Sylvania and Beryl who both run Bernique Guest House gave me a warm welcome and a lot of gracious hospitality and assistance. The rooms are cleaned every day, are basic and have no wifi access at the moment. There are no safes provided inside the rooms at Bernique Guest House but there is a safe on the premises and Sylvania kept my valuables in there very safely so Bernique Guest House was very trustworthy.
But the best thing about Bernique Guest House is their breakfasts. They serve up such beautiful, fresh and locally sourced food every morning for their guests between 8 AM to 9 AM. The fruit plate changes every morning and the flavours of Sylvania's homemade fruit jams and preserves change every morning. Each morning Sylvania will offer something different such as Belgian waffles, banana bread, crepes, etc. along with fresh homemade tropical juices. She may offer a choice of a fried egg or an omelette. Even the coffee at Bernique Guest House tastes absolutely beautiful and so smooth.
I loved it there and will miss it all ESPECIALLY their fantastically made breakfasts *sigh*

Beautiful island with lovely beaches strewn with beautiful granite boulders. Really fun to cycle around the island on rental bikes.
Probably the best located hotel on the island we thought.
We stayed in the "Orchid" superior room. The room was slightly tacky but the view from the balcony was probably the best on the island we thought as it looked down onto the beautiful beach below.
Evening meals were good.
Breakfast OK but nothing to write home about .
The restaurant manager (from Sri Lanka) was excellent - a very friendly chap, who really made our stay at Patatran very special. We would give him 10 out of 10 for hospitality.
Only thing really to complain about was the exchange rate the hotel levied on our final bill... on top of the government restaurant tax (5-10%) we'd already signed for, as we paid at the hotel desk at the end of our stay (rather than directly at the restaurant after the meal), they charged another 10% government tax + their credit card machine only worked in euros (rather than seychelles rupees) and the hotel forced an exchange rate on us that was 15% worse than anywhere else on the island => not happy with this => make sure you pay for your restaurant meals in local currency at the time of eating

The manager was great, very attentive and helpful. Check-in and out was easy. . Beautiful small boutique hotel on a beautiful island, which not much to do yet so much to see. Definitely recommend for honeymooners or couples. They didn't do anything to celebrate our honeymoon which was disappointing and restaurant prices are high but the breakfast is amazing.There are only 6 rooms, very well appointed, there is a small plunge pool and a Jacuzzi. The beach in front of the hotel is nice, quiet. Its located on the opposite side, so no sunset but still a nice view. January is rainy season, the sea is rough and lots of algae. The staff at the hotel was very friendly.

The location was walking distance from the ferry. The problem was, there was no room for us even with a confirmed reservation . There had been a plumbing problem. They found a room for us that wasn't convenient or nearly as nice but made up for it with bicycles. The next afternoon, we did get a room at Oceane. It was large with an even larger bathroom. It had a shared kitchen (never saw anyone else use it) and a patio where we could eat. There was a communal cold tub - La Digue is Hot and Humid (no one else used it). In the future, each room will have its own outdoor kitchen. The proprietors couldn't have been nicer, even taking us the Grand Anse. They realized we'd never make it on bikes.
