Ilex Lodge apartments provide you with all you need for a quiet break or family holiday during the school holidays. A program to extend and refurbish the apartments over the last few years now give 2 bedroom/2 bathroom accommodation. To the south, which receives the sun from early until late, is the heated swimming pool (salt water chlorinated - open during the summer months) and lawn with sunbeds and picnic tables. There is also a BBQ area (for disposable bbq use) and waiting and information area. To the back of the apartments is a large grassed lawn with a childrens play area.
Ilex Lodge is situated in the Parish of St. Peter Port, inland from the busy town centre and harbour area. Tucked away behind residential properties in its own grounds with parking it gives a peaceful and tranquil setting for your holiday. Ilex is surrounded on three sides by lawns.
Five minutes walk from Ilex Lodge is Cambridge Park and the Beau Sejour Sports and Leisure Centre with it's indoor heated swimming pools and facilities for all sports: roller skating, outdoor bowls, squash, badminton, table tennis, hard court tennis, etc, also saunas, solarium, swings, roundabout, slides, children's playground etc. The shops and harbour of the St. Peter Port town centre are approximately fifteen minutes walk away and a late night shopper only a few minutes walk away. If you like good food St. Peter Port has a large number of restaurants that offer varied and excellent cuisine. Buses go to the town centre in one direction and in the other to the popular west coast bays of Cobo, Saline and Grandes Rocques with their fine sand, rocks to climb and pools to explore.

Quality Assessors Comments
After this assessment all the apartments at Ilex Lodge retain the previously held Four Star (Self-catering) rating for the following year. Positioned qualitatively toward the higher end of the Four Star (Self-catering) rating band. It is also extremely pleasing to report Gold Accolade will be awarded recognising the exceptional quality displayed within the Four Star (Self-catering) rating band.
Very little in the way of change this year, all continues to be extremely well maintained, unsurprisingly given the huge investment made here over the last few years.
Ilex Lodge remains peacefully and conveniently located, set in a chiefly residential area, within easy walking distance of all local amenities. All the apartments have access to the stunning heated, "salt water chlorinated" swimming pool, proudly sporting a wonderful floral display during the summer months. Sun bed custhions have been provided this year. All the apartments are extremely well maintained throughout.
As previously commented the appearance of the property has been totally transformed, a new, stunning terrace has been created with new outside furniture provided. New balcony has been constructed with stainless steel work. A new rubbish bin area has been created, cleverly hidden from guest view. The enlargement has allowed for extra easy seating (generic sofas), to be used in the living space and the creation of en-suite shower facilities in the front bedrooms. All apartments are newly furnished/decorated/floored throughout. Newly double glazed both at the front and the rear. Larger flat screen TV's have been sourced and fitted.
Under the 'fastidious' control of Carol, the onsite Housekeeper, all remains very much as previously viewed.
To reiterate, overall exemplary standards of cleanliness noted both inside and out.
High exacting stards of pesentation, attention to detail remain the 'hallmarks' observed.
Sandra Berry and Carol again deserve praise for the exceptional housekeeping standards they have maintained year on year.

CONDITIONS OF BOOKING
NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT - One third of accommodation cost on booking
BALANCE - Due two months prior to arrival and only refundable, less any charges incurred, if whole period is re-let.
CANCELLATION: The payment of a deposit denotes a contract and guests are advised to insure against the possibility of cancellation; if this does occur and the balance payment is due the amount outstanding must be paid in full.
No responsibility can be accepted for injury, or loss of personal effects, while on the premises.
We strongly advise you to take out insurance - Travel Insurance and Healthcare in the Channel Islands
Healthcare in Guernsey is provided by the Health & Social Services department and is outside of the UK National Health Service. The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is not valid in the Bailiwick. This means that most visitors from the UK will have to pay a fee for all services. Anyone travelling to the Islands, which include Guernsey, Jersey, Alderney, Sark and Herm, will be required to pay for medical treatment should they become ill or injured there after this date. Visitors should therefore take out adequate insurance before they travel and the policy should include cover for emergency medical expenses plus repatriation in order that all treatment costs can be claimed.
On payment of the deposit you accept the Terms of Booking as detailed below -
NO SMOKING POLICY - We have a strict no smoking policy inside the apartments. If it is noticed that someone is smoking inside the property the guest will be asked to leave immediately with no refund to their booking charge. A charge will be made if extra Housekeeping is required to eradicate the smell of smoke.
Loss of Apartment Key - A £20 charge will be made for loss or non return of key and key fob.
Anyone causing disturbance to other guests will be asked to leave immediately. Damage to the property will be charged at cost.
We ask that you leave the accommodation as you found it. We allocate a set time to service between each guest and if extra Housekeeping is required a charge will be made @ £13 per hour.
Any charges incurred due to damage or extra Housekeeping will be taken automatically from the card used to pay for your accommodation if payment is not settled before departure.
