I spent a wonderful long weekend in Jersey and was made most welcome by Carolyn. This was only my second holiday travelling by myself so of course I was a bit apprehensive. I made friends and family laugh by sending messages home excited because in my room I had all the old home comforts! I had among other things, free... More

Stayed for 1 week in June 14 with my wife and 2 friends. Rooms were very nice. Breakfast was plentiful and a good selection for a hot breakfast. All in all Jersey is a wonderful place and having the Bay View Guest House to stay at makes it all the more attractive.

We were a group of 6 visiting Jersey for the first time. Carolyn and Geoff were most hospitable. Rooms were very nice and comfortable. Carolyn is a very hands on innkeeper and made our stay even better. Breakfast was plentiful, nice fruit, cereals, yoghurt and a good selection for a hot breakfast. The downside, which is not a reflection on... More

I stayed here for 4 nights . First of all ,there is no view of the Bay except for a partial view from a side room . Perhaps decades ago before there were buildings built in front of the BB the Bay was visible .The building is over a hundred years old so I am sure that this is the... More

It is not fair to be critical of an establishment when referring to personal preferences, what suits yourself as an international short stay visitor, is entirely different to the requirements of our home market guests who are looking for a homely and friendly environment with great facilities and a more personal service. Our grading is given to us by the... More

A very welcoming and well run guest house. Ideal location to explore Jersey. Breakfast was excellent. Owners very helpful on places to visit and couldn't have been nicer. Bedrooms comfortable. Only downside was tiny ensuite not really suitable for 2 people. Next time we book I will ask for a bigger ensuite. We will definitely stay here again.

Cannot believe I stayed in the same place as other reviewers of this guesthouse. Ceiling of breakfast room falling down (next to the breakfast buffet). The 'friendly?' staff member at breakfast the first morning asked what I would like, I asked for scrambled eggs on toast. The response, 'there's the toaster make your own'! Carpets throughout needed cleaning. The TV... More

Julie, we cannot trace you in our records so cannot fathom why you should make such ado about nothing! February storms caused a leak and builder cut hole to investigate source and no point redecorating until he finds it and solves problem. No contamination threat to buffet or guests who were seated away from that area, not pretty but not... More
