I booked a weekend in Jersey for my partner's 30th birthday surprise. Looking online for an outstanding hotel the Hotel La Place looked amazing on their website.
Because I booked 9 months in advance I got a big discount and paid £320 for 2 nights B&B in a Superior room. This I still thought was very expensive having stayed in 5 star London hotels for cheaper but I thought it would be worth it.
Reception was ok - we were dealt with very professionally and although we arrived early were shown to our room which was very spacious and clean. I have to say I was disappointed with the room. It really didnt look like the picture on the website.
We decided to eat in the restaurant on our first night - since we didnt know the island - the food was lovely - the service was well below what I expected! After ordering a bottle of wine the waiter literally just plonked the bottle down and walked away! We were the only people in the restaurant - it was hardly because he was too busy! - Luckily for us the bottle had a screw cap so we openned it ourselves and poured! So much for customer service!
It was downhill from then on - I found one particular waiter (both at dinner and breakfast time) both moody and rude! Was he not trained to ASK someone if they had finished their meal before removing the plate!?! I was still chewing!!
The room was 'nice'
The food was lovely
Customer service in the restaurant was awful
The bed was comfy!
Would I go back ?? No -
Was it worth £160 a night? No (and this was with a discount!!!)
Jersey itself was lovely - rained a bit but when the sun was out the island glistened!! The beaches are beautiful.
Second night we went to the Salty Dog restaurant in St Aubins ! The food, customer service, location, atmosphere was amazing!! Go there if you can !!!
