A Travel representative’s view of some of Jersey’s accommodations available.

La Place hotel:  It had a fresh, modern feel with granite walls in the reception area. The open dining room also had nice furniture. The hotel also had a conservatory which was a nice area for breakfast. Décor was in white, grey and purple colours. We saw various rooms which had double zip and link beds. I think this was a good idea as it meant there rooms could be either a double or a twin depending on the customer’s request. The rooms were of a good size although the older rooms which hadn’t been refurbished were out dated. The new rooms and lounge however were decorated in a contemporary way. There were some rooms with small terraces next to the pool which meant extra space for clients and this was at no extra charge however there were also some rooms with private terraces which meant an extra charge but allowed customers to have private outdoor space. The hotel had a medium size pool surrounded by concrete which was ok and a warm and clean feeling bar. The cottages at this hotel were lovely. They were really spacious and had a number of good size bedrooms with big bathrooms. Every cottage had its own seating outside and all the cottages had play stations, games and iPod docks which made it great for families. The kitchens had the latest mod cons and were large. La Place is suitable for families or groups mostly.

L’Horizon:  Another really nice hotel. The rooms had amazing beach views which are worth upgrading to. The superior suite had a big terrace which was a good private space for clients overlooking the beach. L’Horizon had a modern room décor, its pool was inside although had a big window facing the sea which made it have an outdoor feel. Inside the hotel there were lots of steps.

Golden Sands:  A simple hotel with bedrooms and a restaurant/cafe. There was no parking although a public car park opposite could be used and is around £3.50 per day.  There was direct beach access so for families with sea facing rooms they can watch their children on the beach. Some rooms had drop down beds which means that the children benefit from a proper bed and not a camp style bed. There was a mix of bathrooms and all the rooms were slightly different. A nice location, a simple hotel.

St Brelades bay hotel:  An older style hotel with some original features although had a modern twist. With nice gardens and a good size pool. This hotel is great for families as it also had various kids’ rooms for different ages. There was lots of storage in the bedrooms which had a pretty French style to them, with some nice finishing touches and decent size rooms. With a gym built on the back of the hotel although you will need to remember to check usage times.  It has a good location with the option to sit in the garden or to walk across the street and sit on the beach.

The Savoy: a lovely hotel. With a personal style of reception which makes you feel important. A small pool which is suitable for people who are only staying a few nights. The hotel is of a good standard throughout. The rooms were a good size, with a great bar and friendly service.

Hotel De France: A good master suite bedroom with enough space for 3 children. There was also a spa bath and good views which added to the appeal of the room. A range of bars, restaurants and cafés on site offering something for everyone. The spa wing was lovely as it was clean, modern and it is quiet as no children are allowed to stay in the wing. This hotel is great for families as they have kids clubs and good family rooms.

The Mayfair: A more old fashioned style of  hotel. Its standard double rooms were of a normal size. The bathrooms were all nice. The hotel has laundry rooms for its guests to use. It also had a nice size sun patio with nice furniture. It has a crèche and a good games room as well as an indoor pool which makes it ideal for families to visit. The disabled rooms had hand rails and a large space for wheelchairs. Entertainment was available most evenings.

The Apollo hotel:  Modern and clean with a few bars and restaurants. The restaurant used for breakfast and dinner was nice and modern as well as the bedrooms. It was in quite a busy area so paying for a pool view room would allow a more peaceful stay. The outdoor pool has a slide. And there is a cocktail bar and a pub on site.

The Metropole:  Had a nice warm ambience about it with entertainment provided every night in the high season. It has a nice garden area which was nice for people to sit out in. It also had some ground floor rooms which was good for people with walking difficulties.

The Radisson: Because it is part of a chain of hotels it has that hotel feel. The reception area had a massive fish tank and it felt very fresh and modern. It had nice views of the harbour from the reception and bar/restaurant areas. Rooms had 1 of 3 themes which were all modern and business like. They had some interconnecting rooms and the suites had lots of space and amazing panoramic views. I would suggest this to young couples and families.  It is also completely accessible for wheelchair users and rooms have enough space for them to manoeuvre.

The Merton: Certainly a sizeable hotel, It had an all inclusive feel and was very different to all the other hotels. It was a great family hotel. There were lifts in the hotel and had good size family rooms. There was kids clubs and a crèche as well as evening entertainment. The aqua dome facilities were an added extra, and it also has an American diner quite unique for Jersey!

The Hampshire:  A homely and modern hotel . The rooms are of a good standard and there was a range of single, double, ground floor and superior rooms. The bedrooms had big windows and lots of storage. The hotel had a nice an airy dining room with nice furniture. It had a very small lift

The Longueville Manor: Had lovely grounds and it felt very stately home, manor house feel. The swimming pool was quite small though. The bar had a warm feel to it and it felt very cosy. The rooms were grand and big adapting the original features of the building. We looked at a junior suite which had a bath in the bedroom for romantic breaks and a modern bathroom with a big walk in shower. The rooms were comfortable and furniture ranged from old to new. The family rooms had lots of space.

The Ambassadeur: Had a nice lounge area and bar which had entertainment 4 nights a week. The rooms with sea view had nice décor and big windows with lovely views.  There were a number of single rooms 2 with double beds. The family rooms were a good size. The hotel also had a games room, a good size outdoor pool and sun terrace as well as a big car park.

The Grand Jersey hotel: A lovely spa. The hotel had a champagne bar and nice décor through out which gave it a modern feel. In all the standard rooms there were fridges, books with nice bathrooms. The executive suites were nice with big spaces and had nice décor.
