evening meals well worth staying in for,enjoyed relaxed atmosphere.location -plentiful coastal paths walks,coastline spectacular.
Lovely location. Guest house has character. Rooms were quite spacious with en-suit shower, toilet etc. Breakfast was good. Couple who run this guest house were freindly and hospitable. Breakfast is served at 9am, which is quite late if guests are keen to go out and about early. We did arrange to have an earlier breakfast on the days that we needed to be at a convention in St Helier at around 9am, but sensed that this was an inconvenience.
the weather was fantastic the undercliffe also fantastic could not stay long enough
It is a family-owned guesthouse where we were met with a very kind reception. We had a nice room with a beautiful view. The location at Boulay Bay is great. You can start walking the cliff path or relax at the beach. Nice pub nearby as well. we liked the personal atmosphere. Thanks for the nice stay. The breakfast time is late. But not really a problem. Just tell the people know and you get it earlier.
Ida went out of her way to make us welcome and to explain the food arrangements.We are both Vegetarian and were looked after very well. Car parking was tight the whole week, and was situated on a very tight bend. The road to and from the hotel was steep and full of bends. There were no signposts that we saw leading down to the hotel.
The peace and tranquillity of its environment. The private and independent access to the room without having to go through reception The £15 charge for paying with a credit card
Everyone at guest house friendly and very helpful. Loved the location and felt very welcomed and relaxed. Ida and Richard run a great value for money cosy and welcoming place. Would definitiely recommend to others. The place was so clean, the food was good, Richard is a great cook, you should try an evening meal, great value for money and delicious! The situation is beautiful, fantastic cliff walks and a wonderful pebbled beach. You should mention on booking if not so able as the stairs are a little steep. There was ample parking across from guest house. They went out of their way to give us a great holiday. Thanks! Not much to dislike! The guest house is on a hill so again if you are not so able it could be difficult. My mum couldn't manage the hill so I just dropped her off in the car at the bottom and then parked the car at the top again and the same to collect her, it's only a few minutes walk to the car park so not really a problem! I would advise car hire if at Bouley Bay or for anywhere in Jersey to get the best of the island. Over all, we loved the place!
Very Friendly Owners. Beautiful Location. Very Pretty Rooms and guest house. We had a sea view from our bedroom. Pretty dining room and good selection for a continental breakfast, at a very respectable 9am (or earlier if you wish). Very Clean throughout. There is parking available opposite the guest house. There is a swimming pool which would be lovely in summer. No sink in toilet/shower ensuite, therefore you had to wash your hands after visiting the toilet by using the sink in the bedroom. Unfortunately they had trouble with the ultra violet water filtration system when we were there so we couldn't drink the water from the taps. However they did leave us bottled water each day to make a drink.
The friendly and efficient staff - genuinely interested in where we were coming from and what we wanted to do in the area. Delicious and well presented breakfast. Good location for goingn on walks, and enjoying the quieter side of the island.
The hotel was quiet and relaxing and had good eating facilities on site which were realistically priced and a varied menu was available.The staff were helpful and friendly, and the accomadation and food were good value for money, we enjoyed our stay. The hotel was a distance from the main town and the bus service was approximately every 2 hours and for those not hiring a car it was a little inconvient.
The hotel staff were wonderful and helpful. The room did not have a fridge so the person on the desk put my baby's milk in theirs overnight as I went down late to ask. The next day there was a fridge put in the room and the baby's milk was in it. The person who cleaned the rooms saw my baby's clothes soaking when she cleaned the room and took them, laundered them and they were folded on the bed when we returned from our day out. Rooms are clean and spacious. Breakfast was really good and the food in the restaurant great but pays to book this in advance as it fills up. The hotel is a way out of town if you don't have a car it would be inconvenient however we had one and didn't want to be in town so it was great.
Decent accomodation, with helpful staff and good food No internet access
Clean hotel in a convenient location for us. staff always friendly.
Warm welcome as usual, Fantastic food in bar/restaurant. Comfy room. Wi-Fi, Great value for money!
The staff are suberb, great location near shops beach and counrtyside, excellent restaurants at oaklands lodge, will stay again, loved it. N/A
Breakfast was excellent, and the lady who served was friendly, attentive and courteous, wishing us a good day as we left the dining room. Some of the hallway lights seem to be controlled by motion sensors, and while they are environmentally sound the one outside our room flickered on and off for some time before eventually staying on. In addition, there was a private party in the dining room on the last night of our stay. The music was loud until around 12.30 and then the guests were noisy when they left via the car park. Not a good experience when we had to leave before 6am.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.. Room clean and comfortable and a very well cooked breakfast in the morning. There is also a pub attached to the hotel which is used by locals - food and atmosphere very good.
Food was really good, especially the pub meals. staff work very hard, especially in the pub Some of the plumbing eg the shower/bath selector switch was a bit liable to suddenly pop out, and the hot water was very very hot even if mixed with large amounts of cold . also double bed was two single lashed together
I liked the location, the food was good and the staff were excellent. No, as I would use it again
The bathroom was stunning.
The sea view room was well worth the extra money. Good food and attentive service. The loud music in the bar where we were going to eat but decided against this. And went out instead.
Good central position, even with alterations taking place the hotel did very well to not let this effect our experience and enjoyment. i felt the staff serving on the were not aware of who was being attended to, a lot of people were trrying to get their attention , myself having to wait over 10minutes to place food orders and drinks.
The staff at the Grand Jersey were exceptional. Throughout our stay I can say we did not have one complaint during our week. Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived until the time that we left. The food was lovely, breakfast service was wonderful and room service was a real treat! The Spa was fully booked quite often and it was very difficult to book treatments, however this is merely because the Spa is very good and it only reminded us to book in advance next time!
All staff were very helpful during our stay and very accommodating. The food was very good. Room very comfortable with very good facilities. Not having a sea view!
The hoel staff were extremely friendly and always willing to help - they appeared to really enjoy their emplyment. Everything was fine - one of the best htoel stays I've had for a long while
Good central location in st.Hellier Modernisation has not yet been completed
I enjoyed using the spa facilities, and the food was excellent.
good parking, friendly staff,
The leisure facilities
it was very good value for money at £29.00 B&B for a double room, however at that price it is a gamble, breakfast was fine, but not a gormet exprience, poached eggs cooked well and the hot breakfast was cooked to "order" - not under arc lights The shower was tempremental, either a faulty regulator or distantance from the boiler, hot water always came, eventually... First time took 5 mins, In asking for another room then I learnt half the hotel has been refurbished and half hasnt, we rejected the other two rooms offered (stained filthy carpets as opposed to wood laminate flooring) and perservered with the shower
Clean room and comfortable beds Good and varied breakfast and quick service Having just returned home I discovered that I had left a valuable ring in my room, after inquiring about it, I have received a call to say it has been found and will be sent on. I am delighted! Small rooms Lots of little stairs, a bit of a warren
All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and airy with comfy beds and the breakfast was excellent with a good choice. The swimming pool and jacuzzi were a real treat and great to relax in- we had them completely to ourselves! The hotel is just across the road from the beach and is about a mile from the centre of St Helier. On the evening we stayed in, the hotel bar lacked atmosphere with football on the television and the bar food was very basic (the fresh beer battered fish had obviously been frozen), however we did visit out of season and the restaurant was closed.
Hotel was good for bed and breakfast, rooms clean and a good bar. Only problem was the lack of packing space,
Large comfortable bed, clean bedroom and public areas, fried breakfast was well cooked and presented. Staff not proffessionally dressed some building leaks were clearly evident when rained. Cold buffete choice limited, Bathroom and some internal ares dated.
Friendlyness and very helpful staff, nothing was too much trouble to make our stay comfortable Had to ask for the items mentioned in welcome pack as were not ready in accomadtion, eg , hair dryer, phone . Also towels were very worn out eg large holes in one or two and frayed
Well run hotel that enabled us to have a relaxed break in Jersey
The breakfast was very good. The Hotel room was very very tired and old.
The bar area and breakfast were very good with the staff very helpful and the bonus of friday jazz night. The noise from the saturday night party [wedding] in our room  was very annoying.
Friendliness of staff
The convenience of being near to St Helier and also a good setting off point to other parts of the island.
kindness and helpfulness of staff
Staff were excellent - nothing was too much trouble
Lovely hotel, pleasant staff, excellent rooms, food superb in the Montana Restaurant, nice cosy lounge and bar
very easy & central for exploring island. room we had was very cold in the evening,heating in room failed.
Staff were helpful, but communication could be difficult as English was not their first language.
Friendly TV Reception
Friendly, helpful staff and good, comfortable facilities. I would have liked an easy chair / setee in my room.
breakfast was brill and the reception staff were very helpful trying to get me to were i wanted I thought the food at night time was a bit exspensive
the spa and pool facilities. the quality of the buffet
The spa Restaurants rather expensive
A building of character well maintained Not the comfiest bed
very friendly staff, they made me feel very welcome. I had a single room and i have never had such a small room for the money. i plan to look at alternative hotels for my next visit.
Very friendly staff. Good customer service. High standard accomodation.
my wife and i enjoyed are stay at the hotel, very nice clean comfortable and the staff very friendly and helpful. i read a couple of reviews about the hotel before booking and they seemed a bit disappointed with the hotel but personally we did enjoy are stay and would definitely come back.
Excellent food, well served. The heating/air conditioning system, which was difficult to control, leading to disturbed sleep.
I liked the location (being close to both the harbour, st. helier and the bus station). I wouldn't really recommend it for a long stay with children, as the pool was quite small and not really aimed at children. The Merton Hotel is where we usually stay (when travelling with the children) and that is fantastic for them. However, for adults only the Radisson and The Royal Yacht are both fantastic for a stay in Jersey. The rooms are excellent and beds very comfortable, staff very friendly and helpful too. The mini bar only had two bottles of water in it. That's about it really!
The location was perfect,the cleaniless was excellent.The breakfast was first class with plenty of choice.My partner and I would gladly visit again. We liked it all!!
The view overlooking the harbour and the buffet breakfast. The sauna and steam room were an added welcome after a days' walking The smell of fish in the evening as you enter the lobby. This was every evening and not very pleasant
all the staff were polite and nothing was too much trouble. the food was excellent. the standard room we had was 1st class. well done it would have been nice to have had a nice draft hand pull beer as an option in the bar.
Lovely room, great ocean view, freindly staff at spa, good bar area, Very average breakfast, staff on reception and in dining room not very freindly or helpful, waiting room for spa area felt like a dentist's surgery, treatment rooms very claustrophobic
Nice quiet and relaxing hotel where you could chillout
The hotel is located in an excellent central position with very helpful and friendly staff. The city certre is a walk away as is the ferry port. We had a wonderful stay.
The view of the harbour was excellent both from our room and the bar area. The scrambled egg on the breakfast buffet looked as if it was composed of chopped up boiled eggs from the previous day.
Staff extremely helful Didn't like having to wait to be seated for breakfast, especially out of season
It has a great sense of history, individual style, attention to detail, and the guests comfort comes first.
It was a one night stay for business. Ideal. The car alarm that went of at 0300 and kept going off!!
Staff everywhere in the hotel were better than first class. Reception was fast and helpful when needed. Patrick in the bar was low key but effective, efficient, with a great timing for the next round. Finally, serving staff for breakfast could not have been better. Narrow bath and a light-weight shower curtain means that anyone taking a shower finds themselves trying to hold the shower curtain at a distance and work the shampoo with one hand. Rust points at the top of the bath safety bar made it look fragile. Room 305 is rather tiny to be classed as "Executive". In Europe it would be an ordinary room at around 90 Euros per night (but without the Pomme d'Or top-class breakfast).
Location of hotel is good. Choice of restaurants and food.
Just what i have said here. Clean, high quality and very friendly. Our company uses it all the time and I can see why.
Very pleasant and efficient staff, on arrival, excellent room very clean and spacious, food was excellent again served by pleasant and efficent staff. Kept awake most of the night by party goers outside, two sets of double glazing did nothing the dull the noise and we were on the fifth floor.
The comfort of the room and high quality of food presented at breakfast and evening buffets
The common areas, cuisine and location. The shower was inadequate, the bath took ages to fill and there was no mirror suitable for short-sighted people.
Very helpful staff and the location was excellent small room and bathroom
The Food, The Honesty Bar the Staff..all good
There was a very friendly and tranquil atmosphere. Most relaxing
Very good hotel, service and staff great and in a good location.
freebies + use of spa, excellent hotel facilities everything was great
the fact you were made to feel so elcome and nothing was too much trouble but with out being hassled.
Our room was clean and well equipped and inviting to return to after a busy day. The situation of the hotel was perfect for our requirements ie closeness to shops yet very peaceful in rooms. Staff very helpful and obliging. Didn't like restricted times for using pool, not that we used it but we might have done if we could have used it at any time - if we had booked a spa treatment, we could have used it any time on that day.
Attention to customer needs
The spa was wonderful. The manager has a somewhat snotty attitude when checking out. I was asked twice if I had taken anything from the fridge.
the staff was extremely friendly and the rooms clean and comfortable booking a spa hotel i expect to be able to use the spa, but this is only open to guests 8-10am during breakfast and 6-8pm when you would like to get ready to eat. unless you book a treatment then you can use through the day. could not eat in the hotel at all restaurants was either closed or booked , but no advice on booking the hotel to make sure this is booked prior to arrivals
All staff on reception were more than helpfull didn't like the view out of our window
Efficiency and helpfulness of the staff, indoor pool and jacuzzi, set menu for evening meal was value for money and well presented. On departure the room across from ours was being cleaned, we were surprised at how big this room was compared to ours
The hotel was in a good location,the breakfast was very good,the staff freindly, The room could have been cleaner
Staff were friendly and helpful Single room was very small and I had to change to a double
big bed in single room and swimming pools
Very accommodating staff with indoor swimming pool
Breakfasts were very good No atmoshere in dining room for evening meal, and compared to breakfast , dinner was very poor
Excellent priced package Room a little dated and in need of refurbishment - pink bathroom suite!
the rooms need updating and revamping
excellent value for money breakfast was very good had everything you needed, was hot and presented very well the sauna had been closed and i stayed at the apollo last year and was not informed of this change but only a miner hitch didnt spoil my stay
Ideal for our trip which was to attend a ruby game and my first visit to Jersey.
The staff were exceptional. Friendly, Helpful, always at hand to help with any ideas of how best to enjoy your stay. In comparision to other establistments in the imediate area the menu in the Zephur bar was not great and not good value, which put us off eating in any of the other bar/resturaunt in the hotel.
Staff was excellent at all levels. Noise from karioke pub in square for room with harbour view.
Staff extremely accomodating. Room very comforterable. Location excellent. Food and dining and facilitiites good. Quick response to any of our needs.
food was very good need much better coffee in the rooms, forget fair trade try quality
Accessability. helpfulness of reception staff and porters. Cheerfulness of restaurant staff especially when under pressure. Accommodation charges particularly those applying to premier rooms are on the high side.
Staff approach to customers fantastic, customer service very high nothing too much bother. Its nice to see staff smile.
the staff are all very friendly not baby friendly
THe staff wre extremely welcoming, hotel had a real presence about it with a great selection of bars and restaurants
very comfortable bed and good breakfast close to opera house for concert.
Toured the island of Jersey.
Rooms tidy well appointed and clean
The politeness of all the staff members.
Staff were fantastic - courteous and nothing was too much trouble. Even got a room upgrade without asking! Room was fantastic - didn't want to leave it!!! Food was great too. Shame I was there for business but would definitely recommend to anybody who'd like a romantic/relaxing getaway! Will definitely return!!! Cost if you book directly seemed much higher than booking via this website.
- Quality to bedroom and bathroom - Little things like our name on the brochure when we arrived, the bottles of champagne and water waiting for us, the attention to details! One of the best experience I had in a hotel of this category. The battery of the remote control was dead.
The service. The staff was realy willing to help They should be able to speak more fluent english
The food and service was exceptional. very relaxing and restfull Would have liked coffee and tea making in rooms did not have a shower only a bath
The staff made you feel very welcome and catered for all your needs. The food was excellent even for vegetarians! Our Dogs were treated as guests which is a nice change!
Excellent service wonderful swimming pool and great tennis court.
Spacious rooms, gourmet food, gardens,pool and unobtrusive staff
Freedom and security of no crime and it location Breakfast: no choice for vegeterian, tea cold, no brown bread orange juice watered down.
Food excellent Beds - springs on bed were so warn I could feel every spring, and was only a 4ft 6 in bed (partner over 6 ft., so the bed too small). Had to sleep on the floor the first night because of the bed springs. When complained they moved us to another room. Rooms very dated, and tired, and overheated without air conditioning were stifling.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall the hotel was very quiet.
the facilities and the location were excellent...and value for money Breakfast service was very poor; asked on 2 days to share table with other guests - whilst there were plenty of clean tables available; no courtesy in asking us or the couple we were to share with...annoyed us quite a lot when the head waiter would not even listen..should have complained and would have done if staying more than 3 days. He actually spoilt the start to the day.
I thought the reception staff were helpful and the hotel has just recently been decorated and is now very modern. The cocktail bar prices were the same as the local pubs and i was expecting it to be more. We did not get a chance to visit the pool but from what we saw it is a shame we didn't make the time. The location was excellent and near all the shops, beaches and pubs. I could not fault the housekeeping they were great. Apart from the breakfast it should be a 3 star not a 2 star. The breakfast was terrible. We were given one sausage, one slice of bacon, fried egg, some mushrooms and a tomatoe. Not enough for me but maybe for a 5 year old. The service was slow for it not being busy as it had just opened its doors at 8 am, we were finaly seen to after 15 minutes. It will not stop me from advising friends and family to visit the Mayfair.
The accommodation was clean and very comfortable staff were friendly staff in dining room were very efficient
the atmosphere was one of welcome, and although I am single I liked the fact that it was very much family orentated. the staff could not do enough for you.
Location. Lack of air conditioning, poor sound proofing, hotel has seen it's best years, breakfast was modest at best, parking places were small and almost always occupied.
Pleasant surroundings, convenient for exploring the area and within walking distance of centre of town.
A warm welcome....and comfort in all areas of the hotel. A great location and would certainly return.
The total efficiency of the staff
The dinners were excellent, the staff very helpful and the sitting rooms welcoming. However, the above reference to offensive language is itself, offensive. The absence of a service charge - I find the request for gratuities rather embarrassing.
Everything about our stay at the Somerville Hotel was very nice and we thoroughly recommend the hotel.
The hotel was perfectly situated to explore the island and the staff were very helpful in making sure what they could offer was their best. My room was situated at the back of the hotel which was noisey and could be a negative to other guests
The Hotel is stunning, and has views across the bay, the food was first class and silver service to match, but be aware that there is a steep hill up to the hotel from the harbour and limited parking available in the town, the hotel does have ample parking and on a wet day the staff even appeared in the car-park with umbrellas, I would strongly recommend this hotel.
Staff were wonderful. Food was also very good. Lovely stay.
excellent location, very friendly and helpful staff and very good menu.
Service was generally good Breakfast service was erratic, depending on where we sat. Some tables seem to fall in 'no-man's land' between teams of waiters. Breakfasts get left under the warming lamps, rather than delivered to the table.
The views from the hotel are spectacular and close to restaurants
It was a great location. Some of the staff were not that great at customer service. Eg, when ording drinks and food etc.
We stayed in a Superior Ocean View Room - fabulous views directly over St Brelades Bay from the big bed and also the good sized balcony. Staff were very friendly, attentive (but not overly so) and helpful and really tried hard to make your stay enjoyable. Both the bedroom and the bathroom were well appointed. The only thing I would change would be the force of the water coming out of the shower - everything else was perfect.
The view from the room was fantastic, the staff were very helpful and very professional. We had a fantastic meal - totally wonderful, it definately deserves its double rosette rating. We would definately stay there again ! No.
Good facitlities in an excellent location Th pillows were rather hard but were changed for softer ones when requested
Lovely room overlooking a beautiful bay. Excellent food and service.
clean friendly v. relaxing
The location overlooking the beach was excellent. We felt the comfort and ambience were good. Nothing. Only there for one night and no problems
The staff were most helpful and were always willing to assist us. I particularly liked the health suite as it was always open and never too busy.Most relaxing. Nothing to add here.
Staff were helpfull. great beach location yet still well conected to the City center Spa is very basic. For a Hotel named 'L'horizon Hotel & Spa' we expected much more from the spa than we really found.
Exxtremely friendly, fantastic views over the bay - even from the swimming pool and jacuzzi. Had a very "comfortable" feel. Like the fridge and free bottled water and the turndown service when tea and coffee was also replenished. Cost of drinks was quite high in bar/restaurant
Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts very very nice. Location perfect. Wireless connection very good.All very welcoming Room 35 - bed nearest window very soft - too soft, needs replacing. Towel rail heater not working, otherwise room fine.
The room was lovely, the hotel staff were polite and welcoming, and breakfast was very delicious. Everything was just excellent!
Welcoming and friendly staff throughout, dealt with problems speedily. Good swimingpool and attractive building. Unfortunately, the heating of the swiming pool was switched off half way through our stay - ie before end of September. Shower in the bathroom was poor - several outlets seemed blocked. Also shower gels not replaced when empty - had to request replacements. Only 4 TV channels and no radio in room.
Excellent food, friendly efficient staff, very clean rooms Nothing comes to mind
Nice and quiet, nice staff, super location. It's a pity about the TV reception though None
Over priced for the quality of hotel.
Very helpful staff...very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere
Excellent room with good facilities Friendly reception staff
Quiet relaxed atmosphere Some areas of the hotel are in need of updating
Lovely hotel, friendly and very helpful staff, free lift to and from the airport Low pressure on shower
