Being so central in St. Anne, The Old Tea Room is the ideal house from which to explore the whole of Alderney on foot.  Welcoming,  attractively furnished and spacious, this holiday home provides everything you need.  And all your self-catering requirements are just minutes from the front door.  A wonderful place to stay on a very special island. - Clive and Angela, May 2016

  • The Old Tea Room is in a perfect location. We found that with our 3 children and our doggie it suited us very well indeed. It was exceptionally clean, light and homely. It was well equipped and has an added bonus of a sunny raised patio area with seating too. Charlie and Roland were very helpful at every stage from our first inquiry, right up until our arrival. There are beautiful walks within minutes from the house and the supermarket and main shopping street is very handy, There are lots of eateries available to enjoy also. We were very impressed with the beautiful beaches and loved the relaxed feel of Alderney. We would love to return one day ! Thank you so much for helping to make our holiday so enjoyable. Regards Jo and Rob Wilton

  • Absolute treat to stay in such a delightful house with everything we needed. Alderney proved an interesting place to stay and we were lucky enough to get places on a boat trip with Roland to see the Puffins. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.....Many Thanks

  • Dear Sir. We arrived home about three hours ago and I wanted to take this opportunity to say a big thank you for helping us have a great relaxing week in your cottage. It was just what we were looking for with the number of bedrooms and the quirky layout making it a most memorable place. We did everything , and more, that we had planned to do and found ourselves quickly relaxing into Alderney time.
    It was very kind of your brother to meet us on arrival and point us in the right direction for things to do.
    Thanks once again from a very grateful Saunders family

  • Cette grande maison était parfaite pour notre séjour à Aurigny avec nos deux petits enfants, et ce grand beau temps qui nous a été accordé pendant cette semaine-là.
    Proche de l'Office de tourisme, des commerces, ce fut une base agréable et pratique pour nos balades quotidiennes, et parfois nocturnes, qui nous ont occupé tout le long de ces quelques jours.
    L'équipement du gîte est très bon, facile d'usage et agencé de façon très agréable. Bravo. Et merci.

  • We very much enjoyed our visit to Alderney and old friends. The Old Tea Room has everything one wants, is very comfortable and well looked after. Roland and Charlie are easily accessible for all your questions and problems. We recommend it to everyone.

  • Had a really great holiday in your beautiful house. The house was really lovely and all the furnishing and bedding was top notch. The house was really cosy and we were really looked after well by Roland, who even picked us up from the airport and bought us some essential foods to keep us going until the shops were open on Monday. The house is perfectly positioned bang in the middle of town. Loved the Island and ate far too much in the local restaurant and bars. Went on loads of lovely walks and spent every morning looking in rock pools on the beautiful beaches. Will certainly be back

  • We had a lovely stay at ‘the Old Tea Rooms’ and Alderney, we had really needed a break from the day to day going’s on of home life, so it was nice to be able to enjoy great scenery, history, good food and beer at the various local establishments. Your home was very welcoming and had all we needed and more. Your brother Roland and sister in-law Caroline were very welcoming and very helpful to us. I shall definitely recommend your accommodation and may be back another time.

  • "I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you all for the wonderful holiday we enjoyed in August. My family had fantastic time; we know Alderney quite well and we were delighted to be able to stay in such a central and authentic townhouse (made the more so by the German additions!) this year. Throughout the process you were very helpful and Roland provided excellent help & assistance throughout our stay. We have booked already for next year - the utmost testament!" The Roberts Family

  • Just e-mailing you to say we all got home safely yesterday after a fabulous holiday..Thanks to you and to Roland for looking after us so well. We loved the house, the island, the beaches and, of course, the forts!
    We also very much enjoyed watching your films, which, I thought, were a lovely piece of social history. Nothing brings history home as much as personal stories, both touching and random. I could really picture High street running with rats and roofless! My mum was very touched by it too. It brought back memories of her own time in Jersey in the war and of seeing her father again for the first time in 6 years (she was born in 1936 and her father spent the war years in East Africa, having sent them home to Jersey to be safe and because my gran was pregnant!)..

    Anyway, thanks to you all and best wishes for the future...We will be back!
