“Large, clean hotel with good amenities”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Yes there are more luxurious hotels in Jersey but these can often be over-priced and pretentious and without the range of amenities that the Hotel De France offers. The reasons we continue to return to this hotel when visiting Jersey are: it is always clean and excellently maintained, well located centrally for exploring the island, single rooms at good value, staff are helpful and polite, the spa/grounds area is excellent, although a large hotel it never seems crowded, good choice of breakfast. We will certainly continue to use the hotel when visiting Jersey and would recommend to friends (A good sign I feel!).

To improve: better range of spa treatments and king size beds instead of standard doubles.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floors at the front of the building have amazing views across St Helier and the sea...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Having holidayed in Jersey for the past 6 years, we decided to give Hotel De France a try. We were not disappointed.
Having read a few reviews on here saying it was dated and too far from the centre, we were a bit concerned, but need not have been.
The room was clean and well maintained. Each day the maid would place his teddies on the bed in different poses. Really made his holiday special and funny.
We ate in all the restaurants - Café Aroma great bistro food, Saffrons superb tasting menu, Orangery simple but great buffet menu. Bars very comfortable. Brilliant spa facility.
Super Kids club and entertainment, especially Royston the Magic Man
Walked into St Helier a couple of times, which took approx. 15 mins, but very easy. Would recommend the route through Millenium Park

A great classy family hotel of which we would highly recommend

What makes it a great hotel - the staff. Everyone was very attentive and friendly

Thanks

Last minute booking which turned out to be favourable. Lovely spa facilities. Friendly , helpful staff. Spacious , comfortable and clean room. Plenty of choice at breakfast time. Café Aroma best for lunch or snacks. Plenty of eating places in St. Helier.

Room Tip: Room with a good view ..............512. Front of building. Double room with single occupancy.

Having just booked in for 5 days with my 2 teenage sons, we have been very pleased with the quality and location of the Hotel and facilities.
I would recommend the Hotel to anyone who is planning a trip to Jersey.

Room Tip: Try to ask for a room away from the Elevator lobby as it can be quite noisy.

The rooms are located in the new part, and are spacious but without character. You've got all you need, but the room could be anywhere.

The beds and pillows are very hard, and the room has individual air conditioning unit, one of those blocks on wheelies.

Staff are nice and helpful, breakfast is good and plentiful.

The spa is very good, but to get there you need to walk through the lobby in your bathrobe, not pleasant.

The killer are the steps to the hotel. If you are on foot, you will need to climb up to get to the hotel.

The hotel is beautiful . Good size rooms and fabulous pools . However the breakfast is always cold and not great .
The staff is just ok , they will do what we ask but no one understands the meaning of the extra mile .
Had a fantastic facial and back massage in the hairdresser and beauty salon within the hotel . It was the best beauty treatment I have ever had with a lady called Frances .

First time in Hotel de France was back in 1957 ! Thats a long, long time ago! I remember it well and the classic elegance has been updated over the years to maintain and provide the luxurious comfort todays traveller expects. Several bars and restaurants, large spa and swimming pool of the highest standard. Super breakfast menu. Within reasonable (10minutes) walking distance from the centre of St.Heliers shopping and business centre. (When in town, well worth a visit is the Victorian marked.) As well suited as a family holiday or a most comfortable business meeting hotel. You can't go wrong.
