“Nothing too much trouble”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Just had a week at the hotel in jersey. All the staff were very friendly and accommodating and really looked after my wife's elderly parents. Restaurants were lovely, service faultless and rooms very adequate.
Thank you De France for making our stay so effortless

Just back from a week long stay at Hotel de France and I was very impressed. Be aware that not all rooms have views (ours included). Our room was to the back of the hotel and had no view but it did have a little balcony with a table and chairs on it. There was air conditioning in the room which we really needed as we were there during a very very hot spell. The room had a double and single bed and was very spacious and airy. The staff were all very helpful and pleasant especially Barbara at reception - you won't meet a nicer person. Breakfast each morning was plentiful and there was a good choice. The leisure facilities were great and we enjoyed using the pool area. There are plenty of sun loungers outside and around the pool. We didn't eat in the hotel restaurants as the food is very haute cuisine and not to all tastes. The hotel is decorated well and has a feel of opulence about it. In all we were very impressed and would love to return some time. Should mention that this hotel is about a 20 minute walk into St. Helier up a slight hill and it may be advisable to hire a car if staying here.

Room Tip: If a view is important ask for one otherwise you may be disappointed.

Stayed here i the middle of a holiday in France. The reception staff were very helpful, & upgraded us to one of the new rooms in the spa wing. Room was great with a balcony looking down onto St.Helier.
We ate on the terrace twice, food was excellent, if a bit pricey, but par for the course at hotel restaurants!
One of the main drawbacks is the distance from the town centre, walking down is ok, but it's a £7-8 taxi fare back to the hotel.
Overall a very good hotel, but make sure you get the best deal online?

The staff throughout the hotel were fantastic. We stayed in a spa room and had two huge doors where you could just about see the sea from your bed. A shame there is a huge medical centre in front of it (worried us when we first pulled into the hotel!) but the actual building is lovely and the spa etc is a real bonus - a great selection of pools/steamroom/sauna/plunge pool/massage pools etc. Great for when the wind got a bit too much on the beach!

We had a lovely stay here, the staff were super helpful and really made it for us. The rooms were lovely and the food in the hotel was surprisingly good. A great base from which to explore Jersey but also come back to a bit of room service and a leisurely soak in the spa and pool when we felt like being lazy!

I've already recommended it to friends and wouldn't hesitate to return here when we are next in Jersey. Very good value for the location/area and I'm pleased we stayed here rather than the more expensive 5* option or the 3* seafront location option.

Last minute booking and have to say it was brilliant, the facilities were great and the restaurants both served beautiful food. Ate in saffrons which was sublime, if you can try the tasting menu with wine... Michelin star food and drink. The staff are friendly and helpful. The only down side was the breakfast, which wasn't very organised but I can over look it for the rest of the experience.

I was here for 2 nights on business.
The prices for St Helier was good in my opinion. The facilities are quite good, especially the gym and pool, I managed to use them one night and really enjoyed them.
I dined at the restaurant both nights and the food was reasonably good. The service was good the first night, but I would say the service was merely adequate on the 2nd night.
Overall I would say I did like the place, but for me the biggest down side is the position. I do like to go out for a wander before dinner, but this hotel is just too far away for my usual early evening jaunt, kind of annoying really because I don't like to eat in the hotel diners every night.
Still, not a bad place and decent value for money.

What a beautiful chateau - shame they have had other buildings erected in front of it and it is about 15 minutes walk from centre. However, they do have an amazing Spa and continental type Wellness centre with Hot and cold plunge pools, steam room and lreally good swimming pool with massage pool as well! Just the place for indulgent relaxation. The Spa upstairs was expensive but exceedingly high quality - I had the best foot massage of my life there and could happily have been carried to my room!!!

Most of the bedrooms are dated but they do have very modern rooms available at an upgrade price. We thought it would be worth it to us. Nothing wrong with the majority of the rooms, just a bit ordinary. Confortable and clean and very nice staff. The front of house manager was exceptional.

The breakfast was the best of our stay - we tried three hotels.

Room Tip: We would certainly go for the new modern spa rooms. Good views over the centre and the sea - lots o...
