Duke Of Richmond - Guernsey
The Duke of Richmond Hotel stands on the site originally occupied by what is generally accepted to be Guernsey’s oldest hotel - in Berry’s History of Guernsey, dated 1815, there is a charming engraving of Grover’s Hotel, and this appears to be on the exact site of the present building.
The hotel was named after the Third Duke of Richmond, who as Master of the Ordnance had commissioned the famous map of the island of Guernsey in 1769. In 1977 further extensive development resulted in the building of a new sea-view facing block for its rear rooms, four of which had balconies. Various upgrades and on-going refurbishment continued throughout the next thirty four years. Red Carnation Hotels acquired it in 2011 and totally refurbished it once again.
