter Port’s quayside. Its relaxed ambience and smart antique décor make an elegant backdrop for a business lunch, complete with stunning views of the harbour. If your party includes oenophiles and whisky connoisseurs, the hotel’s tasting room is sure to appeal. From premium rare vintages to the finest single malts, our deluxe tasting experience is guaranteed to impress your clients in Guernsey.
Toast with Champagne on the terrace
In summer, the sun-soaked al-fresco terrace at The Duke of Richmond has the most coveted tables in Guernsey. To make the most of the sumptuous surrounds, indulge in our afternoon tea. A fresh selection of sandwiches and hot-from-the-oven scones are served with Guernsey butter and homemade preserves. Accompany it with a Champagne toast to a successful meeting.
Enjoy a historic change of scene
Pirates, diplomats, adventurers, generals, colonial governors and artists have all docked at Guernsey at some point in its history. Explore the island’s impressive trove of relics at Castle Cornet, an ancient royal fortress watching over the harbour. Alternatively, explore Victor Hugo’s Hauteville House. Dating back to 1856, a wander through this grand old home offers an immaculately preserved insight into the French writer’s life on the island.
Kick back with a cocktail masterclass
After a day of negotiations, kick back at the Leopard Bar. The bartenders are skilled at mixing classic favourites, whether that’s an impossibly smooth Old Fashioned or a Martini that’s muddled to perfection. For some real fun, the Leopard Bar’s mixologists offer masterclasses on request. Join them behind the bar to learn the art of your preferred tipple. Follow it with a sumptuous dinner in the adjoining Leopard Restaurant. For Guernsey’s freshest catch of the day, our kitchens offer a delicious menu of local fish and seafood.
