We are a team that works hard and plays hard. Alderney is a special place that has a community feel and a great social life which The Moorings and The Georgian House are central to. If you come to Alderney you are guaranteed to make some fantastic and unforgettable memories.

‘Everyone on the island winds up at The Georgian House at some point, having Normandy moules and cider in the garden and later singing sea shanties and dancing like nobody's watching to live bands. The restaurant is possibly Alderney's best, and there are four new rooms upstairs added by young owner Holly Chandler, who divides her time between Alderney and the Alps, accounting for such cosmopolitan oddities as lobster sliders and Farrow & Ball paint.’
