Coronavirus (COVID-19) Latest Information

During these uncertain times caused by the rapid spread of the coronavirus, and on behalf of The Bella Team, I want to reassure guests and customers of our firm commitment to you.

We know that all companies and markets have been affected by the current situation. Travel and supplies to and from the Islands are now also being effected.

The health and safety of all guest and staff is most paramount.

The hotel has been closed for the winter season, and we have liaised with all our staff both overseas and locally, and for their safety and that of our customers we have decided to review our re-opening for the summer season:

We will now re-open May the 1st 2020 and not April 1st as previously planned.  We will continue to review and post updates on our website and social media accounts as they arise.

All existing reservations and bookings for April will be contacted ASAP to make alternative arrangements. 

All future hotel and restaurant bookings, and general queries should be directed through:  [email protected] / 01481 238764

Lé Viaër Marchi

Each year, on the evening of the first Monday of July, Guernsey celebrates its unique culture and heritage at Lé Viaër Marchi.  Both locals and tourists attend “The Old Market”, and if your visit to Guernsey coincides with the event then it is well worth a visit.  Held in Saumarez Park from 5pm until sunset it features performances by traditional musicians, singers and dancers, and demonstrations of local crafts such as making traditional willow lobster pots and lace weaving that showcase the way that islanders lived in times past.  The perimeter of the park is lined with food and drink stalls selling Guernsey specialties such as bean jar and gâche, or local produce such as fresh oysters, honey, cheeses, ice cream and cider.  Grazing your way around the various food stalls and taking in the craft demonstrations is a lovely way to spend a summer’s evening and will give you a great insight into Guernsey’s rich culture.

Part local market and part summer fete, Lé Viaër Marchi is organised by The National Trust of Guernsey and many locals attend wearing traditional dress.  Entry to the 2017 Lé Viaër Marchi costs £6, and is free for children under the age of fifteen accompanied by an adult.
