Pomme d'or or Royal Yacht?

Just booked my flights for last week of October now trying to decide which of these hotels would be best.

Can anyone advise please?

Thanks

Hi Caryl

Both are great hotels. What I would say is to be aware that the Royal Yacht has a lively public bar/nightclub on the ground floor. It can be noisy until late on a weekend night. Some people book the hotel BECAUSE of this of course, but others prefer something a quieter. That said, for the last week of October there are likely to be less people sitting outside of an evening, and less chance that you want to sleep with the windows open anyway! The spa at the Royal Yacht is excellent.

Location wise there is nothing in it, it's really a case of taste. The Pomme is traditional, the Yacht very modern.

The two hotels are over the road from each other, i am sure you will be happy with which ever you choose. The weighbridge is a busy part of town so there is noise from customers leaving bars and nightclubs, the pomme has two next door, the yacht has one inside.

Having said this both hotels are sound proofed etc, so if you think external

noise may bother you mention this when booking and i am sure they will give you a quiet room.

The Royal Yacht has excellent retaurants, bars and a first rate spa. It really comes down to whether you prefer a more traditional or modern lively hotel.

The Raddison Blu Waterfront hotel is also evry nice and only approx 10 min walk away from Pomme d'or/Royal Yacht.

The Raddison also provise sea view rooms (if you like that sort of thing) and you can take a walk around the back of the hotel and look out over the sea.

The restaurant in the Royal Yacht is much better than the Raddison though.

never stayed in Pomme d'or.

Hope this helps

Thanks all.

Royal Yacht booked for a week in October.

Fingers crossed for some nice autumn days so we get to see Jersey.
